To work or not to work?

A few weeks ago, I’d made the decision to just stay at home and do school full-time in Michigan. I’m still wavering with the idea of working, because I know that our bank accounts are pretty dry and it’s not going to get better anytime soon. So I was looking online this morning, and found this job that I want. This is the type of job that will get me out of bed in the morning!!! I applied, but I’m not really hopeful (It required a bachelor’s degree plus experience) I don’t know the pay either, but I have a feeling it’s pretty commensurate with what I made in Cali.
