The White Jacket - Part Eight
Progress - Finally!
I finally have the jacket ready for lining!
It seems like this jacket hasn't moved along very quickly. I've been very busy with other things, and the whole process is time consuming. I do know that good results take patience and time, but now I'm ready to finish this up! I have the next two days off from work (basketball tournament in another state), so I should be able to finish the jacket this weekend.
Q/A: Many of you asked why I wasn't teaching next year. I have chosen not to teach next year for personal family reasons. My children are getting older, and contrary to popular belief, we're finding that they actually need more parental attention rather than less. This is difficult to do when both parents work and/or have long commutes. It is not that I don't like teaching, if I didn't, I would have quit after my first year, the 93-94 school year. Why have a career you don't love? It is not that I don't like my work environment, in fact, my colleagues and I get along rather well, more like a family than just coworkers.
Parting Shot: Another lost tooth. The tooth fairy had to work overtime this month - the two top front teeth are now missing. So much for eating whole apples!
