I'm a SAHM for about 7 years now and totally hate it. Loathe it. No offense to other SAHMers, but it just doesn't fit my personality. I used to work in banking, in the account opening and legal section (we've got special banking laws here). Loved that job. Lots of paper and details. My favorite part of work was right before I started. I would go to the nearby cafe and have a coffee with my colleagues. I miss that.
