Stuck Between A Rock and a Hard Place by inkstainedthumb

This is something of a rant. Its how I'm doing right now. Things haven't been going to well recently. Finances have been a huge challenge right now for my husband and me. I'm not working at the moment and have been passively looking for work. We have a son who isn't yet two and the idea of sending him to daycare really weighs heavy on me. If we sent him to daycare, so I could work, a huge chunk of my wage will to on his daycare fees. It means that I'd have to work full time in a 9-5 job. My education, or lack there of, doesn't allow me to work in anything higher than minimum wage jobs, so I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place. Get a job in a shop (working in a restaurant or pub is out the question due to the hours) and spend all my wage on my son's childcare or keep things as they are. My family live overseas and my husband's live in another part of the country so I can't rely on them for help. Sad to say that hubby can't be relied on to look after the little one for more than an hour or two. So yeah, I'm feeling lost and alone. I don't know what to do or how to change the situation I'm in.
