      I swear if he doesn’t soon go back to work I am going to scream.  He is around me 24/7. I am a stay at home grandmother, I watch my youngest grandson during the day and I make and sell things on line, and it seems as if he need me to entertain him.  Well I can’t.
      And the co he has been working for seems to just be setting around makeing him call everyday just to tell him they have nothing for him yet.  Living on unemployment stinks and we are just kinda stuck in the house waiting for the phone to ring with the question  Why haven’t you paid you bill yet?

        • crochetbooger, I understand how frustrated you must be.  Did you think that your husband wants to work but feels awful because he cannot provide for his family?

          At this point, jobs are hard to find but may be you can have a home-based business.  

          Visit my website: www.geesuccess.com and also look at www.webinar.com.  I understand that it is not for everyone but you can get very far with this business if you really want to.

          I will keep you and your husband in my prayers.

        • Dear Crochetbooger: I know it must be hard and you must feel very frustrated, worried as well as other popped up emotions.  I don't know your situation fully and I hope both of you are patient with each others for you two are in it together and will get out together.  Love endures all thing.  Take care and will keep you in prayers.

        • needy isn’t the word..hotwoman...just think how they are when they get a cold...

          hotwoman is right...you need solutions and fast...it’s so hard to find jobs right now so i understand...my hubby has been looking for a part time job and to my amazement he’s being turned down for Lowes, Walmart etc...‘They’ tell him he does not have enough experience...go figure...like how much experience do you need to load and unload?

        • crochetbooger,

           I did feel your frustation and anger and pain. But mine has gone.

           After 9/11 my spouse lost his job as many others did. He said he was taking what he put into the unemployment like it was a vacation. He was just hitting 40 and was a little depressed to begin with. He thought We could make it like that. When we lost the house we were renting and had all the bills I had to make the move to my parents house.

           When that happened he was so miserable that he could not do as he pleased in the house since he was not the provider of it and then tried to get a job even at Home Depot.

           I had him go to the school conferences without me so I could do my Avon and look for a job myself. At first he was like “wow you can suport me!” But I couldn’t make enough $ for him to do what had to be done let alone what we wanted. I kept telling him to start his own business with his skills and he tried since he became tired of not having a thing to do without $ other than telling the kids what to do.

           Maybe your husband wants to be home right now, but he will tire of it if he has always had something to do and liked to go out when he wanted. If he likes to be the “man of the house” try swapping with him. Give him your daily duties and you go out for a job. If he is old fasioned then it may hurt him. Some men think that That if thier wife gets a job, when they don’t that the wife will leave.
