Episode Forty Three


Oct 24th


by Bobbi

I am a very bubbly, boisterous, hard-working lady and have been most of my life. After high school, I joined the USAF and did well until I got pregnant and married...yes in that order. Although I don't regret my children, I do regret doing it so early in my life (at 18). After four years, I got out of the Air Force and did go back to school to get my degree. Two jobs, raising children, and dealing with a husband who would not work steady was alot, but I did it. The jobs were anything from Deli work to Retail. One day, I took my resume and walked the Industrial parks and landed a job in shipping. Thirty years later and I am still in shipping only I am the Head Traffic Controller of an Electrical Component Distributor. Yes, I make ok money and benefits, but there are days when I say what am I doing here? This is not what I really wanted to be when I grew up. But here I am. I am grateful, but there are days I long for more...
