    I wish I was a SAHM but unfortunately we cannot afford that right now. My DH and I both work in IT. I am a helpdesk manager and I also manage our Blackberry Server and devices for our entire company both in the US and International. I know..BORING right? LOL

    I always wanted to be a teacher or a nurse. I took the state PRAXIS test this summer for Elementary Education (K-5) and passed but right not we cannot afford for me to switch careers. Sadly it would be a large pay cut. Teachers should be the highest paid considering what they do!!!

    Anyway...for those of you who work what do you do?

    I'm a CAD modeler/designer at a very well known faucet company. I LOVE my job! I would only ever leave if they made me, or if I had the option to be a SAHM/WAHM.
