OK, so. Minutes after posting that last post about how we’d decided not to homeschool for financial reasons, an exciting possibility for at-home work fell into my lap.
Whether or not this works out, it energized me to ask more questions about my situation, instead of seeing it as this black-or-white choice. Can I find work that is compatible with homeschooling? What else can or should I do for income? What are my options that don’t involve a 40-hr-a-week commitment to being in an office?
I have been pretty burned out on freelance writing for the past year, but I’m starting to get my mojo back with it, and my income is on a gradual upswing as a result. I had all but given up on being able to make the money work AND homeschool my kid. I mean, I had given up. Now I’m hopeful about it, and realize that the thing I need to say to the world right now isn’t “THIS CAN’T WORK AND I’M SAD” but rather “What could help this work?”
So it seems worth asking you, gentle readers, do you have ideas (or actual offers) for work that is compatible with homeschooling?
