you mention you are a graphic designer. good heavens, man, you are in the best position you could possibly be in to work from home. You can talk to your job about telecommuting full or part time. You can get a different job that does allow you to telecommute. You can start building a freelance graphic design business, slowly, part time and gradually build it to where you can let go of your day job. Lots and lots of graphic designers work from home, either for themselves or for a company. You might team up with a freelance PR person, event organizer, marketer or copywriter to work on projects together. Tons of ways you could work this. Forget needing to sell useless tchotchkes on the net! check out sologig.com, or google on "freelance graphic design" to get ideas. There is a great book called "Mompreneurs" (okay, in this case, Dadpreneurs, same idea) that is a lifesaver for the how-tos- of getting started. I am not an experienced homeschooler - just started, more of necessity than choice - but I started a home grant writing business and was surprised to find how many folks out there do it.
One big big big caveat: I had a husband with a regular job with paid sick leave and insurance benefits. If ever I am really truly sick or disabled, his leave will enable him to help out. If I were single, I'd be doing without any insurance at all, and heaven help us if anyone really got sick or hurt. If your job carries the health insurance for your boys, that is a consideration you have to think about and it's a strong argument for telecommuting to a job, rather than going totally self-employed.
