It's almost time

Hello - I've been a lurker on here for a while, and decided it's time to get involved.

This spring I cut my work week to 3 days, with the hopes to be completely done in the spring of 2016.

My Husband was planning also being done then, but just received a corporate offer and will be done next month....WOW!

Excited and nervous at the same time.

I'll keep learning from all your experiences on ways to deal with the new things to come. (relocating, staying motivated, keeping connected,.......)

If you are FI, and were planning to go soon anyway, then don't be to nervous.
