Re: Pulling the trigger on Monday

Well, it seems that some friends of mine told some other people about my pending retirement, and I got 4 unsolicited offers to consult for companies all around the country, working from home in my underwear in front of my PC. Like Michael Corleone, just when I thought that I was out they pull me back in.

The work sounds interesting and up my alley, and $120/hr ain't chickenfeed, so I think I'll put off my 72T for the next year or so and sock some more money away. *At least I'm free of the 8-5 grind at my old workplace, and I can work at a job of my choosing at my own pace.

I think I'll still have enough free time to become an amateur luthier and spend time with my family, in fact I'll make sure that I have enough time for that.
nearly50, just keep in mind that money isn't everything and make sure you don't let the lure of extra filthy lucre keep you away from what is most important. You don't get back the extra time you spend at work.
