I think I want to blog again. I have so much going on at the moment. My youngest daughter graduated and we will soon be empty-nesters. I will be starting a new job in the fall teaching younger students. I keep finding myself at this weird intersection in life. Beginnings. Endings. The beginning of a my daughter's college experience. The ending of my "job" as a parent. (The full-time kids at home part). The ending of my existence as a high school art teacher. The beginning of my life as an elementary art teacher.
It is the beginning of a new kind of life without kids around. It is the beginning of a sort of freedom. Husband and I can run around naked if we want. We can make love without being self-conscious when the kids are awake.
I will have more time to paint. We will have time to do things. Fridays and Saturdays will not be filled with Football games and concerts. No more band boosters meetings.
I would like to immerse myself in painting. I'm thinking of going for my MFA. I have lots of ideas.
I would like to "reopen" this blog perhaps as a place to record what happens next.
