Easy-Like A Sunday Morning

EASY -- Like Sunday morning! FROM:


Here's my question of the week.  Answer it in your journal and come back here and leave me a link in the comments.  I'll post your links next weekend and we'll start over again next Sunday.

Tell me.....

When you were growing up, what did you want to be as an adult and is that what you are doing now or did your ambitions change?

Whenever we had Career Day at high school I would visit the following career booths;

1. U S Airforce-I thought it would be great to be an aerial photographer.  Well, I love to take pictures but I don't really like to fly...so it's a good thing I didn't choose that career.

2. Telephone operator-that I did...the first four years out of high school.  I started in July of 1960 and that was back in the days of the old cord switchboards, working split shifts and every holiday.  I should have stayed there...by now I'd be retired.

3. Nursing-my mom was a registered  nurse and I know that's what she wanted for me.  I could have gone to nursing school but I was really sick of school by the time I graduated from high school.  I have however, worked in clerical positions at a hospital for over 24 years.

The job I wanted more than anything (and they didn't have a booth on Career Day) was being a wife and a mother.  Since I'm divorced I guess I really didn't do well as a wife and I think the jury is still out on my mothering.

I alwasy wanted to be a vet and that meant doing sciences at school.  My dad would have none of it and insisted they were not proper subjects for a girl and decided I would do shorthand/typing instead.  So my dream was never realized.

Wow, you had a lot of ambitions!  I was sick of school when I finished 12th grade too.  Took a long time for me to go back.

Just dropped in to wish you well on this day of thanks!  I'll be back...

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with those you love.
