It is time.

Time is one of the hardest things for me.  Mostly, it's the lack of it!  I never seem to have enough remaining hours to finish everything on my list.  I believe this is a struggle with most moms and wives.

One of my biggest complaints in life (meaning, I bitch about  discuss it constantly) is that some people never have to grow up.  You know the type... they have no dreams.  No ambitions.  No responsibilities.  I have a really difficult time understanding that sort of folk.  It boggles my mind!  Even more boggling is that I have DOZENS of these people in my life.

Annnnyway.  So, since I seem to have all this free time (not) on my plate, I've decided to go back to school!  I really regret ever having dropped out so many years ago.  What a dumb thing to do.  But, as it was, Sarge was enlisting in the Air Force and I couldn't imagine not having him in my life.  So, I traded my books for an iron and life went on.

Now for the problem:  I can't decide what I want to be!  I've had all these years to decide and I simply cannot.  Do I want to be a teacher and have summers off?  That would be nice but we all know I don't really like other people's kids.  Do I want to be a business tycoon?  Hell yes, but I'm scared.  Do I want to be a nurse?  Yes, but I have the world's most sensitive gag reflex.  Seriously, Guiness Book of World Records worthy gagging.  I have to declare a major (yes, I realize it can be changed) in a few days.  Any help would be appreciated!

I've prayed and prayed.  I've looked for signs.  I've done research.  I've made lists.  I've asked Sarge what he thinks.  (For the record, he doesn't care as I long as I actually DO something.  Anything.  And if it came with a paycheck, that would be cool, too!)  Time is dwindling and I need to spring to action.  I'm terrified of becoming one of  those people.  Yikes.



  1. Thanks, Rasha! I'm a baby blogger so there isn't much to see. So glad you stopped by!

  2. Good luck on making up your mind. And congrats on deciding to return to school. Here's hoping the world opens up for you with all its bountiful possibilities. SITS sent me by, and I'm glad they did!

    How 'Bout a Cocktail?

  3. Well, I am in the nursing field. It is an extremely stressful job.. having someone else's life in your hands.. but it is also rewarding beyond belief. There are many many different positions available in the field... and I doubt you will trouble finding and maintaining a position. But I guess I am biased....

    Haha. Good Luck.. and thanks for stopping by!

  4. The stress and the emotion aren't the hold up. It's just the gagging. Blood and germs... eh. I could not do it. I think, perhaps, the reason I'm so drawn to that profession is the tremendous respect I have for nurses. It did not take me more than five minutes in L&D to realize that nurses were running the show and OBs were stealing the spotlight.

    Thanks for all you do as a nurse, Kati!!

  5. I know those people too! Not me! I am so set and goal oriented. And I always have been. But I did leave school after my son was born. I was getting my Masters and stopped 3 classes short! Can you believe that? 3 away from having my Masters. But life has completely changed. I don't think I will ever go back to school or teaching. I love being a stay at home mom and with a son on the spectrum it is just too hard to even think about us both working full time. I just work from home now. Good luck finding something!
