We have been looking at homes that would be a stretch for us to buy and would make me depressed to live in them. Although, they are in great areas with great schools through high school, they need a lot of work. I want to get to a place where I could work part time once LO goes to school as I want to pick her up from school and help her with her homework. We have decided to look at better homes with great elementary schools and not worry right now about junior high and high school in our "B" locations. Our marriage doesn't need the stress of the larger mortgage.
This is also the part where I throw in
The "Did you have your son call to tell me that I am no longer the beneficiary, hahahha, of all the things this one will definitely be mentioned in your eulogy," question was mentioned, he discussed some other decisions he had made. He feels that his other children (healthy males) have more of a "need" than me. I REPEAT, I am not someone that cares what other people want to do with their assets. Money does and will divide people, it is everyone's personal decision. But a small part of me was a little curious as to the why? Is it being female and I have a husband? Is it my career? What makes me not needy?
