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?

<<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?). >>

Yet your posts clearly indicate otherwise, they clearly show an obession for money and things.  Why would it be easier and why are you diverting to me instead of the conversation at hand?  

<<That's nice. Again, when was the last time SHE brought her kids on a vacation?>>

Last year and again, what does it have to do with quality of life?

You responded to quality of life statement with the need for real vacactions, even shouting the real.  Do you need read what you respond to or your own posts?  You said the last five years...so what about the other years, why wouldn't you say every year...you know if it's so important that you have to shout it and imply something about families that don't choose to take vacations every year.

<<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. >>

What on earth are you saying here and why?

Actually no, you said they have gone on 5, I wouldn't consider that many.

Sav - For us it's about time too, finding the time when everyone's schedule works is not always easy and get's harder every year.  IME and I know it's your's too, but high school activities really plays a part in the whole equation, for us sports especially consumes a lot of time during the year and in the summer.

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

I like one on one time with each one of my kids but the idea of vacationing only with one has never crossed my mind.  I'm sure it would be cheaper.

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 ...)

My bad then. I don't remember ever hearing about an entire family vacation. Where did you go?
