I have enjoyed reading your posts for quite a while. I started reading the posts over at Motely Fool under LYMB. I'm 54 and think I will retire in a few years. The latest will be '08. It may be sooner, as the politics at work are sometimes mind numbing.
I'm one of the lucky ones as I work for local government. I could retire now and be fine. I managed to stay out of debt and saved some on the side. I actually enjoy tracking my expenses.
No kids and No DH. I'm debating whether to stay here. I have no mortgage, so that is a big plus, but it has become so crowded here. Grew up in So. Cal. But I figure I have lots of time to consider my options.
Obviously now is not the time to sell.
I will add my 2 cents when I have them!
