So DH floored me and said I can stay home, with the understanding we will be poor for a while He totally will support my decision on this, and now I am thinking....
I really like my job. Its what I went to school for, and I love the company. I don't doubt that in 2 or 3 years they will hire me back if/when a position opens. My concern is money flow until then. In order for me to stay home, I really would need to bring in some money for the household. I have about 20k in school loans, and I don't believe that DH should be paying that for me. Also, we want to buy a home, and me not bringing in any money wont help make that happen.
Wondering what all of the SAHMs do? Do you have a source of income? Would love some ideas here, besides picking up some waitressing shifts. I am in the fashion industry, and would love to keep a toe in that pond if possible so when I am ready to get back into the work-force I still have some value. I know some companies will hire at home workers for data entry- anyone doing that? Doesn't it pay?
My other concern is not working and not contributing to my retirement fund for a few years. I just feel like I will never be financially secure if I don't work. But I would give anything to stay at home with LO for the 1st 2 or 3 years
Too too much to think about!!!
