work-life balance AND glasses!
The work is not solely ours...
(and again, if it is familiar, that may be because you are subscribed to the Winnipeg Jewish Post & News...) My work is not in syndication or anything, but it does sometimes get reprinted. :)
This article makes more sense when you consider that I stepped down from two big volunteer activities recently. I served on the board of one, and was involved with another from its inception--and I just realized I needed to step down and cut myself more of a break. It has taken me a long time to start feeling better again, and I needed to find more time off somewhere. My twins, household, and work life aren't going anywhere, so I had to reconsider some other obligations.
To be honest, I've been relieved since I did this, but it was a hard decision. I didn't think I spent so much time on it, and in fact, had no idea how much time I spent on volunteering until I stopped doing it all. Whew.
In other big news, one of our twins just got his first pair of eyeglasses! It's a big adjustment, but he is very excited about the whole thing. I'm hoping it helps a bit with learning to read and will improve some of his depth perception, so he does not fall quite as often. It's been a big week around here.
No pictures right now, but imagine a very proud 5 year old who just chose his own black "Ray Ban" frames and is thrilled to have the glasses. A big deal!
