On The Road To A Great 2015

Driving on an empty road to upcoming 20152015 is a big year with some huge milestones for me. In May I will celebrate 10 years as a cancer survivor and in November I’ll be a half a century old. My 40’s have not been at all what I had planned them to be. I’m fairly certain that if I didn’t have a reason to celebrate the 10 year surviversary things would have been much different. But nothing can be done about that so I’ll just go from here, making whatever changes I can to be who/what I want to be.

I started off my year by “retiring” from the preschool. June 5th will be my last day and while I know this was the right decision, it was a hard thing to do. I like my job and I adore my co-workers. But this job started out as a part time “something to do” a little over six years ago and it has morphed into a full time position for all intents and purposes. I am unable to do the things I need to do, the things I want to do and work with any type of proficiency. My job gets the vast majority of my efforts and everything else gets whatever is left.

Make no mistake. I fully understand just how fortunate I am to be able to make this decision and believe you me, I am very grateful! With all this new-found time I’ll have on my hands I will write books and clean my house and complete projects and cook more dinners and eat healthy and exercise and accompany Mr. Jenster on business trips and learn how to garden and go visit Katie at school on a whim and try yoga and volunteer more and go into Philly to meet Taylor for lunch and take more pictures and learn new things. I’ll have much more time to start making my somedays happen. Or maybe I’ll just read more. Who knows?

Mr. Jenster believes I’m leaving the working world so I can take care of him. I’m just going to let him believe that. It’s easier this way.

    Hope you can do all the things on your list when you “retire”! I had a list for when I retired from homeschooling. Michael graduated 14 yrs. ago and nothing has been accomplished on my list; hope you’re not like your older sister……

      That’s why I said maybe I’ll just read. I’m pretty sure I can do that. You should amend your list and say “read”, too! Then you will accomplish what you set out to do! 🙂
