  •  making it work here in the burbs (6+ / 0-)

    of chicago on 60-70 grand.  we have two small kids.  we seem to be making it.  currently looking to move - have to unload our house - super cute smaller house in the family circles' best town to raise children in.  we want to move closer to my husbands work and where i work will be closer but lately i have been home with the kids, only working when other docs need some time off.  
    life is complicated.  250,000 seems like a ton of money to us but i can imagine that if we had it it wouldn;t be too hard to blow through it. i don't know if people who make 250,000 are rich or not but i know that you don't have to make it to feel like it.  i have two great kids and a wonderful husband.  lucky girl i am.
