Working late

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?


  1. Oh gosh, I'm so sorry you're feeling that way. I have no ideas to give as far as making money from home. I have had many nights like those but luckily at this time of the year, business is slow with my husband's job and he is sometimes off or coming home early.

    It used to be so hard especially when I was pregnant. The kids miss daddy. And now tonight my husband has to get up early in the morning so he is in bed already. My son just got up from nap and asked, Where's daddy. *sigh* Many days are like this. Sometimes the kids don't see daddy for days in a row. I realize the sacrifice must be made so that mommy can stay home with the kids. It is one that I accept but not necessary like.

    Stay strong. Maybe someone can give you some ideas. Good Luck!

  2. You could try and get one of those jobs where you can work at home, I'm not sure as what though, the other idea is to start babysitting other children in the daytime from your local area, that way you can stay with Boy and earn money...sorry wish I could be more helpful...
