Welcome to the forum.
I can't say "Welcome to ER," because I'm not yet there myself. Still plodding along, trying to w*rk off some legacy debt from childraising. So I'm wildly envious of you lucky dogs on the sunny side.
But just because my own Special Day is still a ways off doesn't mean I begrudge anyone else their own good fortune. All Hail rickmc17! May you live long and prosper.
And may you continue to post with anecdotes of how fabulous freedom is. Feeding my envy adds incentive for me to get my own keister out the door asap.
