Quarter Off policy…

on 6 September, 2007

the school has one of these and I’m going to use it.

I feel like everyone I know will be disapointed in me. Why isn’t the spellcheck working?

(I’m releaved…is that terrible…oh so horrible)

It’s hard work. I don’t know if I’ll go back. If my dh new business takes off then I might not. But, if it doesn’t keep him busy enough or if I can afford childcare then I will go back.

Now the real point is all the soul searching I’ve been doing over this. I love school. But, I don’t really want a job yet. I don’t want to hurry my education. I want to savor each and every class. If we had the money I would rather take one class a quarter. I want time for my children. I want to be coherent and not some Mommy Zombie. Heck I might like another child eventually. I’m not old yet =P

And, these leads to other realizations. I’m negative. I’m a naturally negative introvert living with a hugely positive extrovert. I’m so tired of the scowls. The ones that are carving wrinkles into my forward. I know I scowl. I’ve seen the pictures. Even my son with Asperger’s told me I scowl.

I really want to enjoy myself…but I have no idea how.

My husband would enjoy himself if he was Job. No really…I’m serious. He would believe God loves him no matter how hard life was.

    And, amen.

    You and I are a lot alike. When I’m around my home, I notice the deep forhead and between the eyes creases, and I have a perpetual scowl. Why, why, why?

    Amy we are so much alike. I miss you dearly. It’s not fair to be apart.
