I've been doing nothing for a long time - mostly sitting, watching TV and knitting. Retirement may not be good for me. I thought I would use the time to get healthy. It just dawned on me that I am not! I just found out about an opening at the school I worked at and dearly love. So I decided to give it a try for the rest of the year.
I've been trying to fool myself into thinking that my diet and fitness routine would just all come together as I sit, knitting away on various projects. I have accomplished a lot of knitting, but at what cost (my big butt).
I found out about the loss of a program for students needing extra help that had to be discontinued because the teacher was no longer able to continue with the program. I already love these kids and volunteer when I can. I must admit that I could have been helping them all along, if I did not have this unhealthy knitting compulsion.
I know what I'm getting into - and part of it is not fun(redundant paperwork) - but the students deserve all the help they can get. Who knows - I might even sign up for next year....
