Been a freelancer for 10+ years, thinking of quitting

I'm new around here
I don't see getting my degree as really an option anymore. I looked into it, and I'd basically be going to school part time at night for upwards of 10 years. I'm not spending the majority of my weeknights in my 40s at a university. I'd rather be with my family. Plus, the only companies that really care about a college degree for PHP programming when someone has as much experience as I do are the large corporate companies that I'd rather not work for anyways. I can make over $100k easily with only my highschool diploma. I don't really need to make more than that; I don't need to be rich to be happy. Most smaller companies don't care about college degrees if you have lots of experience.
I went ahead and accepted that job, and started today. This stuff is amazingly simple compared to what I'm used to doing as a freelancer. I'm already helping the project manager with PHP and CSS questions that nobody else in the company knows the answer to.
