I got offered different position with more hours at the college tonight.  The chairperson said she wanted me because I AM GREAT!!!!  Great is a term I never heard in reference to me when I taught high school.  In my former AP's eyes the only great thing I did was leave.

I am not accepting the job.  I like sleeping late and being able to play.  But, it feels good to be wanted.

Congrats on the job offer, but congrats on knowing that retirement is so much better and well deserved.

You put your blood and sweat in for little pay and very little respect. And while this new job offers respect, you been there and done that.

Retirement is a new direction. Travel, sleep and explore. These years will go fast, so enjoy!!!
