Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly (book) blog hop hosted by Parajunkee. This week's feature is Angela from Angela's Anxious Life. This week's question is on a more personal note: What do I do when I am not reading?
I try to read as much as I can because it is my escape. Everyone has their "thing" that helps them relax. My thing is reading. During the school year (August-June) I am surrounded by moody middle schoolers. All of my time is spent grading papers, making tests, tutoring, trying to speak to parents, planning with other teachers, looking for new jobs (we all have those days), and reading/searching the internet for things to use in the classroom. With only 24 hours in a day, that takes up most of my free time.
Periodically, I go to a movie with the kids or shopping for shoes. Most Friday nights the hubs and I rent a redbox movie when the kids go to the grandparents' house--he watches while I read on the couch.
I also moonlight as a domestic diva in training. I play around with crafty things: making whimsical furniture and accessories for the kiddos, quilting, making 80s cartoon inspired jewelry, etc. Eventually, I'll get around to opening an Etsy store.
