No Strings Attached

My eldest daughter wanted to learn how to play the guitar but we don’t own one anymore. So, a friend of mine lends us a guitar. But we have one problem, the guitar doesn’t have strings. She told us just to buy the strings and we can borrow the guitar for a long time.

Since I am not an expert on guitars, I decided to read a string guide. I wanted to buy my daughter a good string for the guitar so she can learn as soon as possible. So far, I haven’t bought the perfect strings yet. Maybe one of these days, I will find the right strings for the guitar.

Living Far Away And Missing My Children

I will be away for a couple of months for business-related reasons. I will be spending the next few months in Vietnam teaching children and practicing my new profession as a school teacher. It sure is a very exciting season in my life and I am highly anticipating this trip. I look forward to new experiences in a different country and meeting different types of people.

Although I welcome the new environment and new memories that I shall be making during my trip, I cannot help but miss my children and our daily routines and bonding activities. Even when I am sure I left them in capable and caring hands I still cannot help but worry about them and wonder whether all their needs are being provided for and if they are sticking to their daily schedule and doing their homework on time.

This is my first time to be away from my children for a long time and my first to be out of the country, too, so I guess all my worries are but normal. Even when I know my children will be in their best behavior, there is no way I would stop worrying and thinking about them. Good thing I can simply chat with them on Facebook or have a video call with them through Skype. Spending my time online to catch up with my kiddos will be a part of my daily activities here Vietnam.

Working away when you have 3 children is truly extra challenging but I am sure I will get the hang of it and find my balance soon. Tonight, after reading this article about, I will make sure to switch the laptop on so I can talk to my kids before going to bed.

Have you experienced living away from your children?
