I typically take the month of July off to vacation and not be on a schedule. Then August 1 rolls around and my head is gearing up for the beginning of the school year.
Not.This.Year.Retired. I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that it feels weird. I’ve had schoolmares. I am going to a rally tonight in support of my former colleagues as the bargain for what is right. I’ll wear #redfored.
This was a gift from my husband for graduating/retiring. (I found it and he ordered it. It came from HERE). It’s my OLW. And it’s so fitting. I’ve been seeking my place in the world this summer. Next week, I head to the coast to spend three days at a writing workshop. Then on August 27th, hubs and I head out on a two week road trip to Utah and Arizona with friend stops on the way.
Everyone I talked to said that being away the first weeks of school is important. I’m looking forward to what comes next.
