Moving forward

I'm happy to report that since my last blog post, DH is back at work. The whole debacle was really ridiculous, but I'm glad things got sorted out. He did miss out on an opportunity while he was on forced leave, which really sucks, and really wasn't fair, but at the end of the day, he's employed and that's what matters, we'll go from there.

After this whole job thing, we've been taking a much closer look at our budgeting and our plans for the future. We want to have a second child, but it would mean another 3 years of daycare costs and little breathing room. We're trying to decide whether we just suck it up and live with the tight budget, or sell our house and move in to something cheaper that would give us more flexibility. It's a tough decision, as I love where we are now, but I'd also like to be able to worry less about the financial aspects of life. Ideally, we need to make a decision before DD starts school in 2016, so we have some time, and no baby #2 would be in daycare before DD was out. 2 kids in full time daycare? Nope!

Anyway, just wanted to post a brief update to my last post. Things are a lot less stressful at the moment, which is really really nice.
