Building Blocks & Jigsaw Puzzles
As much as I tend to prefer expressing myself in writing, sometimes it isn't always the best medium.
I suppose that has been a big part of the problem lately. Along with a severe case of writer's block, a ton of paperwork at work, and the distraction of a very active 4 1/2 year old, it seems that what I've been wanting to write about so very badly, just hasn't wanted to come across very well in blog form.
So, every day I think about the words that I want to share... some days I even sit here with my hands on the keyboard, and my brain flitting about, unable to focus on one thing at a time. I miss the words (practically) effortlessly flowing from my fingertips... my thoughts communicating complete ideas, instead of a million partial ideas, and a thousand questions interspersing themselves between those thoughts.
Life is very good, thank you for asking.
I am really enjoying my job, and, although I didn't receive a pink slip on Friday (for those who don't know: I'm a teacher), I'm still not 100% convinced I'll be working next year. I won't be entirely comfortable until I've signed my name to a contract. However, I do believe I've finally found the right job, and am happy to feel like I have settled into the career I was "meant" to have.
I am lucky enough to have found a man that I've fallen head over heels in love with. We seem to fit together as only two oddly shaped puzzle pieces can, we complement one another in so many important ways, sometimes I am still pleasantly surprised at the way we fit.
We've decided to move in together. I couldn't be happier. I don't even know how to articulate it properly... the excitement, the fear, the anticipation, the thrill... all of these emotions happening all the time in quick succession. Although, the fear has started to lessen, and the excited anticipation is taking its place.
As we get closer to moving day (two weeks and counting), I have done a little reflecting... but mostly, I'm looking forward. And, as excited as I am about the future, I am concentrating on the now. I am happy and excited, and that is a wonderful feeling to enjoy in the moment.
Now, who wants to help us move?
