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?

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

Quality, not quantity. 9.

9, week long vacations. If you are speaking about going to an amusement park for a day or the beach for the day, etc. then the number will be a lot more.

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

Yep but they are not like a relaxed, no other things involved, vacation.

Ah..doublespeak comes out.  What makes yours quality and someone else's quantity?   Well, except of course for your negative judgments, assumptions and lack of anything supportive other than your comment of a REAL vaction....which you still haven't answered.  LoL

Well, I guess I'm sorry that you don't have relaxing times in the evening or on the weekends but why would you assume that others do not have that kind of time in their family?  

I love our evenings and weekends, especially in the summer and fall.  They are different than vacations but not in a negative way, just a different type of memory.

Relaxing at home (where there are other things that can potentially get in the way) and relaxing on vacation are 2 different thing, IMO.

That is nice. I enjoy my evenings and weekends too but again, IMO, they are much different than a vacation.

<<Relaxing at home (where there are other things that can potentially get in the way) and relaxing on vacation are 2 different thing, IMO.>>

I mostly agree but that doesn't prevent making memories, why would it? 

<<That is nice. I enjoy my evenings and weekends too but again, IMO, they are much different than a vacation.>>

Well yes, but again that difference doesn't prevent one from making memories.  I would tell you some of my best childhood memories or a mix of vacations and time spent at home or with friends....I know my kids would say the same thing.  

Why does one need what you believe to be a real vacation (whatever that is, since you still haven't defined that term) to make memories?  That seems so limited for you and your kids.
