Job Update
Well, unfortunately, it didn't work out :(

She wasn't able to work scheduling out with my availability, which is really understandable considering hubby works 40 hours a week and goes to school in the evenings, I have a daughter starting 1st grade, and, a son who I currently stay home with which cuts into my availability. Which also is why I haven't gotten a job yet, and why I have to put off beauty school until my son starts school next year. I just wish I knew of something I could do to bring in some extra cash. Maybe housecleaning. Or babysitting, if I can find anyone who needs a babysitter...lol Ah well, hopefully I'll work something out.

I'm so sorry. I've been in your situation before and know how tough it is.

I tried working when my kids were little and it was very hard so I understand. I hope something will come along soon!

Oh, drat. Here's a thought: does the beauty school have day care? Just about all the tech schools around here do (most of them have child development degrees and such, so the day care is the lab!)

A few of my friends are making extra money doing housecleaning. They are charging $20/hr and it generally runs about 4 hrs once a week for a house and about 2 hrs for an apartment. I am gardening for a neighbor who lost his wife but wanted to keep her flowerbeds going. It takes me about 3-4 hours once a week.
I don't know how you feel about housework, but I would rather do yard work for extra money than clean house.

Babysitting teachers kids is how my mom brought in extra income when I was a little girl. Try talking to your daughters teachers. There are always teachers looking for childcare and they may also be keeping their ears open for other parents who need childcare. Good luck. Sorry the tattoo shop didn't work out.
