If you're questioning the headband, just know, she had ALOT of wine.
Her official retirement date is May 31, 2015 (but since she has only worked Monday-Wednesday for the past year and a half it was May 27, 2015). Don't fret for her too much, she has plenty off plans to keep her busy. Not to mention, now that her and Aunt Mary are retired at the same time, I'm sure those two gals will be going off and gallivanting like crazy. And they have road rage, so watch out!!
I think that it was bittersweet for her. Even though she has been excitedly awaiting this day, you have to remember that she's basically been here for forty-one years. She started working at the company in the summer when she was fifteen and started full-time when school was over. With the exception of a few months here and there, she has been here. And now, she's retired.
The first Monday here without her in the office, I was sitting alone and had forgotten to turn the radio on, I immediately text her and told her that this was weird. But that I was still extremely happy for her. She replied with- "You'll have to come see me and I'll have to come visit you on weekends and we have to get together!" To which I replied- "Of course! You do know that even though you're not my co-worker anymore that you're still my aunt Susi, right? I mean, we're gonna see each other." And she of course called me a smartass and all was right with the world.
Congratulations, Aunt Susi!! You're going to enjoy this and you deserve it ten folds!!
