In the past few weeks, I've had several attorneys/judges ask me to go back to doing guardian ad litem work. Reportedly, if lawyers want a guardian ad litem who only does that kind of work, there is about a three week lag time before they can even get an appointment - work is that brisk. I'm holding off, for now, because my grandson is due in February and I don't want to have to worry about court while I visit in NYC. After he arrives and gets settled, I'll seriously consider if I want to come off my Sabbatical. The year has been marvelous for my state of mind and I need to decide if I am ready to start back up in that direction. The problem with trying to do good work as a guardian ad litem is that the "good" ones are worked to death. And I wouldn't want to be anything but a "good" guardian ad litem - the stakes are too high.
This morning, I ran over to the land we are planning to buy to take a few photos. I didn't go onto the property and just took a few shots from the road. Buyer's Remorse hasn't set in, yet. We're still waiting for the survey, however, and need to review it before closing, next week.
I had my last drawing class, yesterday, and the last painting class is in the morning. After I catch up on all my quilting projects and the weather warms up, I hope to paint a picture of the barn. But I have a lot to keep me busy between then and now.
Off to wrap presents.
Happy Quilting, Penny, Evelyn and Pearl
