16 weeks and 3 days~

I put the above title because in this time, when it has come to an end, I am retiring from the school district. It seems like a long way off and like I told my sister really too early to count, but…..I thought it might be worth mentioning. Ideally I would like to never work…

Bill Paxton~

  I was saddened to hear of Bill Paxton’s passing. No he wasn’t a favorite actor but I think he was a decent one. It is funny because the day he died I was surfing the channels and he came on to promote his newest TV series. And then I found out later he died….

A Warm And Rainy Day~

It is fifty some degrees out and raining. It is supposed to get to 65 today. I have tulips coming up in my yard which I hate as it is way too early. Tomorrow is the first of March and we could have a lot of freezing cold and snowy weather. Sigh.  

Love my Monday’s when…..

I love Monday’s when I have the day off. 🙂 Love having days off period. Going to clean a bit and then go for a walk when it warms up.  

Not going to cut it

I have had five hours of sleep due to grandchildren not settling down to go to sleep till almost eleven thirty. I have been awake since five. Ugh. I will definitely need a nap later when everyone goes home. Sigh. Getting too old to only have a little bit of sleep

Brian~

Friday’s How I love Thee~

Yippee! It is finally Friday! No the week hasn’t really been long, they rarely are anymore, but I  am extra thrilled it is Friday today because I am taking a vacation day on Monday so that means I get a three day weekend. I so LOVE my Friday’s. Brian is turning 36 tomorrow       But…

Should I do it?

Okay I am still talking to my Human Resources about retiring. I would get a one time payment of a bit over $28,000 I could pay off quite a few bills and only have my car payment and a bank loan left to pay on. I would work but of course I wouldn’t be making…

Nope~

Well after looking over my finances I should just stay here and work four to eight more years. I just can’t see giving up nearly $20 an hour to work and probably work harder to make ends meet. One thing I know about myself is I don’t want to be scrapping by. I want there…

Early Retirement?

So we have been offered to retire if we want to. I would get 70% of my income which would be about $800 less a month. But if I worked a part time job some where or even full time I could make that money up. I am on the fence. A HUGE part of…
