Thanks for the tip about 401k catchup contribution. I didn't even know about that until now. I'll have to check if my company's plan even has it. I actually got a big chunk of my 401k contribution returned last year due to their plan having too many highly compensated employees. That cost me at least a couple thousand in taxes. But if I'm reading the catchup rules correctly, the catchup contribution should not get rejected even if the HCE limit kicks in again.
I'll take your words to heart about changing my attitude towards the job. I've been kind of an over-stressed, over-working idiot up til now and just waking up from that. I think seeing it as a vehicle to fund the next phase of my life will help greatly.
Yeah I may have gone a bit overboard on the 100k
