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?

Over on the other thread.  Jams compared the two salaries stating that she knew your salary and I asked you if she did and you answered.  Change the comments to 50 for each page and read pages 20-21 where it takes multiple posts for you to answer, but you finally did.

<<But we HAVE spoken finances and not once and at least once online. Laughing>>

So curious, which was the truth...

And? For the umpteenth time, she knows MY salary, NOT my dh's WHICH would be my HHI.

1. You are wrong. I have taken my kids on vacations.

My bad then. When was the last time you all went on a vacation, together, as a family?

2. More money woldn't necessarily equate to more vacations. Time is as much of a factor as money is for us - in fact, more.

Maybe not if you are not used to do it on a yearly basis anyway. I am SURE it could help in other areas. 

3. The law doesn't determine child support. The law provides guidelines, but the bottom line is determined jointly by me and xh.  The court simply approves our agreement. 

Why are you not going for as much as you can? These ARE your children and if you don't need the money NOW to raise them, you COULD save it for the future.

And of course logic would imply easily that there are also extra expenses going out, with two households.

We are talking about ONE household having 3 sources of money coming in.

With grandma? not with you?     wow. what doublespeak.

Nope, no "doublespeak". I have said we have ALL gone on many vacations together before. This year is a special one and we are going on a vacation alone and they will have one with their grandmother.

If vacation with a grandparent count, why on earth wouldn't vacation with a parent count?  

Again, this is a special year, every other has been FAMILY vacations.

<p style="font-size:13px">That didn't answer either question.  What does a vacation have to do with quality of life and do you even know what it means, because quite frankly it clearly sounds like you don't. <strong> But yes, I get that you are obessed with money, that is clear.</strong></p><p style="font-size:13px">lol. No, not obsessed by money. Just smart enough to know that it is needed in life. I guess it was much easier for you, marrying an older man who already had a home (paid off or almost paid off, right?). </p><p style="font-size:13px">I know sav, personally know her and if anyone has quality of life, it's her family.  They are a great family, with loads of wonderful and personal experiences and for you to claim otherwise based on your obession with things and money is quite frankly....rude and well, not based in facts or reality.</p><p style="font-size:13px"><strong>That's nice. Again, when was the last time SHE brought her kids on a vacation?</strong></p>

Can you not read? I took The Boy on a vacation a  year ago. And the whole family on one a year or two before that.  And, I'll add now, The Girl and I did a vacation a year or two before that. (I don't remember exact years ...)

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. 

I am interested in vacations. I'm also interested in just daily life with my kids.

He wasn't makeing that amount when we were married.   I'm not certain what he makes now. That's a guess. CS is currently based on our respective 2003 incomes.

Because, for the 208947th time. It's not all about the money.

...and yet you said "I don't even tell my salary to family and friends as since it is not public and IS out there, there is no reason for anyone to know my personal business. "  

Notice, you said "my salary" not HHI or dh's salary, but "my salary".   Are you changing the definition of "my salary" to mean something else to support your double speak here?  So either you don't consider Jams a friend, you have found a reason for someone to know your personal business or you are lying to fit the conversation.  My vote is for number 3, way more common.  :)
