Second chances

I have not worked since July of 2009. During that time, I have learned that I have an identity that doesn't come from the work I do. I have learned to let myself daydream, dawdle, and take time for whatever is interesting me at the moment. I want to find ways to spend my extra my time that make me feel useful.

This year, I wrote my second.

I love to use my hands to create things by sewing, knitting, painting, and gardening. I love to read mysteries, historical novels, and biographies. I love to sing along with music and pretend I'm on stage.

My husband got all his paper piles in the dining room cleared up yesterday. It was very nice. Then he took me out to dinner. I think today we are going to go shopping for a new computer!
