What we do for a living ( to pay for our fun)

O.K., I'm just curious at what we all do for a living. You know, where do we work so we can go out and do the things we all like to do like Rv'ing. Since I'm starting this thread I'll go first!
I'm a Frisco ISD school bus driver. Been driving for them for almost four years now. I like (not love cause you can only love your family in my opinion) my job a lot because I get to take my 3yr old daughter w/ me. 2.) I have the best office window and get to see the sunrise almost every morning!! And yes, this is a special needs bus!

My office!!

WORK is a four letter word!!! I am retired, happy, and POOR.

In my other life, I was an autoshop owner and mechanic.

I retired after teaching 29 years of middle school kids but went to work in another district the very next day at an elementary school as a computer/library teacher. After 11 years of that it will all come to an end this June. I've got lots to keep me busy working on my house and motorhome. Hope retirement pay is enough to pay the bills and buy whatever gas is going to be. My wife retired from teaching middle school, too.

We started RVing after I retired in '98 (computer programmer) and my wife was at the end of her career (dental assistant). We live off SS, some savings and the rental income from our house.

My wife and I were both in law enforcement back in the day...we decided to make a career change, so I went into radio and she worked for a university...we are now in "pre-retirement" mode. We are security contractors working from our RV guarding gates for petroleum drilling companies. See the link in my signature to our blog for more info.

My husband and I own a fundraising and management consulting business for nonprofit organizations, still working full time. We hope to retire in about 4 years and hit the road in our new Outlook.
