To Work Or Not To Work

For me, it's an ongoing dilemma. When I'm working, I yearn to be home as a 'Stay At Home Mom' . After I'm home for a while, I wish to be working again. To bring in more scratch, to expand my career wings. I fought as a women's libber for the right to have it all in the early 70's. 'I am woman, hear me roar'. [Hear me barf if I ever hear that song or mantra again] I have that choice guilt-free, don't I? I have that choice anyway. Now I've been a SAHM long enough to get the itch to go back to work. My youngest child is 14. Can I work again without guilt? Or does that not happen until she's 18, or on her own? Will I ever feel normal about the decision to work? Or will I always feel like I can contribute more if I stay at home? How do other moms manage to hold it together? Or do they have this internal struggle as well. I sure have a lot of questions today, don't I?

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
