    Construction Management / Job Site Supervisor / Monkey Trainer / 3rd rate psychic.

    Most of the time, I yell at people and write Nasty-grams to people that are late, don't show up, or half ass their job.

    In other words, I babysit grown people.

    The long and short of it:
    The sort is that I am a seamstress.
    The long, I design and sew high end clothing (mostly jackets and scarves among others) for a clothing designer. I also run my own (mostly web based) business with my own designs for moms and babies (not clothing). I do some alterations etc. on the side. Mostly I am a stay at home mom (doing my "work" during nap time.) I use my Q for all of it, tracking orders, tracking inventory, etc.
    Funny, I don't feel nearly as busy as I look on paper.

    That sounds interesting. I need to get my big booty in school so I can have something to fall back on if this doesn't work out.

    If you want something to fall back on, Live Sound Reinforcement is where it's at. It's easy to learn about, but hard to do. Music without mercy!

    Wow. I don't think we need to do that, I just need motivation. I am really unmotivated.
