I am a SAHM. But I used to work as an Employee Relations Specialist for Customs and Border Protection before I had kiddos. One day I plan to go back to school to get my Masters of Social Work degree and work with either military members or in a hospice facility. Smile

I am mostly a SAHM, except that I am still working for my company on Saturdays to help them out until December. I work as a microbiologist for a pharmaceutical company. Its not exactly what I wanted to do with my biology degree (I wanted to do cancer research) but it can be interesting at times. I am happy that I get to be a SAHM even on Saturdays starting in December.

I'm a SAHM. My job is too keep a couple little boys fed, rested, house cleaned, boys entertained, cook meals, and please my husband. Wink Not the easiest job out there but the most rewarding one!

I'm a SAHM, too. I do have a small baking company. Where I make all kinds of desserts and a lot of decorated cakes. It has taken a back seat as this LO seems to have sucked all my motivation and inspiration out of me.

Before I started my own co. and became a SAHM I worked in a very popular bakery here in town and before that I worked in underwriting (I got my BS in business admin/finance).

I am a business and planning officer in the Federal Government....quite repetive but sometimes it can be interesting! I do however sometimes wish that I could be a SAHM because I am having a hard time balancing life between work and home.

I do copy editing/advertising for a mom & pop shop that distributes to car dealerships. I make advertising flyers & company catalogs.

It is very dull & I wish I was doing PR or media relations/journalism, but the economy had other ideas. I was very lucky to get this job & there are many benefits to not working for a large corporation.

I work at the corporate offices for a mid-size broadcast television group. I actually started out working for one of their stations while I lived in Abilene. A few years ago the group began an "eMedia" division, which focuses on web. I work in that division now supporting product design and development for our 35 sites.

The nice thing is that when the time comes that I need to, I can work from home! Wink

I teach/lecture History at a (very) small university. I love the work, but it's sometimes hard to come by, and I never know if I'll be offered more courses the next semester. Sadly, I had to turn down an offer for the fall--the courses end in late December, and I couldn't guarantee that I wouldn't go into labour before everything was finished up. And since I'm currently on summer vacation, I've got nothing to do until the baby comes, so I'm quite bored...

I spend all my husband's money like a good wife should. Lol

I'm a SAHM, which is beneficial in the summer since Things 1 and 2 are home all day (actually, right now they're at the local rec center for drop in time and I need to go pick them up in an hour). During the school year - until I have the Noob, anyways - I just sit around the house and kill time. Sometimes I knit, spin, or weave to pass the time, but I know once Thing 3 comes around I'm going to have no time at all for that, LOL.

Another SAHM mom here Smile I do own a small online business making eye patches for kids with lazy eye, but it does not take up too much of my time. This year has been a crazy one as far as schedule--as ds1 was in full-day 1st grade and dd was in half-day Kindergarten. But I only have 2 more weeks of school and next year they will both be in school full-day. So I'll have some nice time with just my 3 yo at home (he is almost 3) before baby comes.

In a previous life though, I was an early childhood ed teacher Smile Someday I may use my degree again, though I have not kept up on my certification.

I am a SAHM. I homeschool my 6 children, and I also take care of my sister's 3 daughters while she is at work. (she's a single mom). 2 of my sisters 3 children go to the local public school, the other one is too young for school. So I really only have 7 children here on most normal days.

My husband and I also own a Mobile Drug Testing Business, which keeps us on our toes since we get calls at all hours Beee
