NO, I AM NOT QUITTING...as yet, but I've been teaching now for 22 years and I've often thought about (especially on really tough days) what else I would do if I did quit.
My first thought was to own a bed and breakfast.
ROSEMARY HOUSE. The grounds are so lush. Sitting on this porch enjoying a lemonade and reading a good book...ahhhh.
I love the porch on the SUGARBUSH BED AND BREAKFAST too. It would be so enjoyable to relax with my morning coffee here.
It would be fun to have guests appreciate a stay in a room like this, at the J. PATRICK HOUSE.
Then I realized that the grounds, porch and rooms didn't get this lovely without a lot of hard work. So I'd need a great grounds keeper, maid and cook too so that I could just manage the place.
My other idea was to own a bookstore.
I'd need a great location and plenty of money so that I wouldn't have to worry about the bigger bookstores running me out of business. I miss these kinds of places.
It's fun to dream.
What would you do if you could quit your day job?
