My husband and I have been discussing the possibility of me getting a part time job. We really want to work on getting some debt cleaned up that we have accumulated since my husband's work slowed way down about 4 years ago. He has work now and we have income but the interest on those credits cards is a killer! Of course any job I get would have to have the optimal hours.....my husband is particular : ) He doesn't want me to work in the evenings because he won't get to see me and he doesn't like me driving in the dark, especially if the weather is bad. So it would have to be a job that was a few days a week, not an 8 hour day either. My oldest who is 15 could sit with the younger kids while I'm gone.
I'm just continuing to pray about it. I don't know if my contribution would even put a dent into our debt but I guess it's a start. I hate debt and I do feel we are a slave to it but what's done is done. I'm just praying to find our way out of it. At this point it seems so overwhelming, especially when the economy is getting worse by the day....so many are losing their jobs....blue collar and white collar alike. My husband is self employed and in a line of work that has been hit the hardest. The future , as least financially , seems so uncertain to me. I try not to think about it too much. It's hard to imagine ever losing our lovely country home. It's not the home so much (although I do like it)....its the land and the room we have to roam. So sad to think about :( However, I trust God will give us the grace we need if that day ever comes.
