Life changes

So, I feel like I'm on some sort of journey. Trying to figure out where I'm headed. Some of you know that I like to know where I'm going, how I'm getting there and how I'm getting back home. I don't like the unknown. But that's exactly where I am at right now. My boys are both in school and I've been struggling with what's next. The good news is that I feel like I have a lot of choices(I like to have lots of choices). The bad news is... I have lots of choices, I'm not sure which direction I should be headed. I am trying to find my bliss. I like doing a lot of things. I'm just not sure which one of those things is "the thing". So, I'm searching and gathering information. I don't have any sort of time line so I can take my time. But I feel like I don't have time. That if I wait to long I will run out of time and choices. So, that's me right now, on a journey with an unknown destination. Scary!

All those choices, choices, choices. What are yours? C'monnnnnn, show us the list!

gnightgirl: Nosy, nosy, nosy, but alright I'll tell. ;0)

1.I could just continue staying home. Possibly doing some volunteer work.
2.I could go back to school and get my Psychology degree(this would take me 6-8 years)
3.I could try to start up my own business selling my crafy wares.
4.I could just go get some paycheck job.
5.I could invest in some chickens and try to sell eggs.

There's more but that's all your getting today.

1. No possibly, just do the volunteer work. It will make your heart huger and you'll get that warm and fuzzy feeling all over.

2. You better should get started. I'm gonna need help by the time 8 more years rolls around.

3. You could do that right now already. You can do more than one thing at a time, you know?

4. Naahh...you're meant for bigger things. Besides, the paycheck won't mean much if you dont have the time to use it.

5. Again, get it going. What are you waiting for? I'll buy some. Put me down for 1 1/2 dz a week. That is how many I get now.

frugal mom: And just how are you going to get your eggs every week? And have you ever noticed how chickens kind of look like reptiles? It's freakin' me out a little. And I'm thinkin' I should maybe hang out with some before I make the committment to raise them. What if I really don't like them.

See how much funner it is when you reply to the comments...

You know what happens when you give yourself too many choices? You get overwhelmed. Narrow it down.

Stop lollygagging around about the chicks. Just do it.

Mim said...

I am not lollygagging around. I am trying to make an informed decision. You are just trying to get me to do it first so you can learn from my mistakes.

I pretty much do have it narrowed down.

I agree with frugal mom - just do it already! Then you can use the poop to fertilize the garden and then you could start doing the whole farmers market thing and before long, you'll be out yonder in your bib-overalls, braids and clodhoppers scoopin' poop, gatherin' eggs and weedin' the rows!!! ;-) Reptiles??? Maybe something prehistoric, but reptiles? Here lizard lizard lizard. Okay, I'm done now - worked 12 hours today and I'm tired, giddy and wine infested! LOL

Miss: I definitely think you've had too much to drink. I mean come on, Braids?
