Life doesn't suck as much as I thought Thursday
Since becoming a SAHM I've had a hard time adjusting to the lack of income, grown up time and the ability just to do some things by myself. I used to be able to go to the mall and buy whatever caught my eye. I used to be able to buy a new car every two years. I used to be able to buy department store makeup and not blink an eye at dropping $100+ for a cut and color.
Now, I color my hair at home, rarely buy new clothes for myself and makeup comes from CVS (love my ECB's!). But what I've lost in material things I've gained in happiness.
I have the opportunity to stay at home with my favorite girls and enjoy special moments with them. I have the opportunity to go back to school to complete my degree in education. I've even still gotten a new car. I have a nice house in a nice neighborhood with nice neighbors. Nice huh? I have friends who care, inlaws that help us when we need it and the most awesome parents a girl could ask for. I have a close relationship with my brothers and my sister and their kids. I have a husband who works his butt off at an ungrateful job so that his wife can stay home with the kids and go to school.
I guess when I really think about it, life doesn't suck after all!
