Hello to all of my loyal blog readers.
I have to apologize for the seeming lack of posts this week. I've not been inspired to write anything. I have a new job at the Library (10 hours per week) and it feels like I'm going to have no time at all to do anything. When I think about it logically, that's silly. Ten hours per week never put THAT big a dent in someone's life, and I'm sure I'll adjust, but it's the first time I've had any regular work out of the house since before Daniel was born. So it's weird.
By the way, how does ANYONE have time for ANYTHING when both parents work full time? I mean, really - where is the quality of life?? Like I said, 10 hours per week is really going to change my life. How does anyone do 40?? And, in particular, how do both parents work 40 hours per week and still maintain a connection with their children?
How did our society decide that this was a good way to live? Somewhere along the line we all became focused on money and stuff. So if both parents worked, we could have more stuff. And then, all of a sudden you HAD to have the stuff. You HAD to have two cars so you could both get to work. And you had to have the expensive, processed food because no one had time to cook. Then anything that you bought just didn't seem like enough - you had to have more stuff and better. You had to take better trips. You had to buy your kids everything they wanted because you felt guilty about never seeing them. You had to have a bigger house. Doesn't that all seem silly? Well, it does to me. But here I go getting a few hours work per week because we need a little extra money. Will it ever be enough?
Anyhow, I hope to have something interesting to say soon. When I do, I'll post it up on Facebook as per usual.
Hope you are all well and happy, and I hope the Universe is smiling down upon you.
