After 42 years of teaching, today was my last official day. The last week has been bitter-sweet. I still love teaching, but things happen and I know this was the right decision at the right time for me. I'm looking forward to the first sub-zero day with cutting winds, driving snow and slick roads when school is in session. I'll just turn over in bed and snuggle next to LOML. I'm looking forward to spending time with friends and family, working on the house, building the furniture LOML has wanted and traveling. I will continue my work with MS and HS sports, and take a more active part in my church. It seems like I have about 36 hours of activities planned for tomorrow. My retired friends tell me every day is like this. I'm going to love it.
