Giving birth, whether naturally or by C-section, takes a toll on a woman’s body and sometimes her mind. Having to go back to work within weeks or 3 months of giving birth does not allow a family the time to adapt and bond with their new addition. Unfortunately, in the United States returning to work within 3 months of having a child is the norm and for most families a must. Other families run into the hard situation where both parent’s need to work to support the family, but child care costs…Continue

I am super glad that I am a woman.
Like most people, I have thought about what life must be like to be the opposite gender (people do think about that, right?) and I have determined that being a guy must be hard. I can't imagine walking around with their equipment all day or having difficulty focusing on…
A few days ago, I posted a link to the amount of money women earn in their jobs compared with men. It was infuriating to see all of that divergence in one big chart.…Continue

My son is in time out.
He is in time out for many reasons which include (but are not limited to), talking back to me, not following directions, yelling and breaking household rules. He may or may not also be in time out because I need a short break from him, as he is having a bad day and driving me crazy and…
For most people, it's because of the car: New tires, a new belt, a broken thing-a-ma-bobber. Whatever the issue, it is not covered by insurance and the out-of-pocket cost is well over $500. And, unfortunately, it is taking us longer to recover from the financial blow to our budget.…Continue

In college I had a roommate that was a history major. I have nothing against history. History is important; we learn from our past; it's good to remember where you've come from. However, her goal in life was to get a job working within airport administration. If you are wondering how a degree in history relates to that goal, then you are not alone.…

My husband and I have always had a dual-income household. We are fortunate to both have jobs that we truly enjoy. There have been a few times in the past where one of us was out of work and financially dependent on the other person, which naturally lead to stress in our relationship. But we got through it (for better or worse, right?) and moved ahead. At no point during those times did one of us consider cheating on the…Continue

I used to make a lot of money, though I didn't realize it at the time. That 20/20 hindsight can really burn some days. I was doing really well for myself and for my family financially, but I wasn't happy. I wasn't in love with my job anymore, and I tried to compensate by spending the money I was making. Writing at Starbucks, yoga, the gym, spas, masks, and spoiling my family. When we found out we were expecting another little one, I decided I needed to make a change. I know…
In the blogging world matters of money are all so very hush hush. I decided it was time for someone to come forward and share what they were earning and how they went about earning money from their blog.
I believe that if we really want to help each other we should become more transparent and give people realistic expectations of what blogging entails and that with a little hard work you can actually make…Continue

I had heard for so long that I should have a will, especially after my divorce, but I kept putting it off, thinking it was too expensive and not really needed. I was young, what could happen? Well, actually, many things could happen. Would you want your children’s future to be chaos because you didn’t want to spend the money? And what if you get too sick to look after them? Then what? Women of divorce, you need a will! Click …Continue
