MI, sorry, I'm a right-tail Boomer who identifies more as an X-er, and have no idea what that means. :lol:

One more year.

Interestingly, I’m a Millennial who seems to connect better with the Xers.

Ah, okay. Yeah, something like that. Certainly close enough that it is starting to feel real. It's not going to be as easy as I once thought. I've never approached ER from a perspective of hating my job or working. But I'm starting to run out of excuses. :lol:

Alas, if only foresight was as sharp as hindsight. I'll probably say it someday too, assuming enough of the potential risks do not manifest themselves over time. The hazards of being a conservative person by nature.
