When I Grow Up

So I'm really going to have to decide what I want to be when I grow up - soon.  Well, one of these days, anyway.  I even entered a giveaway recently, and to enter we were supposed to tell what we wanted to be when we grow up - or what our dreams for the future are.  I entered anyway, even though I really don't know.  I just said that, now that my son is in his first year of college, I guess it's time I figure out what I want to be when I grow up.
I wonder if I should start by deciding what I don't want to be.  Or maybe what I don't think I'm cut out for.  For instance, I don't think that anything that requires wearing nursing scrubs is for me.  Mostly because I think there's a lot of school involved, and I'm not really ready to commit to a lot of years of school.  If I paid for all that school, I'd definitely need discount scrub pants to make up for it!  It's not just about the money, it's more about the time involved.  If I'd started earlier instead of staying home with my kids, it might have been different.
I'm really thinking I'll have to pick something I already know how to do and decide this is what I want to be when I grow up.  Now, what would that be?  Cook, cleaner, web page tweaker?  I'll figure it out eventually.  The only upside is that I won't need to find out where to buy cheap scrubs.  I'll leave that to the people who figured it out earlier and already did the school thing.
