What a great way to kick off the week! K, here is a little about me.
I am married to a sweetie of a man, mom to 2 great kids, slave to a couple of big dogs, a grad student (class of 09), and wahm. I’ve worked pretty much in retail & hospitality offline, except for a move into educational support. My time as a tutor helped push me in the right direction, while my last hospitality job nearly put me under.
I spent an entire summer working the 3pm-11pm or midnight shift, and my days generally started at 6:30 am when I’d get up to get my daughter and myself ready for school. Yes, I had classes from 8-noon, had a 3 hour break for studying and stress relief, then went to work. My daughter was 4 at the time and I rarely saw her. It was killing me. One evening I had a disagreement with my boss and decided that was that. I signed on for a work-study as a reading tutor and have been a tutor ever since.
My first official wah job was as a tutor, then I started as a virtual assistant. It brought in ok money, but the freedom in my schedule to spend time with DD and my then boyfriend and his son (hubby & my SS) was awesome. Finding a company to tutor with helped bring in more money, as did opening an onilne store.
But this post isn’t supposed to be about me, really. It’s about MommyFest’s blog party. Join us! Meet other moms – working moms, stay at home moms, younger, older, and everything in between. We all have different stories to share. We won’t bite!
And, if meeting other people wasn’t enough incentive, there are prizes! So, come on over!
