Who's here? Would love to see some old regulars check-in and any lurkers let us know you're out there!

I'm Kelly, the CL of Frugal Families board. My family and I are in the metro St. Louis, MO area.

I have been on and off on iVillage boards for a few years. I have been lurking lately on this board to get back on track on being frugal. I has been a couple of years since I last posted.

I haven't been around much at all, as it's been easier to pretend I was doing well instead of facing my big ugly truth. Actually, we're limping along...

Anyway, I'm Kay, and I live in suburban Chicago with my hubby, 2 kids, dog and cat.

Dh is still working though not always 40 hrs. Lately it's been 32-40, but this week they're only scheduled to do Mon. & Wed. That has happened in the past but then they end up working an extra day or 2. Hoping that happens again! Seems to always work out though as just last night someone called about a side job.

I'm also subbing again this year. Not real busy yet, but things have been starting to pick up. I'm ok w/2-3 days per week. That gives me time to get my stuff done around the house. I'm also still teaching fitness classes 2 nights/wk at our comm. college and also @ the Y on Thurs. nights.

So we're doing ok, Just keeping my fingers crossed and praying that this winter isn't too slow for dh. You know how that goes!

I'm still around from time to time--I check back in for old time's sake, but I haven't really been getting much out of the board for a while now (and can I just say ick to this new format?

Laura here... still lurking around once in a while, but haven't posted in a loooong time. We're limping along as well... I lost my job over the summer and am trying to struggle through just as a realtor in this nasty real estate market. We refinanced our mortgage to free up about $350 a month to help pay off the bills we've slowly racked up, so hoping that will help.

Sorry to hear about your job, Laura. Was that the librarian thing (or something similar??) at your ds's school? Good luck on the *limping*! BTDT and still doing it at times now w/dh taking a lower paying job after being unemployed for 18 mo. ((HUGS))

I'm still here. I'm Heather from Ohio. I was laid off in September, but we're doing okay since we have daycare savings on top of unemployment benefits. So far, so good. I'm trying to spend my extra free time getting some random things done around the house as well as working a little harder on being frugal!
