It only gets shorter. But don't worry, you will grow accustomed to lack of autonomy and before long you won't be able to remember that it was once different.

How about using OPBs? (Other People's Boats)
There is a lot of people looking for crew/sailing buddies.

So, a bit of an update for anyone who reads this.

I have finished two books;

1) The Little Book of Common Sense Investing (Bogle)
2) The Four Pillars of Investing (Bernstein)

I just wanted to say thanks (the thread that suggests these books and others are locked). I have thoroughly enjoyed them and I have three more I'm planning on reading. I've already read more of about investing motivation or economics. It's great to be learning in a new area. I have also enjoyed keeping up with the discussions here (and trying not to barge in).

Thanks again!

Oh, and we've cashed on a CD to pay off the car. My 403(b) input is now 9%, I will continue to raise it 2% every six months; giving myself time to adjust to the changed income.
