SAHM. My husband is deployed, so I'm holding down the fort and keeping the home fires burning, preferrably under something tasty.

I volunteer, too. I'm a mentor for a program called COMPASS (navy spouse 101), an Ombudsman, and I'm pretty busy in my church. I seem to be the one called to do the food when someone needs to be cooked for, if they have special food needs, and for the singles' and servicemen's lunch we do once a month.

My two kiddos keep me busy, too.

But...how do you really feel?

In answer to the question, I do several things. One - own a small antique shop that also includes furniture restoration and interior design (me). Also am a free-lance writer and am self-syndicated.

ha ha Katie, I did furniture restoration when I was a teenager in my uncles' shop. I was the 'stripper'........taking the finish off wood in a stripping tank. ha Those fumes could almost make me high. It was a fun job.
Now I do IT procurement, AP, helpdesk and Sox security officer. I need a new job. ~Bliss

Yeah, blissful. We don't use a tank. Too hard on the furniture, especially the glue joints. Buck used to do the stripping just off the front porch at the house. Folks would call the shop asking for him and I would tell them he was on the front porch "stripping." Some got it, others were clueless.

I am a paralegal and my specialty is complex litigation. I could tell you more about it, but you'd probably fall asleep.
