I've been a stay-at-home Dad for a little more than 20 years. In a few weeks my youngest will be going off to college and I will be making the transition from "stay-at-home Dad" to merely unemployed.
And a couple weeks after that I will turn 60.
I would love to go back to work -- and with 2 kids in college I have plenty of incentive -- but given my age, interrupted work history and the current state of the economy ... finding a job's going to be a challenge.
In the meantime, as homework and after school driving demands have lessened, I've had a little more time to read! I also do some volunteer work at a local hippotherapy center.
Also, I had some short stories published back in the 70s. I'm getting them up on the web as ebooks ... and I've started writing some new ones.
Maybe, if I can get a job, I'll be able to contemplate retirement at 85.
