We're still doing OK it's just that I miss making money! I'm a salesperson by nature and salespeople are motivated by money...that's how we measure our success. My 2 @home businesses are doing OK but my patience with making them hit it big is waining.
The other day I went to the eye doctor. (I can now see!) the girl asked, "your occupation?" I stumbled. I literally could not answer her. For my entire professional career I defined who I was by my occupation. When she asked me that question so many things ran through my head, one of which was "who am I now". Silly huh? I finally answered SAHM (I figured Executive Homemaker would confuse her) and felt guilty for not proudly stating that from the get go.
Maybe I've just been couped up in this house too long. Maybe I should get some Mom friends and hang out. Maybe I should get a job. Too many maybes and not enough coffee this morning.
