This makes it both my blessing and my curse.
Im all about honesty, so I'll keep this real.
This is our dream house!!! No question about it. However that does not mean it doesn't come with its own set of stresses.
This mortgage will be about double what our last one was, and we have more utilities this time around.
Being the nerd means I get excited and terrified as the house continues to become more livable.
Chris and I both work full time, and that is the right thing for us. I have many friends and people I blog stock that are SAHM or WAHM I am neither of those. I am a working mom and I LOVE it!!!
Our budget is alittle less >tight< then others, however we do have the challenge of daycare, long nights and EXHAUSTED parents!!! It is amazing how nice a drive through burger sounds after a 10 hr work day + 2 hr OT and a limited 30 min lunch, and a round trip commute of about 2 hours with 9 hr left in the day, including sleep cooking is NOT high on the priority list....
But, eating out is EXPENSIVE!!!!
This month is my go for it, gung hoe we need to save more money!!!! We need to be prepped and ready for our new mortgage!!
