Question of the Week 
If you could choose any career in the world? 
Would you choose your current career, or something completely different?

My answer:
As a stay-at-home mom, I will admit it, I am pretty content with my current career. Of course my ambitions have had to go on the back burner, but I have tried being a stressed out working mom walking in high heels down the streets of Manhattan while longing for my child at home. I will admit it – I do not have the desire to do this again.

However, that does not mean that my ambitions are entirely gone. While blogging does not pay much, I am pretty sure that I should consider myself a work-at-home mom, because I am doing what I wanted to do. Write! Besides writing on my blogs, I have written several novels during my time as a stay-at-home mom, and I am hoping to pursue publishing once the kids are in school full-time. For now, I just do not have the time, the kid-free time or the energy to get it done, but that is what I really want to be – an author.
