I think a little part of me has always wanted to be a homemaker.
From as far back as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to a seamstress. I have a great aunt who used to babysit me every now and again. She was married, her husband worked, but that’s basically what she did for a living. She was definitely and influence. I have a sewing machine that’s in my bedroom collecting dust. We’ve really never had the space in the house for me to even set it up (that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it) but once I get the space, and the time, and the equipment, I want to get back into it. I’ve also been cooking a lot this semester and feeding some of the freshman guys from the choir. One of them told me I was a “clean-up woman” (Betty Wright, anyone?), but I don’t know about all of that. Those are my boys though, they get taken care of.
It would be wonderful in the future to have a family to take care of…and still have my Ph.D and a private practice on the side.
