We worked our schedules so that on my husbands days off I would work part time. It worked out pretty good. Then we had an opportunity to move back "home" to be closer to our families. So we did. And I became a full time stay at home mom.
I also struggle with the fact I have a degree that I am not really using. God gave me a gift, a talent, for art. And I haven't been using it to my fullest. I will say, however, being a mom, comes first. And yes, art has and will take a back burner, but when I have time, I will do something little.
