New Blog

I started a new blog, it's about simple living. Here it is:

Let me know what you think.

Not sure what this means for my LJ. I'm not ready to call it quits, but I'll be posting less frequently.

oh man, sorry i missed that post when you originally wrote it! i went through a period of not readying LJ this summer, and i think i missed it.

actually, i think someone staying at home makes even more sense for lower income families (and you would probably actually see more moms at home in that bracket), because even that low $11k that alexis cited on facebook is equivalent to after-tax minimum wage for a 40 hour workweek. so unless a mom can bring in much more than that, it REALLY doesn't work out. i don't think we could justify the cost at all, so in some ways our "decision" to watch rusty ourselves is a de facto financial one, even though i feel good about it for a million of other ones. from my calculations, it's really only the middle class or wealthy who can truly afford child care (especially good child care).

You're right, I had it backwards.
