Hey, I know I told you gals before in a previous post that I really enjoy this thread, I think of us as a "tribe" if you will.
I can tell already that we come from many diverse backgrounds, religions, home arrangements etc. A true microcosm of MDC actually!
I would really like to stick around and follow this thread month to month for at least a year while we are doing TTMM. Kind of like a DDC (due date club).
So can we get to know one another a little bit better? And when checking in at the beginning of each month maybe do a little refresher for other folks lurking/joining us?
I think we all have a unique perspective on finance that has some differences depending on whether we are frugal by choice, frugal by circumstance, married, TTC, have a passel of kids
, but I truly think we can stick together and support one another while we are working on living like no one else!
I'll go first....
I'm Jessica in Iowa. Married to a self employed music instructor. We have 3 boys ages 9, 3, and 1.
I am currently a SAHM but I am a registered nurse, been a birth doula for 9 years, childbirth educator, etc. etc. I
We read TTMM in October and then started putting it into practice in November. So we are really still new at it, but we had AMAZING results right away that has really helped us to want to stay on target.
That and you guys, you have helped more than you know. We do have some friends IRL that don't "get it" or downright make fun of us.
That tells me we are doing the right thing!
I would like to find out a little bit more about anyone that wants to share a bit.
