One of the biggest problems with a 40 hour job is how inflexible your time is. I just finished a couple of days sheparding my daughter through a surgical procedure that was unexpected. If I had been working, the logistics would have been difficult-getting time off, reassigning work, cancelling meetings, etc. As it was, I just took a couple a books wherever we went, and drifted through the process (well, a little natural motherly agitation). The inevitable delays were no big deal, because I didn't have to rush off anywhere.

Dealing with medical problems is no treat, but being retired makes them more bearable.

The traffic on this board has been incredible. Take a couple of days off, and you're 300 posts behind.
