I've been accomplishing quite a lot these days, in my quiet way. Writing up a storm, doing lots of fun things with the daycare, getting special times in with my children, my husband, AND even some friends, too!
I've taken the first step towards moving from daycare to writing -- all you friends who see me here are safe to tell: I'm blogging for Aisledash dot com under my real name, which is unusual. I won't be hard to pick from the list! But, shhh! I try very hard to keep my MaryP persona and my real name quite separate. In fact, the only reason I'm letting you guys know is because I'm hoping that in a couple of years, it won't matter any more.
All this to say -- I'm getting IMPATIENT. I want the move made NOW. I don't WANT to wait another year or two (or, heaven forbid, three) to be on my own.
To be able to walk through my EMPTY house during the day. To be able to set down a cup of tea without calculating safety. To be able to pee on my own. To be able to go for a spontaneous - FAST - walk, on the spur of the moment, with no more prep, time needed than to tie my laces.
Imagine! Sadly, I need a steady income. We cannot afford a substantial drop. We can barely afford a small one. So, I keep up with the daycare, I add on the writing, and soon, soon, but NOT SOON ENOUGH, I will be a Real Grownup with a Grownup job. That I can do in my pyjamas.
Not that I would.
