Alright sons of mine. Here is a little insight into good 'ol mom. :-)
Hope you like it boys.
FOUR JOBS I HAVE HAD
Why stop there? I'm going to try to remember them all and in order boys.
Keep in mind, I took time off to homeschool, parent, and breathe between these opportunities. :-)
age 7: drywalled nail heads with my dad (Grandpa Glenn)when he had his own drywall business.
age 13 or 14: I began working as a cook in my parents Italian Restaurants.
age 16-18: I was a desk clerk at a video store.
age 18: I worked as a waitress in an Italian Restaurant in Ohio and also made cusomized license plates at local flea markets and city carnivals on the weekends.
age 18/19 I worked on the weekends at local flea markets making the license plates and during the week as a direct care staff worker in a group home for the developmentally disabled. (all men)
age 20 - 23: desk clerk, receptionist for my father's carpet stores
age 22: Short stint as a Donut Shop owner
age 22: DJ for local AM Christian Radio station
age 24: Youth director (with Brian) for our church (that was fun but we had to move back north)
age 25 - 27: Industrial Relations and Benefits clerk for a major paper mill in Michigan.
age 28: desk clerk, secretary for my parents Hardware Store and Lumber Yard
age 29: Receptionist for the Lewis Co. Ministerial Disaster Relief (scroll down)...during the horrible flooding that happened in our town that year.
age 30: Teacher's aid at my sons' private school
age 31- 32: Had a ball floating around to various companies as a Temp. worker. I was always a receptionist or secretary. I worked for a Large Data company and was asked to come on full time in a managerial position. (nope, I've got kids) I worked for a Steel Sales company and was asked to sign on full time. (Nope, I've got kids) I worked one day at another company that I had no idea what they really did. The employees sat around talking about their marijuana usage and such. I didn't go back to that place.
age 33-34: Through crazy circumstances I won't go into, my parents moved up here during this year. God really knows what He is doing. I was so fortunate to have them live with us that year.
Why? Because I began working full time at a Nursing Home. (receptionist and office clerk) My mom watched the kids. During that year, I had my gallbladder out, my mother had hers out, my father had a quadruple bypass!! God knows when we need our family around us!
age 35 - 38: I've been a full time, stay at home mom. I still work but it's on my terms as a homeschool mom, group(s) founder and really just living the life God has blessed me with.
