Caterpillar Pace

We are moving along this year at the pace of an insect. Not quite as bad as a tortoise, but not nearly as fast as a hare! I don't really know what the girls will be doing, and the activities range from our church's girls club, to tennis, ballet, swimming.... piano lessons. On my docket - a new job as a resource teacher (6 hours divided between 3 days a week), organizing a parent volunteer program at the girls' school and subbing? I really don't know. I had considered taking a graduate class, but again, without knowing who is doing what on what day, I just can't seem to bring myself to commit to one more thing!

Why the slow start? Well, it's a long story, and I'm not getting into it, but it caused us to make few important decisions and now I'm feeling kind of suspended. I have kind of a hard time with this amount of uncertainty. It's weird! And while I'd like to take a nice, long vacation, I'm seeing how that would delay the inevitable task of making these commitments. I wonder what a year without any extracurricular activities would look like?? Probably much like my childhood - come home, watch TV, play outside, do a little homework while watching TV, talk on the phone, eat dinner, talk on the phone, go to bed. =) Not so bad. LOL
