  • i am in the same postition, but it's better than nothing. plus i absolutely love the job. not necessarily most of my co-workers and i have crap pay, but the job is awesome. i'm a childrens photographer and there is nothing else that makes me happier than knowing that i am capturing those moments forever. it makes me so happy to capture the individual personalities and also to watch kids grow up when they come back month to month for their photos. some of those kids are like my kids away from home and i wouldn't give it up for anything!

  • Whatever is best for my family as a hole. I, in fact, just quit my job, because even though I love my job and co-workers it's not earning my family the income we need. So I am going back to a job I hate in order to do what is best for us as a whole. My new/old job will work around my DH's work schedule and save us on Gas money because I can walk. Plus it's guaranteed hours. My "current" job will not work around my DH's schedule and will require that we get both a second car and a sitter, plus it's an "on call" position rather than a set schedule. What's best for my family is that I go back to a job I hate, at least temporarily until my business is on it's feet 100% and I can quit working all together...
