Have you ever looked forward to something for so long that when the time finally arrives, you almost can’t believe it?
That’s how we feel right now. With the kids off of school next week, we’re heading out on a much anticipated vacation.
On Friday morning, we’ll arrive in Milan for a Mediterranean cruise that’ll introduce us to parts of Italy, France, and Spain. The itinerary is truly amazing. If you follow us on Twitter, be on the lookout for pictures over the next couple weeks.
Despite my best intentions, my posting schedule continues to be erratic as I seem to miss a post every other week. Every day I’m surprised at how busy I am not working, in the traditional sense.
Speaking of jobs, I’ve actually been going through the hiring process for a part-time job recently. It’s something I’ve thought about doing for many years, but the timing and situation never seemed right. Now, they’ve both fallen into place and I figured “what the hell, let’s go for it.”
I’ll be an adjunct faculty for one of the universities on base geared toward military members and their dependents. I’ve been initially cleared to teach introductory business courses and may get approved for some others down the road. I’m looking to teach maybe one class per term, beginning either this summer or fall.
Aside from teaching and brushing up on the subject matter, this will give me a good chance to sharpen my public speaking skills. It’s been nearly eight months since I’ve spoken with adults on a regular basis. Not that I’ve become a stammering buffoon or anything.
Regardless, I think this will be an interesting experience and something I’ve wanted to try for quite a while. It may even become another way to bring in a little extra cash over the long term.
Well, that’s all for now. Gotta get everything situated before our trip.
