So here's the deal... We need daycare, but can't afford it.  And right now, we can't afford for me not to be working...  And this is really the last week I'll actually have people able to watch my kiddo.  I cannot work full time cause of scheduling conflicts with my hubby, and SOOOOO my only option is basically to work from home... But I don't want to be scammed, so anyone know of good reliable companies that provide Work At Home jobs?

Too bad we can't Internet babysit! We could pass the baby around and all get our baby fix!

I know people who work from home, but they have their own businesses selling or doing book keeping/ medical billing. Not something you could start next week.

I don't know what hours hub works but could you at least be a waitress or work the overnight shift at Walmart until you can arrange something better? Our Walmarts always need overnight workers.

Hahaha internet babysitting... now THAT would solve ALL my problems lol!  I guess the thing I could do is try and find someone else who works and we could do a co-op daycare or something... Fortunately I work a somewhat flexible schedule right now, but its during the day when hubby works no matter how I work it.  I think we might just have hubby switch group homes because the one he's at now is just a pain in the arse schedule wise.  (He's also 'looking' for a new job, though not hard enough IMO)

As for waitressing, I suppose now that I'm... how old am I?  I clean forgot!  Anyway, I'm over 21 now, so I guess I could.  (Yeah you can't serve unless you are 21 or older in Utah.)  But Walmart I don't think I could manage, especially not grave shifts.  (Long story as to why... come to think of it, I'd probably have trouble waitressing... gah!)

One of the things that most companies require for employees who work from home is a home office. It has to be where the computer is, sometimes have a phone, and have a door. They expect their employees to work without interruption, just as they would if they actually came into a work office, so you would likely have to alternate your schedule with your husband's, working while he is home. Some companies also simply set up schedules, just as if it were a real office.

 

I know you've said that doing traditional college isn't for you, but maybe you could consider a technical college. There isn't any of that writing and stuff, just learn things, test for them and get out. Once you've done that, maybe finding something at home for medical stuff would be easier and employers are less likely to have demands on the time of day you work, and more likely to be interested only in the amount of hours you work.

 

Unless you work for yourself, working from home is not what some people think it is or spread rumors it is. And working for yourself is not exactly sunshine and roses.

just drop the kid here - everybody else does!  lolz!  and don't pay me - nobody else does!  :D  

 

i watch (my grandson, my neice & nephew, the kid next-door, etc...) the kids so their parents can work.  i always hope they're getting ahead, then i hear they do stupid crap with their $$ and wonder what i'm doing this for.......

 

you can probably do some sort of customer service from home - i toyed with the idea for a minute - you need to have a dedicated space, though, and you may not be able to take a break when you need to tend to your sweet baboo.  i was brokering freight from the house but it was too stressful - i wasn't eating.

I used to work from home.  I worked for HP on a network management contract.  Some companies use work from home employees for their help desk support.  My job was long hours even tho it was at home.  A help desk job / customer support position would most likely be fixed hours instead, which is probably better for you.

Before I opened my shop I used to give guitar lessons out of my home. Made a darned good living too.

 

Mom used to make and decorate wedding cakes before she got sick. Then she started making afgans and sweaters and baby clothes. She made a lot of money once she got going.

 

I have a friend who makes jewelry and sells it on consignment at a local jewelry store.

 

So, what are your talents? It takes a while to build up clientele, but if you can make something at home and sell it, eventually you might be able to make enough money to live on. Are you good at making gluten-free goodies? :D

I used to work from home a few years ago, but stopped because I had 3 very young kids and I was losing my mind! I'm going to be taking a few daycare kids now that 2 of my 3 are going to be in school. I start September 4th... I'm nervous, but excited!

Bartfull - I think you are a psychic or something!  I don't openly advertise that I bake!  And yet you figured me out! Hahahaha

 

notme! - sure thing!  Free daycare ftw!  (Kidding.  Don't have any idea where you are!)

 

Meanwhile, I think we've come to a conclusion.  Hubby's gonna find a second job and I'll STAY at home.

Well, I've never been called psychic although a few people have called me psych-O. :blink:  :lol:

 

How about you send me some of those baked goodies and I'll tell you if I think you can make money selling them? :)

No soy and no corn. Oh, and I'm off of dairy and sugar right now too. Let's see, what does that leave? Not MUCH!! Guess I'll have to wait a while until I get some of these things back. :angry:

Hmmm only thing that complicates my cooking is the sugar.  *thinks*  What do you use as a replacement?

(I use mostly rice flour in my cooking hence the reason why I say no soy and no corn isn't a problem lol)

 

Edit: Carob doesn't bother you does it?  (I use carob as a chocolate replacement since I try to avoid chocolate.  Sometimes I can't resist though.)

Stevia for a sweetener? I don't know about carob - haven't tried it. Chocolate seems to bother me though. I still think salicylates are bothering me so carob is probably out. (I had a Lara bar yesterday, the one with nothing in it but cashews and dates. Had a bad reaction and I know cashews don't bother me so it must have been the dates. The sals forum lists dried fruit as very high in sals. It's a shame because it was good.)

Okay, well I've got other recipes I can make without carob and probably without salicylates.

 

And oh yeah!  Forgot about Stevia!

 

*grin* I'm up for this challenge... it will be fun!

    • Ditto. However, this is what I can never understand about gluten free food.  (see the bold bits which I've taken from the article) "We wanted to determine if gluten consumption will affect health in people with no apparent medical reasons to avoid gluten. Gluten-free foods often have less dietary fiber and other micronutrients, making them less nutritious and they also tend to cost more,” I wonder why  what so much of what I eat  that's gluten free doesn't have added vitamins - we of all people need fortification in our cereals and bread, surely?       
    • Yeah we learned that the hard way.  I am inclined to think (as I did initially) that it was JUST the Cheerios but as time is passing and she is not bouncing back I am worried that we need to strip away dairy again for a while.
    • Oh I have no issue with being dairy free personally but tell that to a 13 year old.  We both went gluten-free at the same time and it has been mindlessly easy for me.  But I am easy about food and no real food issues.  I am far more adaptable.  She comes to the table with her own unique set of issues that complicate just easily transitioning to dairy free versions of much loved favorites.  To most they are jst that "substitutes" to her they are completely different foods and ones that she has no interest in eating.  They don't satisfy her need for XYZ.  It is like craving an apple and someone handing you a fish.  For her anyway! LOL!
    • I believe the talk around this forum is that cheerios are not gluten free enough for people with celiac at this time. I don't know if anything has changed on that and when their lawyer calls me I'll quickly delete this. haha  
    • Could be we generally say get off of dairy for a few months when going gluten free. The part of the intestines that produce the enzymes, and help break down dairy are associated with the tips of the villi, which are the most damaged if not gone in celiacs. THIS is why most of us end up with a lactose intolerance early on. And most can introduce it later after healing. As to her symptoms with it there was a bunch of research about dairy permeated the gut and causing neurological issues in a autism study I was looking at years ago. And there have been other studies about damaged intestines and how the hormones in milk can easier effect ones body.   Personally I also have a huge grudge against dairy on a personal level as it is not natural to suck on a cows tits and drink the stuff, nor your dogs, nor a rabbits......I mean come on even Human Breast milk you would find odd to drink as an adult right? Back in the past dairy was a great way to get calories and fats when there was famine, etc around I mean it is meant to make a calf grow into a 500+lb cow. But on a genetic and hormonal level it is not really for human consumption and now days the whole corporate BS propaganda push and dairy farms shove that oh its healthy stuff down your throat. There are plenty of dairy free options for everything feel free to message me if you need help finding anything I have been dairy free for over a decade.
