Thanks for hand holding me for 5 years!

Today is the fifth anniversary of my RE, after 35 years of 10-12 hour days in the bowels of Mother Earth. While I thought my RE was possible, I had some doubt, but not as much as DW, as she RE'd 8 months later. Thanks to Forum Members who backed up my strategy and confirmed my decisions over the past 5 years.

With God's help, we are enjoying our grandchildren, our friends, our travels, our garden, our wine and our health. It is a blessing that we are so grateful for.

Glad to hear your retirement is on track for many years of happiness. I'm on year 4 at this time and the forum has helped get me through some questions.

Congrats! Great feeling, living free of work stress. IMHO it doesn't get old, just better. We wake up in gratitude everyday. DH still consults but he enjoys it from home.
