Just introducing myself...

Hello all,
Just wanted to say that I enjoy these fine forums of yours. I've read quite a bit of posts on this site and the positivity and "everybody working towards a similar goal" mentality is refreshing.

As for my ability to retire early... well, I am hopeful! I am 35 and married with a not-quite-one-year-old son. Our combined 401k balance is around 100K (when the market is at 11k),we have a separate IRA of a couple thousand, and a savings account with 5-6K.. our safety net. I'm hoping that time is kind to us.

bryan

Also, I have been ripping dryer sheets in half ever since I have bought dryer sheets. I'm all over that.. not sure about the recycling (or re-using?) them, however.

halcyon, welcome to the boards. The real hardcore LBYMers among us don't use dryer sheets at all. They are just a waste of money!

West side... far west side. About halfway between Cleveland and Cedar Point.

I once saw Cleveland at night from a train, very pretty. Be sure to take the two polls on "Where we live."

Welcome to the forum.
