I can see the light!!!!!

I love Christmas holidays. And this year working full-time in December, I've looked forward to them even more.....and then I got sick. The flu. And then a cold. And then it turned into some nasty sinus/throat infection. And then, the flu again. Can you believe it? Sheesh.

So today - I played outside with my kids for the first time in nearly 2 weeks. It was about -5 outside - wonderful weather for Dec. 30th. I felt amazing. Residual back pain and headache but all in all....on the mend.

And I still love Christmas holidays.

Happy New Year everyone!

Yahoo!!!! A DT toot for me

I made the Clear Scraps Design Team!!! I'm so excited. I've really just started playing with this acrylic medium and it's really a fantastic look that I'm hoping to do a lot with. Check out their cool stuff here: Clear Scraps

So torn....

How can I be loving something so much and so anxious for it to end at the same time? I'm so torn inside. I adore my job at the school. I love it so much that (and I don't wanna say this too loud - LOL) I'd almost do it for free - as a volunteer. And yet this full-time month is exactly as "too much" as I thought it would be. I'm SO looking forward to going back to half-time in January.

The biggest surprises about being back in the workforce for me has been realizing that what I thought I'd love - I really do, and what I thought I'd be able to handle - is exactly how much I can handle. I think after being a SAHM for so long I'd begun to doubt whether I really knew who I was anymore, iykwim....but I think I still do know who I am, and what I want, and what I am capable of. And once again....after a month or two of adjustment....I'm finding myself exactly where I'm supposed to be. It's a freeing feeling.

I'm tired and busy, but very, very happy.

A new phase.

I'm working full time. I never thought I'd say that.
It's only temporary. And it's the best job in the world. But still - full time?? Who knew.
I'm an EA at my kids' school and I work with grade 1 kids (numeracy). It's academically very easy and the kids are so darn cute! Love 'em to pieces already. And I'm still in the grade 4 class I started in....which I adore.

Just a new phase of life I'm adjusting to.
That's all.
