    That would involve recalculation too often; a daily count means it's not on my mind as much.

    I have 22 years before I can retire...does it even make sense for me to count the hours....

    And add a 5 year old to the mix who started Kindergarten today and has dreams of becoming a doctor.


    Nah, won't be retiring any time soon.

    Hawk, if only I still had 22 years before turning 65!

    I did that already ...

    As have a few of us in here. I know full well you won't believe it, but it is true that "Youth is wasted on the young." Time seems to drag for you at the moment, but it most definitely will not when you get older. It will seem to just fly by before you are ready.

    In the meantime ...enjoy your daughter's growing up, her first boyfriend, her first dance, even getting her through her first 'heartbreak', making her study her buns off to make good grades, attending her graduations, etc.

    Hang in there girl. You'll get there sooner than you think!

    Guesstimating your age as 38 when the baby came. Same age of wife when my son was born. I was 50 and it scared me to death. But here he is 19 and starting the second year of college and it's been great. Enjoy what you can while you can.

    The young lady will be graduating college before you turn around. Stay involved with her as much as she will let you.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

    Who knows....
    I have the same feelings. I'm now in the middle of another acquisition at work.............. Just did this drill a little over two years ago with a different buy out. I love my job and my co-workers but these situations are often a nightmare.

    You can retire at 45? That is great!
