 I'm a SAHM but would like to find something that fits into our lifestyle...nothing yet!

I like staying home though!

What about you? Which one are you? Which would you rather be?

I'm a sahm right now, I can't work because of this pregnancy, and I am miserable. I miss my work and will be returning as soon as I can.

I was a SAHM up until a year ago, now I am a WM FT(40hrs wk). I'm having some health issues and may have to go PT or quit. I have to wait and see what they say at my appointments. I would love to work from home, but I want to be a LC, and it's kinda hard to get the work experience for certification if you stay at home 24/7.

 Pregnancy can do that to you!

 No clue yet. I had a seizure in high school and was on medication for several years, but quit taking meds with DRs permission more than 9 years ago. I had a rather disturbing aura out of nowhere a couple of months ago, and am having other neurological problems. Each by themselves are no big deal, but because I am having so many, we are concerned. I also suffer from clinical depression and need to get back on medication.

I'm a SAHM right now.
I may have a WAHM opportunity working for WIC. If that doesn't work out I'll likely be going back to work full time right after baby is born. I hate the idea of going back to work. I've been home for the last 2.5yrs. But reality is I can make double what dh makes and I'm tired of living pay check to paycheck and not being able to do the things we want to do :(

I'm a SAHM and have been for the last 10 years.  I'm going to be going to work soon and am excited about the paycheck and the opportunity to meet new people and all of that but I'm dreading missing time with my family and not having the time to do my hobbies.
