It has "officially" been three months since I retired from teaching. At first it just seemed like "summer vacation" so I didn't feel any different. My school has been back in session for 3-1/2 weeks, so now I'm experiencing what it's really like being retired. The best part so far is that I get to sleep in . . . for as long as I want. And lately, I've wanted to sleep in a long time.
Now I'm trying to figure out what I want to do with the rest of my life. I am looking into a few things, taking a few classes, and enjoying having the option to explore. I know I am very lucky to have this luxury. So let the "new" journey begin . . .
