If you know me on Facebook, you've probably already seen this strawberry cake with strawberry filling from the retirement party my family threw for me this past weekend.
These cakes are from the retirement festivities my colleagues had for me the last day of school. The 29 on the little cake is not *ahem* my age anymore, but the number of years I've taught.
I have worked continuously since I was 16 years old, so this is new, exciting territory for me. Other than doing two-a-days at the gym to work off the cake and doing some painting and wallpapering in the house, I am footloose and fancy free for the next few months. I imagine by then I will be wanting to find at least a part time job. I've had more unsolicited offers than I can count, but I will wait and see what seems right.
My question for you, my friends, is this: what is your best advice to me for my retirement years? I want to hear it: new, old, sage, silly, pragmatic, fantastical, inane, or even insane. Please share!
