If the 18+ posts here encouraged you to work a few more years, that might tell you to take a bigger step back and rethink the overall plan.

What I means is, it sounds like your original plan may have been based more on flimsy hopes rather than solid information.

I'm glad we caught you in time!

I like the flex as advocated by anothercog. You have time for at least 2 more mini careers if you find something interesting and stay in a place... especially if you choose to put down roots for a family.

I was just rereading the thread and when I hit my previous post, it struck me that it must have been hours before this:

What does that have to do with anything? I suppose it brings up a lot of "cute" sayings, like: Make every day count. Plan for the best but prepare for the worst. "Enjoy every sandwich." Are you ready? etc.

In any case, I didn't mean to upset the flow of the thread, but somehow I think we all have to keep in mind that (if we have some good friends) some day, they'll be writing something about how much they loved us, now that we're. gone.

Returning you now...
