Your Spouse


What does your spouse do for a living?

My spouse is a chef, that is good and bad. Good because I always have good food to eat. Bad because she works wierd hours. Example when do you go out to eat? When you get off work. That means I am siting here on the internet with my 3 yro daughter watching sleeping beauty while the wife is at work.

Works right beside me. Pretty good not having to pay help, but some days, being together 24/7 can sure be trying. We been married 23 years & working together full time for 10 or so.

Re: Your Spouse


My wife cooks our books. We'll be married 38 years if it holds 'till August. Sometimes I have to go "check on the jobs" or " pick up some stuff" 'cause it's safer outside the office. Her probation period has a few more years left so I won't be making any moves until then.

Otherwise she's one of those pinch of this, dash of that cooks that puts out some incredible meals. I'd either starve or have to bunk at Wendy's without her.

Cole, you listen to Shane about that little girl. We had one little boy and all of the sudden he's married and got 3 kids. I swear I won't miss them growing up. I promise.

Good Luck
Dave

My better half is a court appointed special advocate and works for all seasons as a rape/sexual assault responder ( she's there for the victims, helps those who cant help them selves) It's so cool when she helps put the perves away.

I screwed this part up in search of the $. I got some $ but it wasn't worth the losses. You don't get to do it over.

I try to keep mine barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen.

She got laid off last April, and is just being a stay at home mom now.

My spouse is learning to cook. She tries hard. Maybe one day she'll be good.

For work, she is an SEA (special education assistant) at school for the moment but wants to be a teacher.
