Another frigid day here in Wisconsin and today's high will be -1! Good day to keep inside and keep warm. This week in Debbys Dare the topic is What Did You Want To Be When You Grew Up? Well when I was small I always wanted to be a teacher. I thought having a desk all nice and organized and getting to correct papers was so much fun (I used to be a teachers aide). Before I got out of High School at the age of 16 (Yes I was a whiz kid and skipped a few grades) I changed my mind. First I wanted to join the service but they wouldn't take me at that age so instead I headed to college at the University of Wisconsin in FonduLac. Well after a year of that I realized I wasn't having any fun so I went next door to the Tech College. There I got a secretarial degree but took some fun course while doing it like auto body & welding. After graduation I had some boring & interesting jobs from being a private secretary to working in a radio station where I actually got to do some commercials and the weather. Some of the unique jobs I did were owning & working on a dairy farm, being a foster parent, owning & running a consignment shop, opening a coffee shop and I was an Auxiliary Cop (my kids called me a "rent a cop")! In this job I worked at football games, weddings, parades & outdoor events like Festivals and the beer tent. It was actually quite fun doing crowd control, checking id's or riding along in the squad car. For a short time I thought I wanted a career in that perhaps being a 911 operator but after some deliberation I decided having 4 teen-age sons & that career just didn't go together. But it was a time that I am happy to remember and glad to scrap thanks to Debbys dare.
