What is your occupation and those that are in your family?

I am a SAHM. I enjoy to sell on eBay to make extra $$.

My dh is a trouble shooter for a local power company. This job means when power is out he is called first to assess what is needed to restore power and fix it if he is able, or call a crew in to complete the job. He was called out last night at 3:30am.
He works 3 different shifts: 6 am-2pm; 8am-4pm; 2pm-10pm. These shifts are 5 days a week: Sunday-Thursday, Monday-Friday, or Tuesday-Saturday. He has 11 coworkers in this department.

My oldest dd (20) is a full time nanny and she sells Norwex for extra $$.

My next 2 dd (17 and 15) both work at a local ice cream shoppe. Dd#2 has been employed there for 2 years. The 15 year old just got hired 2 weeks ago to make the ice cream treats for the summer.

The 15 year old and my 12 year old also pick asparagus for a local man. His field is just over 2 acres, I think. They pick, clean, and bag it. Yesterday they picked 74 pounds. It takes a few hours. They enjoy the opportunity.

I am no longer working do to an illness. I was a baker for a private school for several years. We would do a lot of scratch baking. Several hundred cookies, cupcakes, you name it. Prior to that I worked in an office. I was a secretary, and I was a Buyer.

My husband works in City Planning & Developing. He still have a few years to go before he can retire.

Myself, I've always been a stay-at-home mom, which I have always loved doing. Being able to care for my children 24/7/365 fit perfectly for our situation.

I think I've done everything except work on an oil rig or climb a telephone pole!
Right now I am a phlebotomist and laboratory technologist for an academic research lab.
Hopefully I will be 'retired' soon, so we will see what that next 'job' will be like!
