My little taste
231

Today I am getting a little taste of what it would be like if I were to SAH rather than WOH.   I am off work and DH is working.

I am getting  the errands done that I usually do Friday evening/weekends. Really enjoyed doing my grocery shopping when the stores were fairly empty.  In a bit I am going out for lunch with DD3.

I do realize that it is just a small taste.  If I were home full time I would not be doing laundry, grocery shopping or going out for lunch every day and there are some things that I would be doing that I am not today.

My first job was at an ice cream parlor, My job now is in the school, The only common element there is that I like to work in the community not behind some desk or cubicle, Lol. 

My first job was in a record store (where I met my hubby). I did some cashiering but we mainly put things away, cleaned. Kind of like what I do now at home lolololol (nothing really changed there lol).

Stop making sense!  You're doing that math thing again that hurts her head. ;)

That's excellent, Spring.  A true compliment to you.  I've had 2 kinds of jobs in my life ~ at the beach/pool and later in an office.  Talk about extremes!

The differences is that savcal shows and understanding and respect for different types of jobs and companies while your comments are mostly immature attempts at insults in regards to differences.  Some people learn and grow while others do not.

And yet, the comments never appear to have any apprecation or respect for differences in the work place.
