Do Your Math

3:54 pm Frying the Bacon

Ang. mentioned the other day that she is thinking about getting a retail job. Actually, I think it was more that the idea flitted briefly across her mind and was quickly quashed by a dose of realism. Even though she has only have the number of children I do, her financial reality is similar: retail sales jobs just won’t pay enough to fund the amount of childcare she would need, and without recent work experience, that’s all we’re “qualified” for.

It just struck me when discussing this with her to remind you all to do the math if you are thinking about going back to work. All the math. Don’t forget incidentals like the lunch money if you don’t have time to pack lunches anymore, extra gas, new clothes, ad nauseum.
