Housekeeping to get me use to working again.  Simple work, decent money, decent hours.

I would talk to him and see what is going on financially. See if cutbacks are in order or if a job (second income) needs to happen.

I would be wondering if he was planning on leaving me and didnt want to pay alimony. You getting a job would be the end of any alimony you could ask for and he would be free and clear to leave. Just my thought.
