    I am a bit late setting this but, I have been thinking about it for a while. I would like to get my debt paid off, but more important is my health.
    I am going to try and do the evening job for the next 3 months and then switch to a home coding job. My husband is not a person that likes to be alone, so if I am at least in the house even if I am working he will not be so lonely. He doesn't care about the money.The pay is a lot lower working from home and after 3 years I really have mastered ...
