The looming empty nest
Friday, January 18, 2013
I stll have about four years until I will experience this, yet it is looming it's uncertain head. Having dedicated the past 17 years to my dear daughters' upbringing and education, I am beginning to wonder what my future holds. Little did I suspect those many years ago that the economy would tank and employment options would be so limited. I do not regret in the least staying home and teaching my daughters...They have grown to be wonderful young ladies with bright futures...Yet, I am wondering what the next half of my life will look like. Would I reopen my homedaycare? Would I go work in an outside preschool? Would I return to school to be trained in another different field(assuming I could find the money for this)? Would I even be able to get hired after being out of the workforce for over 10 years?
