Congratulations!
The feeling of hearing that Sunday night 60 minute -tick- tick -tick of the clock and knowing you don't have to go to work the next morning is priceless.
You will wake up Monday with a huge grin on your face.
Fix your DW a wonderful dinner and nice glass of wine to come home too. :-)
