I love how you all are loving retirement!

I had a Good Samaritan too

Today I was at Walmart unloading my sacks into my vehicle. I was parked right next to the cart pick up and a young man was collecting all the carts. I had my keys in my hand so I gave him my cart...

I plan on retiring at the end of the 2013-14 school year. I know I only have one year left but I feel overwhelmed. There are so many changes coming this series, new evaluation system,...
