Woohoo!!! So recently I had been posting about going back to work full time and how I was going to work that out with popping in to take Wesley out, etc. Well, I actually had an interview at a friend's company yesterday and they really wanted me there. So DH and I talked last night and we realized, that even with the pay raise, that it's not going to be worth it to go back full time. I'd take home about $3,200/mo, minus almost $2000 in childcare, leaving $1200... minus $650 car payment.... leaving me around $550/mo after all is said and done. Plus gas, food, etc. It's just not worth it to leave my babies for that. DH does make really good money, but we're not taking his into account because his goes elsewhere as well.
Soo.... I'm going to be a FT stay at home mom! We're going to have to cut corners on our fun spending. I actually got sad that we wouldn't be able to get another puppy when Wesley is 18 months, but he said if that's what I REALLY want then, we'll make it happen. YAY! So.... I'm going to start saving now for Cavy #2! WOOT WOOT! I'm really hoping for a tricolor female. Or are two males good?
Anyway... YAY! I'm just excited about all the possibilities this can have in store for me! I can help fostering, I can work part time somewhere doing something fun, etc.
Ah...... LOVE IT! Just had to share my happiness!
