This song is stuck in my head:
Seven A.M., the usual morning line-up
Start on the chores, and sweep 'til the floor's all clean
Polish and wax, do laundry and mop and shine up
And by then
It's, like, seven-fifteen
And so I'll read a book
Or maybe two or three
I'll add a few new paintings
To my gallery
I'll play guitar and knit and cook
Just wonder, when will my life begin
Then, after lunch, it's puzzles, and darts,and baking...
Paper-mache, a bit of ballet, and chess....
Pottery and ventriloquy, candle-making...
Then I'll stretch

Take a climb
Sew a dress
And I'll re-read the books
If I have time to spare
I'll paint the wall some more
I'm sure there's room somewhere
And then I'll brush, and brush
And brush, and brush my hair
Stuck in the same place I've always been
And I'll keep wond'ring
When will my life begin.....
Sounds kind of pathetic when I say that but it is true. I am definitely not defined by my job. And I can tell you that I have genuinely enjoyed having this extra time with the kids. BUT. I am not a person who likes to be idle. I am not a person who likes to be without a firm plan. Being unemployed causes both those things. Not to mention the financial burden or the fact that without the extra money home improvements are out. Or that we are going to need a newer car eventually....or the million other things running in my head.
Basically, I am to the point that I have run out of things to do...now I want my life to get back on track again.
