    Hi Alyssa,
    I work 2 jobs and I am not a WAHM really. I work as a librarian in a community college as my full time job. My second job is working as a research librarian for a small company. I usually work 5-10 hours per week for that. I just got hired full time in May. I used to work 19 hours a week for the college and then 5-10 for the second job.

    My WAH job is great and I was so happy to stumble onto it.

    I sell children's books (Usborne) from home, or doing home parties, etc. I'm also a doula, which I don't do in the home but I set my own ours for prenatal appointments and client load. I love both of my jobs!

    I work at home. I'm a graphic designer and recently came home. Right now, I have one consistent client. I design a sports newspaper once a month. Doing that, I make as much as I did working 30 hours away from home. I don't have anything to do for around 28 days a month, then I put the paper together in 3. Love it!

    Hi!
    I am single without children however I have a very good friend who is a single mom with four girls. She is a stay at home mom and registered nurse. She works as a telephone nurse she takes patient phone calls for a home health agency after hours (5pm to 8 am Monday thru Friday and 24hours on weekends and holidays). She has a phone which she has recieved from the agency so she can take the phone calls at her home versus going in to a call center. She makes enough money to support herself and her girls. I always thought that if I became a stay at home mom then I would do likewise.

    I just came home to work in October. I left my job for a major software company, for whom I had worked for 11 years, and I'm sure everyone (including my DH sometimes) thinks I am crazy for giving up a job with decent pay and amazing benefits. I have a 10 year old DS who can now come home after school instead of staying in after school care. He will also be able to be home for a real summer break from now on, rather than going to care every day.

    I spent a year training online to be a Medical Transcriptionist. I graduated and secured a contract with a great company, although I'm probably making half or a third what I was making before right now. It will get better once I get more experience and get faster. I also started Mystery Shopping when I came home, and I'm actually making more doing this than in my "real" work.

    I love the flexibility and not having to go work in a cubicle every day, even if I end up working more hours. I can't imagine going back to work outside the home. Now I just need to figure out how to keep on top of the house chores. I thought it would be easier, but so far, it hasn't been. I just need to get into a routine I think. But I'm loving it!

    I'm a WAHm. I do childcare and I have my own business. I love being home for my kids. I'm hoping to phase out the dayhome in a years time. We'll see. I might even consider a job once dd4 is in school full time. but for now, I love being home.

    I am a new wahm.....I have 2 grown dks, a ds who is 23 and lives on his own. We have a dd who is 20 yo and is attending college, she still lives at home.
    I became a Licensed Home Bakery in May 2007.....it's nice being your own boss! Business is steady....some weeks are better than others. The best part is that I set my own hours, and I am at home with my dh. I can focus on being frugal and keeping our home nice for us to enjoy.

    I think all jobs have their ups and downs....but for us, this is working!

    When my son was a baby, I quit teaching in public schools to be a SAHM. I started a tutoring service in my home, tutoring children from about 3 to 6 pm, and also on Saturdays. Then I got a child who was unable to attend school at all, and she came for 4 hours during the day time. So I had all the business I could handle, while staying at home.

    I took a job this summer and fall teaching on-line with our state's new internet school. This was full time with great benefits that I did from home with a computer and telephone. I loved it! But it got to be too many hours, moving WAY beyond full time, so I resigned.

    I am currently teaching a couple of classes at the local university. While the actual teaching is done on campus, all my prep and evaluation work is done at home. And I also do free lance writing from home.
    Spiritual:
    "You are fearfully and wonderfully made." Please... respect life.

    Financial:
    Debt free, hoping to stay that way!

    1. Keep on writing.
    2. Get some balance in my life.
    3. Lose weight. Hopefully 20# this year.
    4. Continue to be looking for how God wants to use me this year.
