It's so great that you found a job you love and it fits your life so very well.

You write very well of the benefits of a job that is perfect for YOU!

I just picked up a part-time volunteer gig for the rest of July. And while I'm [possibly, maybe, perhaps] looking for a part-time job this next school year, I am very limited in what sort of job I can even consider. With my kids' ages, it would need to follow the school calendar. Plus, I have really enjoyed being able to spend time with my husband without the kids!
However, the siren call of being valued in a different way, with financial benefits, is beginning to be heard over here.


Hear hear! I'm so glad to have a job, even though I have an elementary school age child. I sort of wish I had more time to hang out in the summer, but...

Also, I can (and do) wear jeans to work almost every day.

I kind of have it both ways -- I work outside the home, my office just happens to be at home. It's a little tricky sometimes. But I'm lucky.


Yep, I get it. I worked full-time for 25 years but quit to go back to college this past January. I was fortunate to be able to concentrate on school for the first semester without having to work. Lots of measurable goals, of course, but a whole 'nother world from working. This summer I am interning with the Girl Scouts and I was surprised at how delighted I was to be back in an office setting.

It has been such a joy for me to witness this transition with you. I know you love it...and you are thankful for having had the opportunity to wear all those hats!


While I was ready to give up the SAHM position, I have not found ideal work as you have. My current position allows very casual dress, but I agree that working with the guys has certainly made things interesting!


To have a job that you really enjoy just makes life so much easier. Hope the Grown Up Peeps find this out soon, and possibly in San Diego!

etting parents out of bed at 2:00 AM wouldn't straighten out every problem teenager but it would straighten out a lot of them. The world has changed. In my youth a local cop could be sure he'd not get in trouble for forcing a teen to go home or for taking the child home because we all know that is in the child's best interest. In today's world, without a curfew in place, doing so would cost a cop his job. A curfew is a tool that would give police and parents more powers to protect children.

After all, while they may be as big as adults and want us to treat them as adults, we all know they are all still children and still make childish decisions. If Greensboro values our children then some sort of curfew is in order. Details will need to be worked out. I'm not saying it should be a crime, just that police should have the
