I am a stay at home mom to wonderful 3yr old twin girls. I love being a stay at home mom. although the adult interaction is a bit on the sparce side i wouldnt change it for anything. unfortunatly we have fallen on tough times financially and me not working is causing tension with my husband and I. which I understand and dont think he is out of line. he is unable to get anymore work at his job then he already is. but i am having a lot of trouble finding a job. his hrs arnt the greatest to work around. he works till 11pm on mondays. and works from 8am-5pm tues thurs fri sat sun. hes off wed. i would work retail but no one wants someone who can only work a few night hrs on the weekend. they want open for the whole weekend. and my mother is home and will watch the girls but only for a mon-fri 9-5. and the papers have about a half a colum of help wanted adds and no matter how much i send and send and send. it seems like all these adds on craigs list and all the career sites are bogus or no one ever gets back to me. except for daycares. and they always say i cant bring my kids or need to pay for them full price. well paying defeats the purpose of working and ill be damed if im going to leave my kids to take care of other peoples all day. that just seems wrong to me. ive tried telemarketing and things of the like and im just horrible i cant do it its not in my nature. i would love love to start an at home business but i have neither the funds or the credit for that and i cant find anyone who needs a baby sitter to get some extra money. so the actual question is does anyone know of any real work from home jobs. not something the i get 75 cents for every e-mail or i need to send 200$ to get the supplies to stuff envelopes or 55$ for a start up kid. that just seems like scams to me. or sales on my house phone all day. because im to the point that im starting to get worried it is really becoming an issue. thanks in advance for any help anyone can give.
