[ - ] S/o of would you work if DH made 2.5 post. Holy crap. I feel so poor. Is everyone on here rich? I feel very happy and satisfied and well, actually sort of wealthy at times and HHI is only 450k. I know in NYC that doesn't make us rich but we have decent but modest apartment, kids in good public schools and we travel and go to nice dinners whenever we'd like, plus we manage to save.

[ - ] Ok, I was a really big bitch tonight. We're with my in laws and they, being their usual lovely selves, invited over my husband's girlfriend from when he was young (he dated her on an off when we were in boarding school, he obviously wasn't trying to marry her). The woman asked me about my profession, I told her, and she kind of went, "Oh, really? I'm a laaaawyer," and my mother in law went, "Yes, 'Lauren' was always so smart and so pretty, everybody expected them to get married, but oh well, just think if (my name)'s mother had never passed she would have never applied to boarding school and you two might be married, the world is so funny that way," and then I said, "Yeah, well, I doubt Lauren would have Mark pay your bills. And for the record, I got my own ass into (HYP) and hell, I'm more independently successful than any of your children, DH was a fluke and you can act like he's this high and mighty perfect son because you gave birth to him, but really he's fucking lucky that he made it out from all this crazy and he's lucky to have me because I'm not a whiny old leech." 26 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
