I’ve entered the final year of my 30′s and I’ve been very contemplative lately. I’ve been thinking about life and where to go from here. I’m pretty sure that there are no more babies coming from this Overtired Mommy, due largely to epilepsy. I would love to be pregnant again, and give birth again, and snuggle a newborn again, but those pregnancy seizures are too darned scary.
In August Ziggy will be entering preschool. He’ll only be there for a half a day, but it still leads me to thinking about my future. I’ve loved staying home with my babies, but I think I’ll be feeling a bit of empty nest syndrome.
I’m trying to figure out what my future holds. I want to go back to school. I’m trying to figure out what I’d want to study, and where I’d want to go. What job do I want to do for the rest of my life? I’ve considered nursing, but while I don’t mind getting shots myself, I cannot give a shot to another person. My husband was having some problems, and needed to administer weekly shots at home. The nurse wanted to train me to give them to him, and I stood in the corner, trying not to pass out. I’m thinking I might not make the best nurse, and may need more medical assistance than the people I’m trying to help, if I end up on the floor.
I’ve been toying with a few other ideas. I’m not too sure what I’ll end up doing. I guess, I’ll keep doing some research and pondering my future.
