toodle-oo, teacher-land!

Today was my last day as a preschool teacher! The kids and parents were sad to see me go, and I was bummed to leave them, but I'm excited to start my new job tomorrow!

I am having a celebratory dinner of crackers and guacamole, diced mango, and almonds. (Weird, I realize, but very tasty.) Oh, and a cup of rooibos tea -- I got a big box of tea as a gift from one of the families! People are so generous there.

Speaking of generous, one of my coworkers, Don, gave me a hand blender as a goodbye gift! Wow. I'm excited to start using it -- I've had a "boat motor" on my list of stuff to buy for ages!

Other than that, it was a pretty uneventful day. Some of the parents planned a little ice cream goodbye party for me this afternoon, which was very nice!

Since I don't have to be at my new job until 10 a.m. most days, I have big plans for that time -- big plans, baby! I am going to continue getting up at 7:00, do an hour of yoga, sit and actually enjoy my breakfast, pack my lunch and do other things to prepare for the day, and get little things done here and there. Doesn't this sound fabulous?

Awesome day Catherine! I am leaving my job (last day is a week from tomorrow) and it is bittersweet for me. I love having the window of opportunity open though. Your new job time is great and it's exactly what I do. I go to work at either 8 or 10 and I always get up much earlier than I have to be there so I can enjoy my morning, not rush and have part of a day (to myself) before the actual day starts. I look forward to what you are up to, how the new job is, and what you are going to be making with your new blender.

The Wild Berry Tofutti Cuties are great! I'd like to try the chocolate or peanut butter though. For the cauliflower I was thinking just snacking on it raw but then again you never know.

it DOES sound fabulous. Congratulations, Catherine! It is so exciting (I think) to embark on a new adventure. Kudos to you on taking charge of your dreams.
