  • I would do crafty type stuff - I LOVE making stuff.. all sorts of stuff..

    If I knew I could support my family doing it I would quit my job and do it, but you never really know what your income is with something like that, it isn't steady. :-(

  • You know Melissa, I have a friend who owns a daycare. She can afford her house because the extra rooms she keeps them in are considered a business, so they are tax deductible. I don't know if that helps at all, but it might!

    I agree FatGirl, I would totally rock a photography business if it was steady enough. :D Ever check out etsy.com?

  • I wouldn't do it. I like to separate my home life from my work life.

  • I dunno Pnukey, I've always felt that way, but now that I work full time and my husband stays home (it's never been any other way) and my daughter is getting older (she's 18 months) I can't help but feel a little envious. He gets tons of 1-on-1 baby time and he knows all of her favorites, her likes and dislikes... and I only see her for maybe five hours at best before she goes to bed. I feel, especially lately, that an at-home job would be appealing.

    What do you do, may I ask?
