I used to love working, and resisted staying home with my kids at first. Then life and career threw some curve balls and after a difficult transition to SAHMing I grew to really, really love staying home with my kids, especially the last few years. Now my youngest is in first grade, and our master plan was for me to go back so we can pay off debt and save for college and retirement. I am interviewing for a dreamy job, but it does not pay very well and I am wondering if it is worth the extra stress in our life. I am finding myself somewhat ambivalent about jumping back into the workforce. I'd like to work through my ambivalence before the interview and would love to hear from folks who faced a similar impasse and are happily working again.
What questions did you ask yourself? Any books you'd recommend?
