About my “job”
I love it when readers interact and ask questions. It makes my day! One of the most common questions I get is about where I work and/or what I do for a living, so I guess this post is long overdue.
A few years back I was an area manager for an indirect dealer for Sprint. I worked with dealers like Best Buy, Radio Shack and independently owned stores. I traveled a lot, worked long hours, and overall I really liked my job. Unfortunately when Sprint & Nextel merged, my job went away.
Mike has always genuinely told me to “do whatever makes you happy.” I am incredibly lucky that he is very supportive of everything I choose to do.
Or not to do in this case, because I never went back to work. Although one summer I worked at Starbucks & another I was a beer girl at a local golf course. Both were a blast!
Mike’s job is fairly dangerous, and it’s a nice luxury for him to know that everything else is taken care of so he can solely focus on his work. From laundry, paying the bills, grocery shopping, taking care of Bam to getting the tires rotated, oil changes and taxes filed. And when Lu visits with us, I take care of her too. <3
I feel like I have the best job in the world! Mike loves that I take care of him and knowing that the bills are paid, doctor appointments are made, his work clothes are clean and dinner is ready when he get’s home. Oh how boy HATES paying bills. Ha!
Being a stay at home…wife also allows me a lot of free time to volunteer at the senior center to take my elderly friends grocery shopping, take Bam to his favorite park, visit my family back home for a few days, blog, run, have lunch & coffee dates, hike and do the things I love. I also have a couple behind-the-scenes projects I’m working on and it’s so much fun. I can’t wait to share them with you guys!
Money isn’t everything to us, we are simple folks that don’t own extravagant things or go on fancy vacations, and we sure don’t try to keep up with The Joneses. You can’t put a price on the feeling of living a happy, fulfilling life.
That old saying about “money can’t buy you happiness” is so true. We are living it!
What is your job?
If you could do anything, what would you do?
What really makes you happy?
