My husband's working late again tonight. I can understand why he's doing it, but it still makes me feel a little down. He used to work late quite regularly before we moved into this house, but for a few months there, he'd been home most days for dinner at 6:30 - all of us eating together as a family. It was my favourite part of the day. And then our credit card bill arrived, and everything we've bought for the house turned out to cost twice the amount of money that my husband earns in a month. So with that, the larger mortgage and all the higher bills, it's back to him working late evenings and me eating alone. I feel bad sometimes. I wish there was something I could do to bring in some extra money without going back to work, but I can't really come up with any good ideas. I think I've blogged about this before, but it's on my mind a lot. I think no matter what I do, I'll have to go back part-time at least, but I was wondering if there was something else I could do to bring in some money. Help?
