Hi Shelley, I am probably a little older than you as my children are both grown. However, I went through first some personal things that left me depressed for a while and then I had some medical problems (probably related to the former). Anyway, I found myself at home. I really didn't want to go back to working in an office, but for a while I went to some interviews (secretly wishing they wouldn't hire me). I thought about making money on the internet, but could only find those scams. However, in the last several months, I have found writing jobs that are paying me some money. Still not a full time job, money wise. But, I should make $600 + this month and increasing. I know this wasn't what you were asking, but I noticed your nursing and child care background. I see a lot of writing jobs for people with a medical background - you would qualify. If you have any interest in writing and would like to make some extra money, send me a message and I'll be glad to steer you towards any jobs I come across. And yes, I do love being at home and can't imagine working outside of the home agian, if I can keep making money in this way. Best to you.

Hello and Thanks, I would absolutly be intersted in the writing job you have found. I love to write actually. I have written a book and plan on getting it published at some point so that would be so cool. I thank you for your response and for your offer to help I look forward to hearing back from you. Take care and God Bless, Shelley

I love being at home. Sometimes I get bored when I'm by myself but everytime I even think about getting a job, I think no way. I don't want to get out there in that mad rush anymore. I'm 61 and my husband has a good job - he's a truck driver. It's just us two at home now so I don't really need to work. I have a bad back too so that would make it harder to work. I just really enjoy being at home. So, you're not crazy at all.

I took a year off about four years ago when we first moved south but, since all of my children are just about grown (my youngest is 17 and just graduated), I started to get bored and went back to work. I did feel more free when I wasn't working and I liked that part of it.
