I'm using OMY to more to reduce future anticipated expenses that to add to our current cushion. We are doing home improvements that we had budgeted for future years, but figured why not just take of them know with our current income. We may end up spending around $50-60K but given our current income and expenses we will still able to have some additional savings.

Interestingly, the Megacorp BS has been reduced. The last corporate layoff hit our group hard, and our management is sensing that many of us are in a position to retire and are ready to pull the cord... so things have gotten better in terms of time and my ability to control my workload. Such temptation...

Current target FIRE date: June 2017 or +50K to the portfolio, whichever comes first
