I've been house wife/stay at home Mother for the last ten years.

I dropped out of college when I had my first, my husband has been the supporting our family financially since.

My youngest is starting school next year and I'm not sure what I want to do.

I've thought about going back to school and finishing up my degree.

But to be honest I'm so burned out, I am also thinking about just enjoying the free time with the all the kids being in school.

I feel like I've lost my zest for life and I'm just living to provide care for my family.

On the outside I am the perfect house wife...but I feel like I am only partially living.

I don't even know if have enough left in me to want more than this half life.

Volunteer work is a great way to feel fulfilled and still stay at home to take care of the kids.  I work, but I still do a lot of volunteering so I meet new people, make friends, and feel like I'm helping the community.

I have been home for 9 years. I graduated college, worked, stayed home fir 3 years with my first, worked some more and have been home for 9 years since the birth of my second. I'm getting the itch to go back part time. I enjoy working.

Did you feel scared before you went back to school?

Being the older in the classes?

I was very scared before I went to school and I was one of the oldest in the class, most were between twenty four and thirty three. I brought alot of maturity and work experience to the table.
