Choosing to work

If you got a chance to be a homemaker and do whatever you want until your kids get home from school (sleep in/read/watch tv/surf the web/etc) would you take it? For example, your spouse got a huge promotion and money is not an issue at all, but you just got laid off so you don't have a job. You have a good degree/experience so if you get divorced or something happens, you won't have a problem finding a job fairly quickly. Would you go stir crazy or feel guilty for not working or would you just enjoy your life?

My boyfriend's ex has hassled him a fair bit, despite him blocking her on every platform possible.

Today she's tried to add me on facebook.

Two questions, first, why did she do that? She hasn't sent a message or anything.

Second, what should I do about it? Non-srs answers welcome, of course I am just going to ignore it and anything she says.

I saw this Time cover in a stack of old magazines.

I'm about to turn 50, so my life is more than half over. But if I were going to live to be 142, it would only be a bit more than 1/3 finished (assuming no accidents).

What would you change or do differently now if you learned suddenly that your life would likely last another ~50 years past what you'd originally expected?
