Odd that I would even consider teaching in the public school again, but here I am , subbing for now. Looks like I can get my state certificate re-instated by the end of June, and if a position came open to teach art at one of the high schools, I could apply for it.
I like the new program, and the art teacher that took my place, and I am sure I could do a much better job this time, and not be so stressed. Robert is well now, his brain surgeries were successful, and his prognosis is good. So maybe it is time to go back to work while I wait for the economy to pick up. Sales are certainly down.
It is more than that, however, I want to accomplish something, do something important. I feel like I am just spinning my wheels and getting no where these days. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the stress free days of not having to get up early. I enjoy being free to paint en plein air, and I enjoy being able to go out of town or whatever, whenever.......
I have to be smart though, I am not earning much, not putting anything away for retirement, and not reaching even my short term goals. At the very least, I want to keep my options open. Need to think ahead.
