Volunteer or find a part-time job

My parents finally got their last chickadee out of the nest. My mom is retired but my dad decided to keep working after all. She's pretty bored and is having a hard time figuring out what to do...

She finally decided to take a part time job at a local arts organization. I think that helping someone stay on top of their to-dos and appointments fills the void we left when we moved out.

Find something you love that's in line with the things you loved to do for your family or in your work life. This is a great new chapter, and doing so could open up all kinds of doors!
