Congratulations. What's that saying about making your own luck? I second the comment on firing the FA. You will have time now to DIY.

Well, it hasn't taken long and my network for job searching has me set up with a second interview with a company on a job that sounds really good. My DW is thrilled, more so than me because I wasn't sure I wanted to work again or not, but as they say :"happy wife,happy life". Reading the comments here, it sounds like the general feeling is if you have second thoughts about not working, then don't stop. You will know when you are ready. A job change may be all I need because the thought of playing golf every day scared me more than changing jobs.

sounds like you have some reservation about calling it quit. Unless you really enjoy working, a job change just prolongs the inevitable. Sooner or later you will confront the issue with your wife again when you decide that you really want to retire. Too many people falls victim to the "one more year" syndrome.

Well Indy good luck with the new job, given this website is focused on ER many of us envy the position you have and think its crazy not to use your FI. One thing that has helped me as I approach my FI finish line I don't worry much about job security in fact it would make transition easier since I wouldn't feel the temptation of OMY at a high pay. Again congrats on a great nest egg that let's you do what you want.
