I might need a blogging break for a bit to work on some issues that are arising from my quest to satisfy my intellectual thirst and the needs of my family.
I can’t help the fact that leaving a challenging and rewarding career in the science field has left a definite dearth of intellectual challenge that has been really difficult for me to accept. Even as I worked the tasks at hand at my job, I was always engaging in thought-provoking discussions with my colleagues, because it wasn’t just enough to do my lab work. I absolutely had to have intense discussions too. I can’t get that from my 7, 5, and 4 year old.
But, that being said, I’m not balancing the needs of my family with my intellectual needs well. I need to figure out how to limit myself to certain designated times and not whenever the need to express strikes me (a seemingly impossible task for me).
Please be patient with me as I figure out how to blend my needs with the needs of my family.
(oh, and I will be checking comments periodically, so at least they can be published if you care to respond to something or ask questions. I will do that at least once a day, so don’t be dissuaded from commenting).
Peace, and blessings to you.
