Delaware Beach Towns

Rehoboth is a nice town but traffic has increased in recent years. Parking at the beach is expensive and limited.

Bethany is a quieter area with lovely beaches.

My school system requires 30 day notice of mid year retirements. I gave 60 days notice. I, too, had a nasty, vindictive principal. She...

That is completely inappropriate and awful. She sounds like a self absorbed, insensitive individual. I would take a giant step back from her. Just because she is family doesn't mean you have to have...

Sunday Evenings

I just got home from dinner out with my husband. We are both retired and had a relaxed evening. No more thinking about the upcoming week and getting stressed out on Sundays. Retirement is glorious.
