Being a SAHM...

I love being a stay at home Mom. It is so awesome to get to spend all day with the girls. It can be exhausting and trying but is totally worth it! I really love it.

What I don't love is not contributing, not making money. I stopped working a few weeks before Addison was born. Since then things have become very tight money wise. We try to live within a budget, but it's hard with all the medical bills and now Christmas it's just busting at the seams. I really hate to talk about money issues, because really I hate admitting that we have them. Greg is so great at saving and making smart choices, me not so much. In February we find out more about what will be going on with Greg at work. He is hoping to get a promotion, but there are no guarantee's. If it doesn't happen then we will have to reassess if I can continue being a full time stay at home Mom. Fingers crossed February brings good news!


  1. I really hope he gets the promotion you guys want so you can keep being a stay at home mommy with me!! Who else will be so diligent about keeping up our Chipotle Mondays with me?! ;)

  2. You are definitely not alone! Brian is unhappy with his current job and is looking for a new job and, if that doesn't happen, then he's talking about going out on his own. I want him to be happy, but this whole thing scares me to death...esp in these economic times! I'm trying to stay positive and remind myself that things happen for a reason (which I truly believe, but hard to remember during uncertain times). Any time you need someone to vent or cry to I'm here because I have been back and forth between the two a lot lately! Fingers crossed for you guys!
