Kris is taking early retirement. This only means she's looking for new work, but it'll be part time. When you're a teacher that means you teach half the day and do your prep work the other half - full time means you teach all day and do prep work half the night. So you don't get much sleep, or time for leisure activities, except on weekends or vacations. So we can work on music a little more effectively.
