Time Keeps on Slipping...


The children have been out of school now for almost a month and soon to return. We didn't travel anywhere, so the holidays were a bit tedious. Granted, I am no longer a Christian, but I do miss the Christmas holiday traditions and accoutrements. Just goes to show how indelible family traditions can be. I can almost smell the Russian Tea, Moravian Love Feast buns, and sweet pine.

Along with all of the maid drama(I won't get into that), I am contemplating going back to work in the fall. I say contemplating because my son will only be 2 and a half, and I have never left a child of mine at that age. With all of the global economic discord though, I am thinking that a profession right now might be handy. The key would be to find one that had some flexibility though....
I have talked to several colleges and universities and there are some promising prospects of teaching; I just know me and how much of me teaching takes away. It is a most rewarding job, but it is an all-encompassing one for me. Maybe I should have stuck with psychology.

Anyway, I had had hopes of getting back into painting, but space and time constraints have dampening my inspiration and motivation.
Ahhh...if only we had snowy or even rainy days to go with my mood right now....
