While the job sounded very exciting and very tempting for other reasons than the following, unfortunately it didn't offer adequate pay for the drive (92miles one way), the in-house child care program sucked ($250 a week with a 30% employee discount) and paying a friend or family member wasn't going to be all that bad, the pay still wasn't enough. After taxes paying for the cost of gas at it hovering at $4 a gallon and paying for child care (not at the daycare) I estimate to only bring home around or under $100 a week (probably the latter) which honestly isn't worth my time or the drive. We are doing fine now with only one income, it was just needing that break daily from *B* that perked my interest in the position, and having extra money for the holiday I dread that starts with a "C" that is looming closer and closer, and paying off some credit card debts. No fear though I guess we'll stick to the mundane and keep on pedalling along as we have been. Secretly I loving being a SAHM, and would rather do this job any old day any way. (wink, wink.) So, I declined the position graciously and I'm back to being a SAHM.
