Big Decision

My kids and I have discussed what our future is holding for us.  By discussed, I mean I talked and they listened.  Even though they are grown, they still see me as head of household and the major decision maker.  This can come in handy at times, but I am ready for partners, not followers!

So, I told them we act as equals and they can make whatever decision they want.  After staring wide eyes at me for a minute, they half-heartedly agreed.  So, we had our conversation.

I want to go back to doing home child care.  I want four or five preschoolers to teach!  I love the group interaction and the silly kids!  We watch kids now, but only part-time at each location, so it’s actually pretty hard to do any serious teaching or projects.  So, trying for a home child care would be so wonderful!

The problem is this poor old house is not even close to being able to pass an inspection.  It will take a lot of work and time to get it inspection ready.  But, we have decided to give it a try!  I want to have it ready in a year, or sooner.  We can do most of the work ourselves.  We will make improvements as we get the funds to do them.  It might be fun!

I am very excited and I do hope this works!  My daughter said she would be more than willing to partner with me after her current nanny position is done, which is after the 2015/2016 school year.  Perfect!

I just wanted to share my news.  I might even post some before and after shots as things get done!

Too Many Posts? I Think Not!

A blog I love and follow, The Return Of The Modern Philosopher, has been cutting back on posts.  Why, you might ask?  Because Austin has been told by some that he posts too much!  Nonsense!

Unless WordPress is threatening with suspension for spamming, there is no reason to cut back on posts.  If someone doesn’t like how often a person blogs, then they need to unfollow or just not read.  I don’t think someone has the right to tell a person to stop posting so much.

I greatly enjoy the Modern Philosopher, and he has real talent.  His posts range from his daily adventures to wonderful and creative stories!  He has a talent for expressing his “deep thoughts” as he calls them, in seemingly whimsical and entertaining stories.  Some might be fancy, but I suspect they hold much deeper meaning than he wants to admit.

Now, go forth and read people!  And judge not harshly, lest GrannyK  jumpeth down upon you with her mighty wrath!

Blog on, Austin, blog on!
