This is the first time I've looked through this board and I find it really interesting.

Concentrate on what you like about WOH and remember what you lacked when you SAH.

First, concentrate on what you do have not what you don't.

It is hard to be in a situation you don't really like.

If you can't change you woh and your dh wah, can you change your job? Do some brainstorming and discover what you want in a job and then research what jobs will give you that at the money your family needs. That way, you will be happier while working toward your ultimate goal of sah. Also from what I've read, getting a new business off the ground and earning the owner a living can take 5+ years. So do some research in that area as well so you will have a good idea of how long it will be before you can realistically reach your personal goal of sah. That will give your goal a time frame to it. It might be shorter, it could take longer. But not having at least an idea of how long it will take will make your woh much harder and seem like forever.

I am in the same boat as you with the exception of the fact that I do not hate my job.
