I have been in a very complicated mindset over the past couple years since I graduated college and quit my part time job. I moved in with my husband, lived in Virginia for 6 months, and then lived in California for 10. I had said the entire time that when we were assigned a “permanent” duty station that I would pursue my career, well we moved to our permanent duty station when Elizabeth was 10 weeks old, and at that point I didn’t want a job, and we didn’t need for me to have one. Well here I am now with a 13 month old and I’m so ready to get working, except, I’m 32 weeks pregnant. I’m stuck with the huge desire to work and provide additional income (think about our journey to be debt free) and am pretty much unemployable with only 2 months of work until I’d need a bunch of time off for the birth of baby #2.
I told you it was complicated. My husband and I have been considering getting me into school again for the duration of time that I plan to stay home with both nuggets to allow me to be more employable upon job search time. Criminal Justice is not the easiest degree to job search with especially when constantly moving around the country or world. Have you ever been in a similar situation?
