Well, I do both… I have a full time job, and when I’m not at work I cook, clean and look after the kids. And guess which is harder work? Yep: the kids. I have a huge respect for people who look after their kids full time, because I find evenings and weekends absolutely exhausting. Working in a job is so much easier than looking after kids.

Several people have suggested to me that I might have an easier life if I gave up work or worked part time. I disagree. If I didn’t go out to work I would be spending much more time looking after kids and I’d be even more tired.

And I find it funny that no one suggests my husband would find life easier if he gave up work or worked part time…

Don’t get me wrong, I love spending time with the kids. But it’s just so tiring!

It sounds as if you’re finding the process of looking for a new job very stressful, especially after your HR experiences you mentioned in an earlier thread. But if you’ve always found work challenging and enjoyable, I’m sure you will be able to get that experience back.

On the other hand, if you feel you need a big change in your life, you could stop work and do some more studying, perhaps in a completely different field, just to broaden your horizons. I think you’d probably be quite bored if you gave up work to stay home and do nothing…But if it’s what you really want, maybe you could give it a try.
