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

Best, best of luck to you with the new job! I hope you love it. (I'm doing the opposite, I'm taking a few months of leave from my job, because I need to step away a bit. But my office has been sending me off as if I'm never coming back-I'm being feted and stuff and it's honestly been pretty unexpected and amazing and stuff, because I spend half my time seriously believing everyone hates me, but then I'm pretty paranoid most of the time. But I have to tell you, I love my office, and when I was seriously depressed? The structure of a job and people expecting me to show up dressed in decent clothes really helped. Even if I was useless when I was there part of that year. And a big part of any office is social--I am really looking forward to my time away, except for the money aspect--but I will miss chatting and coffee breaks and just having people be happy you showed up).
