Default Hello!

I am not a stay at home dad by choice. Have been looking for work for a while now. Trying to get out of retail after 24 years is like getting out of the mafia. But here I am with my boys 6 and 10. Being laid off has been a blessing. I missed a bunch while reaching for that brass ring. I recently started a blog thatdarneddad.com. The FB page is over at https://www.facebook.com/thatdarneddad. Swing over and like the page. I'm glad to be a part of your forum, and look forward to getting to know all of you!

Hi and welcome.

How hard is it to get sacked from retail before the busiest part of retail season after 24 years in the industry? Did you work for Blockbuster?

Welcome! I was in retail before deciding to leave the field...THEN I found out my wife was pregnant, but hated retail so much I never went back. Here I am 10 years later and not regretting it one bit!!!

Welcome again!

Howdy and welcome!

To be honest I'm more a fan of a forum like this than blogs. A more equal footing conversation. Post some of your stories and adventures on here and more from the site will see it I'll bet.
