Listening.... to my Zen Tranquility cd.
Loving... my job.
Thinking... I need to clean this mess.
Wanting... a lot of upgrades for my home.
Needing... best friend time.
2 truths and a fib.... My youngest child is younger than my grandson. I always knew I wanted to be a teacher. I have been raising children for 25 years already and I am not close to being done.
So I realized that I had to write this a bit like I filled it in for it to work right. Now on the explanations.
Listening.... I've been listening to the Saturday morning sounds at our house.... one child watching Pound Puppies, the sound of sugar-cereal being eaten and bowls being refilled, and so on. But it was time to turn the TV off, so it got really quiet. I put in my Zen Tranquility cd and it is playing now.
Loving my job. Yeah, I didn't foresee loving this job as much as I do. You should have heard me whine about the adjustment at the beginning of the year (and yet, lucky you, you missed that part). Then I got okay with it and now I am really enjoying it. Not just my particular job, but my school. I knew I would enjoy the atmosphere at Lincoln, it is where I student taught. But I don't know if I knew how much I would like it. I can't wait to students and colleagues alike. It really makes going to work a pleasant thing and builds my passion.
Thinking... this house is begging to be cleaned. I love it when it is clean. I love an organized space. I think I should get right on this! Then I'll get to work on some fun projects for my home as well! I say... Hooray!
Wanting a lot of upgrades. Every year since I have lived here I have said I am going to buy a bigger fridge with my tax return. I has not happened yet. And I sold my chest style deep freeze and I don't know that I should have. I also want to do some serious work on my basement! Finish another bedroom and get all the walls up for the other rooms. Yeah, my wanter is on full blast. But honestly, I need to take of some debts. Hmmph.
Needing. This is always tricky for me. There is the... "I still need a job" need (which I figure EVERYONE is sick of hearing about.... including myself). And then there is the need to figure out how we will make ends meet with even less money when my income drops by $420/month in July. That's my house payment right there!! Yikes! Then there is the reality check of it all. What do I actually need? I live in the richest country in the world with so much excess it is ridiculous. If I have clothes, food, and a warm bed, what do I really need? But my soul needs some best friend time. I am hoping to seek out my best friend in the whole world and maybe can talk. Or maybe we can not talk. Either one will be good for my heart and soul.
My youngest child is younger than my grandson. Yep. He just turned 10 and she will turn 10 in July.
|My little Punky and I had a Mom/daughter night a couple weeks ago. It was fun!|
|This is my grandson, taken this past fall (2013). He is really growing up!|
|I can't help but think I looked pretty fabulous for my "advanced maternal age" and now you know why I call my daughter Punky, isn't she just an adorable little Punkin-seed?|
