    Congratulations! I hope you make the best of your time now! My grandma retired at 50 years old, 1 year ago (she's my grandpa's second wife and is quite younger than him - hence her being too young to be my real grandma) but she got called back to work.....which turns out to be more relaxing than the life she had being retired since there was no job to go to, she got ALL the house work and errands to run. However she is also rasing my cousin since my aunt is a recovering drug addict. Sad story.

    Anyhow, WOOOOOHOOOOOO!!!!! for you!

    I work for agovernment agency inOhio in the Office of Research, Assessment and Accountability. I am a regional officemanager supervising a group of research management analysts. We review, audit and assessthe work of 22 countyagencies (many Appalachian counties) to ensure compliance with piles and mountains of federal government rules and regulations and to ensure they are spending state and federal tax payer money correctly, not to mention appropriately servicing their clients.

    I design statistically valid sampling methodologies, write massive volumes of gobbledigook oncompliance or noncompliance with federal law, financially sanction or rewardagencies based on performance and compliance and generally save the state40 to 80 million dollars a year. It's a great job for someone with a politcal science and math or statistics background. It's also demanding, exhausting and underpaid. I am blessed with a group ofvery bright, hard working, slightly or very crazy, out right driven employees.

    Been doing this type work for 30 years, have survived many goofy and down-right badadministrations, directors, governors, cancer, an autoimmune disease and now I really need to go have a life, tend my home and family and animals.

    If I get another job, it will be the same thing I did as a 12 year old - mucking out stalls at the local stable. No, I am not kidding. No one messed with an adolescent with a pitchfork and no one will mess with a grumpy middle-aged wild woman with a pitchfork.Cleaning up horse crap back in the 1960's was the better of the 2 jobs in the long run. :) :) :)

    Freedom hugs to you!
