    Working as an LPN on the Trauma Unit, MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland, Oh, and coming to terms with the fact that nursing just wasn't what I wanted to do with the rest of my life.
    Also recovering from the infection and removal of my right kidney.
    By the end of the year, I knew that some form of driving was what I wanted to do, though I hadn't thought of getting a CDL A just yet - it took a couple years of local driving gigs to persuade me that driving a truck was where my heart was.
    I haven't changed my mind yet. (Like SusieQ, don't miss the t/t, though). ;)

    Working as a professional land use planning consultant and trying to convince local politicians that the model for automotive recycling was not having a lot of junk cars spread out over acres, but neatly warehoused quarter panels, guaranteed recycled parts, etc.
