Going back to work.......

How many SAHM's found themselves reluctantly going back into the work force due to the current economy? I wanted so badly to be at home raising my babies but I am going back to work because we need the money, I guess you gotta do what you gotta do............

  • Three days a week, housekeeping in a nursing home. It's easier to do if your dh stays home with the kids, if that's possible. We got opposite shifts so it's hard on the relationship, but I think job loss always is If we had t ohire a sitter it would neg my income and I would be anervous wreck lol

  • Some days I wish I could go back to work to have some adult conversation! :) I am with a great company though and make great money with it and am able to stay home. If you are interested I would love to chat with you more about it. It is Gold Canyon Candles. I have been with the company since Oct 2008 and love it. Right now is a great time to start with gold canyon because you can earn your kit for FREE!! Feel free to check out my website to see all our great products. Hope you have a great week. ~Tara

  • As soon as I can find an evening job, I'm going to have to go back to work. These days it's really rough and we can't afford a sitter so he will work days and I'll work nights, or evenings.

  • That was me last August. I hated going back to work. We are unexpectedly pregnant again so I am quitting this July because we can't afford 3 in daycare, even with them there part time and getting a discount because that is where I work. It almost saves us money with 3 for me to stay home instead of paying for childcare. I am hoping that maybe come January to find another child or two to watch to bring in some income. Good luck to you, I know how hard it can be!

  • Now you can do both!! Have you ever thought about becoming a Pure Romance consultant? It allows me to be home with the kids and have "me" time as well. I average between $200-$400 for every party I do and I hold about 3-6 parties a week. If you're interested in empowering women about their bodies while making money, please let me know.
