Today’s questions are –
6. Where have you worked?
7. Has your life gone the way you expected it?
I have mostly worked as a stay at home mom but I have had a few outside of the home jobs.
My very first job, other than babysitting, was at Subway. I hated it. I came home smelling of food everyday. The dogs in the neighborhood would follow me up the driveway! LOL
I also worked at a place that made cassette tapes and CDs. CDs were still fairly new so I mostly worked on the cassette tape assembly line.
I worked at Dollar General for a whole day. LOL The Hubby didn’t like the hours they had given me so I quit. When I went in to interview they said I would only have to work one day on the weekends and every other holiday. Well, they had me working both Saturday AND Sunday AND the 4th of July all in the same week.
My last outside the home job was at a place that made metal fans and metal racks for stoves and refrigerators. I learned how to use a spot welder. It was an OK job and paid fairly well, but I missed my kids soooo much.
After that I stuck to in-home child care until we moved to VA. After I started homeschooling I didn’t really have the time to babysit anymore. Although, people always asked…. Oh, you stay at home all day, you must have plenty of time to watch my kids, too!
The next question is a little harder to answer…. I got married at 18 and had my first child by 19. Then by 21 and 22 I had had 2 more children. LOL I certainly didn’t plan to have 3 so quickly but I wouldn’t change it for the world. We never planned on having 5 kids but again, I wouldn’t change it ever!!!!! If money wasn’t an issue we probably would have had at least one more child. LOL So I guess you could say that even though we didn’t plan our lives, God did and I am perfectly content to be where we are. God knows best and we follow where He leads. Even through trials and tribulations, He is there for us, guiding us and comforting us. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Did I do things in my past that I am not proud of? Sure, hasn’t everyone? But I have a great, big God and His forgiveness covers all. The blood of my savior washed me cleaned!
Kind of a short one today.
But I have to add that I am feeling better so I have a long day of further unpacking to do. Yippee…. I am so excited… LOL I swear, the kids’ books are going to be the death of me! LOL
