four ten hour days FTW. I wish I still had them hours, but ever since getting the office position, its a straight 9-5. Still not bad, but its nice to have that extra day.

Selecting can be workout but they pay is usually pretty good! I used to work at the PannTraffic warehouse and they had some selectors making 100K a year. They been there 25 years though.

See I wish I could find a job like that so I can spend all afternoon with my daughter during the summer months when she'* out of school. I miss so much quality time with her. But being a single mom, I gotta do what I gotta do. But congrats on the new job!
