Thanks, everyone, for your best root canal thoughts. It really does help me to manage my
In the middle of this root canal chaos, I'm trying to make the most of what will likely be one of the last weeks of just hanging around the house with my favourite people. I am working hard on the job search and I really hope to start a job before the end of the summer. Of course I'm feeling conflicted about leaving my current position as charming stay-at-home-mama, but when it comes down to it, I need to start this new stage because I am really excited to try something new (and support my permanent residency-applying American husband who is unable to work here yet). But for now, in between applying for work and nursing my sore tooth, I am loving that I can lounge around in our new backyard. Shira, too, enjoys this time spent lazily around the house (she has a lot of walking to practice).
This time sort of reminds of those weeks before having a baby. You know the time is precious and will be a rarity in the not-so-distant future, and you want to make the most of it. Just like getting used to a new wee one in your life, and the craziness that comes with that new person, I know that transitioning to full-time work after all this time spent at home will be a bit overwhelming. And by overwhelming I mean you might find me sobbing again in some corner, as you have found many times before. So for now, I'll enjoy the rest of this summer and all that it can throw at me. Like peaches, which will be in season here any minute now. I am already dreaming of the pie I will make.
What are you looking forward to as this summer keeps moving along? Any suggestions?
