Thanks everyone, so much. I was nose-diving and now I've pulled up. I am in Rome. The thing is that I have a little son who just started kindergarten and comes home around 3 so I can only manage a part-time job at least until the fall when he can ride the bus to school and back. As everyone would like to do, I need a job that pays decently and has flexible hours. The English teaching sounds good. I have been trying to do editing for the international organizations but so is everyone else in Rome. I should be using my legal skills. The problem here is that there isn't really a good job market and there are lots of expats looking for jobs. But I am hopeful. In the meantime, we have cut our spending to the bone and are only taking day trips as vacation, which is very nice.

I am also starting a business online with a friend of mine to sell lovely antiques and silver pieces that I find in markets and fix up. I am trying to figure out how to sell on e-bay as well.

I'm also thinking of being a tour guide a s I hear they can make good money and I know Rome in my tramping around with the stroller trying to get my son to take a nap.

I would like to lower my interest on my private loans and credit cards, as these rates make it harder to pay and I am adamant about that-I will pay if I make the last payment on my eightieth birthday (which is how if eels right now). I am afraid of the flexible interest rates as you never know what can happen. Any ideas about that or how to lower credit card rates? Thanks so much.
