How do I Start over and get a new job?

well lets see.. I worked some fast food and cashier jobs when I was a teenager living at home. Then after I turned 18 I got a job at a sewing factory (wasn't for me) cuz I only lasted 3 months. So I went to another factory and worked there for about 4 years until after I got married and had 2 children. My oldest is in school and my youngest is still at home. But this setting at home making no money is getting old. So I am looking to go back to work but I really don't wanna go back to doing any of other the jobs I have already done. I would like to work in an office or something of the sort. I would like to work morning to around 5'ish. I only have a high school diploma. So would I need to go to college or is there any jobs like the ones I mentioned that only require a high school diploma?
