i retired from IT a long time ago and love being able to do about what i want when i want. i was lucky that i had mostly decent managers and flex time so not too bad for most of it. hard to consider going back to work, but i may sometime eventually. right now gardener is a good enough description to me....
It really is. They ride the school bus home every day and get here at 2:45pm. I try to keep 2:45-3:00pm meeting-free so I can at least greet them, but on days where I have to work with a client during that time, it's not a huge deal because the older daughter is mature enough to be trusted to fix after-school snacks for her and little sister, make sure both get started on homework, etc. My office hours are 7:30am-4:00pm with a 30-minute lunch, so I'm fully available to them if needed from 4pm on just about every day. My wife and I have talked (well, joked...) about what it would take for me to even consider taking a job where I'd have to go to an office every day, and we're thinking it'd have to be something outrageous like a 40% or better pay increase before I'd even listen.
enjoy it while you got it. sounds nice.
