Hi. I just jumped right in and didn't post an intro so here goes:

I am a PTWOHM married to a FTWOHD. We have one PTSAHC who is in 1st. grade for the other part of her time! We are from the southeast, transplanted from the northeast.

I am from NJ and told DH I could never live in Long Island. His neighbors seemed pretty shallow and never accept a newcomer. They actually had the audacity not to invite me to the annual block party because I wouldn't chip in to rent a dunk tank! I was so glad that after we married, we moved back to my hometown and then DH was transferred and we moved to the southeast. It's such a nicer way of life.

That's horrible. My sister's block has a party every year and they ask for a certain amount to be involved in the whole party.

My in-laws were already chipping in, so why would I have to chip in also? I was a guest at their house, I figured I'd be covered under their money. Don't understand. A few old biddies made a big deal of it. I told DH let's get the heck out of here for the day. Or I'd be sure to take that ball and dunk the heck out of some people there. My neighbors here are so nice. If they see you struggling with a bag, they run out to help. They don't stand at the window and watch. Or if DH and I argue a little too loudly, they are nice enough to not say anything the next day.

That makes no sense. Each household pays an amount to cover the dj, blow ups, pony rides, etc. No one else should have to chip in.
