Re: How do people live here?!

It is so nice to hear from some other Texans! I was speaking with my husband just last night about how low the COLA is in Texas. I think it would be just as much of a financial shock to move to LA or New York as to CH.

I often think that our kids are raised with a little too much abundance and the "keeping up with the Jones" is almost ridiculous. I've just shared my decision with friends that I am only going to have family birthday parties from here on out. No more spending upwards of 500 dollars and inviting every kid in the neighborhood to celebrate someone turning two. You wouldn't believe the looks of shock and disbelief I received!

How many Swiss would be shocked to know that we actually own two refrigerators!
