I'm curious how many hours of work you do in a week?

Semi-retired and working from home.
Between 2 & 25 hr a week.

About 20-25hrs but then again I'm also semi-retired and don't want any more.

Before I retired, I was working 7 days a week/10 hours a day. That was only because I loved what I was doing, so I guess that I was not really working at all.
I miss my "job".

Hell, I can't make it a full day, but I can make it every day.
