Even Eagles Need a Push!
Well, a few days to digest the news, the opportunity to talk with Penny, and I've had a serious attitude adjustment! I'm now retired. Well, not exactly, but until something else comes along, that is my mind set and it is much easier to deal with it. I still haven't told my granddaughter, but there is no rush for that. She has had such a hard time since her parents separated, that I want to make this Christmas as nice and peaceful for her as I can. She dreads the holidays right now (unfulfilled expectations). So, I want her to understand the only expectations are the ones we put on ourselves. Don't worry about disappointing others, do what makes you happy.

I'm glad you've had time to focus on things and make a decision, even if it is temporary. Your grand daughter will get through this difficult time w/ your love and reassurance. I'm sure she'll feel wonderful being included in festivities and "family" time like baking cookies and whatnot. Grammas always come through. :)
