Now you ladies can see one of the reasons I do the work I do from home. My phone is next to me and my computer is in front of me and I write, write, and write even if I am interrupted from time to time by the phone. I am exploring outsidce things as well but have been disappointed and disalusioned more often than not. When it would cost nearly as much in expenses as I would earn part time, why bother? Keep your eyes open and check jobs on the internet as well, they often have computer jobs working from home....happy hunting! [Roll Eyes] [Roll Eyes]

TVC15, I agree with Dotsie that being home for teenagers is just as (if not more) important as being home when they're babies and toddlers. I've been home full-time with my girls since my younger daughter was 6-months-old (they're 16 & 14 now). I was scared about the $, and scared that I'd end up depressed on the sofa like my mother was, and scared ... well, I was just scared.

But, everything ... and I mean everything ... has worked out. My girls tell me that they are glad that I'm home when they get home from school. They "unload" on me as soon as they walk in the door. I am glad that I'm here to listen to them. I feel like I really know my girls. They even tell me that they love me ... now if that isn't the coolest thing a teenager can tell a mother, I don't know what is. [Wink]

Misfire, you are blessed! Keep those communication channels open. It's so important. [Wink] I'm working at it myself. My teens are 16,17, and 19. [Eek!]

Thanks for the advice ladies! So far, what I've decided is that if it can't be part time, so that I am home for him, then I'm not going to go to work.
