Both of us are employable. We could return to our fields and gain employment again. It wouldn't be overly difficult. We both get offers.
What is the purpose of working outside of the home for us? Time filled with meetings and paperwork. We would have more community- but not necessarily of our choosing.
What do we do when we are home? Hobbies, travel, talk to family on the phone, watch the hawks migrate. Working means we would not be able to pull the boat to the lake on warm summer days!
Do you ever feel that pull?
Like you SHOULD be working?
Do you feel that "Protestant work ethic" that someone not engaged in commerce is wasting time?
