The Latest MOOs

When I asked my husband what I should blog about (I've been feeling uninspired), he said "cows". So, whether or not he was serious, here goes:

to ruminate:
1. to chew the cud, as a ruminant.
2. to meditate or muse; ponder

This is how I've been treating my job lately--I ruminate all the time about this and that. Right before I go to sleep. On my way to school. During my down-time in the day. Lately I've been ruminating about how boring and un-challenging my job is right now. I've gotten over the initial hurdle of getting to know the school, procedures, etc. Now I just feel like a glorified tutor who runs the occasional meeting, and fills out paperwork. This position isn't challenging enough.

And yet, if there was a job to open up this fall to teach children who are deaf/hard-of-hearing, I don't think I would take it. Afterall, the Lord led me to this pasture for a reason. I prayed that I would be in the place where He could use me best, and I choose to have faith that this is that place.

Even if every once in a while it smells like cow poo.

Hm. Do you feel like you're helping students? That gut feeling when you know you just helped someone, somehow?

I think people in your age-group change jobs 5 or 6 times in their career. It will be interesting where you settle in someday.

I wonder if it is the looong commute to work that causes these rumination symptoms. You know that idle mind saying. I would quote it, but I don't remember it.

Ruminate about your visit to your parents in France! Mom

OK - I think I understand. It sounds like you're following your heart, even if right now it's not exciting.
