Lately, my life has been full of ups and downs. Not having a full-time job is starting to worry me, and I’m finding I’m becoming more and more frustrated at every turn. I haven’t been without a full-time job since I was a stay-at-home mom when my six year old was born. And even then, I was attending college full-time. I’ve been getting discouraged, but I have a wonderful support system in place to help me and cheer me up when I am feeling down. I know everything happens for a reason. I’m just trying to figure all of this out.
In the meantime, I’ve been staying busy with the blog, which has grown so much thanks to many of you. With the kids out of school, we’ve been spending a lot of time doing activities like library trips, parks, and other free or low cost options.
I’m looking forward to traveling to D.C. in two weeks for the Blogging While Brown conference, and I also would like to make it to Florida and Texas before the kids go back to school.
I’ve been doing a lot of self evaluation and reflection during my employment hiatus. I’m trying to use this time off doing positive things: self improvement, quality time with the family, improving my blog, etc.
Something has to give.
