I was out of the workforce several times:

+ 4 years for college (worked over summers and had a work-study job).

+ 9.5 years as a SAHM (I quit my job when I got sure don't hear about that sort of thing any more!)

~ 6 years part-time (25-30 hrs/week).

+ 10 years for early retirement (quit just before my 56th birthday).


Once I quit my job to take a 4-month camping trip. Another time I took 3 months off to move and get married.

Let's face it...I'm a slacker! (I did work hard when I was, you know, actually at work ;-)
