  • Was in Sales for quite a while but now a SAHM..I 'work' with my (f)MIL with filing from time to time.

    FI is an exotics specialist at a Vet right now but we are waiting on a new job in the Bio-Tech field.

    I remember the first thing I said when someone asked me this, mind you I was 6 at the time, but I said, "A Mermaid!" I never really had a goal when I got older, never really knew what I wanted.

    I'm doing it now, staying at home. While its a completely different world than what I was used to, its way more rewarding :)

  • What do you do? I work in Marketing. I market horse care products.

    What does SO do? DH is a graphic designer (which kinda sucks because he is an extremely talented artist, but to get a consistent paycheck, he has to be a graphic designer and get paid like he went to school in a strip mall).

    What did you want to do when you were younger? When I was really young I wanted to be a veterinarian. Then I realized I pass out at the sight of any injuries or blood.

    What is your dream job? I like to think it would be College Track Coach. (I coached high school track in my "spare time" until LO was born. College track is so much better, but you have to be willing to work for free for years to even have a shot at that type of profession.) Or I would like for DH and I to own a business of some kind. Right now I am thinking baby clothes.
