    …but, but they barred me from the beauty department…just too darn ugly for ’em…couldn’t begin to help, they said…clothes…just don’t make them that big…sent me to camping supplies to check out the tents…or else they said, the blanket section might do. So confusing…………sure am glad you are going to HELP…they might listen to you.

    Yep, was a “dirty ole steel hauler” in Florida (a four state area) for a few years, 1st woman driver the branch had, third for the company…than in Ohio, pulled all kind of stuff on a flatbed cross-country(1st for that company too, both semi tractor trailer) for a few more years…drove an ice truck some, and a service truck off and on (both them just single box. Have driven in around 40 of the states. Loved the driving, that’s for sure! Nothin’ liked getting paid to see the country.

    Guess you could say I have been a lot of different things…a lot of different interests & schooling/training.

    Driving trucks
    Cooking
    Industrial Sewing
    Typesetting/design/office
    Activity Director in Long Term Care

    Been there, done that.

    Truthfully, a lot of them were boring too. Guess that was mainly why I was always looking for something I’d like better.

    Our most important JOB was being a momma! No way that was ever boring!!!!!!!!!

    Got to admit WE made it through that…even done a job WE can forever be proud of!!

    Be proud of all you have done…even the mistakes, if you learned something by them!!!!!

    You’re right…that’s one of the FEW things I’ve succeeded at…

    I imagine there are a lot of things you have accomplished…many to be proud of!

    There were many ups and downs in most of the things I have done. The driving and cooking are probably my favorite.

    Only a few that I really enjoyed…many I disagreed with the way things were, or weren’t done…a lot of “downsizing” that equaled being trained in other areas.

    I was lucky–or unlucky which ever way you’d think of it.

    When I was a divorced-widowed, single mother I was the only one I could count on to make ends meet. I HAD to learn a lot of different things.
