Loving the no holiday thing!

Ok ok granted I live in a country where such holidays are not celebrated but my week has been amazing! Why you ask?

- No holiday decorating a classroom!

- No having to put on an holiday play

- No trying to put together a holiday class party

- No dealing with family/friends/co-workers conversations at a dinner table

- No dealing with mass crowds for shopping as I have time to shop for friends on my own time

- No counting days until winter break!

Feel free to add to my "No" list!

The No Holiday Likes Because I Am Retired:

Also no holiday party, craft, or decorating classroom!

Also, no counting days until winter break.

No end of semester testing, grading, data collection, and report cards.

No gifts coming in from students. I appreciated them but I try to live without collecting a bunch more stuff.



The Holiday Likes Because I Am Retired:

Christmas shopping (the little I do) during the weekdays when most people are working and kids are in school.

Having more time to decorate my house, listen to holiday music, and enjoy the peacefulness of the season.

Time to bake (not after work or over busy weekends) and do my cookie giveaway to friends.

I feel like I am just as busy retired! How did I ever get anything done while I was teaching??? At least now, I only answer to myself, and:

No stress or deadlines imposed by those above me!

No clean up on last day before break!

No last minute baking or decorating!

But, I am always doing last minute shopping - I'll never change!
