August 22nd





No no don't check your calendars - today is not the 22nd - yesterday was.  And it was my first day back at school.  The kids don't start till next Wednesday - but ya know I have paper work - and files - and programs - and a multitude of stuff to do before the 29th.

Usually by mid August I am chomping at the bit to go back.............. on Tuesday night I was dreading the thought of starting back.  WTF?? definitely time for me to retire.

Anyway I went in - got the socially accepted and expected hellos how was your summer over with - tried to book a meeting time with my principal - like that is ever an easy job (le sigh) will try again today.  Broke out the files and turned on the computer and just settled down to entry data and all the good stuff that pays my salary.

Every once in a while I would think to myself  "next year I will try doing A B or C this way" then I would smack myself upside the head and say to myself " this is the last time I have to do this" and I would smile a little and feel like I could actually do this.

After the required 7 hours of dull dull work - I shut down the computer, stacked the files, shut the window, turned off the lights and came home.

One day down  199 to go ...................

As I told swan...after retirement, I used to get melancholy around this time of year. School was starting and I wasn't going. Took about 2 years, now I thank my lucky stars that I have time to play, travel, and more play. You will love retirement, morningstar.

PS: friend sent me this website for a super model train village. Thought W might enjoy watching it.
