What do you do for a living?

As of today I just got a job at a local store. It's a small food store with gourmet food and is always busy so I shouldn't get bored.

As of a couple weeks ago I've been working at McDonalds so that having horses isn't such a strain on us. I was a stay at home mom. I actually really do not like working at McDonalds.

I work at the stable I keep my mare at. I've been working there since I was 12, and I'm about to turn 20 in December! I just can't seem to leave!

Aaaand I will occasionally help my old manager clean beach houses. Fun, fun. :roll:

My fiance and I work at a Saddlebred barn. =) We live on site and are the first ones there in the morning. We feed, clean stalls, tack horses up for lessons, hand walk, turn out, and basically do whatever needs to be done 6 days a week, 10 hours a day. In the not-so-distant future, I hope to become one of their trainers/lesson teachers.

I'm a mummy to a 2yr old and a nearly 3 month old. Going back to work next week - I work with Standardbred racehorses.
Hope to have a career change soon. In training to be a doula, childbirth educator and lactation consultant. I love babies and birth!

I am a Manufacturing Technician at Medical Device Manufacturing Company. I get fix equipment, work on process improvements, assist in "lean" culture projects, and evaluate scrap issues all while making the FDA (and other countries quality systems) happy with the boat loads of paperwork.

I own and operate a hair styling salon.

Well jobs are hard to come by(the economy and also I have epilepsy and I don't drive cause of it) although I have gone to school twice!
So right now I take care of my friends horses and clean stalls while my husband makes most of the money. I hope to be a stable hand one day or work at an animal shelter...sad job but rewarding also
