    I was thinking that we would put down our occupation But we would read to see if anyone else had the same occupation. So in the end we should know how many - ie: 23 nurses, 25 teachers.

    I will start I am a Fraud Investigator -1

    Well, I was a project manager for an LED Lighting Mfg. Then I got sick so now I am disabled. (I hate saying that word, disabled) But here is the cool part, my 14 year old daughter has diabates- long story short, right after I had to stop working she had an issue where her blood sugar went super low. (under 30) she almost died. Had I been at work my Kaila wouldn't be here today. So my new job is to be the best Mom I can to Kaila and help her along. I really know that everything happens for a reason!

    I always thought that would be so much fun, being on the road, seeing lots of new places. We had friends who did that for a bunch of years, saved all the money they could while on the road, and retired early. I am retired, was an Exec. Assistant for a major corporation for 31 years. Loving retirement - get up when I want to, go to bed when I want to, and no one to answer to but hubby and my Gracie-girl!

    Worked my way up through accounting department until I became an accounting manager in construction and homeowner management businesses. Then we moved to Montana and I decided I no longer needed the stress so I am working as a senior accounting associate for a medical research company. Happy here!!
