I’ve had 12 glorious days off of work – woo hoo!
Tomorrow is my first day back after Christmas vacation and I’m apprehensive. I’ve gotten fairly comfortable not going into work, although I enjoy my job at my non-profit marketing position for a Christian organization. It’s not that I don’t like to work. I’ve worked since I’ve was 15. It’s more that I have so many things to do in my “off time” such as knitting, making jewelry, spending time with my husband, playing with and walking the dog, cooking and baking, drinking Chai tea at the local coffee house while trying to write the great American mystery novel. There simply isn’t time to work. My friend and I joke that our day jobs are really getting in the way of our crafty, free time. If I could only train the cats to complete a paper route in the mornings … Or, if I could find some wealthy benefactor to finance my making of jewelry and doing other “free time” activities. Are there grants for such things? To whom should I apply? Suggestions are welcome!
