Tagged by Mrs Bigun
Well, this is fun. I was just thinking that since I had reached the 100 post mark that it was time for a 100 things about me post, but this is more fun.

Jobs I’ve Held:
Corn detasseling in 7th and 8th grade. One time, my whole bus got fired because a couple guys got in a food fight on the bus and my dad drove me over to the office ad went inside. I was back at work the next day – very cool “papa bear” move.
Little Caesar’s Pizza Pizza, age 16. I was the dough making queen
High school and college summers- lifeguard/swim instructor at Rockport Pool Hands down the coolest job ever.
High school winters – lifeguard for lap swim at Rock County Pool. Worked 5-8 Mon-Thursday. Did my homework while people who knew how to swim did laps. Quite boring actually but the hours were great for a teenager.
College Year 1 – Waitressing Night shift at the Oasis Restaurant (Truck stop) – Yuck.
Waitressing at Perkins – cool job, good money, always smelled like grease and syrup.
Asst DON at Fair Oaks Health care center – first nursing job, totally blew.
Lead RN/Care Plan Coordinator, then DON for Mercy Manor and then Mercy Manor Transition Center- good job, great hours, great people to work with. Being on call all the time and having to deal with sucky stuff, not always so fun.

My sister Michele - who manages everything on her plate with ease and humor
RunAthena - who is a wonderful writer and one of the most interesting people I have met, one of the first people I met in the blog community who made me feel extremely welcome!
Pat in Arizona- who always has something funny and encouraging to say, has an interesting perspective on life
Regina - who is a dedicated cyclist and got married on a tandem bike in vegas which I think is totally cool!
Amended List:
Mike and I chose many of the same people so I am adding people to my list -
Obrats (good guy and big loser - in a good wasy), Erin (doing Ironman Wisconsin next month- hats off), Collin (new triathlete) , and Steve (the next biggest loser and soon to be triathlete!), Come on down! Inquiring minds want to know!

It's always fun to hear about where someone has been and what they have done! You were a busy woman!!

WTH :) What am I supposed to do now?

Pat said...

I worked at perkins too. I even had the chocolate milk bladder explode all over me.

One of my friends sat on a white milk one once - said it looked like a fluffy marshmallow and plopped down on it. I laughed so hard when she sat down and it popped I think I might have peed a little. Still makes me giggle to this day...... It was a fun job, except for all the running around and syrup.

Reginas blog reminded me of an award ...... I lettered in high school in BOYS swim (as the team manager x 3 years)
But not in girls swim.... hmmm weird.

Mike don't forget....

a bag of red sports beans and gatorade don't go well on top of pickles and ham.
