I could possibly get a job in food service or retail, but that type of job experience is not going to help my resume or even pay above minimum wage. Not to mention those type of jobs require working on weekends and I don't want to have to pawn my kids off on my family every weekend and paying for a sitter isn't worth it. I would be working to pay the sitter.
Ideally I am hoping to find a job working from home so that I can work more flexible hours... It is so frustrating. Know-body wants to hire a stay at home mom who hasn't worked for 13 years. Not when they have another applicant who is younger with more experience and move availability... I'm going to be at the bottom of the pile every time... Not to mention I don't even have a degree since I haven't finished college yet... Still working on that, but its on the back-burner now since finding a job is my top priority. I regret not going back to school sooner and I really regret being financially dependent on Ex for the last 13 years. Although I do not regret being able to stay home and raise my kids, I am so glad I was able to do that.
