Mondays

Mondays are the best as a retiree. I like Sunday nights too because there is no stress about the upcoming work week.

Don't get involved with finding another teacher to do it. That is the principal's job.

Coffeemaker

I absolutely love my Oxo coffeemaker. My model doesn't have all those features, but there are Oxos that do. It makes the best coffee of any home machine that I've had.

Early Morning Workouts

I'm retired but, when I was teaching, I went to a 6:15 am class at Orangetheory Fitness a few times a week. I was way too tired to go to the gym after school.

Now I attend 9:30 am classes.

Ugh

That's hard, and I'm sorry you have to deal with all that.

I get it. I'm retired and don't miss working with toxic, difficult teachers.

It was nice of you to devote all that time to those parents. I would have engaged with them for 5-10 minutes and then referred them to the counselor.
