Why I Work...

I work because we need two incomes, not because we live extravagantly, but because we made some decisions a few years ago that are causing me to need to work. We bought a home (ok, a doublewide) and a new car that were technically out of our budget, but we can squeeze the payments on my husbands income. However, that doesn't leave us a lot of wiggle room, therefore, I work.

Do I enjoy working? Yes, it gets me out of the house and gets me some adult interaction. Currently I'm technically between jobs, though I am babysitting for a friend to bring in some extra cash each month. I am actively looking for a full-time job though, as we are ready to be out of debt and provide more for our children.

I am blessed with a wonderful husband that is supportive of me and my decision to not just jump into another job after my last job fiasco (another post, another time). Luckily we have been blessed with my husband receiving wonderful raises and opportunities in the past couple of years that have allowed me to stay at home (more or less), but it's time to step back into the working world.
