Do you know any other members here? yes - Kyfirestorm

How many kids? Ages? 3 - boys ages 16 and 9 and a daughter 12

Tell us about yourself. I live in a small town and have made terrible financial decisions alongside my dh for years. We are FP graduates but like some or most people we don't always follow it to the "t"

Welcome to Frugal Village!:apple:
You bus drivers have a special place in my heart, I don't know how you do it. Kids are great for the most part but to drive with all that noise & whatever going on behind you, unbelievable. You must have eyes in the back of your head.;)
Your avatar & name made me smile.

A great big Welcome from this school bus driver in TN!

So how long have you been driving?
Since April 2009 - I never wanted to be a driver. I've watched my brother's wife drive for over 30 years and my mother-in-law just retired after driving 34 years in NJ and my husband's brother's wife is now driving for the past 5 years in NJ. But with 3 kids at home and my mom needing more and more help from me the schedule is perfect - the pay stinks but can't beat the schedule!!

I do feel like I have eyes in the back of my head and I do feel like I must be crazy for doing this (hmm which came first???) And the kids say I'm mean because I make them follow the rules. BOO HOO so sad for them... hehehe NOT!! Just trying to keep them safe.
