  • Something in between. I plan to work, but I'm hoping I can pull off 3 12 hour shifts a week, so I can be home the rest of the week.

  • I am experiencing both right now. not really a "career" but I work PT at night and love the job so far. I was a sahm for 2+ years. I loved it, but I felt bad depending on SO to be the moneymaker. We were always behind and he worked so hard. I only work 5 hour nights, 5 days a week!
