So, it's almost official. It seems that towards the end of the year my company is majorly downsizing, to the point where I may have to take a 60% paycut and change to part time status. The horribly sucks. We can't afford for me to loose that much income so either I go back to work full-time at a "real" job not at home, or I have to find a new legitimate Work from home job.
Daycare for my daughter would cost us $263 a week! That's how much they charge until they are 2 years old. Figuring that out, I would have to make $10/hour just to pay for daycare (taking into account taxes, etc). Not to mention that my son is on two waiting lists for after school care since his Kindergarten gets out at 2:30pm. Thirdly, my daughter has occupational therapy once a week and if we had to stop that, it would be devastating as she is already behind developmentally.
It would be so perfect if I could just work from home for a couple more years, until my daughter is old enough for full time preschool and has had enough occupational therapy that she is close to being back on track with her age group.
But life isn't perfect, is it.
So, now I need to figure out my options -- and none of them seem to make me smile...yet.
