Been out of touch lately

8 posts in this topic

I've been quiet on the forum this last year as my roller-coaster-of-a-school year comes to a close this week. I have been side-tracked with sciatica, physical therapy, looking for a new job, and planning a required course/vacation. I have hardly worked on my Tennyson this spring due to the sciatica and really have been too "edgy" to settle down in the workshop (usually this hobby/passion/obsession settles me down).

My Magnolia is still here as I have been unable to find a child for it (my usual sources have not recommended anyone), and it has been disappointing. One of the things that gets me through the tough parts of a build (aka fixing my mistakes) is imagining the child who will eventually enjoy playing with the house. 

Anyway, I am still here and hope to get back to my normal self mid-July.

Just checking in...

New job is keeping me very busy, but I am sooooo happy to have it! I think I will have settled into my new groove soon (of course, every time I think I have figured things out, a new challenge comes along, so maybe by Columbus Day weekend?). I try to check the forum on Saturdays and see what's transpired over the week. BTW, on one of my interviews, (a job I was almost offered but I was too high on the pay scale for their budget), the question came up about what you do outside of teaching. So, I responded that I built dollhouses and how I had found many resources on-line. This impressed the interviewers, one said that it showed how willing I was to use sources and find answers, etc. 

Ciao for now

New challenges are part of what make jobs fun, no?
