Yesterday morning, Hubs woke up and announced he was going to call his former company and ask for a paycheck because he had been working at a trade show all night. LOL! He was kidding of course, but it was clearly a dream he would rather not have. I have done the same. I find myself back in the classroom, in front of a strange bunch of kids, and I ask someone, "I'm here just to fill in, right?" And they tell me that this is my classroom for the whole year. I am in a panic. How can this be? I have no plans, no idea what grade it is, no nothing! When I wake up it usually takes a minute to come to my senses, but the relief when I realize it's a dream is palpable. We have been retired two years now, so I'm guessing these dreams will become less common. but still, it's not cool. It's not that we hated our jobs, but we were both ready to retire.
