I am planning to leave my job of 17 years, sometime next spring.

I want to spend more time with our daughter before she graduates high school and frankly, I just flat out need a break.

I've been working steadily since college for 23 years and before that, I always worked one or even two! part time jobs.

We will have a dramatic cut in household income, but having always been frugal, we have a nest egg that should carry us just fine until I figure out what I want to do with the rest of my life.

My husband has a good income, with health insurance.

So, in a nutshell, I am more concerned about the huge psychological shift...I was a type A for many years, advanced degrees, certifications, all that..

I would be interested in hearing the stories or getting advice from others who made a similar transition after years in the workforce.

Thank you, MP
