Going to be a SAHM for a year

Finally paid off our house and my car and have enough money in the bank that we can afford to live comfortable on just one income so starting next month I'm quitting my job and finishing my last year of school as a SAHM. I'm excited and so are the kids. I just worry about it being difficult returning to work after being off that long but I suppose we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

While I wouldn't want to be a sahm as my job, a year off to tie up loose ends or even just be off would be FANTASTIC. Congrats!

I'm excited about it. I've worked my ass off and did a lot of over time to become financially stable enough to do it. It hasn't been easy but 10 years of saving and here we are!

I just went back to work after being home for 5 years. Both kids in school all day and I had all day to get cleaning, shopping and errands done before they got home. I miss that freedom. But I like my weekly paycheck, haha!

I don't think I could handle it long term especially when the kids start school. I'll go nuts. I need to be busy.

I'm taking off and finishing my degree so I can finally be in a career field I want instead of settling like I've done for years.

Good for you!  I was a SAHM for 3 1/2 years and I was was really nervous about going back to work!  I love my job though.

Congrats! As long as you volunteer and keep up with your skills, you shouldn't have any problem jumping back into the working world.
