A New Way To Cook A Pig

Papa is looking for a new way to bring home the bacon. Really it's about time. He's qualified in so many other areas and the burnout rate at his most recent gig is high. He's last much longer than most.

The thing is he's so fragmented about what he wants to do. One day he wants to be a business man, the next day a clown. Okay, not really, but you get my drift. He's just not focused. Every time some new idea comes up he's hopping down that bunny trail. I want him to pick something and stay with it. I would prefer he stay out of social services as it pays for crap, but I don't think he'll ever get this whole son-of-a-preacher-man identity out of his system. His desire to help the masses is often frustrating.

Maybe it's a mid-life crisis or something? Fine, but get over it already!

Has he thought about going to see a career counsellor or take some kind of career test? I mean if he's serious and all it might be worth looking in to.

Otherwise I'll be in the market for a birthday clown in April.

Awww... I know you want to avoid social services but he is SO amazing with kids.

I second TKW, maybe try the career counseling route? Can't hurt, right?

If he figures it out LMK, mabey it will help my hubby figure out what he wants to do...of course I'm one to talk, I'm using the whole SAHM thing to not have to decide for myself yet ;-)

Football Widow's hubs is doing the same thing.

Good luck.

Sorry on the job thing. I sometimes think my dh is having a midlife crisis too. Aren't they a little young for that? Or am I in denial about how old I really am?
