Here I am, second week single and second week without a job. It doesn't take a genus to know that in about two weeks I will be completely broke and in really big trouble. I would like to hear any ideas anyone might have to help me in my all of a sudden job search.  Work at home ideas, something different you may have done that really helped when you were searching for work , any ideas would be welcomed at this point. Oh yeah, just a little background, I quit working in august to go back to  school because the love of my life said , " Go ahead and go back to school I'll take care of everything". dumbest thing I have ever done because now I am not loving him or my life. I guess I should have put move thought into making that change, but  I didn't . YOU LIVE AND YOU LEARN.  Nothing to do now but move on. Anyway, like I said ,"Please give me some helpful hints if you can.

What I would do if I were you is babysit and become a Nanny for a good family. I have done this for over 20 years.  The only bad thing is no medical or dental benefits, but I get that through my husband's job so I didn't need that.   Then you can take your child with you, or stay at your home.

I'm sorry you are having such a hard time my advice sounds crazy but take a nice hot long bubble bath with relaxing music maybe a candle and a glass of wine then go to bed early and sleep (Tylenol PM if needed but then no wine) after relaxing and a good nights sleep maybe things will be clearer. Just a thought couldn't you get Alimony until you were out of school? Seems fair to me.
