My Valentine's date came different this year. Instead of the usual romantic date with my hubby, i dated differently.I was with my two tweens (my ten and almost-nine years old daughters).

Weeks ago they asked me if i could let them be in the studio with their friends for some photographs/remembrance. I obliged but i said i had to come with them.

I felt good knowing they really looked forward to that date. It was their first time to went out with their friends on their own. (Cause i just followed 2 hours, after they left their school).

I felt old, too. LOL. I felt too antiquated acting as chaperon to my girls. But it sure made them happy.

So how was your heart's day date?

    Hi Hailey. Belated Happy Valentine's Day! Oh my, it seems children in this generation mature earlier. Times are changing. :) I think it was sweet of you to give them some time to spend with their friends.

    BTW, I have an award for you.

    Hi Hailey.

    Thanks for the visit. Not quite sure which post you were referring to...re: Do they pay well? Is it the post about my Work at home jobs?

    If so, the pay is not much compared to what I'd probably make if I work outside the house...but then again the difference would probably just go to daycare, gas, clothes...ya know...

    Thanks for visiting again...

    I have no idea....oh yeah, we went to dinner, and it's as romantic as dinner with 5 children (4 boy children and a girl) can be.

    Hi Hailey...

    Gotcha. So you are about to become a WAHM like myself, eh?

    The jobs I listed in my entry are the ones I either did or still doing now. Majority of them hire based on the location of the applicant. The only 1 I know that hires outside of the US is the online tutoring gig but I have not done that in a while so I am not really sure what they are looking for now. When I did it, they wanted either an Education degree or some teaching experience.

    I see that you are doing the blogging thing already so that's a good start. If and when I come across something that hire anywhere in the world, I will definitely post it in my blog.

    Feel free to ask if you have anymore questions.

    Thanks and enjoy the weekend with your family!

    Hi Hailey,

    From what I can remember, the one I worked for - Brainfuse - did not require any US accreditation of any kind...but that was in 2001 - 2002. Why not visit their site and try applying...see what they say. No harm in trying di ba? Here's the link.

    I have not had any contact with them in years so I really have no idea how it is working for them now. Goodluck....let me know if you still have some questions.
