My 1-year anniversary here

I just realized that I joined the site and made my first post on 2/10/21. I just went back and reread that intro post where I said I might go part time in 2-3 years. As it turns out, I went part time November 28, 2021 and am now seriously looking at taking the next step, very possibly before the end of this year.

Thank you to everyone who has answered all of my questions and given me such great advice.

Well that isn't necessarily a good thing . I probably spend a bit more time online than I ought to. Imagine what will happen when I'm actually retired.
