so i saw julie and julia with my friend burley shob, otherwise known as shirley bob, yesterday. the hubs has been so lovely to take care of the kiddos while i've gone out often with some friends these past weeks. wonderful to have a break!
the movie just made me think how you can wait half your whole life to find a career and then BAM, it happens. except this took julia child like 10 extra years to get it all together.
so what are you passionate about? what do you wish you could do if you could do anything in the world? it made me think about my new sewing gig. see, i walked around target and world market with my friends amanda and stormy and kept saying, "i could make that." --because eventually i will be a world-famous seamstress. perhaps a younger vera wang. ;) think positive. --that's what i always say. or maybe i should always say "think delusionally"
but in all reality, the hubs and i had a discussion tonight about work/schooling/etc. i am trying to plan long-term for what i'll be doing when our children are of school age. the things i'm most passionate about are speech pathology and sign language interpreting. i think if i did both, i'd be the bomb-dizzle fo-shizzle.
i just don't want to compromise how important family is for me in order to accomplish a career outside the home. the knowledge that the stay-at-home-mom extravaganza is short-term makes me a little sad. i love being home. i love cleaning. --i know, weird. i love playing with my kids and watching them learn and grow. i love teaching them about the Lord. (and not in that order).
so what to do, what to do....it's a head scratcher, i know.
i'm up for suggestions. :)
