Agree 100%. And I think I'll have much better luck deciding to be happy once I'm out the door!

Ohhhh, me too! That light at the end of the tunnel grows ever brighter.

Of course it is hard for the work stuff to get to me anymore. I really am in full KMA mode this last year.

I would early retire in a minute if i had a good plan for health insurance!
How do you nice folks handle health care????
