Before we left the house this morning, DW said "I wish we could find our passion in life." Not sure where that came from, maybe seeing Oprah's goodbye comments over and over. AN-Y-WAY... I jumped on that one!

First thing I did when I got to work was email her and tell her (again) that my current job is NOT my passion in life and, if we DID have something like that in mind, would she be comfortable pursuing it? I said my little side business is the closest thing I have to a passion at the moment.

She responded that she's at peace with me retiring soon!

It probably won't be until January of 2012 but that's within sight and something that I can smile about every day between now and then!

Congratulations! Now your main job is to find whatever DW can be passionate about in ER. Hey, maybe she could get excited about archeological accounting records in Egypt (leading to travel), etc, etc.

She says she still enjoys the students (college) so I think, when classes start up again and she's busy again, she'll get reinvigorated.

Very conservative with investments. Not ER'd yet, 48 years old. Please do not take anything I write or imply as legal, financial or medical advice directed to you. Contact your own financial advisor, healthcare provider, or attorney for financial, medical and legal advice.
