I was talking to a lady recently and she said she never worked outside the home, she always had a man to pay her bills and the state to help take care of her kids.Takes all kinds.

Just got me wondering how many women never had a job outside the home before becoming a mom or ever had a job since becoming a mom.

I have worked outside the home. That being said i know a lady who, whenever df & I talk about finding a job/different one, she tries to tell me/him that we can't be picky about which job we apply for....then there are times she bitches about not having money........

 well that's just weird. not like she is paying your bills. if you all want to change jobs and whatever...what business is it of hers to comment on if you are picky or not. weird. how long have you known her? is she a close friend or just someone you know a little?

I'm actually disabled so working was never something I could do well. I tried but failed. In the past two years I began a business working from home. I really love that. I wasn't looking for it but it fell into my lap and it is going great for me.

I handspin yarn on a spinning wheel. It started as a hobby but I make so much yarn that I could never knit it all. People started buying it and bam I had a business off and running. Now two yarn shops sell my yarn as well.

It just takes time and practice. You start with a drop spindle.

I take to it more naturally because I was raised by artists and that actually does affect you when you are learning a new art form. I began knitting and crocheting when I was only three and could handsew quilts by five.
