I know I am not the only Mom out there who still hasn't figured out what she wants to be when she grows up. Will I continue to work from home when they are older? Will I go back to the classroom? Will I go back to practicing? Will I work in a prison? Private practice? Anxiety clinic?
I really don't know. I find that trying to plan those things out too far in advance just makes me more anxious. Therefore I have no five year plan (or two or one or five minute...). I guess I have been happy just winging it.
Then today I went to Lowe's with Jack. It was gorgeous outside. He was happy. The sun was shining. We walked almost every aisle brainstorming projects. We spent way too much time out in the garden department. We looked at flowers and trellises and soil and bricks. We got into a lovely conversation with a woman who works there who has a twenty-year-old set of twin girls.
That was when I decided (at least for this minute) that I want to work in a garden center when I grow up. I love to talk flowers and soil and projects so why the heck not.
I am guessing that I will have moved onto something else by the time I hit publish but for now I have it all figured out!
