I feel like I am finally settling down. I am liking where we are more and more every day. I am growing to love the people in our lives. I am in a very good place.
Since returning from Georgia for Christmas, my life has been filled with a lot of time wasting, trips to the park with Henry, and wondering what is next for me. I quit my full-time nanny job right before the holidays, praying that God would provide something part time and wonderful. We couldn’t go on putting our dog in daycare 5 days a week, I was neglecting all of my new born friendships that were forming, and I was just plain exhausted. I knew that coming into the new year would be a rough time for me, but hoped that it would lead to something great.
Yes, it has been a lonely time feeling like a stay at home dog mom, but I’m happy to say that I am starting a new part time job tomorrow afternoon. I am officially the new after school teacher/gymnastics coach at National Elite Gymnastics!! Okay okay, I know this is totally random. The things that drew me to apply were a) the hours. I get my mornings to exercise the crazy dog, my afternoons to work, and my evenings to spend with Josh. b) the gym. I really miss tumbling and liked the idea of getting to exercise in that way once again. c) the kids. They are some of the sweetest kids I’ve ever met. Sure they are pretty keyed up after sitting in school all day, but that’s half the fun of it.
God’s been challenging me and speaking to me a lot during this quiet time in my life. I’m truly grateful for the past month. I hope and pray that this new job will be yet another opportunity in my life to poured out and stretched so I can eventually rid myself of this curse called laziness and live a completely amazing, busy, fulfilling life here in Austin. It really is hard as heck to have a busy life in a new city. Or maybe it’s not. It is for me. Anyways…
I’m grateful, hopeful, excited, and content. That’s way more than I deserve.
Have a great week everybody!
