Boy is this ever timely.

I’m about 3 weeks out from maybe getting laid off. I say maybe because we’re getting emails that say maybe this or maybe that, then a month of silence. I’m 56 with a boatload saved in my 401K and I don’t really need another job if I decide to just stay home.

Yeah I don’t usually get unemployment because I find new jobs before I qualify for it. Maybe this time?

I would have stayed through 60 because DH wants to work till 60 but it’s really tempting to just…stay unemployed. Really tempting.

You know what I want to do? I want to counsel college kids on money. How do I get a job doing that?
