My other comments after seven months

1) Everyday is a Saturday but you still need to keep track of the week to put out the trash, get the senior citizen discounts and so on.
2) Sleeping in is nice
3) The cats are happy to have us both around more.
4) I am finally getting caught up on those books I said I would read.

Angels danced on the day that you were born.

+1 (and everything else).

I also found it hard to explain this to people who are still working.

I am considering to go back though for a little while to up the reserves and/or start a new company, but I know for sure the transition will be painful.

Tough choice, but not in a rush to make it
