ChaCha, staying at home, and where are my options!?

Yesterday I signed up to be a ChaCha guide and today I finished the final test, the readiness test. I'm crossing my fingers that I pass! I could sure use some extra money, and it seems like a decent way to do that. I realize I won't be making all that much, but some stay at home moms have told me they make about $500 a month doing it for about 4 or 5 hours a day. That would be totally fine with me! I'm on the internet a lot anyway during the day, so I figure I might as well get paid for it. I'm currently bringing in $0 a week, $125 a week would pay for groceries, cell phone, gas, and electric bills. It will be nice to have some extra money so I have something in my account too, in case I need it. The email they sent when I completed the last test said that I will be reviewed and graded within 2-4 days, so I should know by the end of the week, and then if i'm in I can start making some money!

I re-listed the boots I am selling on ebay. check them out! I listed them with the reserve kind of high last time, so I lowered it a LOT this time, hopefully they will sell, then I can also put that money towards stuff we need!

I miss working sometimes. But other times I don't. It's kind of nice having time to myself at home right now because I know that soon I won't have that anymore. This gives me time to do things that I need to do or want to do, do stuff around the house. It's also taught me how to not need much money. I took a huge pay cut when I became unemployed. Huge. I went from money to pay bills, rent, buy food, go out, go shopping sometimes to $0. It was totally hard at first, but I've gotten used to it. Luckily I don't live in an apartment where I have to pay rent anymore, and Jason takes care of the mortgage, which is wonderful. When I have some money I pitch in for bills and stuff of course, but I also do all of the laundry, cleaning, dishes, re-arranging. I'm just saying this because I am glad I have already transitioned into stay at home mom mode. If I had to do it right when the baby was born it would be a lot harder, and I think it would be a lot more stressful. We aren't rich by any means, and we struggle a little sometimes on just Jason's salary, but we always make ends meet.

Is the blogger create an entry messed up for anyone else? A lot of my little icons for things like adding pictures and formatting text is gone, where did it go? Do I have to change it to a different format or something? It's like it went back in time!

I have considered chacha on and off. I'd be really interested in hearing your thoughts about it now that it's been a year--are you still doing it? Does it still pay?
