Lately I have been thinking a lot about what I really want to do when I go back to work, if in fact I do go back to work. That too is still in discussion. With the kids school and sports schedules it’s almost impossible.
I am blessed that I have a husband that works really hard to provide for his family and I don’t really need to work. I do make a little extra money on the side doing odds and ends like photography, graphic design, waxing eyebrows (I am trying to convince my friends to get their who-has waxed with no prevail, so far…they think it hurts or something), but not an amount of money to brag about by any means. I would probably make more money if I
was a stripper advertised more but somehow one day goes by and then the next and then I just say f*ck it! Maybe next week.
I just renewed my Aesthetician and Nail Technician licenses just in case I do decide to return to the field that I spent 20+ years in. I could write a book with the stories I heard over the years.
The best one was I had 3 lovely ladies that were all going to the same church. Two of them, without the knowledge of the other, were having affairs with the pastor of the church…who was married…AND GIVING MARRIAGE COUNSELING. And the third lady kept trying to convince me that I had to come to her church because her pastor was such a wonderful person. Yeah, and I managed never to say a word…and people wonder why I am not religious.
I really loved working in the industry and am toying with a few ideas if I do decide to return to it. I mean where else can you get paid to sit around and gossip all day?
But there is also a side of me that would really like to try something different which is why while I have been home with the kids I started doing photography which then lead to graphic design. But I realize that I need a lot more training as there are so many new and interesting programs to use. And everything costs more money to get into.
I have toyed with several ideas of businesses to open in this small little town I live in. One of the ideas someone else did and guess what? It’s striving! Which makes me want to stab myself in the eye for not listening to my instincts and just do it.
I am also currently looking into getting Domesticated Momster trademarked. Did you know it can take up to two years to get a name trademarked and that’s with a lawyer? Absurd if you ask me.
My biggest decision about returning to work is that I don’t want my kids to miss opportunities because I decided to go back to work. I don’t want them to have to sacrifice their happiness for my selfishness.
And let’s face it “MOM” really is the best title on my resume so far.
