Why is your job an ideal one?
b.  What is the ideal job and why if you are not there?

What are you looking forward to?

Where do you see yourself five years from now?  Ten (if you can project that far ahead, Lol!)?

Bonus:  Do you like the name George?

Vacations have to be a week to count in springy/hazel/kickboxing world?

Where did I say that? I simply asked if you went there for a week? You consider a day trip to an amusement park a vacation?

And of course daily life is different than vacations.  No one said anything to the contrary.   Yes, vacations provide great memories. Daily life does so as well. 

Daily life when your parents are working all day and you are at school and work and with friends?

Given the impositions about movies and music too I'm not real convinced that everyday memories will be kid friendly ones....

It's been established over the years that more than one income is necessary to afford common expenses and debts.  .  >>

Really, that's news to me....what do you consider common expenses and debts that your family needs two incomes to afford?

Why would you believe it's about money?

<<We went to Six Flags.  It was a blast.  And you know what? I don't tell you everything. Contrary to what you might want, you're not important enough in my life for me to tell you a whole lot. You really know very little of my life. 

My bad. Didn't know you took a week to do this.>>

What does the time frame of aa week have to do with anything?  

<<Daily life is much different than vacations. I think vacations give lots of great memories for the kids to have forever. >>

I agree but I also think daily life does the same thing.  Great memories can be made anywhere.

I still don't consider that many.  How many total family vacations has your family gone on in the last 15 years?

Not everyone works all day, do you not spend time in the evenings and on weekends together?
