Things I love to do

As I try to figure out what I am going to do with my life, since my kids don't need me anymore, I have been taking time to really, really, look at what I love to do.  Here's my list:

1.  I love being at home.  I am not the best housekeeper, and I don't really like to cook, but I like being here, available for my family.  Not just my kids, but my in-laws, nieces and nephews.  Let's not forget hubby.  I like being needed.... by people I actually care about.

2.  I like being involved in education and helping kids make educational breakthroughs.  I still don't know how I can make any money doing this, but it is not something I want to give up.

3. I love theatre design work!  A. Whole. Lot.  It plays into my strengths as an artist, which is what I studied in school, and I love the temporary nature of it.  You plan a show, you design the clothes and set, it gets used, and it goes away.  It is very project based, and I excel in this area.

4.  I love architecture. I'm considering real-estate and a profession... maybe.

I am going to encourage all of you homeschool moms to go ahead and make a list now, and not wait until your homeschooling days are almost done before you consider yourself and how you want to spend your time.  I feel like I should have thought about this at least a year ago, so I could begin to find a position working part time in a theatre or apprenticing or something.  Now I am behind the 8-ball and feel the need to get a job doing anything while figuring it all out.
