Mary ~ Thanks for that information. The only problem with the working nights is my husband is a farmer. His hours are strange and by the time he gets home I'm ready for bed.
Sharlene Wills ~ Thank you. I have thought of that. I have a certificate in Desktop Publishing & Desgin and I also have one in Photography. I have heard that it is hard to start a at home business.
Brianna Journault ~ What is a day home? I haven't heard of one of those.

Is it possible to work an off shift or an evening or two in your community. I worked a couple of overnights a week as a nurse and it seem like I was home the majority of time with my children. My husband was home to watch the children while I was at work and this worked for us. I heard of working for home jobs, but I tend to think you need to be careful with scams and I think many of these women who work at home had previous jobs which they were able to translate to home.
I work in healthcare and I wonder if a person who transcribes at home would be a suggestion to look into. I do think this takes experience or education. Another suggestion which doesn't require a lot of education is a Ward Clerk or HUC at your local hospital. This is a way to work when your husband is home in the evening. These jobs are generally pretty good paying positions.
My final suggestion is budgeting to live on less. I do think coupons and spending like you have nothing does add up to working outside the home. Finding free and inexpensive activities do help and living without cell phones, cable TV, going out to eat etc... makes a difference.
