~What Will I Do For Work~

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.cosmetology nail technician aesthetician work ¬†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.
