Bored, so AMA!

Who watches your kid(s) when you work those long hours?

I worked 3 12-hour night shifts for the first 5 years. My son stayed with my parents then and I slept while he was in school.

After I got married and moved away from my family I started working 8-hour dayshifts. My older son is in school and my little guy is in daycare. I take care on some weekends and 1 holiday a year and make sure to coordinate with DH so he can be home when I'm on call.

Salary?

What state are you in?

Favorite food?

Not salaried. I make around $37/hr

Wisconsin

Either snow crab or watermelon

Dog, two cats, two pythons, and an unknown number of honeybees (I estimate like 75,000?)

Hawaii. We are going in January (first time for the kids and I).

The answer to that question is always no. I'm not naturally a nail polish fan (I'm kind of a picker). I also work in a sterile environment and can't wear it to work.

I like your accent. I used to work with a guy from Wisconsin.

Oh my goodness I couldn't deal with the bees.

Have fun on your trip!

My daughter is 18 and a first year college student. She feels she may want to get into the medical field ( in some capacity) but seems to be thinking nursing because many of her friends are going to nursing school and she thinks she will be bringing in big bucks. Any advise on this?

I'm an LVN, can I work in interventional cardiology?
