Ending ER and returning to w**k ????

Okay, here's my story.

Took a buyout in 2008

Surprised by a new baby son in 2010. Already have an older son (now in Gr 6).

Now thinking of finding a money-generating activity this September, since baby son will enter pre-school.

Challenge is to find an activity that is fun, and that I want to actually commit to, after now almost 5 years of freedom.

Anyone else in a similar situation? How did you find that "new activity that generates money"?

And did you find that volunteering just doesn't cut it?

Hi Vickko. What are you main goals for this ? Shore up your retirement nest egg ? Find something to do to stave off boredom ? Earn extra "fun money" that you can spend at will ?

What would you be doing if you hadn't had a new little one in 2010? Do that.
