DH did 28 yrs with the NYPD (23 yrs was with the Transit Police until the merge). He works p/t now with Enterprise. I've had a few different jobs in the past...medical assistant, 911 operator/police dispatcher in NYC & customer service for a long distance provider. Then my son was born & I stayed home to raise him & take care of my elderly mom. During that time, I did direct sales, worked at my son's school as a lunch/recess aid & an emergency service dispatcher in Putnam county. I also volunteered for 7 seasons at Yankee Stadium as a non-profit vendor selling souvenirs (the money went to my son's school).

I do have a home-business that I'm trying to establish here (I sell all-natural food mixes, blends & grapeseed oil through home tastings & internet sales). I've even thought about going back to school for my certification for medical assisting.

I have been job hunting &, after many resumes, applications & interviews over the past 6 mths, I finally got a job last week. I'll be working for the Charlotte Knights as one of the non-profit concession managers there. I get to be on the other side of the counter now. It should be alot of fun & busy work. YEAH.

I've had a long and varied career as an executive assistant (worked for court-reporting agency, CMPD Crime Lab director, environmental engineers, French-owned manufacturer in sales/marketing/exporting, last 10 years full-time with Fortune 500 consumer sales). Thirteen years ago, my "surprise package" baby came along (at age 39). Intended to just stay home long enough to get her to school, but found that I also enjoyed putting my skills and talents to work for my family and community (school volunteer, soccer mom, girl scout leader, church leader, precinct worker). Currently, I work as a seasonal temp for the Board of Elections part-time. And, lately, I refer to my "job" as medical transport, having found myself in the "sandwich generation" now looking after my parents and a sister recently diagnosed with breast cancer. My oldest kid will be married next summer, my middle kid will start her student teaching next fall, and my "baby" starts high school next fall. Some days I wonder where all the time went. Mentally, I'm having to adjust my reality to the fact that I'm now "middle aged." How did this happen?

Bank auditor here, credit and IT. Have made a carreer of it I guess. Transferring to CLT to work with the large bank regulators in my pursuits of getting to the top of the game. Going from community banks to the largest bank in the country will be a welcome challenge.

Great thread! Neat knowing who is out there.

Default in the mix

I am a SAHW for now and enjoying it. I worked at a very large PR firm for a few years then owned my own wedding planning business for 5 yrs. along with an e-commerce biz for couture wedding accessories like $1200 aisle runners. We made everything and I handled the sales, buying, marketing and labor nationally and internationally.

I also am a psychotherapist as well which someday I will go back to.
