soul search

Pillow in the Etsy shop!
Continuing to update the Etsy Shop this week. (I'm completely stuck on what to draw for "J" of my ABCs - any suggestions?) I'm finding myself in the middle of a soul search today. I'm so happy for a friend of mine that just completed her final architectural registration exam - something I've yet to tackle myself. Once these munchkins are off to grade school, do I go back into architecture? If so, I should start studying and taking those exams. Do I want to really try and make a go of what I've been doing here at home (designing, sewing, painting, etc.) - take on consignments, more wholesale, a booth at a Gift Show? Big question - what do I want to be when I grow up? It's funny - a few weeks ago I decided that I was going to put as much time as I could into Out of the Box for the next year and see where that takes me. I wasn't going to allow myself to feel weighed down by those looming exams. I was going to put them out of my mind - I still have 4 years left. But now with this news, I've allowed all those concerns and all the guilt of completing all that schooling and doing nothing with the degree to lurk back in. Can you hear Pooh's sweet sigh, "oh bother" ?
