Ah, the plot thickens….
Val, there might be a way for you to keep your nice place.
Marla, this might be your chance to start a business from home (which she could then sell when the baby gets older & end up coming back to Grumble’s).
Just a thought, Norm.
“she could then sell when the baby”
somehow I read it as “she could then sell the baby”…
Makes sense to me… but it’s hard to find a price that people are willing to pay that would offset all the money you’ve already invested in them!
I mean, uh… I… uh… ASSUME that’s the case, at least.
I wouldn’t KNOW or anything.
I’d love to stay home forever, too, if I only could figure out a way to get paid for it…
Oh, by the way kids, it’s only six months until Christmas (somehow I can picture Stuart, back at the store, “tra la la”-ing at that thought…)
The stay-at-home-mom life is rapidly deteriorating as it grows more and more impossible to support families on one income…unless you make at least $80k a year. I hope Marla’s husband makes enough money! Is he still a bartender? Well…Marla was saying how NICE it would be, not that she WOULD do it. Just sad to think about how normal that was for a mother to be a stay-at-home parent when times were way simpler.
It’s too bad she has to return to work. I wonder who’s going to take care of the baby while she’s working?
Her mom lives in the general area. I am sure that Val could use some extra money and then some kind of child care service to pick up the slack here and there.
Marla needs the insurance so she is NOT quitting Grumbels. On a side note: The District manager’s meeting are usually around this time. Hope to see some strips from that.
Actually, with some clever budgeting, you can live on one salary, even one way less than 80K. It is worth it to me to be a stay at home mom. In fact, my going back to work would probably only cover the child care costs. I freely admit, though, it is REALLY hard without health insurance.
The Extreme couponing show leads one to believe that that one can spend very little money on hundreds of dollars of groceries… in the US and some stores at least. Sure it may also take several hours each day to amass such coupons also.
Marla’s going back to work soon? Come on Josh! Don’t buckle under and leave because of Coop’s pranks! Neurotic is thinking otherwise.
So I guess you haven’t forgotten our bet. Oh darn. LOL!
