tmeri asks,

So my question is, if you found a job that wasn't too obnoxious, would you ever consider working, even part time, again? What are the issues you'd consider when making such a decision?

Yes I would consider working again. Like you I retired on a bare bones budget. A SWR easily covers all of my current essential expenses. However if I want something outside of the budget, either I have to scrimp somewhere else, do some money-making activity, or do without.

What will probably drive me back to work is concerns about Medicare going away. Whenever I did my FIRE budget, I only budgeted for Medicare supplement insurance after age 65.

One thing that is nice about being FIREd is that I can afford to work on a job that is fun but may not pay much money. I have always like libraries and think it would be to work in one.

If I couldn't get a fun job, then I would want that pays good :-)
