Since then, I've switched to teaching part-time, our oldest has begun a new journey as a first grader at a Montessori charter school, the youngest has continued in his Montessori preschool adventure, and my husband has tackled a world of challenges and changes at his job that we wouldn't have imagined all those months ago. Some of us are busier, some of us are less busy, and on any given day, I'm not sure exactly which is which. But I do know that things are closer to where we want them to be.
Life's a process. There are constant changes both within and outside of our control at work. We're working at rolling with them in a way that is true to our focus as a family. I no longer feel the desperation that I felt a year and a half ago, and it's hard to tell if it is because of the changes we've made, or because we've adapted. I'd like to think it's a little of both.
So, to celebrate my 100th post on this blog, let's have a little giveaway. Leave a comment here (not on the facebook link), and on Sunday, January 22nd I will hold a drawing. The winner will receive a jar of my favorite salted caramel sauce. It's perfect on ice cream, in hot chocolate, or drizzled over a brownie. And it certainly helps to restore my balance when things feel a little crazy.
