My dw has been a rn for 20 years and just recently
Is managing a dialysis unit.
my history is much more complicated
case ih mechanic 5 years.
Automotive and ag parts manager for 10 years
truck driver and mechanic for 22 years.

My current job of 10 years for a roofing company has allowed me to do
many many jobs within the company.
Head mechanic
truck driver
Back hoe operator
38 ton crane operator
in short I service the companies needs in everyway but actual roofing.

And I have my own pt mechanical shop at home.

Hmmm - I'm in the process of commissioning the solar electric system on the new building 112. I suspect you may be on the same facility?

My grandfather owned an implement yard in the middle of Nebraska for many years. They sold IH. Until they dropped a tractor off a flatbed and squished him real good. He decided running a hardware store would be less dangerous.

I'm an electronic engineer by education, but now I'm a general manager for a small government contractor in the electronic prototyping field.

DW: elementary school teacher

If things go well by the time we turn 55 we could retire and live off of rental property income. Not lavishly, but comfortable.

Great thread! Definatley a nice way of getting to know someone. Gives you an idea of everybody's personality when they post something.
I am an E.F.D.A. (expanded function dental assistant). Basically I do everything that a dentist does without the all the headaches behind it. Hubby is union mechanic for a national can manufacturer. We have two children, one is going into his sophomore year of college and the other is going into 7th grade.

I have this mentality, that you go to work everyday. More work means more money. And it has worked well for me. .
We have a plan also, at age 38 with the exception of our $300 monthly mortgage payment (with only 5 years left) we were debt free. Even with 2 kids that are in to every imaginable sport and activity. (including violin) Now in the next couple months I turn (cough cough) 40 and have decided to take on some small debt with our purchase of our new fiver. We have paid half in cash and finance the rest with very small interest. Our son will be able to finish his sophomore year without any debt also. My point of this is that you don't have to make a lot of money to be able to do it. Good work ethics, smart decisions and living below your means will get you there too. Glad too know that I'm not the only one with this way of thinking.

Me: I worked 12 years as a firefighter/paramedic in the Chicago area before tiring of the cold winter. For the last 12 years (since moving to AZ), I've worked as a police officer/detective. Been working sex crimes for awhile now, and look forward to leaving the PD in a few years. I'm not sure what I'll do next, but my fun meter is pegged regarding working in public safety. I do feel I'm uniquely qualified to be a WalMart greeter, so maybe that will be my next career.

Wife: prosecutor (homicide bureau)
