Another part of the job that I loved was always learning about the natural resources and applying the learning to make connections with teaching.

I'm basically keeping the same sleep schedule. I have a cup of coffee, exercise and walk the dog. Then I try to fill in the blanks. Today I started folding my work uniforms that take up a large part of my closet. I'm not going o miss wearing those!
