I have been double dipping for a few years now....small pension from previous employer and current paycheck. The paycheck will stop this year and the pension is way to small to live on so the nest egg will be tapped for living expenses soon.
I am substitute teaching and coaching a varsity high track team now. is that called still working??
NOPE! It really is a blast I work when I want to, coaching is my hobby and I get out of the house and out of my wifes hair!
This is soooo nice.
I have dental insurance, I have a prescription plan, Great medical insurance all for pennies, Part of my benefits package from my retirement.
Oh wow just got a paycheck from the school district today for my 8 days of sub teaching!
Life is good. 8)
