My friend, Kat, reads the classifieds in the St. Petersburg Times religously. They provide much amusement. This one actually sounds interesting:


English Tutor Wanted: Russian family with two children under the age of 5 seeks English tutor who: * speaks American English, but knows at least a little Russian * is stable and educated *likes children * is able to live with them in Russia and spend vacations with them around the world * is able commit for at least a year, with much flexibility for vacation time The candidate may be male or female and any nationality. Position is well-paid. Please note: The children already have a nanny. This position would require speaking and teaching American English. For more information or to send a resume or c.v., please write to: XXX

Hmmm...I'd be there in a heartbeat if I didn't need more stability right now. *Sigh.* Stability. It's not really much fun...especially when the reasons for your new-found stability are still mist on the horizon.

i believe one of the hardest parts about this process is the putting.your.life.on.hold.for.an.undetermined.amount.of.time.

until you do it, you don't get it.

the job sounds very intriguing actually --- especially the "vacations around the world" part!

Sounds like a wonderful job, but you're right... doesn't work for right now. I feel like my life has been on hold FOREVER. The last time I took a real vacation was before starting this process! Lisa

That sounds interesting!

I know what you mean about stability, though. When you're adopting it feels like your life is held in limbo. God forbid you need an addendum to your home study! I can't wait until I can actually plan a vacation.

Very interesting. That would be a really cool job! I know it really isn't possible for you at this moment.

I really hope that things start moving so you can get on with your life.
