I have been here. Yes, there was a time when I worked so many hours that I was a 'workaholic', but not by choice. It was because I worked at a Cleaning Service, which hired me for part-time, but as my hours increased my benefits did not, so to try to keep my finances together, I ended up working more and more hours, until I finally quit. This is why posting on the economy and jobs are so important to me, If I can save someone from what I went through working for the cleaning service, then I hope it will make amends for all the co-workers over the years who were used and abused, but I was too tired and too pre-occupied with my bills and my family to see what was happening around me. With any luck and a Wing and a Prayer, I can keep people from making the same mistake that I did when I continued to work for Lora Campe and her sister Ethel 'Jane', even after they closed her (Lora's) cleaning service down.

I know I am the low-tech person of the family, which is why I am doing my best to learn my way around this Information Highway. I know I have learned somethings, but there is still much to be learned and that complete mastery is impossible, but that is no excuse not to try.
