$500 a month? Honestly I wouldn't take it, given the cost of gas and what-not. Maybe look for a part-time job outside of education that pays more?

Yes, subs and teachers in my district make ok money. It is an extremely high-stress, low-income, inner city school district. They need to pay us more.

knitting, I would understand your husband's viewpoint if you had real little kids, but you don't. Do you know what your combined retirement situation is right now? How much have you paid into social security? I love my husband, and I trust my husband, and we are a team, but I have to make sure my retirement is covered on my own for my own sense of personal security. I'm 41 and just now saving for retirement due to the many years of not working or working very little when my kids were small. So now I'm playing catch-up.

Explain to your husband that money you earn can only help your family, not hurt you all. And stress to him how you will add to retirement money and/or an emergency fund.
