The Countdown Begins
February 5, 2011

The weather man gave me the respite I begged for in the form of 3 consecutive snow days. Our work week consisted of Monday and a two-hour delayed Friday. My winter cold landed me in bed for most of my break. I even cancelled a work-out and a haircut–that’s huge! I determined to go with it and not whine about having to “waste” my gifted days being sick.

This morning the heavy snowflakes are falling fast. It’s beautiful, I feel close to human again, and I don’t really have to do a single thing. What a luxury!
I purchased my plane tickets for Greece. Countdown: 112 days. That sounds like forever, but experience tells me it will fly by. I will finish my teaching year and fly out the very next day . . . unless we have more snow days, that is. Will cross that bridge when we come to it. No worries. I have a personal day saved in my back pocket just in case, and they may have to finish that last day without me.
Speaking of snow days, did you see the dweeb from the Governor’s office on the evening news proclaiming that no snow days would be excused because all kids “need 180 days of school–even more!” What an ass head! Lighten up, Dweeb! I don’t get it. Why use good energy monitoring to ensure that others’ don’t accidentally receive an extra day off when you could busy yourself planning a vacation of your own? As for me, I look forward to my next few excursions–President’s Day weekend in NY, Spring Break at the beach, and then my Greek Odyssey.
Life is what happens when you’re on vacation!

The Universe is guiding me on an incredible adventure: my Plan B. I write here to share bits of my Odyssey, hopefully to inspire, encourage, or extend the virtual hand of friendship.

When I quit teaching in 2014, I could never have imagined the growth I would experience through travel, writing, reading, therapy, and introspection.

I believe human connection and compassion will go a long way toward our healing, and the best way to connect and feel compassion for one another is through the sharing of our stories.

Thank you for joining me here. I appreciate you and may we grow together.
