MJ~

When I left my husband, I was a glorified housewife, I taught aerobics part time which paid very little money. I had no saving, no real income, and three kids, a dog and a cat to try and house and feed. It's taken a long time but I am finally getting there. I found a shitty job first but it paid some bills and gave me some office experience and I kept looking for a better one which I found 8 months later. Things have been tough, really tough at times. I've had to sell things just to have money for groceries. Now things are better, it's a long, hard road....but a happier one because I am truely independent.

I know you are looking for work, but since you have a computer at home, maybe start searching for at home data input jobs. There are the medical billing ones and such that pay fairly well. Or take some online computer classes. I found an employer that has allowed me to take all the computer classes I want to enhance what I do and they pay for it.

Start taking small steps, finding a small job, saving your own money. If you make yourself independent, then you'll know that you are with your husband because you choose to be there and you have the peace of mind that you can survive on your own. If I can do it.....anyone can.

Be well

Thanks Tracylyn,
Would you explain more about home data input jobs? I don't know about these or where to look for them?
That would be perfect for me!

Believe me, I am no stranger to starting over. I swear, I will never do this to myself again. Some lessons have been harder for me to learn.

When I was 17 I began the responsibility of taking care of myself and my newborn, by 19, I was taking care of myself, two babies, and a brain-injury husband.... I survived. I supported my family, went back to college and earned my BS degree and started a business.

Then I married a wealthy older man who didn't want me to work. I liked it alot. At first it was hard to have so much time on my hands, but I eventually learned that I could keep busy doing lots of interesting things.
My husband decided his job was killing him so he quit....that's how I ended up in this state I presently live. We decided to open our own business.....my brother joined...I was eliminated..... got divorced over it. I started another business....failed miserably, lost most of my money and got married again.
Got divorced.....started another business and bought me a home.
Got feeling insecure, married again, and broke my ankle the morning I was planning to leave my marriage. Since the injury, sold my home before I lost it.....and here I am....starting over again....but only in my mind. Now I am alot older, just more experienced at marriage and divorce, and starting businesses!
Yes, I know I can do anything I set my mind too. Just in the limbo stage.

No problem MJ, I thought they sounded like something you would like.

Here are a couple sites but a lot of times you can find them listed in the paper. There are always medical offices looking for someone to do their billing or there are places that will pay you just to type legal correspondence and stuff.

I hope these help, I just did a quick search on AskJeeves and found these.

I was looking for others birthdays and found this thread....Wow...I have grown a little in 2003.

This is the beauty of these threads.
Like a journal gone public.

I think that I will plan a party and invite friends over to play games and celebrate the New Year....with Hubby and I. We have both grown up a little more this year.

Happy New Year!

MJ you should get a 'live journal'. Record your thoughts for real. I'm sure it will be informative.

It's free.

I talked with hubby and he is too driven to entertain properly...and full of must do's in order to entertain tonight. So we decided to keep it simple, and enjoy the company of each other in seeing in the new year. Hope that You find the positive in you life...and go for the smiles in living simply.
