I'm a mom!
When we got married, we both agreed that I wouldn't work once the kidlets arrived.
H has an interesting job, though - he works at a huge cemetary/mortuary. But, no he doesn't see dead people, only live ones. He's a regional manager for advanced funeral planning.

I am here in the brigade system found commonly in hotels:

Executive Chef
Executive Sous Chef
Garde Manger Chef
Pastry Chef
Chef de Cuisine
Chef Tournant
Sous Chef

I basically float between both the restaurant and banquet kitchens in the hotel and run the areas when the department chefs are off or on vacation. I also work with the chefs in menu development, specials, and if one particular area is expected to be busier than the others during certain days.

I work outdoors. Where the rest of you go to play, I go there to work. I work on a national forest with the Forest Service. I am a vegetation management specialist (that is the PC version of my title) or a Forester/Timber Sale Administrator (non-PC version). The forest I work on is the Tahoe National Forest in California.

Golly, quite a few of you actually work in the food industry. I don't know why that surprises me, but it does. SierraCook, your job sounds like a great one, if only for the environment. I never wanted to work in the food industry. I just like to cook. I work as Senior Payroll Analyst for a high energy physics laboratory in northern IL. We employ 2200-2500 people from all over the world, so I'm pretty busy. It's a great place to work. We also have 6800 acres of beautiful natural IL prairie and forest, and all of the beautiful wildlife that goes with it. I love to go out for walks at lunchtime to enjoy all of it. Except in the winter...

I work at Monster.com. I do some behind the scenes stuff that is pretty specific to this company. I love my job because I get to work from home outside on my deck and that gives me a lot more time to spend with my family

You're all going to love what I do. I'm a paralegal. We do foreclosures.
