BTW--do you have savings, a spouse, parents, or trust funds to support you while you take time off? How certain are you to find work easily when you feel like going back? (I'm not trying to pick on you--I retired early just a few months ago myself, but I made sure I had myself covered financially first.)

Hi - thanks for the reply! I plan to take about a month off, I figure worst case it will take about 2-3 months to find a new job, so I've saved enough cash and changed my lifestyle to support myself for about a year. I'm happy I didn't approach this decision in a rash manner and had time to plan for it.

I'm happy to hear that having a plausible explanation will help to avoid any complications. I am taking time off so I can regain some lost enthusiasm for the working world....A*Man
