  •  So sorry have had a rough.... (10+ / 0-)

    year.  I wish I had some magic answers for you, but count your blessings about family, retroactive healthcare, son getting counseling....

    Maybe you can do some self employment, are you good with stuff?  Maybe a handyman, there are lots of single/older men and women that need help around the house.  How about pet sitting?  Are you good with numbers?  Maybe helping people manage their finances, say bookkeeping, taxes, etc....

    Just tossing it out there....I went from being a relatively well paid professional to being a maid.  It can be done, you can keep you own hours and your boss won't be an asshole.  The service industry is great for us boomers.  Everyone needs help...

    •  Thanks Bubba. (10+ / 0-)

      I'd love to be self employed.  I have moved back to my home town in Minnesota with a population of about 800, so my best opportunity is probably going to be on the internet doing something.  I'm just trying to scrape up enough money to buy a decent computer for it.  The one I'm on right now is, I believe, 14 years old.  Mine died shortly my wife became ill.
