~FireFly~ Posted January 18, 2012 Share Posted January 18, 2012 This really is the question... I work part time, ds13 is with me. I don't make tons of money but it does help. I spent all weekend working on a buget - without my contribution and we can live on what dh brings home. It will be tight. Four years ago I went back to work after being home ten years in order to payoff a few bills. Instead of doing so, we managed to accrue a few more. Since then dh has received raises. Just saying this balances us back to where we were afew years ago...maybe a little better. Also this weekend we were able to focus on just school (business trip - hung out in hotel both days - focused on school) I was able to explain three math concepts & he got them without the frustration of being interupted, etc. After looking at what I could be doing with ds13 and what we are actually accomplishing I'm thinking I should leave the partime job, stay home to ready him for high school. I'm not sure if high school is more than a mere thought...I just know that he is miserable trying to study in the midst of chaos. This is not a new wave of thinking for me. Dh says go for it...I'm worried about financial burden... Any thoughts/suggestions? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
