Lots of changes have been taking place in my life in the last month or two. First, after over 30 years of working full-time, I have made the transition to working part-time. It took quite a bit of soul-searching to come to this decision. I had such a great job and enjoyed the people I worked with so much. But I love doing so many other things too. My knitting, sewing, cooking, trips to the lake with my family, and reading. I wanted more time to do those things, so early in May I left my job and started working part-time as a software developer at a company I worked for several years ago.
And I am loving it! 🙂
Another really great change that has happened in the last month, is that both of my kids have been offered great jobs here in Findlay. My son will be moving back to the area in the next few weeks, and my daughter will be teaching 1st grade, starting in the Fall, in one of our city’s elementary schools! It will be so great to have them both here in town! I am one happy mom!
Of course this transition to part-time work took some adjustment! The first few weeks, on my days off work, I rushed around trying to accomplish so much. I felt I needed to justify my time that I wasn’t working, by cleaning, knitting, or sewing. Just to prove, at the end of the day, that I had done the right thing. I think I have settled down a bit, now, but I still don’t like to waste my time off. 🙂
Sooooo… I have just finished Edward the Elephant! Isn’t this sweater so cute? I loved the patterns knit into it! But given that it is July, it just seemed way too HOT for Edward to wear this right now!So I knitted him a little TANK TOP 🙂 So now he looks like he is ready for a day out on the lake! I know a couple of dogs that are sure ready to spend some time out on the lake too! I hope everyone enjoys their holiday weekend!
