I have been thinking about this for sometime now and Sotorrific Twins recent blog made me want to write about this. So, I have been a SAHM for over a year now counting the time that I was out of work on bed rest. I have absolutely loved being a SAHM, but I have truly missed other adult contact. I am so lucky to have Tom be a teacher, he is home at a very reasonable time and has a good amount of time off. Even with this, I still feel like I have limited time with other adults and especially now with the winter here, I am stuck more in the house than I was before. I posted to my twins group about activities to do with the kids in the winter and got some really good ideas. I joined The Klubhouse in Woburn today and I think that may help things. I hope that the kids get to enjoy being with other kids and I hope that I get to be around some other adults.
The other thing that I have been thinking about is my career. I got my MSW 2 months before I found out I was pregnant with Michael. I stayed at my place of work through my pregnancy with him then was pregnant with the twins 3 months after I had Michael. Now it seems I am re-evaluating if I truly want to be a social worker. It's pretty crazy to think that I spent all that time and money and am now thinking about changing careers. What would I do instead though? I have to admit, that even when I was getting my MSW I wasn't totally sure that it was what I really wanted to do, I just knew that I needed to at least get my MSW so that I could have more option within my profession at the time. I guess I have some time to think about what I really want to do.
Some how I really need to find other adult connections. At this point I'm not exactly sure how to do that. I hope some day I really figure it out!
