    By Choice

    I danced for 3 years and it was the first time I did one job consistently (at the time).  I loved the freedom to work on the days I wanted to or not work at all.  And I wasn't the girl who was paying her way through college or suffering some sort of hardship.  I...

    Yep I danced. But it wasn't that exoctic. I wasn't a ********.. Just a topless dancer. That was an unusal time in my life and with two kids small at home it was a good way to earn enough to support us all. My hubs at the time didn't work, at least not all the time. It took me a...
