home business/work from home suggestions?
I currently work as a shipping and receiving supervisor on third shift at a 50 acre major appliance warehouse. I am expecting my first child in April 2012 and my superior has made it quite clear that absence due to pregnancy and in the future bc of my child will not be tolerated. This alone is causing me a great deal of stress and some pregnancy complications. However, id rather be proactive and find a solution rather than dwell on it. After the baby arrives I would like to work days a the the very least but am exploring "at home" options. I am under no illusions that I will be able to make millions from KY computer but some supplemental income would be nice. I have some skills and certifications and broad work experience including: childcare director,catering, clerical skills, phlebotomy, home care and some marketing. I'm also pretty crafty and my friends and family rave about my letter writing/ opinion writing skills. I'm looking for suggestions not snide comments. My fiance's income is more than sufficient for our needs but I do not like to feel dependent or like I'm not contributing in any way. Honestly my income is typically used for pleasure shopping other luxuries or it goes into savings. My main interest in this idea is simply to be able to balance sharing time with our new baby and still feel like a contributing partner in our household. Thanks for reading

Of the things you mention as skills, child care is the only one you could really do from home Catering you could do SOME of the work from home if you got your home able to meet all of the health department rules.
