I'm blocked. Anyone else?

There is so very very much going on in my head and my life and at work that I am blocked. I could use good thoughts or prayers, if you have any to spare.

I know this isn't strictly a parenting topic, but a frequent commenter who maybe doesn't want to be named asked me (just in conversation), "How do I figure out what I want to be when I grow up?"

It's a really good question, isn't it? I think sometimes parents spend so much time being grown up--wiping butts, making meals for people who may or may not eat them, taking people places, putting aside our own needs to make sure others' needs are met--that it's hard to figure out what's next.

If you've figured it out, how did you do it? If you haven't figured it out, how are you coping with not having figured it out?

Free pass for anyone with a kid still in diapers.
