CRAP CRAP CRAP....
Just when I make a promise NOT to consider trying for a Russian job, I check the AAS Moscow site and see that they have 25 openings...Are you kidding me?
Even though I have 2 kids and only one teaching adult, I still dream that I could do it.
I am shocked at the number of openings. Wonder if they may have some trouble or if this is the end of many teacher's 2 year contracts.
St. Petersburg has an opening for teaching couple. And we all know I HAve NO HUBBIE!
Not even going to let my mind go there. Remember a day ago? Big new house. Lot's of family, friends, and love around here in the burbs. Easy life, with a lot of day trips here and there...Tina, you can weigh in here. How hard would it be for your daughter if she was on her own?
I am in my 19 year at my job. I have 6 years left. At that point I can retire with full benefits. Full. I will only 47. My Anna would be going into the 7th grade and AugustRose would be in the 4th grade. And maybe I will have a husband by then. (Side note, I am not anxious about ever having a man in my life) (A husband would be the icing on the cake)(I do life well alone with my girlz) (Men confuse me, and I loathe that type of confusion)
The biggest part of this situation is how hard the economy is for everyone, and I would never leave my job permanently. I would gladly take a Leave Without Pay for a couple of years, but in order to do that safely, the paperwork is due to my county at the end of February. And since most of the job fairs are in that month, it ain't happening. There is also the matter of my new house. Would I really want to leave it? See, this is why I said I wouldn't do this. I wouldn't even let my mind wander in these directions.
I have already been told that 2 kids with only one teaching parent is out of the parameters for employment, but I am and have always been the girl who sees a wall, thinks of a way to get over, around, or through it..and then do it.
Funny, how God puts these things into our lives to help grow us in our faith. I honestly don't even know how I would pray through it...Well, actually I think I should just pray.
My house is a hot mess, and my girlz have just left with my sister to go Cosmic Bowling and then onto the book store to spend there gift cards. That gives me a few hours to clean up and try once again to get the girlz rooms in order. T R Y.
See, that couldn't happen if I was overseas.
