In order to support my writing habit, I started a home based business selling jewelry. It's not to bad, considering that my other option was cleaning toilets at the HS.
But every once in a while, I'm forced to drive down one of those street. I gape in wonder at the ENORMOUS houses with their RV and matching pickup, Lexus, manicured lawn, or professionally done X-mas lights and I wonder, "How do they do it?"
I mean, really. My husband and I both have our bachelors. He has a job as an accountant for a local bank, and they treat him well. I sell jewelry on the side. Our home was marketed as a 'starter home'. But bills always manage to crop up that take any extra money we manage to save. Take my $500 dog bill this month. We really need a new car and we're looking at some pretty big medical bills.
So I scratch my head and ask again, "How do they do it?"
