Hi, my name is Barbara, I'm 30 years old and I'm a work at home mom. My husband John and I have been married for 4 years and we have a 15 month old, Gabe. You'll see Gabe in almost every layout I create. We currently are living in Kentucky but will be moving back to Connecticut within the next few months.

I absolutely love digital scrapbooking and would simply rather scrapbook than work, but I gotta squeeze work into the schedule sometimes. I've never done paper and glue type scrapbooking and I have only been created digi scrap layouts for about 4 months.

I look forward to getting to know everyone!

Welcome,

I always say it would be great to work from home, but then I wonder if I would actually have the disipline to get any work done.

Somedays are more challenging than others! I just hate working from home because my MIL is with me all day long. I just want to scream. She could drive a crazy person insane.

You are very cute> Does your MIL keep Gabe or why is she there all day?

She's with us because she is completely unable to manage her money and make it on her own..well that's part of it! My husband is an only child and his mom has no one else in the country (she's from Argentina) and when we moved to KY my husband gave her the option of coming with us (we discussed it first) or staying in CT...well of course she chose to move with us and live with us because of the first sentence. She really only helps with Gabe for a few hours a day...other than that he's with me (and my husband now since he was laid off on 9/2). She's the most annoying person you would ever meet. When we move back to CT, she'll still be living with us but we are getting a house with in-law living so she'll have her own "apartment" sans rent. You'd think she be more helpful living with us free of charge, but she's not. All she does it watch TV ALLLLLLLLL day long. If I lived with someone for free, used their car and didn't pay a dime for anything I'd clean their house top to bottom. I swear she is the reason I am fat. She stresses me out and I eat...if I don't eat I will hurt her. :angelnot: I do yell at her but with the language barrier it often doesn't help.

Welcome Barbara! So glad to see you over here! Sorry it has taken me so long to welcome you. I am slowly going through all the posts.
I hear ya on the MIL front. My MIL does not live with us but I did live with her for about 6 months after John and I got married. She was ok then but since we moved out she snapped and has gone crazy. She is Bi Polar and her last child moving out (John is the youngest) really made her snap. She was crazy all through John's childhood but he always knew how to settle her down and make her happy. Now that he doesn't live there anymore there is no hope for her. I am just glad she doesn't live with us, and she never will. I would rather go deep into debt paying for assisted living for her first.
