Just never knew it!
I called it unworking years ago, but the term "unjobbing" is much better. Although I have occasionally had a job over the years, the huge majority of my life has been more free-form. I have raised and trained baby parrots, sewed custom motorcycle racing leathers, owned and ran a Personal Care Home for elderly & disabled residents, been a therapeutic level foster parent, made & sold baby clothes on the craft fair circuit, done massage, tattooing, and I don't remember what all else. In addition to raising a few kids! I lived on a sailboat in the Caribbean for nearly 5 years, with almost no cash income at all. These days, I tutor English as a Second Language to adults, do respite care for special needs kids, I am an advocate for families with kids with mental health issues, and I still have 2 teens at home. I usually have at least 2 or 3 projects going at a time. I don't ever make an awful lot of money, but then I don't need too much, either!
I am looking forward to hanging out here and meeting like-minded mamas, comparing notes, and sharing ideas.
