We closed on our house refinancing this week. It was very easy to do, and it will be nice to have the extra money from the insurance refund. We are going to try to have as much of our debt paid off by the time the baby is born, and we are well on our way. I will try to work as long as I can, and we are starting to "practice" to live without my income.
We put my have started to put my income into savings, and boy, does it build up fast! It's nice to have the money there, but we are sad to know it just has to go to pay off debt! My boss asked me again this week if I will return to work after having the baby. I keep delaying and telling her that I don't know. But I think in the back of her mind, she remembers me commenting about another mom who returned to work when her baby was only six weeks old. I told my boss that I will let her know in plenty of time, and if I do decide to quit, I will make sure to leave plenty of time to train my replacement.
