A New Season

I had planned to keep working 4 days a week until I was 66 but it is looking like I just physically can't do it. My employer was very cooperative when I cut back to 4 days a week. Now I have requested 3 days a week and they are once again working with me on it. They are even letting me keep my benefits and insurance. I am quite relieved. DH is still working full time and wants us to switch to his health insurance just in case I have to quit altogether.

As Ecclesiastes 3:1 says "There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under heaven." It looks like this is the time for more rest and less work.

Welcome to the 'club'.

Glad you are feeling better.

I hate that you're not planning to cut back because you don't want to work, but because your health is forcing the issue. So much of everyone's future work/retirement plans depend on one's health. Keeping my fingers crossed that you have more say in this situation. And I, too, am glad you're feeling better.

Thank you for your well wishes. Life seems to throw us some curves. I am fortunate to have an employer who is willing to work with me, fortunate to have health insurance and access to medical care, and a dear family to help me navigate this circumstance.
