I'm frustrated beyond belief. I get this GREAT, shining review. And then I get yelled at. *sigh* For something I didn't do. *Bigger Sigh* Then we get our checks. I got a raise. 21 cents. Are you freakin' kidding me? *BIG MEGA SIGH!*
Just par for the course this week.

I'm on a desperate hunt for a second job. Money is tight & it falls on me to bring more cash into the house. Yippee. I know the "easy " solution is just look for a new daytime job, but that means I have to leave my kids with someone else to raise. I just can't do that. I don't care if it's grandparents or not, the thought of anyone other than us teaching the baby in ways differently than us, being there for every milestone, etc. many days a week just kills me. I will work a second job to avoid that from happening. And so I'm on the hunt.

Anyone know of any leads?

I completely understand where you are coming from. This is the ONLY reason why I took 2 years off the the corporate gig. I needed to be there for my kids. Of course, I would give anything to have a couple of (stable) grandparents around for the helping hand. It will work out...if you are anything like me, you will MAKE it work even if it kills you.

Okay, maybe not kills you, but leaves you drop dead exhausted.

I don't have any leads and really, we have money issues too. SUCKS big time. And I wouldn't leave my kids to anyone else either!

salt meet wound.
kills me that I can't afford to stay at home with foo - - i racked up too much "costly life" prior to baby and apart from taking a midnight shift can't be the one "raising" my foo.

good luck with your job hunt... have you considered harassing publishing houses for proofreading gigs???
