Second chances

I have not worked since July of 2009. During that time, I have learned that I have an identity that doesn't come from the work I do. I have learned to let myself daydream, dawdle, and take time for whatever is interesting me at the moment. I want to find ways to spend my extra my time that make me feel useful.

Sara--I see your blogs on the Almost Empty Nester page but I don't know you! Hello! Good luck on your "no smoking"--that is a tough habit to quit! I hope your Easter ended up pleasant--we only had one DD home and the friends we invited decided they couldn't come. Oh, well--we celebrate as we caN!

Thank you for the thoughtful goodie! I am trying to find the USB cord for the camera so I can upload some photos from our trip and use them in a blog or two. Maybe I should just blog without photos?

My husband got all his paper piles in the dining room cleared up yesterday. It was very nice. Then he took me out to dinner. I think today we are going to go shopping for a new computer!
