My little 10 hour a week job keeps me busy. I can fit it in with other important stuff with a bit of effort ... and it lends itself to allowing freedom to do other things. I'm thinking about it because I have recently seen a full time job that I am interested in. I'm trying to think about working full-time as opposed to part time.
It would probably be a lot like how it was when I worked while my husband was back at school. It would probably be like having two jobs. That's the down side ... . It's pretty stressful for me to feel like I'm "failing" at keeping all the balls up in the air, and adding more balls without figuring out how to offload a few would create problems for me. The big plus side I think would be that one's contributions were appreciated (you know that because they pay you ... lol). Definitely something to think about.
