44, single mother of 2 adults (finally) with 1 beautiful grandbaby.
Worked at different jobs over the years; sometimes 2 or 3 jobs at a time just to try to survive on my own. Jobs ranged from transcription, receptionist, billing, x-ray technician, cashier x's 3, baker, cake decorator, nail technician, fish and game access site cleaner (scrubbed toilets and hauled garbage), sales associate/manager x's 2, housekeeping. The jobs I loved the most were the most difficult and physically demanding (baker and fish and game access site cleaner.) When I looked back at everything, that surprised me.
I've always loved driving and alone time. The older I get the more alone time I want and need. Trucks don't care how old I am. I'm still healthy, if a bit more round than I should be. (I'm working on that. Lost 5 lbs in 7 days already. 20 lbs in 3 months gone. Yay!)
My kids don't need me to take care of them and it's time to do what I want.
ALWAYS wanted to learn to drive a truck and go over the road. Kids and 2 ex-husbands put the brakes on that until now. Maybe I can earn a living, see the country, AND make my kids lives easier than I had it.
