What do I DO?

Day 6, Monday: If you couldn't answer with your job, how would you answer the question, 'what do you do'?

Another tough one!  I think we all are almost "trained" to answer this question with our occupation, so it's hard to re-frame your way of thinking about what it is that you do.  I'm going to cheat for just a second though and tell you what my standard answer would be- I teach.  I suppose I'm lucky in the fact that my occupation and what I do in the confines of my job really does describe at least somewhat accurately who I am and what I do in my life.  But, I will try and expand my thinking here...

I rise...
{before the sun}
{to the sound of the kookaburras outside my window}
{to drive my hubby to work at this god awful hour}
I sweat...
{begrudgingly, but I try}
I support...
{students with special needs}
{my husband in this career opportunity}
{my friends and family from afar}
I read...
{blogs, emails, magazines, and the occasional book}
I talk...
{across time zones and international date lines}
I cook...
{healthy dinners while dreaming of baking sweet treats}
I enjoy...
{evenings with my husband}
{laughing together}
{our quiet simple life}
{the occasional glass of wine}
I miss...
{being near family and friends}
{2 day weekends}
{simple American conveniences}
I feel...
{sometimes lonely}
I dream...
{for not enough hours}
{of our next travel adventure}

  1. This is such a cool perspective... I love the approach you took to answer this simple question! And you and your hubby are so darn cute together!

  2. Aww, thanks! It was a much tougher question to answer than I though!


Thank you for stopping by! I love hearing from you!
