We struggle with money most of the time, but DH is home 1 hour for lunch and home by 5pm on the dot. Him and DS and I are all very close and do everything together.
He could probably drive to our closest city and almost double his wage, but it would be a 1 hour commute each way.
I could work full time and double our income, but I would miss my family far too much.
That being said, some days I would love to just be able to go shopping for clothes/new washing machine/ TV and not have to worry about how much I'm spending, and I'd love some savings put aside for emergencies. We do ok though, and once we pay off our large personal loan we will be much more comfortable!
