|This was the back of our rented minivan when we left.|
We needed lots of "stuff" for the six of us for the week-long trip.
One of the women was talking about how much she hated her job. The other one was talking about how she was looking forward to retiring. I kept my mouth shut (feeling a bit guilty?) and simply reflected on my job... 'cause I retired and then went back to work.

"missing" when the picture was taken.
I love my job that much.
Now, if you're thinking that I'm in some saccharine-sweet dreamland, you'd be wrong. I've had teaching jobs where I loved my students and colleagues, but would poke pins into principal voodoo dolls every night. I've had serious struggles with occasional students. I've been driven to drink (chocolate milk) because of a few parents. But the everyday work?
That I adore.
And I'm wondering how many other people love their job... Am I in the minority? I imagine I am. I imagine most people hate the work they do, or at least they dislike it for the most part.
So my questions are: Do you love your job or do you hate it? If you're retired, what is the best part, and do you miss any part of your former job? If you aren't crazy about your job, what would be your dream job?
