I no longer work and am a lady of leisure!
I was a stay at home for 18 years until both my kids were out of high school. My husband was career Navy and they needed someone at home, I thought. Financially, it was horrible, but the kids had a stable life that way, at least. I went to college for the first time at 38 years old, did 2 years of my therapy degree, found out I would really need to continue through my doctorate to do what I wanted and decided
So, I worked with the developmentally disabled for several years, got burned out, worked as a file manager for a law firm for 7 years and really liked that. When we moved, I did a 1 year stint in an office and though I liked it, I hated the office manager and quit a week before she got fired! (I always was a day late!
) So, I now stay at home with my pets and knit and enjoy my old age years. My husband has an excellent paying job, enough so he can take me to Vegas every year so I am happy. It leaves me time to enjoy my grandbabies!
