i've worked since i was 16, had a lazy ex-husband, and 2 beautiful children. I know have a great bf and we bought our own house an hr and a half from where we used to live. I love where we live and we have a great friend group in our new home. But we decided that I would stay home to help run our plumbing business and tutor my son who was just removed from special ed and needs all the help he can get academically. i'm new to staying home and having a hard time adjusting. I find myself doing more and more for my bf to the point that now i feel i'm not doing enough for him...truth be told, he never asks for anything! i know it's me. i know i'm trying to be super house-girlfriend because i no longer can contribute financially. i always knew being home would be tough for me because it's new to me...but i really feel like i'm loosing myself and my relationship is starting to show it. i am lucky to have this man who is supportive of me and my children and don't want to loose that spark. i've thought of hobbies but don't want to add anymore monthly debt to out household. everyone tells me to get a part time but i can't do that if i'm answering the phone for a 24/7 business. so i started to throw jewelry parties to bring in cash flow and keep me moving. i find that by the end of the day i have nothing to talk about. please give me any advise...any insite...anything at all!!!!! i want to be a happy at home mom. how do i make this transition emotionally and psychologically?
