    What's your Occupation/Study etc?

    I just thought it would be interesting to see how you guys spend your time, when your'e not with the horses. You could be a housewife/husband, be in employment or studying at school. Or maybe your lucky enough to work with horses.

    I work for my husband and father in law. I'm lucky enough to only do Monday to Thurs 9.30am til 1.30pm. But thankfully receive a full time wage. Perks of being married to the boss! Lol. I enjoy my job most of the time, I do all the accounts and book keeping, which unusually keeps my work varied day to day.
    Its a recycling company, we have a fleet of 7 wagons that go around collecting waste cardboard. Paper and wood from various parts of the country.
    I have an hours commute there and hour back each day. I'd love to work from home, which is my plan eventually.... I'm still working on it. But then I probably wouldn't get much work done as I'd be wanting to ride or watch tv etc. Lol.

    How about everyone else?

    I'm a stay at home semi-retired goof off. I worked for the first 12 years of our marriage in communications for Boeing (the ones who make the aircraft) but quit in 2000.

    I've been to Leavenworth once. Not the prison but stayed there when going to a concert at some outdoor place near there in Bonner Springs. We are about 3 hours south and west of there.

    Trained
    I'm a stay at home mom. I have just about a year left to be here... before my little one goes to school. Before this I worked in the office of several car dealerships (warranties, ar/ap, sales(wo)man, financing, ended up office mgr. Then I moved to Missouri, worked in radiology at the local hospital, hated it after 2years then went to work with my brother welding boat props. Got married and had babies lol I don't have a clue where I want to work when I get Eli in school.

    At this point in my life, I am a full time student, wife, mother, home maker, maid, taxi driver, cook, gardener, dog trainer, mechanic, handy- (wo)man, life guard, baby sitter... ... Alright I might of gotten carried away a bit, but you get the idea. Most days I spend tending to my home, my son and my husband, and after all of that is finished, I work on my homework. I am working toward my B.S in Paralegal Studies, I hope to some day work in a nice little law firm making heaps of money After all of that is done, if there is enough time in the day, (there usually isn't) I find time for myself.

    I don't have a whole lot of time for hobbies. I used to LOVE scrap booking, painting, drawing, taking pictures ... But even that has taken a back seat to my studies. The time I get to spend riding is VERY precious to me because it's "MY" time, and no one else's. Riding is so much different than my other hobbies because I make time to do it each week, and after I'm done with school, and my son starts school himself, I hope to devote a much larger portion of my time to riding and all the other joys of horse ownership.
