That is why I decided to sell on ebay instead of taking one of the many part time nursing jobs that were offered . I wanted the flexibility . I just returned from a trip to visit my daughter and next week I'm leaving on an eight day cruise . I just remove my items from ebay and re list when I return . I have no interest in a regularly scheduled job especially if I have to get out of my PJ's to do it .

Maybe I need to talk to you about how one gets started selling on ebay. I really would not know how to even get started. I have only bought one thing off of ebay several years ago and have only been to ebay a couple of times. It sounds like I am missing out.

You were just being practical. You said you hoped to try ER #2 at age 55, so does that mean you only have 18 months to go? If that's the case, then you're almost there
