I really don’t feel like I have much to post about today. . . .
Yes, I did go running (that’s nothing new), and yes, I did eat (nothing exciting though). But frankly it has been a low-key day—still catching up on things.
I did run 6 miles (51 minutes) this morning.
Craig went into work late this morning since he worked late last night, so he joined me (on his bike) on my run. I love having him next to me while I’m running. We have some of our best conversations during these times.
We spent a lot of time talking about whether or not I should go back to teaching.
I know, I know. . . .it stressed me out so much this past year, and I wanted to quit many times, but there are a lot of perks that are hard to pass up.
Benefits to teaching:
It is hard to pass up good money! I would never be able to find another job that paid as much—not even close for that matter!
How can I pass up the summers off, extended time off around the holidays, and random breaks here and there.
The fact I don’t have to sit at a desk all day.
I am a busy-body and hate sitting down all day!
Teaching works well with my lifestyle.
I am able to run in the mornings before work, keep up with my blog, make dinner, and I have free time during the weekends to do things I enjoy.
Yet at the same time, I DO NOT want to be so stressed out that I live for the end of the school year, my relationship with my husband suffers, my health is compromised, and I am constantly stressed out/depressed and exhausted!!
I just don’t know what else to do! I’ve looked for other jobs, applied for other jobs, but nothing seems to be working out in my favor.
