I think when you work inside the home, there is more to do than if you work outside the home. Now, let me clarify myself. When I get up my wheels are turning, when I go to bed my wheels are turning. Perhaps (and No I absolutely do not want to) if I worked outside of it I would not see every little thing that needs to be done and think of a million others as well. I would think about getting up and going to work and probably not so much inside the home.
No matter how stressed, busy or whatever I am, I would not ever change my life. I LOVE it! I have a wonderful hubby that works his hands to the bone everyday to make sure that our boys and I have what we need and doesn't want me to have to work.
We are 32 and 31 and we own our home (it is 5 years old) outright. I drive a 2006 Dodge Durango and he has a 1999 Chevy pick-up. They are paid for as well. We owe less than $6000 to debtors (mainly from our twins' births). We have paid $28,000 out of pocket. That is NOT a lot compared to the total of $1.25 million. Yes, praise God insurance paid for the rest. Okay, now back to the subject at hand.........
We do NOT use credit at all. We did not pay for our home and Durango all by ourselves (thank you Mother and Daddy!) however, we work hard and it pays off. We are quite blessed. We are working hard to finish paying off our debts.
I will go back to work this summer on the farm (where we live) fulltime. The boys and my Mother's helper with me though. It is only seasonal. Then my mix business starts up in the fall. I do this out of my home. I get to be with my boys all of the time and would not change it!
I also make contributions by shopping smart. That is for another post.
Enough for now. I'll save the rest for another. Have a blessed Friday!
