You've got another

of Angelo's parents.

You will have an adventure becoming a new self. It may be a bit strange at first, but you’ll master the process.
We like retirement very much.

just wondering

if your sister and mom can FaceTime or Zoom with you (since you've got the skills now). Expect you are likely doing something of the sort, but thought I'd mention it. Certainly not as good as "in...

No budget

We pay off the credit card monthly so that gives us a general idea of day to day stuff--we like the kickback from the card and incur no interest. Mostly bills are paid automatically and we check the...

I'm of two minds. Between sue her for slander (verbal) and/or liable (written) defamation or walk away happy you don't have to deal with that teacher and principal anymore.

It takes awhile to really feel retired. I still look at school supplies on sale in August.:)

I hadn't thought about not bringing things into classrooms, but that could happen. The virus can last up to a week on fabric and people do cough and sneeze around teacher's bags and belongings.

I'd add

a couple of pair of latex gloves (student's nose bleeds), small bottle of headache remedy (for you only), small hand sanitizer (if you can find), small tube of hand lotion.

I also had a small case...

drove past Hobby Lobby

I'd love to go to some of the stores, just to walk around, look, touch, maybe buy a few things. But I...

I'm confused

More and more at least for some districts and states it looks like there will be little opportunities for substitute work at least in the fall. Why aren't substitutes seeking other employment?

I usually

find notebooks at the dollar store and get pencils from there or an office supply store that are reasonable. I write a note to the kids about keeping a journal about what they do over the summer.

The kid is a genius...and so is his teacher. He's had to learn a ton of English to enhance his reading and writing along with math skills.

Cuomo was inundated

with angry parent communications after his statement and has been backtracking. Gates is not very popular in New York. There are predictions of more opt-out (of standardized testing) movements.
