I don't really have a job per se. I do custom sewing from time to time - window treatments and soft furnishings. Also wedding attire.

Um, don't you home-school seven kids or around that many? I'd call that a pretty demanding job. I sure couldn't do it

That's true but it's only 2 now - the 16 year old and the 5 year old. It seems like such a small class to me now. But you really made me smile for remembering.

That's still two preps, as DH's teacher friends call it

Reading about all of your avocations/interests/jobs is so interesting! Me, I'm an adapted physical education specialist. You get your bachelor's in something like kinesiology (mine was sports medicine), then a single subject regular physical education teaching credential, then if you decide you want to work with kids with disabilities in the public school system (K-12), you usually take a bunch more classes (a master's degree) and get the specialist credential. I also threw in a health science credential, too, since I was already there and all. In my spare time, I cook, garden, read, and play with my grandkids. I'm off for the summer and enjoying every minute of it.

Well, I used to work in a warehouse until I developed severe Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in both of my hands. I had the surgery which worked well except for the fact that I don't have nearly as much strength in my hands as I used to. Needless to say, my job said they wouldn't be able to accomodate me and let me go. I reached a settlement with the insurance company which paid off all of our bills with a little extra.

I did some research on the internet looking for something that I could do from home that wouldn't require any computer skills and I could set my own hours. Great thing is, I believe I've found it. I guess it's being called an inforpreneur. I just built my first website (it's in my signaure) and am fixing to start my second. My goal is to build 10 websites that will each generate between $500 and $1000 monthly. My first site is about 5 months old and has already paid for itself and is beginning to see a little profit. I'm pretty excited!

It's a lot of work but once I get them all done, maintaining them will only take a few hours a week and the rest of the time will be mine!

You can read more about it on my About Me Page
