Wow. You called it exactly. Just showed my wife all the emails and it cheered her up. Thanks everyone!

This is not my first rodeo. Take the advice about keeping spending lean and building a cushion. Keep an eye on her stress, and what you're doing to push _her_ dreams forward. Remember nonverbal signals are frequently more important than verbal.

If any of those dimensions are in deficit for any sustained period of time, make adjustments up to and including a "real" job.

Do this. I know things.

I get the feeling this is the most valuable advice I'll get this year. Thanks!

All values are relative. But by my lights, yeah, I paid a pretty high price for it.

Listen to this guy. He does know things. As someone who has been down this road many times, take his advice.
