March 12 — Working girl: Did your mother or grandmother work outside the home? What did she do? Describe her occupation.
Mom stayed home.
Her mom stayed home.
For a time period, she did work at cleaning houses. She named me after one of the women whose home she cleaned - Peggy Sternbaum.
She also worked for awhile in the cafeteria of my grade school. I was always secretly excited when I would see her working, for it was a part-time job. She worked when she was called in. It always bothered her to see the amount of food wasted.

Mom was always at home when I was at home. She was there to get me off to school in the mornings, and was there when I returned afterward. She kept the home running, just like her own mother had done.
