Getting Ready for a New Adventure

Sunday, June 19, 2011

Here I am at 61, (62 next week) and starting on a new adventure. After 34 years at the same school these are my last few days there. Starting July 1st I will be working at a new school site. It's exciting and scary at the same time.

Exciting, because I will get to see how things are done at a different site, and happy I won't have to put up with the principal I currently a have. She is a liar, a manipulator and very egotistical. The last few months have been horrible, you are afraid to say anything to anyone as she has rangled a few staff who tell her every little thing.

Scary, because I will be only working for 5 hours a day and not full time which means I will need to find another source of income to make ends meet. Also, since I rely on public transportation and the school is an early start I will be getting up at 4 a.m. to be out of the house by 5:40. Obviously I won't be working out in the morning.

Sad,because I love the teachers, parents and students at the school. I knew many of the parents when they came to school there. It is sad to know that all my hard work building a "Family community" at the school will go down the drain. They are very upset that the principal eliminated my position.

As part of my new adventure I decided to become team leader for the "Fabulous & Fit 60+ Sparkers" team (formerly Sher's Room 60+) I am hoping this will help me get back on track and again start being accountable for my health and fitness.

Wish me luck everyone! Change is NOT my favorite thing!
