I have a great oppurtunity to futher my job but it means I will be home less. I will get a higher income so I will be able to contribute to the bills.

I think you will have to weigh in the pros and cons of taking the position, you and hubby should discuss the benefits of the job as well as the negatives, if one outweighs the other then I would go with that...sometimes the money doesn't really compensate the time you will be away from home. I've always worked, my last position was my job, looking back 3 years later getting laid off was probably one of the best things that has happened, I was able to find a job at the same level, a little less money but not with all the stress and I work for a family friendly business which helps with the kids. Good luck to you!

I agree that only you can decide what's best for you and your family/situation. For me being home with my girls was way more important than bringing in more money so I choose to find ways to save money as well as make money from home. This was I am still contributing on top of being here for my family. But that's what was best for ME so it might not be what's best for you. I would just sit down and really think hard on how you'll feel if you are away more and if it's something that you will be ok with.
