I could have written your post. What I keep reminding myself is that these are the latter years of my life. How do I want to spend them? Having a good time, or worrying about paperwork, attending stupid staff meetings that are often meaningless, and getting up at 5:30? I know that teaching is great. It provides you with a family. They are often your friends. Your life changes, but in a good way. Think of the things you can do now that you couldn't when you were teaching. I think of going to Dollywood in mid-November. I went on a cruise in late September. We drive to the mountains to enjoy the fall foliage or head for the beach at a moment's notice. After I left teaching, I decided that I would be "lean and mean." I eat healthier, go on two-mile walks after breakfast with my husband and lift weights. My weight has returned to the same weight that I was when I was in college.
