Finally! After many years in the classroom, yesterday was my final day. I have waited so long to use the "R" word. I know I kept it secret, for I did not want to jinx it. 
It will be so nice lounging in the morning, watching GMA, and marathons of Law & Order. Trips to the beach and traveling is how I plan to spend lots of time.
Do not get me wrong. I love the classroom, and I have influenced the young lives of many, but retirement sounds great to me. It's ME time.

April Fool's, y'all! (back to work Monday)


  1. LOL!! I said it was a joke as soon as I read it!!! Good one!!!

  2. Oh, you had me so excited for you, Ron! I totally believed it! The students are lucky that you are going to continue in the classroom for the immediate future, but I'm here to tell you that the life of retirement is pretty awesome. I hope you get to join the "Retired Teachers" club soon. ;-)

  3. You got me Ron!! I kept saying "Wow, how did he keep this such as secret. I had no idea he was old enough to retire yet.

  4. Good morning, Ron! You didn't fool me at all! I knew right away when I saw that post that you were trying to fool your readers! ;) I do hope, though, that you join the "Retirement Club" sooner than later! Cheers! xoxo

  5. This is the best April Fool's Day prank! You really had me going...

  6. Oh man, I was really getting excited for you. Maybe the R word is not too far off.

  7. I fell for it. But, it's nice to dream, right?

    Believe me, I didn't teach long, and even though I wanted to stay home with my children, I still cried that first morning I heard the school busses pass my house and I knew I wouldn't be in the classroom. The scent of crayons still makes me teary-eyed! Once you do retire, you'll always miss it. (but it's so nice to be able to go to the bathroom whenever you want!).

  8. You had me going there until I realized I read this post a day late. Haha

  9. I was hoping it was true! :)
