    You are grossly underpaid! :laugh: or should I :tear:

    Until I retired I ran an engineering library for a communications/research company.

    From about 1980 until this day I have also been a free-lance back of book indexer.

    What I get paid to do is be a media tech at church. I'm in charge of all visuals that go on the screen (songs, announcements, message notes, etc.) and I also do things like put together slideshows for funerals and stuff. Additionally, I'm paid for my counseling time which seems to be increasing as of late!

    But I also homeschool, which is a full time job but without pay. Then of course there is the wife, housekeeper, manager of the home, etc. :)
