Finding a job isn't always quick or easy. Let people you are acquainted with know you are looking for a job. Check with your local employment office or workforce office. Watch the ads in the newspaper. In the meantime, if you are worried about what your mother in law thinks, help keep the place you are living clean and orderly and talk to her about your job hunting. Help your husband by not spending unnecessarily and that sort of thing. All mothers in law usually want is to know their child married someone who makes their child happy and is willing to help make that marriage work. She will see that you are trying.
