A busy home life

Since coming back to Canada, I have moved in with my parents, and have started a part time job (with basically full time hours).  I have been so busy, working almost every day, that my blogging has taken a back seat.  I hope to be writing at least twice a week now that I have a steady-ish schedule.

 

Life back in my hometown has been challenging at times to get used to.  I miss seeing the faces of my students.  I miss the Chinese food.  (I do NOT miss the noisiness of China though!)  I miss my teacher friends.  I knew this would happen – that I would have to adjust to living back in Canada after being gone for over 3 years.  While I have discovered just how beautiful my hometown is, I have also realized how much I miss being abroad.  Don’t get me wrong – I am very happy to be back. Being in touch with my kids.  Being with my family.  These are things I am very grateful that I have the chance to have.  But, as I have read in so many blogs, the adjustment is real.

 

I love my job (I work at Tim Horton’s – a Canadian icon) – the people I work with are fun and it’s such a great environment, meeting and talking to people every single day.  It’s a job I look forward going to every day, and when I leave, my job does not come with me.  Not like teaching – which was really a constant job.  Preparing lessons, teaching online in the evening, it was very busy and so I am really enjoying the “mindless” job I have now.  Another bonus of being back here!

 

Anyway – life is getting back to normal for me, and my blogging will become steady once again.  I have missed blogging every couple of days – and I want to continue with my writing and reading everyone else’s blogs!!
