Midwinter Break

It's 7:30 AM on Saturday and I am wide awake. My body is still on school time, so it is hard to sleep more than an hour past my normal 6:00 AM wakeup call.

As I left the school building yesterday I heard people excitedly talking about their vacation plans--Bahamas, California, Florida, etc.

My plans are different. I will be writing about how Principal P. destroyed my career as a teacher and jump started my career as a writer. I will try to do other things, like taking walks and spending quality time with friends and family, but I will spend the early morning hours of every day writing.

So begins my dress rehearsal for retirement--and the dress code is...pajamas.
