I am a happily married mother of three and grand-mother of eight. Hubby and I live on 40 wooded acres in the country in Southern Oklahoma and are enjoying every minute of it.I have had several various jobs over the years. My first job was workingan inspector in a manufacturing plant for several years before it shut down. Iworked for the Department of Human Services for many years,which I found very rewarding as well as frustrating. The frustration became overwhelming and I decided to leave. I also worked for a debt settlement company which was also very rewarding.Hubby has retired and I was laid off over a year ago and decided not to go back to work for someone else. We started our own vending machine business and are doing quit well.I wanted to finda way to generate some additional income from hom and stumbled onto HubPages.
