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 love being "forced" to eat all of our meals out.  We've "had" a full kitchen, but didn't use the stove, oven.  Smile

Yeah, that is nice. No cooking, cleaning, laundry, phone calls, someone coming over, homework, work things, etc, etc, etc.

<<Maybe the vacations have not "stuck" with them then. Maybe YOU enjoy them more then they do. >>

No, there is not basis in my comments for you to make such rude suggestion.  I think it's quite nice that their family life means that much to them that they enjoy our traditions and rituals and their memories are not limited to a vacation week a year.  Spring, there are 52 weeks in a year, you do the math.

<<So you have taken those kids on vacations too?>>

Yes, at times and my kids have gone with other families at times.

<<Then what are you trying to say with your comments about going away memories are a lot more than daily memories?  Or your vacation memories are a lot more than daily memories?  You made these types of comments to sav and myself....

Nope and I never said that either. Just the other night we all sat down and played card games. The next night a board game. We are always doing things at home too to make memories but, again, it is easier to have that relaxing, no other responsibilities that come along, time, on a vacation, away from home.>>

Well that's nice but doesn't answer the question.  What are you trying to say to sav an myself with your comments about vacation memories being more than daily memories?

So they want to go back again and again to the vacations you take them on?

<<So you have taken those kids on vacations too?>>

Yes, at times and my kids have gone with other families at times.

That is great. I guess those are the weekend vacations you have spoken about.

<<It was a question, based on your many comments to save about taking or not taking a real vacation.  You have refused to answer what a real vacation is and instead of tap danced around and talked in circles.  I'm just trying to figure out what the heck you meant by a real vacation in regards to quality of life.  

I did answer. Please go back and re-read.>>

Yes, you finally answered what you thought a real vacation was, but you still haven't answered how it relates to quality of life, since that was your response to savs comments about quality of life.

<<It's not my defintion, you used it in a comment to sav as a response to quality of life and I'm just trying to figure out what you meant.  Now that you have finally answered the question, how does it relate to sav's comment of quality of life?

Again, if Sav is speaking of going to an amusement park for the day then, yes, we have been on a TON of vacations. >>

Again, that's nice for you but still doesn't answer the question about quality of life.  What does your comment about a real vacation have to do with savs comment about quality of life?

Why can't you just relax and be in the moment at home?

Eating out every meal gets old to me....but then again, I love to cook!

Well since "I" never said anything about "quality of life", I can't debate it.

We really have different types of vactions!  Beach house vacations require cleaning, laundry (beach towels!) and all kinds of people coming in and out...it's a blast.  OH and there is nothing better than cooking the shrimp, crab or fish you caught that morning!  Yum!
