Well - I did it. Last month I left my company. Today I called my 401K administrator and told them to Show Me the Money, I'm gonna raise this baby myself from now on (self-directed IRA). I don't have any technical questions for you folks at this point - I think I have my initial prep work under control - but am really here just to solicit some calming words! This is by far the most money I've ever had to manage and I'm feeling a tad fearful that I'm going to screw this up! Heck - I may never work up the courage to move the money out of the money market where it will find its humble beginnings.

Any and all fortifying sentiments welcome.
