Cherry blossom season...  
...is my favorite time of year, no question. Man, if I could only bottle that scent. We have a gorgeous tree in our backyard. It's actually crabapple, and has white blossoms, which I like even better than the pink cherry blossoms. It's gorgeous and smells absolutely heavenly. Here's a few pics, two taken from underneath, looking up through the branches, and one showing more of the tree.




In other news, sadly, I'm going to be starting a full-time job in April. I've been self-employed for the last few years and while the flexibility has been amazing, especially with a little one, the money is just not what it needs to be. Also, it's been pretty isolating - I mostly work from home, often in my pj's, and that really does not help my depression. I think I need to be up and about and interacting with other human beings for my mental health. Don't get me wrong, I'm an introvert, but almost no human interaction, and sitting on my butt all day? Not a recipe for a happy Sky.

So wish me luck, guys - I'm hoping that the job will be fun and the people will be nice. I'm going to have a 45 minute train commute each way, so I'm hoping to use some of that time for writing.

What's up with all of you?

And now I'm off to pick up little dude from the babysitter. I'll try to post some new pics of him later.
How do I feel?: calmcalm

Re: i iz conflicted.....
Thank you, honey! Yeah, I'm seriously conflicted too. This is going to majorly cut into my free time... and I'm really sad about how it'll cut into my time with my sweetpea. I'll get him up and dressed in the morning, and drop him off at daycare on my way to work, and then by the time I get home my husband will already have put him to bed. I'll get maybe 10 or 15 minutes with him a day during the week. Thinking about that makes me want to cry.

And of course, I will miss my chat buddies too, and my writing time, and... yeah.

But - need money, and need to get out of the house, so...


Yes, we should chat sometime soon. I am free tomorrow, if you want to hop on gchat at any point?
