Well, the long and short of it is I got a teaching job at a high school an hour away, so I haven't had much time for reading, blogging, painting, or anything else. I love the school and students, so I'm not complaining too much.
Okay, I do complain, but I think I've finally found a balance between work and home. This balance consists of only trying to do so much and eliminating the rest. For now, that means taking care of my cats and working on cataloging my library. I would like to do math or some painting, but since I may have an extra hour one day and none for the next three days, I lose continuity. The cats I HAVE to do or they get extremely matted. And the library stuff is just something fun.
