Making Time for Mischief - ie. Retirement


1. a : an act of retiring : the state of being retired
b : withdrawal from one's position or occupation or
 from active working life
c : the age at which one normally retires 
2
: a place of seclusion or privacy

One week from today I will end my career as a 
public school teacher. I'll be able to do all the things
 I never have time for - in fact I already have a long 
list going! My top ten things include finding an
 agility or other training class for Toby and moving 
our therapy dog gig to daytime. And no question,
 I'm looking forward to taking a morning walk on 
the spring days that are just about here!

Toby, what are you going to think when I'm no 
longer gone for 9 hours a day?

"Well, since you asked...

You could start a new career as a doorman,
and you could be my own personal playtime companion - 

or maybe you could join me outside if it's sunny-

-exactly like this...

and we can visit the hospital more often-


 and maybe even let kids read to me at the library!

Hmm, yes that does sound nice...

Let's go!"
Yes, I'm ready to start the next
 adventure!
And I'll be able to post to this blog
 more regularly again...

    1. Sam I've been hearing that from a lot of people in the last few weeks. It's a shame the boys can't come to work with you. People in workplaces that let them bring their dogs are sure the lucky ones!
