Since the Pandemic started, a lot of people are now working from the comforts of their own homes. This has been a game changer. It saves on long commutes, people are able to spend more time with their families and it’s a very convenient and ideal work environment. 

Most Military families have to relocate every 2-5 years. Sometimes that means you have to leave your job and find one at your new duty station. Work from home jobs can be transferred to other states. Of course your not guaranteed to transferred your job just because it\"s work from home. There is still a high possibility that you could depending on which state your moving to. Most of the work from home jobs I\"ve seen do not offer employment to people that live in California but I\"ve also saw some jobs list that they will hire a military spouse in California if the Service Members home of record is one of the states that they hire in.

I’ve gathered a small list of companies that are always hiring for work from home positions. I’ve worked at one of these companies in the past and really enjoyed the work schedule, the pay and the relaxed job responsibilities. Some of these companies have open availability for call center positions on a regular basis. You can apply for jobs that are phone based and jobs that are email and chat based. 

If your like myself and prefer a job that does not require you to be on the phone all day then only apply for positions that interest you. Not all positions are call center/customer service positions. Do your research and apply for jobs that your interested in.

I will only link the companies career website and not actual positions. You will have to search to see which positions are available. I do recommend that you type in remote as one of the search options to narrow down the search on some of these websites.

Some of the positions have specific locations that they hire in. Some positions will only specify the locations that they are NOT hiring in. So if you live in Florida and the remote position says it’s based In Oregon but they do not hire in California, Alaska and Hawaii, then you can apply because your state would be one that they are willing to hire in.

Do not just assume you don’t qualify because the position says it’s based in Oregon. You do not need to live in the state that the position is advertised for, UNLESS the job post specified that they are only hiring local employees. Since these are virtual positions, most employers are flexible when it comes to your location. Some employers only hire locally because they want you to be able to come pick your computer equipment up. Most companies will ship the computer equipment to you.

If you have any questions on how to apply, leave a comment and I will answer.

I have been using the Target App for years but this past year I\"ve been using their drive up service. Curbside pickup has become the new thing due to the current Pandemic but the stores should have always offered this service. When you have a child that\"s in a car seat or even multiple small children,  it\"s a hassle to get out of the car to grab one or two items. It\"s so convenient when i can just jump in the car and run down the street to pickup my items really quick. No long lines, no contact and no waiting.  

I\"ve purchased a variety of items from Target Drive Up such as furniture (yes, I\"ve purchased a chair, table, lamps and a dresser), clothes, personal hygiene items, snacks, fresh fruit, vegetables and meat. There\"s no minimum purchase required and if the item is no longer in stock when they get your order ready, then you will be refunded for that item. The items are guaranteed to be ready within 2 hours. Its typically ready sooner than that. 

You drive up, park in the designated Drive Up area that is marked with large signs. Then and the app notifies the store that you are outside. You can then select what type of car you are in and what color the car is. They will bring your order to the car and hand it to you, place it in the backseat or in the trunk. Whichever works best for you. It\"s so convenient and I use it at least twice a week. I also tell everyone else about it. They need to offer a referral program like Walmart does. LOL

The Pandemic has had a lot of us stuck in the house. My family enjoys being outdoor while keeping our distance from others. What better place to go than the local Zoo. It's outside and there's a ton of space. Some Zoos allow you to bring your own food and drinks as well. Jacksonville Zoo is one of them. This is a plus because it saves money and it's one less person to interact with.

The Jacksonville zoo has some great exhibits. We are members and we go at least once a month. The membership for a family was $145 plus they gave a military discount a well. I do not recall how much that was. Maybe about $10 off. Due to social distancing, you have to Make a reservation in advance. You can do this online or you can do it when you arrive at the zoo as well. Online would be faster and it would guarantee your admittance to the zoo. If you wait till you get to the zoo, they could be at capacity.

During this visit we decided to purchase the total experience wristband for $8 per person. It includes 4d Theater, unlimited train, unlimited carousel rides and animal feedings. 

Due to staffing, the train ride was departing every 30 minutes instead of every 15 minutes. My son loves the narrated train ride. They left every other row of seats empty and cleaned the rows that were sat in after people exited the train. It takes an extra few minutes but it's worth the wait. They are trying to keep everything sanitized and they did a great job at that.

We decided to only feed one animal and it was the Giraffe. Luckily the zoo was empty and there was literally no line so we were able to enjoy feeding the giraffes while learning about them as well. This was a one of a kind experience.
