How does one go about looking for a job when one hasn't had "a job" in almost twenty years? Yes, I've worked, as a homemaker, homeschooler, and home manager; a freelance writer and content creator. I've worked but I haven't had a job - the kind where someone hires you, you show up, do work according to their specifications, and get paid - since before my kids were born.

Late 2017 we faced the inescapable reality that we needed a more regular and predictable flow of income. We needed to be able to count on a pay check, not the whims of clients who did or did not pay on time. We needed more money for the stage of life we're in. And we were faced with a big tax bill that Damien's work alone was unable to pay. It was super stressful and it was a situation that pushed both Damien and I into new employment.
