I have had lots of jobs over the years. Of course you know about the punkins and fireworks, but I also do a few other things. I am a substitute teacher and have been for over 20 years. Right out of college for a few years I coached and subbed and then from 1994 to 2000 I sold cars for my in-laws right where I live. I still have people tell me they bought a car from me or even see a few Solsma Auto Sales stickers on the trunk of a vehicle. I started subbing again in 2000 and have ever since.
I also help a friend occasionally cutting out leather and hide pieces for show awards. it is fun work seeing all the creative things she comes up with and the one down side is I am covered in hair by the end of the day!
I also am the substitute church secretary and will be working a lot soon as there is a baby due today!
I will help deliver Beck's Seed when (if? it's been a long winter, right?) planting starts and be a general go-pher.
So I have a varied schedule that is really nice. I'm glad I have that flexibility as my Dad's acreage is selling in two weeks. The last time I moved was 22 years ago so I had forgotten how much work it is to get a place cleaned out. My parents lived there for over 50 years and now that my mom is gone it was just too much for my dad to manage.
My sisters and I have gone through every cupboard and nook and cranny. We reminisced over pictures and prom dresses packed away in boxes. It's a little surreal seeing the house stripped of our memories but I'm glad to know someone else will be able to make wonderful new ones there. I always refer to my Dad as the Great White Hunter and as you can see, there was a reason for it. I hope the new owner either has a lot of hats or likes hunting, or both, because these antlers are staying!
