My wife and I had a great discussion last night about my ER status. Up until now, the target date of my ER has been "sometime late in 2014". We have now agreed that after a nice July holiday on Vancouver Island, celebrating our anniversary, I will give my employer my official notice on my return to the city.
Early retirement will commence on October 1st, 2014, in my 42nd year. Haven't yet been able to convince my wife to join me. She is not convinced that we can both quit our jobs, despite the math saying otherwise. She does seem to love her job, I'll give her that - that not something I experienced in almost 25 years in my own career.
