Hi Everyone,


I have been teaching part-time this semester at the local University.  It is a good position, but the work I bring home is daunting.  I have childcare for the time I teach, but not when I am at home trying to correct and plan.  It is beginning to take a toll on our family life.  I rush out of school to get home (my step-mom watches my kids for free, but has to leave as soon as I am done teaching.  Also, my step-mom will not be able tobaby sit  in the Fall.  When we combine what we have to pay for childcare, how much I make, and how much work I do (and stress over) at home , it is not worth it. 


So, I come to you ladies who always have good advice.  Any ideas of how I can do some kind of work?  My DS will be in Kindergarten and Emma will be 18 months and home with me.  I hate to leave at night as I think DS will need that time with me. 


I know this is a tall order, I am just looking to get my life back in order here.


 


Thanks!

Have you looked into a home based business? I am gone 2 nights per week about 4 hours each time and I bring in good money doing what I do. There are SO MANY out there that there is bound to be one to fit you, your area, etc. I was reading the other day that more and more people are doing this (direct sales) because of how bad the economy and job stability is.

Just a thought.
