It’s become obvious that I can’t live, supporting my family on my income. We haven’t started eating our shoes yet. But being single income with two children under two is not working out on private Christian school pay.
I went onto a website that asks for net pay and what your expenses are, it told me there wer NO cities I could live in.
I found out the average teacher pay in the lowest paying state is still about 4000 more than I make (fig from 2004).
So…. what could I do…. Maybe I could give lectures on incompetence. I think I might be an expert.
Krista was musing that we had a photo from Easter: we are nicely dressed, we have a nice looking child, we look happy (not that we’re not), we both are partially finished with Master level degrees.
And we are about (at least) $15,000 dollars a year short of affording housing in our area – if we weren’t buying groceries.
How do normal people get jobs? Oh, right, they don’t major in French.
