After my rant of yesterday, hubby and I unfortunately got into an argument last night. His biggest fear is not being able to find work. My husband doesn't really have a "career" right now. He joined the army right out of high school, served as a medic in the first Gulf War, and then worked in Europe for another eight years doing various oddities.
His skills are tremendous. He has no problem finding work. But as far as a career goes - well, that's a different story.
We are very different in these two areas. I earned my BA and MA in History. I'm not using my degrees right now. Which is okay - for awhile - but I'm itching to somehow combine my history and my writing into one career.
Hubby doesn't have a degree. He's had several jobs, but nothing as far as a career.
We might be at an impasse on this whole issue. I hope not, but darn...I don't want to live in the same town the rest of my life. Granted, I moved clear across the state to go to grad school, but I still live in Nebraska. I've never lived anywhere else. I want to change that.
Hubby is thinking of going to school now - unfortunately, his G.I. bill benefits have run out - it's been too long. But when they take a look at our income, any college is going to be more than happy to give us money! LOL
I keep thinking...if I could just get my writing career off the ground, we'd be okay. We could move anywhere and I could write full-time.
But I want something more. I want to be able to use my history career - even if it is part-time as a volunteer.
The saga continues...
I've always tried to live with this mentality: One day at a time. Unfortunately, when I implement it, I fail spectacularly. But for this...
We have a big snowstorm headed our way. Now usually these snowstorm predictions tend to be far grander than what actually happens - i.e. we ...
Yesterday I woke up in a fantastic mood. I felt pretty good (you never feel terrific when you have chronic illnesses) and I couldn't wai...
