  • Probaly scams...maybe get an overnight job--one of you...that way one parent is home w/ your daughter. Sucks but you have to what you have to do sometimes. Maybe you could move in with his parents and save up $ ?

  • we can't live with his parents. we already asked them if we could stay with them temporarily cause we couldn't pay rent this month but they have no room cause they have 4 young daughters so they just offered to pay out rent....even though they aren't in any financial state to do that. i don't want to ask them for help agan and i want to pay them back asap cause they've been so good to us

  • Hey I love what I do however it is a home business so might not work out for you in your current situation but you are more than welcome to ask me any questions or check Ameriplan out. It will really build nicely for you guys so I would seriously suggest looking at it as maybe something you could start just p/t while working another job untill you are more financially stable. is a great place to look for "jobs" if that is the route you are wanting to go.

    I have been in your shoes so I know how hard it is, my hubby's parents have helped us out sooooo many times. It feels great when you get to the point you can start paying them back :-)

  • Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely?
    You can search for jobs that match you skill set and have a telecommute option.
    If you have a computer with high speed internet & Microsoft Office Pro & have at least intermediate MS Office skills, you should be able to find work as a virtual assistant (VA). For more information, go to,, ..
    Do you have a skill or experience that you can turn into a home based business? I have a friend who makes children's hair accessories in her basement & sells them to boutiques around the Midwest. My husband runs a handyman business from our home. I work from home with two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization, I also do career and job search coaching

  • My business is AVON I say mine because I am my own boss, Avon supplies the merchandise and I run it however I like. I do make money and all it took was $10 to start at first I was not sure if it would work out for me but it has been wonderful, by that I mean I call all the shots, I decide how and when to work this is especially important to me since I got a baby and a toddler at home so I need the flexablity which Avon gives me. Another great thing is that everyone know Avon and it is so affordable you have items from .59 and up so you know you will always have customers ordering. If you have never seen an Avon book or visited a site feel free to visit my website at and you be the judge and if you are intersted in knowing more just contact me
