What does everyone do for a living?

I was just wondering what everyone does for a living.

I am a student and part time IT consultant.

Not much. I'm retired.

I was a full-time caregiver for my grandson but since his dad lost his job the first of the year, I don't even do that.

Full time caregiver to my 83 year old mother with dementia. Ocassionally I dabble in photography, mainly shooting weddings on the beach.
Finally things have started clicking for me, my knees, my elbows, my back, etc...

My husband "retired" from the military about 15 years ago. Because we decided to be child-less-by-choice, we could afford to really retire early (most military people couldn't in a million years live on their "retirement" pension). So we've had few paying jobs over the last decade or so. We do some civic stuff. When I did work, I worked in administrative positions, mostly for the government.
