Countdown Begins 5 Days*****

Thursday, December 27, 2012

The 31st of December is Day One of my 100 day countdown to RETIREMENT! Mind you, I'm only counting actual school days. I'll be saying god bye to the full-time teaching. I'll still keep my job teaching at the Community College for a couple of classes.

I like 'starting lines':
Beginning on Day One I will find ways to apply Ben Franklin's "13 Virtues" as I head toward a new lifestyle.
Along the way I'll mix in Candice Kumai's "10 Small Changes"

Instead of seeking a higher power, I'll first wake-up that power that's been within me all along. (last time I saw that 'higher' one it was in a corner knoshing on kielbasa and drinking my Chianti!)

I'll also need to realize that I'll now have Time to practice Patience, with others and especially with myself.

    I think I fill a tinge of jealously. Much joy to you in your well earned retirement.

    Then you can say no more pencils, no more books, no more students dirty looks. emoticon Our professor retired in college and was back in 5 weeks. The new teacher got sick.
