Oh, you guys found my wife's letter to the advice column.

Retired in 2013 at age 33. Keeping busy reading, blogging, relaxing, gaming, and enjoying the outdoors with my wife and 3 kids (5, 11, and 12).

That is exactly how I'm going to feel about it when I finally get to quit my job and retire.

I can honestly say that whatever pot of gold I'm able to reap from my almost 30 years working has been by the grace of God, and my own hard work and/or luck. I've never received any financial assistance from family or friends, except for my Mom paying for my college education, which only amounted to about $5000 in 80's (that's not a typo...that was $5k, not $50k).

So when I finally am able to call it quits, walk out the door, and do whatever I want, I'm going to do exactly that. I've worked for it, I deserve it, and I'm going to enjoy life. If somebody I was in a relationship with happened to resent that...there's the door.
