So we have an extra day this year before we can welcome March in order to let the earth's rotation catch up to the Gregorian calendar. Who else is aware that there are leap seconds? About every 3 to 4 years? They are to synch the world's highly consistent atomic clocks to the earth's inconsistency. How rude of the earth that we must do this.
I mentioned I took a semi-retirement part-time job at a hospital culinary operation. I enjoy it. Great company, great bosses, great coworkers, satisfying and productive work. Plus, there's a 401k plan. Contract tutors don't get a 401k plan.
The job is a nice balance with the tuting, which can burn me out if I schedule too many students. I felt the need for a break from that too. It still somewhat surprises me that there seems to never be a lack of students looking to hire tutors despite free and cheap resources online. But I guess some people just like someone to be there when they say, "but... I still don't get it 😕". I don't want to chuck tutoring altogether, just cut back a bit, and this fills the empty space nicely. I suck as a "housewife".
And it turns out, I actually enjoy cooking. Who knew? I mean, I'm no Gordon Ramsey, but... well... thank God for that.
Yesterday, I happened to look down and notice one of the expiration date stickers had landed on my shoe.
Is it an omen? Use me before March? After that, I'm trash?
What are you doing with your extra day this year?
Linking up this week with Mama Kat for the prompt:
5. Write about something you need a break from.
