  • I'm sorry. My heart goes out to you! You have my empathy. That would be hard. I hope one day you'll find a job that works for your health, lifestyle and for your family. Here none of us have jobs. Not me due to my Health. DH lost his job over 2 years ago. Both married daughters too & one son in law. No good jobs here! Our son in law's job is going to Mexico! So did DH's too. Sad. Best of Luck to you!

  • I am sorry! I definitely knows how it feels to be so overwhelmed with working and being a mom. No type of hours would ever be compatiable with the depends of motherhood.. Have you considered changing your hours?

  • Are you working full time?? It would depend on what your financial needs are but with my job, I work when I want and only work 2-3 hours at a time and don't ever work weekends. Yes, I am in direct sales but I earn a full time pay just working 2-3 night/parties a week. Maybe you could consider something like this?....
