From SAHM to WOHM how did you do it.

I need to get a job!!!! I have been applying like crazy to all the hospitals around here to get a CNT/CNA job. I would say I have applied to at least 30 jobs. UGH.

Well long story short, DH and I are rocky, if it comes down to divorce (I told him I give it another year, let him finish his school so at least one of us has a good paying job) I need to have a job where I can take care of the kids. I have to put the thoughts of homeschooling my kids out of mind for the time being, and realize that I may not be able to do that. I will have to come to an agreement with myself that childcare is ok, and that my boys will be fine (I'm terribly scared of them being with anyone other than us)

I have to come to the realization that if things don't change in 1 year, I may be a single mom, wohm mom, and that is just how things will be.

I was in the Army for 8 years, I have experience but nothing that goes into civi world... I have thought about getting a DOD job with the gov, but it would be really full time mon-fri. I would have to find child care every day of the week!!!

I don't know how you guys do it.. I'm scared to death to be away from my boys, scared of the habits they may learn.. Scared of what may happen while I'm gone (yes I'm a tad of a control freak) But at the same time I need to prepare myself for the worse and get my ducks in a row and figure something out in case I'm out on my own eventually...

Re: From SAHM to WOHM how did you do it.

What about a home health agency for a job? Have you tried a staffing agency?
