Rocky and I sat down and re-evaluated our financial situation. Rocky said, "What's the point of working now? We aren't going to pay for 2 in daycare. The car industry is dead, managing someone else's sewing store isn't going to pay as much as your mom's store, so you are going to have to start all over in a different field. Just stay home. We can afford this, we can do this." Rocky was pretty heavy into his addiction so I thought he was off his rocker!
But when I looked at the finances, I realized we COULD do this. I COULD stay at home. But there was going to be A LOT of sacrifices. From then, until now, all we have done is continue to sacrifice so that I can stay home. Sometimes I believe my job title should be described as "she who stretches the dollar and beyond." Even with purchasing a new home, and having not 1, but 2 children to feed, we have continued to spend less and stretch our money further. I look back and feel embarassed for all of the money that we threw away on 2 incomes, and had still managed to be broke.

tiny budget. THIS makes me feel good about my job performance.

old man across the street died. One of Rocky's co-workers donated the armoire to us when he
heard I was trying to open a business.
