I will so totally stick around! So sorry about the valley girl stuff just now, but I am exactly where you are. I want to get out of health care and do something else. That feeling where you are not sure where to point your compass is a bit nauseating, but I am a firm believer in things working out as they are supposed to. If you enter the realm of health care, I guarantee you will never be bored again. Every day is completely different and you use every last inch of you mind, body, and soul...it is a privileged place to work as it gives you loads of perspective on life.


Does it ever get any easier? I'm 46, and I still don't know what I want to do, aside from making lots of money. Do I ever have to grow up?


So, DO IT! All you need is for you and Martin to each have some sort of computer work-from-home job, and you can do all sorts of things!


I went back to school when I was 40. By the time I was 51 I had my MBA. I wish I could afford to go to law school. I think that would be the most fascinating thing to do. Go back Lisa---you will have your degree in no time. Alot of college courses are taken online at home, in your own time. Like after Mia goes to bed you sit in the computer room and go to class.
GO BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Lis, go for it. I too am feeling that whole "What am I doing with my life? Which direction do I want to go in? What it best for my husband and son? I do like my job, but being a salesperson in the beer and wine industry I can't help but feel that I am not doing much good. Actually, probably more harm than good.
So, I have had a few interviews lately, for two different companies, and am hopefully, most likely going to get an offer from one of them. Yep, a little less pay, but definately more time with my son and Mr. Robinson. AND it will most likely be far more personally rewarding than selling alcohol!

What I'm Reading

  • Edward Ugel: Money For Nothing
    Subtitled, One Man's Journey Through The Dark Side Of Lottery Millions. (****)
  • Susan Braudy: This Crazy Thing Called Love
    The true story behind the Billy Woodward shooting, the case on which Dominick Dunne based his novel, The Two Mrs. Grenvilles. (*****)
  • Matt Birbeck: A Beautiful Child
    True story about the mysterious life and death of a young woman who's real identity still remains unclear. Excellent read. (****)
  • Richard Yates: Revolutionary Road
    A novel about the alienation arising from living in the "perfect" suburbs. Hailed as a great literary book. I thought it was okay, at best. (**)
  • Annie Proulx: Close Range, Wyoming Stories
    A collection of lyrical short stories from Annie Proulx that contains Brokeback Mountain among other gems. (****)
  • John Grisham: The Innocent Man
    I can only quote from the jacket blurb: "If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is fair, this book will infuriate you." A must read. (*****)
  • Nancy Caldwell Sorel: The Women Who Wrote The War
    Fascinating look at women journalists at the front during WWII. (****)
  • Jack Olsen: Charmer
    Riveting true crime by a master. (****)
  • Ann Rule: Too Late To Say Good Bye
    Excellent telling of the Bart Corbin cases. (****)
  • Michael Crichton: Airframe
    Ehhh. Better than the back of a cereal box, I guess. (**)
