Doesn't bother me a bit. We are by no means rich, we haven't taken a vacation in over two years, and when we used to get a once a year vacation it meant 3 nights away someplace we could easily drive to in 4 hours. We eat out or order in pizza about once a month, other than that we only eat at home. My car is 9 years old and makes a funny rattle sound, although I have been assured that it's not causing any damage to my car, and I can drive it this way as long as the rattle doesn't bug me and save myself the $600 to fix the part. We are a single car family living in Los Angeles, a city not known for it's public transportation. And I feel incredibly lucky to have so much. There are so many especially in this current economic climate that are no where near as lucky as we are. I never take the time to think about how someone else could afford or not to afford being a SAHM, why that would be any of my business is beyond me. I know that for me and my family, we are very very lucky.
