I spent the first 25 of my working years in the ministry.
Which meant that I worked, primarily, from our home.
There were meetings and travel,
and church services to orchestrate,
but for the most part we did a large part of our work
right from our living room.
Perfect for those child-raising years.
Little did I realize, that was also perfect for me.
For the past nine years I've worked for a really good friend
who owns a construction company.
When I need to sound like I have some clout to get something done
(at a utility or bank for example)
I call myself the office manager.
I'm just a good, old fashioned "girl-friday" like secretary.
Which works for me.
I pick up the phones, run the errands, try to keep the little pieces from falling through those proverbial cracks
and take good care of the people around me.
I'm very blessed in that I really enjoy the company of my boss and love his whole family.
I just wish I could do the job from my living room.
Turns out, I'm a home-body.
And the 9-5, everyday routine, really isn't my cup of tea.
Off I go.
Eager to use the typewriter that you saw in that first photo.
Yes, you read that right.
That's not an old photo I found on line to edit...
That's our office IBM selectric.
And we use it almost every day!
