I've been lurking on this thread all week trying to decide if I should join. DH & I actually argue over weather we are low income or not. I say we are, he says we aren't. Anyway, after yesterday I decided that this probably is the place for me. We thought we had won a housing lottery for affordable housing, but then found out we will only get it if two other families decline. Also, I had the realization yesterday that I'm officially that tired woman you see on the bus. You know when pre-motherhood you'd see a woman on the bus w/ a kid/kids in-tow and just think she looked drained? Yep, I'm her now. So, all of that was just a really long way to say I think I could really use the support of this thread.
Oh, I'm a SAHM to an 11 month old DD. I live in Boston where everything is ridiculously overpriced. We live a very
simple life, mostly b/c we have to. I'm tempted to complain b/c things have been stressful lately, but I like the gratitude theme so I'll give that a try. For some reason right now I'm feeling really grateful for our health insurance. W/ all of the news about CHIP lately, I'm reminded of how lucky we are to have healthcare. DH's job may not pay so well, but we pay ZERO for our health insurance each month. That really is a great thing.
