Celebrating Retirement One Piece At A Time.

Retirement.  Today, I celebrated the First Day Of School with a few of my retired colleagues.  We celebrated a new school year that we will not be teaching and we've passed the proverbial torch on to new staff with well wishes and hope.   We all have over 25 years into the school system, had successful careers and miss teaching but we are rejoicing the fact that we didn't have to go to the countless meetings that teachers endure at the start of the year. 
  
Let me start by saying that I'm retired and loving it but very possibly I'm failing retirement.  Sure, I work seven days a week at this business but it's isn't work for me, it's fun.  Teaching High School called me and I was blessed to have taught some of the most amazing students in history for over 20 years (not going to tell you exactly how many but it was a lot.)  Teaching is fun, frustrating, brings out the best and worst in a person, is passionate, the ups and downs are incredible, yet I learned something new on a daily basis.  Actually, my Puzzle Princess Tricia and her helper husband Pete are both former students, yet 6 years separated them! 

While I miss teaching, I certainly love sleeping just a bit longer in the morning!  Puzzles are my passion and puzzling is always fun.  When I saw this order today I realized what a gift retirement is and how it's a new beginning in life. 

The puzzle photo is of a future retiree who worked at Johns Hopkins for over 25 years and her department wanted to give a beautiful gift of memories.  Each person will sign the back of a piece and will write a memory on the back.  It's the PERFECT retirement gift...  Happy Retirement!
