Dh and I made a deal several years ago that if we moved to Texas, I would not have to work outside the home. I could be a stay at home mom. So we have been here a year. I got a babysitting job but it didn't work out because of the parents - the nicest thing I will post is that we have different parenting styles, I hate to bag on people and there were reasons behind it. So then I got another little girl to babysit for and was supposed to babysit her brother when he was born in September. The Daddy lost his job and now I am not needed.
I recently started to be a Independent Pampered Chef Consultant and yet to have my first show, which will be in December.
All of the jobs that are part time I am overqualified for. The job I do want, I do not have the required certification for, even though I have 10 years of experience.
Dh is all over the fact that I have not gotten a job yet and that I am making every excuse not to work outside the home. I told him I wasn't making excuses, I just am not doing it. That was the deal.
I have considered doing fostering just so that I can have a sibling for my son and have some income. I hate the idea of having DS go to daycare and 3/4 of my paycheck go for daycare.
But without a babysitting job or something extra, we are not able to make ends meet - I mean, we can pay our bills but wouldn't have money for food and gas. Any ideas of what to do? I really am praying that the Pampered Chef will take off so that I can remain a SAHM.
