Well, the time has come for me to quit work at the old age of 29. I was originally going to go part time but the whole idea is not not be around germs so that would not help. I have to tell my principal this on Thursday and I am afraid I will wimp out. I know it is for the best but this is extremely hard for me. My whole life was teaching (which is also a big reason for leaving). I can't expect anyone to make me feel better about the decision because I won't, but I do have one big question. What do I do with all the time?!?! I do not want to volunteer with kids the first year, it is just too hard. I can't actually do a lot of volunteer activities because of my health. So I need other specific ideas. Here is what I have: Exercising, spending time with new nephew, actually talking and seeing my friends, hanging out with family, learning to cook. Now I need many other suggestions. Please help me get somewhat excited for this big change!
