Guys, this might be the booze talking but I'm so glad to be a part of this community. I posted my little thread, went to work and came back to find a really thoughtful discussion with good points and things I hadn't considered. So, thanks for making some random thoughts that I put down before running out the door into something really smart.
ETA: I'm also glad that people understood that I was getting at—that what I was feeling wasn't all in my head.
ETA2: I got distracted and forgot to link to the thread I was talking about. Oops.
