I can lol. I stay in a small town in Texas. 2 bedroom aprmt for $425 a month. My dh just got hired at the mines and will be working mon-fri, 8am-8pm and making 16.35 an hour for the 1st 6 months then it will go up. We calculated that he will be bringing home about $900 a week. He dont need insurance cause I have him on mines.Im just so excited. WE've pretty much been poor.. as in barely making it. Never ever having any money left over. Always having to borrow money. Now we're more than good. I'm just so happy right now.

We have before and even less. Right now though no we wouldn't be able to make it with that amount of money. Our rent alone is $1300 a month plus two care payments.

If we had to, maybe. But do we want to? Nope. Not a chance

We'll be able to save now. We couldn't before cause we could barely afford to pay the bills after dh got fired in 2009. He couldn't find a good job for anything. He applied for the mines 2 years ago but they hire by the list. They just got to him last month.

Maybe, idk. We own everything outright so...probably. Our savings, retirement and college fund would suffer though. Lol
