I love having my husband here. I really do. And I can't quite understand anyone being bored being home.
Of course we have 4 kids, plenty of activities, and we home school. So not much down time even with him home.
And with the govt giving us unemployment practically forever we could live like this. And with our savings being decent, not great, but decent, we could keep this up for a LOOONG time.
Course if my husband was working 40 hours to bring in the little paycheck, it would suck. But since he is here it is a lovely tradeoff, I can skip eating out for months in return for him around!
Not that he isn't looking, but...did I mention I would love to find an at home income?
Though I am glad that our lifestyle is already more spartan than the average American, it would suck to have to give up everything.
As it is we live rather cheap and only the real extras have to go. My friends who have houses with heat at 75 and oreos with pop for every lunch wonder why we are not crushed with bills.
I did make some laundry soap and give it to a friend to try, dunno if she grasps why 5 for 10 gallons can help me pay my bills, but I hope so. I also promised another friend a bucket of it, and prolly will offer some to a third. It is really easy to make, and honestly amazes us how cheap it is. Wonder if I can get a little under the table business selling the stuff. Charge a dollar for a big bucket of it, and sell to 5 folk I make the price back .
