I did it! I'm almost free! 39 school days until I am officially retired after 31 years! I signed the papers yesterday. It's such a huge weight off my shoulders. I get a decent pension, supposedly for the rest of my life but dependent on the state of Texas, of course. And I still have my part-time job, and I enjoy it. There are so many things to look forward to. A daughter having a baby, my son (hopefully) graduating from college, another daughter probably getting engaged soon. And CRAFTS! All the crafts!
It's a great week in sports, too! Our Houston Astros are going to the World Series for the 3rd time starting today! And our Rockets season starts Thursday. Go 'Stros! Go Rockets!
I think I am going to take up sewing again. The only sewing I've done since high school is hand sewing, but I think I remember the basics. I'll need a machine, and I want to stick to something basic. I don't need 100 different stitches, embroidery, or a serger. Any recommendations on an inexpensive, basic, yet sturdy machine? Singer or Brother?
Have a great week!
