Yet another OMYer

Speaking of politics, on behalf of the country, thanks for working a third of your year just to pay all of those taxes! (Sorry, just trying to motivate you :-)). It's amazing you have both a high household income and low expenses. Well done. I can understand the reluctance to quit because it sounds like your married life is focused on work, which is something you built over a long period and a lot to just chuck. We're kind of the same, though when I see your salaries, I wonder about our sanity for being that way.

What if you set a goal to go on a long vacation together to somewhere you really want to go and see how you do? Or, just keep OMYing until something changes and you "know." Congrats on your options.

Yeah, pretty sweet!

One day you will "have enough" or get "pissed off" one too many times and then you'll know -

Retired at 59 in 2014. Should have done it sooner but I worried too much.

You would still be better off than most others.

OK, I took a leap today. I gave my boss unofficial notice that I plan on leaving next year (probably around February). Only six months to go and I have quite a bit of vacation and comp time so it should hopefully go by quickly.
