Busy- I think that is one of the most commonly used words in a mom's vocabulary.
Somehow, I decided I wasn't busy enough- where this idea came from I'm still wondering- but I have taken on several new projects.
Next week, I start teaching an 8th grade CCD (Confraternity of Christian Doctrine,) it's Catholic Sunday school and this year is especially important because my students are also being prepared for Confirmation.
I've already started preparing- and there's lots more to do. Fortunately, IV is helping me- in fact, he is listed as the co-teacher. However, DV will be in class too, so there probably won't be a lot of co-teaching going on- more like taking turns.
I applied for an adjunct position at the university where IV is a professor- I'll either be teaching a lab or a lecture, probably starting the week after next.... maybe not starting until Spring (I am not sure which to hope for.)
Not to mention all of my other activities- running my jewelry business, secretary and board member of my neighborhood association, and of course most importantly being a wife and mother.
So, I am VERY busy. I probably don't even have time to be writing this....
