a watched pot never boils

Or, I should say, a watched email account never delivers. (huh?)

I have been waiting for over a week now for a particular email. It is very frustrating. Part of me, though, is fine with this email not arriving. This email equals change. BIG change. for me, at least.

We have decided that it would be best for our family if I were to go to work. yikes. Yes, yes, I know that I teach preschool. It just isn't bringing in the income that we had planned on this year. So, in addition to teaching preschool I am going to be a substitute teacher.

I am definitely looking forward to the extra income, just not the work hours. Our nights are already so busy, I'm afraid that I won't be able to get everything done. No, this isn't a full time job. I will only be subbing at my kids' elementary school. I am hoping, though, to work 2 days per week. This will give me 2 days of preschool, 2 days of subbing and 1 day for errands and laundry.

Instead of feeling overwhelmed, I am trying to use this time before the email comes to get more organized. I've been going through drawers and closets. I've been compiling my list of crock pot meals. etc. etc.

I'm sure it will all be great. There is always a transition phase when starting something new. My family is very supportive and I have a loving Heavenly Father who continues to bless me. So, I am grateful.


  1. Good luck! I'm sure you'll find a way to make everything work. :-)
