LOL...this is gonna sound funny with all your other posts....but....

I'm primarily a stay at home mom (lots of time to surf boards...haha...tha'ts kind of funny....) But I do have my own business...I'm a Pampered Chef lady! :) Basically I sell kitchen tools at in-home parties...and I love it! And I love their message too...which is basically to use and develop our God given talents to bring families around the table. Some time ago, I really struggled with sticking with it because the company was sold and a lot of Christian consultants quit because they didn't agree with the charitable practices of the new owner. I struggled because I felt pressured to quit, but I didn't feel like God was releasing me to do that. So I stayed...and God has blessed ever since...I'm definitely where He wants me... At the moment!

I just joined this group - interesting -

I am retired from AT&T.

Just getting to the point of wanting to be on a web site where I can tell
of the experiences of Jesus worked in my life - and HE can do the
same for YOU!

Mostly, I'm a stay at home mom, who home schools our 8 year old son and generally keeps the house afloat...lol. I do have a home business as a Pampered Chef consultant, which I've done for 6 years now and love. I recently achieved Future Director status, though I'm not sure I want to become a full-fledged Director at this time.

I also volunteer at our church as the senior high Sunday school teacher and a youth leader, both of which I've done for the last 13 years. :)

I have a friend who sells Pampered Chef. My wife was a independant consultant for Mary Kay and Arbonne, before quitting so she could focus on school.

I'm currently working three jobs!

I work full-time as a CSR for Medicare. When I'm there I answer general questions, claims related questions, and I answer letters that beneficiaries send into Medicare.

I work part-time as a manager at Gamestop. I've been there since June, but the pay is really low and I don't get a lot of hours (the store manager and assistant manager split the most of them up). It's a fun place to work, but not really working for me anymore. I'll probably not be there any longer than two more weeks.

I also work part-time as a Barista at Starbucks. I've only been there about a month, but I love the job. I make coffee, talk to people, and enjoy life when I'm there. It's fast-paced work, but it's really enjoyable. I get paid more and I have half of the responsibilities.

Right now I'm working about 65-75 hours a week and it's killing me. But I'll pull through soon enough.
