After my hubby & I were retired for about 6 months we both wanted to work p.t. but not have our schedules rigidly controlled by others. About that time I had an offer to teach an online college class & also to do some consulting work in my field. My hubby found a p.t. engineering job -that was something he did not think was possible. We are both happier then we have ever been-it's now been 2 years. I think everyone has to find what works for them.

I hear ya. I didn't mention it in my original post, but I had a similar wake-up call: a seemingly very healthy acquaintance (a few years younger than me) died suddenly a few months ago. As we age, those wake-up calls are only likely to increase, until we're the ones making the call. I'd like to make the most of my time on this earth before then -- and, in my case, leaving the corporate life behind is a necessary first step.
