Lemonade is my 5yo's "treat" drink.

We used to be a big tv family, and now, after a year and a half of antenna tv only (not much signal) and now about 3 months with no tv at all, we don't miss it. It's a little silly, we have a big tv in our living room with just a dvd player and the Wii. It's off most of the time.

I don't know why you are embarrassed about working at Walmart, other than the silly vest they make you wear. My kids and I will be out delivering phone books next week for extra money. If I am supposed to be embarrassed about that, I am not.

I dont think it's uncommon this day in age to wait tables or work any other such job for a few months right after graduating college. Most of the people I know (college and high school friends, my brother, present day colleagues) used this time to job hunt, send out resumes, and interview.

Personally I waited tables for a few months before I got my first real job after graduating college, as did my brother. We both graduated with honors from decent colleges--He, Georgetown, I--Penn State. Ok, his was a little more decent than mine :-)

I freaking love House Hunters. I think I could watch that for a day straight. No joke.

I love it too. I find it so weird how much location matters in the price of housing.

Agreed! It's a real eye opener. DH and I are in the process of buying our first house (closing October 16th or before) and I think that's why the show has piqued our interest so much. It's really interesting to see what we could get for what elsewhere for what we spent here.

I do not think that it is ever uncommon to not get a job right after college graduation. Even in the best of time just because there is this huge influx of college graduate in the spring it does not mean that all companies will be hiring in the spring. They hire when it is best for their companies which may not be at that time.

With some degrees (education for example) you know ahead of time that it will be a few months until you get a job using your degree.

some employers used to purposely plant themselves in the way of college fairs on campuses meaning recruitment for grads (my brother is still with the bank that recruited him on his college campus many years ago,has a very good up that food chain ladder job now).

Plus, if you start teaching school somewhere like NYC, you often live with bunch of room mates and bartend/wait tables on the weekends just to make ends meet.
