I feel that way at times Ami, with DH's income being so sporadic with owning his own business, keeping his wholesalers happy paying them, etc. I have mentioned getting an at home transcription job and he just says, with what time?? And that i should be concentrating on making him more efficient in his job, which is easier said then done. Its hard to juggle unsteady/unstable incomes!

Or how much....... Very frustrating. Toughest part for me is I have no where to go with my frustration. He's as frustrated as I am so venting to him serves no purpose. In fact it only makes him feel worse. He's doing what he can to get paid so I just have to sit and take whatever comes. I could get an additional job or find something full time but where does that leave the kids and their activities?

That stinks for your DH. You do the work, you should get paid in timely fashion. It must be frustrating to know the money is coming, but not know when.

Mindy I keep hearing about kale chips and how good they are, can you tell me a recipe? I am trying to expand these kids (and my own) eating habits.

I worked in the preschool program today. My student had a pretty good day overall, but he kept me very busy. I had Homework Club after that. DS had Knowledge Bowl today and basketball practice after that. DS and I went to th grocery store together to pick up a few just in case provisions, and now we're home waiting for the snow to start. DH has a meeting at church, DD is working, and DS and I are eating cheese tortellini and multi grain ciabatta rolls for dinner. I need to go to bed early tonight. I agreed to sub for one of the secretaries at school tomorrow, and she starts work at 7 am. Crossing my fingers for a snow day tomorrow!

We live south of there and neither one of us has any old money to speak of. Dh's dad was in foreign service for the Philippine government. Sounds impressive but unless you're Marcos, not very well paid. My parents were a teacher and a small business owner who spent wisely and were able to send me to an expensive college. When we were both working and had no kids, things were great for us. I'm home with the kids (working part time with toddlers and loving it but not making much) and he's doing IT management consulting and his current client isn't very good at paying his invoices. Their major clients are government agencies that haven't been paying
their bills either. Long story short, he was given this gig with the intention that the guy he's working for would be pushed out and dh would become an employee and take his place. That was 10 months ago... Sigh...

Without seeming too nosey... What does your DH do for work that pay is sporadic?

I live in nannied in Kenilworth one summer during college and everyone I met in the that area was dripping with old family money. I assumed it was the same for the majority of the area.
