Enjoying my time

Well, I'm enjoying my time at home. It's nice to be able to get things done throughout the week and not having to leave everything till the weekend. I do have a "job". I am watching our neighbor's baby. Our neighbor is a teacher and she just started back to work this week after her maternity leave. So this was my first week with her little one. It's been enjoyable taking care of such a little one. Marisa won't be that little when we bring her home, but it does give me the chance to get used to having a little one around.

I'm not really missing teaching. The only thing I miss are my students. Some of them I'd been with since Kindergarten or First grade so it was hard to leave them behind. But it is also a good lesson in adapting to change and being flexible. Life is always bringing changes and we all need to learn to adapt and run with the changes and make the best out of them. I do enjoy being home and not feeling the stress that I felt with teaching.

A new year has begun.....

Well, here we are beginning a new year. Making resolutions to do things differently. Hoping this is the year we will bring our daughter home. The year seems to go by quickly but not when I think of my little girl. I don't want to wish time away but I do want time to pass quickly till she is at home with us. But I know time will not stand still when we have her at home, it will pass by way too quickly and we'll wonder where the time has gone. I look forward to the new year and what it will bring. Hopefully it will bring many wonderful things for many people. Happy New Year to all!!
