It must be nice to have someone to rely on

I was chatting with my cousin this weekend--she is the same age I am but she has been married since 1980. One of her DDs is having the first grandchildren (twins) in 8 weeks, so my cousin said that she quit her job, which she didn't like, and she is going to stay out of work for a while to help her DD w/ the babies. I am thinking that I really am hating my job right now but of course can't quit since otherwise I would have no money. It's very scary sometimes being totally responsible to support myself. Even when I was married to 2nd DH, he had an injury at work & was receiving worker's comp but he never would have been able to support himself & his DD on worker's comp and w/o me. Lucky him. I did lose my job one time when I was married to 1st DH but of course had to go right out & look for a job since I actually made more than my DH. For a while there I had 3 part time jobs. I have never been able to rely on someone else. Another friend of mine was joking about trying to find a new DH so she wouldnt' have to work and actually that thought never crossed my mind since all the time I was married, I always had to work. I didn't mind that but it would be nice to have that 2nd income.
