Right now that is not an option, I am the only care giver for my wife of 47 years that is recovering from breast cancer, radiation and chemo. She is on a lot of meds and I can not risk leaving her alone for long periods, I was once in the yard for 4 hours mowing and weeding, came in and found her on the floor, unable to get up. I worked all my life since age 14 to age 64, lost my business when housing industry crashed, lost nearly 500K of my personal money and all savings. I am use to work, it kills me to be idle, that is why I enjoy working on the truck, it is in garage near den so that I can check on her often.
