It’s all I can do to focus on the difficult task of finishing two episodes these days. By the time I get home, I think to myself, oh, I should write about this! And then I get distracted by the size my ankles and my dwindling Tums supply and before I know it I’ve purchased 10 more pairs of teeny tiny socks.
I have about 5 days and 3 hours of work left and the big question I get is what I’m planning on doing after the baby gets here. And my big answer is, uh, hopefully one day still be employable? Maybe 3 months from now, maybe 6? Maybe… I’ll be a big shot movie producer and all of you will work for me? Being a freelance producer has its downsides. One of them being constantly looking for work and never feeling like you can turn down a job. Also, being a mom and a freelance producer sounds really, really complicated, with a side of really scary that everyone knows I have a baby now and maybe they’ll think I can’t do my job well anymore.
Some of these feelings came up because of that article about women in high powered political positions who have sacrificed a lot for their careers and that “a lot” includes quality parenting time.
Someone bring me my Tums! I like the fruit flavored kind. And have you seen the size of my ankles?
