Unfortunately, I won't be able to afford to be a stay at home mom, although that would be what I would WANT to do, so I'll still be a nurse but maybe only 2 or 3 days a week. Eventually, I would like to be working in Labor and Delivery/Postpartum. That is my dream job. I've been a nurse for almost 4 years now and I'm about sick of med surg and working with the elderly!

I used to love my job as a nurse, now it is usually stressful. I still enjoy being a nurse but I would like to actually do more bedside nursing as opposed to passing pills and charting. To once again be surrounded by satisfied staff would also be nice.
I really enjoy training horses even though I am much smellier and my muscles usually hurt everywhere when I go home, the apathy is missing and the horses dont treat me like some kind of slave at a resort.
