Maybe it is back to school time, or the new crisp in the air.
Maybe because it was just my birthday.
Maybe it is just because Im me.
But, I have an itch.
An itch to do something. To plan something. To start something.
I wouldn't trade my life as a mom for anything. I absolutely adore being with my kids all day and I cringe at the thought of leaving them. But...there is an itch. I want to become involved in something or someone outside of my kids. I want to use other parts of my brain. The perfect opportunity is out there, I know it is. A need that can be filled in evenings and on occasional weekends. A family, or a child, or an agency that is waiting for a do-gooder such as myself.
Nearly 10 years ago (yes, I am apparently old enough to make that statement), I shared an office with the director of Casa in Montana. I assisted at a few trainings and fell in love with the agency. An information session last night confirmed that one day I will be a part of Casa. Just not right now. I wouldn't be able to give it the time it deserves. But maybe YOU could!
Im the meantime Ill keep looking. This itch is relentless!!
