I have 4.5months left in my job and then I'm going to be free - no more getting up at 5am and working through my lunch time, no more stress trying to accomplish the impossible to meet deadlines. We have savings in the bank and own two houses, plus I have a big life insurance policy that will be paid out in September. Work - who needs it? Goodbye stress, hallo more training time, more time with our dogs, more sleep time, more time with my OH, please yourself when/where you travel. And one of my first pleasures will be to re-decorate the house we are living in.
