    I have been willing, if not ready, to leave New York and move to the apartment, ever since we first visited there. Elaine, not so much.

    She has come to enjoy it there more and more, over time. I have been waiting patiently for her to be ready, too. She surprised me this year by saying she'd be ready to make the move....IF we could get a larger apartment.

    We have put our name in for ones that have become available, but never got one....until now! The available apartments are awarded by seniority, based on how long you have been a tenant. We just got the vacant apartment two doors down from us in the same building we are already in. We won't even need a truck to move!

    This apartment is just over 100 square feet larger than where we have been. It has an additional room which is 8x13, and a larger screened porch (8x12 as opposed to 8x8).

    That doesn't sound like much extra room, but remember that the apartment we have now is only 600 square feet. We will gain just over 100 square feet of interior space, and 50% more porch space....

    Our plan is to visit in July for 10 days to complete our move from one apartment to the other. Then we will go down, as usual, from Christmas time until just after Easter.

    Then, in June of next year, after she finishes teaching for the school year, she will call it quits with her tutoring job. If I'm still working then, I'll quit my job at NAPA. Our plan is to then head back to Florida to spend the summer, to make sure this is what we want full-time BEFORE we sell our condo here. We both think we'll be just fine with Florida summers.

    If we find that to be the case, we'll come back here in the fall of 2019 to liquidate most of what we own, and sell the condo....

    I just dropped my first eve f-bomb in the classroom.

    I would say I'm way more patient than most, especially with the knuckleheads that don't want to be here, because I was one of those knuckleheads. I've talked to them twice in the last month that my classroom is still indeed a classroom and I have a standard of behavior that is met or you are no longer welcome in my class (I can kick a kid out at any time because of the funding structure and CTE category).

    Not my proudest moment, but five of them just came by at lunch to apologize.

    On a youth retreat. The guys were getting loud and rowdy. The second year holy man walks into their dorm and shouts, "Will you guys shut the (f-bomb) up!" Instant quiet. I walked back to the other chaperones who are all staring at me with their mouths hanging open, followed by quiet laughter.

    I just watched a YouTube of a beekeeper clearing a yellow jacket nest out from under someone's house. He kept saying, "I'm a beekeeper. What the hell am I doing here? I'm a BEEkeeper!"

    He said he had 150 stings by the time he was done (he was wearing a bee suit), was really sick for 24 hours, and that in the future he'd just stick to honeybees, because yellow jackets were a totally different thing.
