Yep. Don't think a lot of thought and planning hasn't gone into it, but you don't know the state of finance in our household, etc, so for you passing on a $40k job opportunity might be an awful idea but I am fortunate enough to be in a position where that isn't necessary due to excellent foresight and discipline.
Ultimately, the decision to retake is the big one.
are you saying we don't have excellent foresight and discipline because we wouldn't pass up a $40K job.....?
No offense but my family is very well off and I don’t need to work…my parents would support me if I wanted them to, but I like paying for myself because it gives me a sense of accomplishment and pride. I took a year off not because I didn’t have foresight but because I felt I needed a break. I CHOSE to do everything I am currently doing and I’m not stuck in a minimum wage job, so what you said is kindof insulting. I don't know if you meant it like that, but that's how it came off.
No, that's not at all what I'm saying. I'm saying that for me, I am happy I don't need to work and I owe it to the fact that my husband and I planned well and made good decisions, that's all. It does not bear witness whatsoever to YOUR decision(s). At all. Not a judgment as much of an observation of my own life.
This is a really trying time for everyone here, so I do apologize for coming across like a pretentious bitch, because I honestly did not mean to at all. Sorry to have offended.
