Day 231 – LSS Attitude of Gratitude – Blog/A good tired – There is always something to be grateful for.

Not much sleep last night. Yesterday I had a great conversation with one friend. Then I stayed up late to catch up with another good friend. I had difficulty winding down and sleep did not come easy.  When I woke this morning I was still so very tired. But I was happy in the knowledge that I have only three more mornings to go to work.

I will miss the students, the nice co-workers, the lessons, and the aha moments. I think I will actually miss having a place to go to in the wee hours of the morning. Maybe not. I can feel the shift in priorities in my body. I have always been an early riser. If I wake too early I read, clean, or prep lessons. No more of the latter. If I am tired in the future I shall just hang out until I feel like getting up.   Or I will get up, do something, and then go back to bed.  Hmmmm   

I am tired of correcting papers all hours of the day and night. I look forward to being tired because I stayed up late enjoying a good book. I am tired of wondering what I will need to get done before the morning. I look forward to being tired from working in my gardens. My body is changing and readying itself for a new way to live. I want to have more days of tired on my terms and maybe some days without tired at all.  One can hope.   

I am exhausted from cleaning out my classroom. I have been purging, donating, gifting, and bringing home things. My garage looks like a tornado hit it. I guess I already have a school chore to do once I am retired. It is OK I actually like sorting and organizing.  I am giving my daughter, also a teacher, items for her classroom. I am sending many books to cousins who have little ones visiting them often. I am gifting many things to my students. They are enjoying the treats.   

After school I managed to get two very important tasks accomplished. I am grateful that my little ducks are lining up so nicely. It meant I missed the SARK call which is a little disappointing. I shall watch the replay. I am so very grateful for yet another wonderful woman in my life.

It was a good day. Much was accomplished. I am tired. It is a good tired.

  1. I entered retirement with no demands on myself. I lazed for a bit and just enjoyed going wherever the breeze took me. Then I did hobbies and projects and road trips and now I just lead my life, day by day, enjoying every moment. You will make a great retiree…
