I am very type A. I tend to overschedule myself, but I also get a ton done. People have always been amazed at how many activities I juggle. So, of course I married a laid back dude, who *usually balances me. However, I feel like after 10 mos of marriage, my perspective has changed. It is such a weird feeling. Right now I have a high level career at a huge company, and am doing a weekend masters at a top 10 school. However, I feel like I could be perfectly happy being a housewife! I find I’m having a hard time giving my hubby the love & attention he deserves with my current career schedule, and I think he is more important in the long-run. But, I can’t help to feel torn about *all my hard work* should I jump off the ladder now!
My DH is perfectly happy w/ me working or not, which is a very strange feeling to have, as I’ve always been very driven and usually made more than my previous serious BFs….I finish my masters in December, and a major professional certification probably 1Q2010…Right now I am thinking I’ll at least keep on this schedule until I get pregnant, but even that makes me feel cliche, lol.
Anyone else adjusting your schedule drastically post-marriage? How do I reconcile these 2 people (me & me)!? 😉
