    I Need A Plan

    What's your advice on making a plan? What should I consider???? I have been at home with the kids... done wonderful job with them... but dying inside. How can I create a plan? Make a life I like... keep it healthy for the kids. Not make the same mistake again.

    Hopefully I Will Be Rich Enough Not To Worry When I'm Too Old To Worry About Money.

    So I'll probably stop,

    drop and roll. Then commando crawl to the nearest exit. Or I'll jump up, throw my hands in the air, yell like a mad man, and run around like a chicken with its head chopped off. Either way it'll be memorable:)

    I Had One

    I can laugh now, because I left my marriage that "looked so awesome" to everyone else, from the outside.  I literally would write out on paper lists of what I would need to buy, pack, and prepare for an escape.  Example:  Buy boat and keep it docked in an ocean marina, and...
