The Job Hunt Continues

So our getaway last weekend looks like it was really our last hurrah for awhile. It appears that the need for me to find a job has increased. We are doing well with me as a SAHM due to my husband's second job. It is a weird type of position that is purely work from home and commission based. But the commission has a cap on it (you get paid x per so many y's you service but once you get to so many y's we cut you off until next year). He figured out that he will hit the cap in August, therefore September will be our last check from that job this year.

I am trying to find ways to generate income from home myself but to no real avail. I don't want to commit too much time to anything because I do want to return to the workforce, the market is just so slow right now I haven't been able to find anything. I will take that back, I haven't been able to find anything that will allow me to make more than the cost of childcare.

I had made peace (to a degree) with my role as a SAHM but the pressure has returned. I have an interview scheduled for next week. I will keep my fingers crossed but it is hard to think positive after going on so many interviews. I am ready to be done interviewing! It has been over a year since I was laid off. YIKES.


  1. Best of luck on the interview next week! :)
    I found you on MBC 100 club!

  2. Good luck! I am nervous about having to go through the interview process again. I have a few years to go, but I still think about it.
    I also found you on MBC :)

  3. Hi, I found you through MBC =)

    Just want you to know that Im also a SAHM who doesnt always love the staying at home part (I actually use that as my blogging motto lol), but I love my children more than anything. Im sure there are a lot of us out there, but its still a closeted community =P

    Good luck with your job search.
