to retire for 1 week!!!!!!

Ok -- I'm secretly pleased as punch with my self but the big picture is a little daunting.


But that's just a lot of water
Underneath a bridge I burned
And there's no use in backtracking
Around corners I have turned

You are funny. I was insanely jealous, for about 7 seconds.

Retirement.... sigh.

Digging up bodies in hopes of finding retirement money is kinda creepy hexed...

Best thing I ever did was start my own retirement account. I started it when I went back to work after my sons were in school. I didn't put a lot in it at first, but I kept plugging away.

Then when I got D, I told XWH that we should both keep our individual retirement accounts. He readily agreed because he didn't realize I had more in mine than he did in his. I did my homework!

Good for you hexed - you will get there!
