I have been a SAHM for two years. I have a 2.5 and a 1.5 year old, and my husband is a contractor, so we move where the contracts are (ugh....AND expensive). I recently applied for a job that I thought I'd never land, and low-and-behold, I landed...and at the highest salary I've ever seen! BUT my husband doesn't want me to take it because it means I would have to move 6 hours away for work. My schedule would allow a 3 day weekend every other week, and 9 hour days. I already found a great nanny in that area. My Hubs is so passionate about me staying at home with the girls, he's even said he'd support me moving back home to establish a "home" closer to my parents and sister, and then just travel to stay with him every three weeks. I'm torn. I'd love to work, but I'd love to really establish a community and home with my girls. What should I do?
How can I work, look after four children younger than 12, with no support and no qualifications? Separated and alone, no friends or family. No income. I need to fix this quickly. Paralysed by fear unable to make a plan. Can someone help me and my family? I'm 48 years old. Haven't worked in 13 years whilst marriedmjmmmnj
