Things had been changing around here before I got my voice back.
My mother-in-law and Chai Tea are going to be moving in with us in May or June. Fly Boy (Chai Tea's fiance) left the ROTC program and may or may not be enlisting in the Reserves and... is planning on moving here as well. These will be pretty major changes.
An immediate change I didn't see coming is that I'm looking for a job. I've been doing the stay at home Mom gig for 22+ years. This should be interesting. We are feeling the effects of this current economy more and more. So far Mr. Macchiato has been able to juggle things and keep all our balls up in the air but... he doesn't know how much longer he can do it. We've been praying. I can't help but wonder if the return of my voice is an answer and a way for us to meet those needs now. If God can work through a doctor and allow a treatment to work that I've had many times before with no result... He can work through an employer to see past my lack of experience, consider my potential, and give me a chance.
You know... you really never do know what is around the corner for you. I wasted so much time here at home! I have all these projects that I've put off... the office closet, all our pictures, working on my book... Why is it that the more time I have the less I get done? I hate that about myself! I've taken steps over the last several months... a sort of flexing of my atrophied multi-tasking muscles... but, hadn't really gotten back into using them regularly. I suppose I need pressure to do that. Well, I'm feeling some pressure! And... you know what? I think I like it.
Some people are afraid of change. Not me. I think it is the Army Brat in me. I was so afraid that the rest of my life was going to be spent waiting around like I have been the last couple years...
As fellow blogger Chris likes to say... ONWARD!!!
