1. How much exercise have you gotten this week so far?

2. Do you get your father and/or the father of your child/ren something for Father's Day?

3. If you were given $10,000 today, what would you do with it?

The word choice is not understood either.

Reminds me of the big/small car debate...

<<Exactly, never said they weren't. We choose to go outside of the country for vacations so, yes, it cost a lot more than just renting a house in Myrtle Beach. >>

Depends on the house in Myrtle Beach.

<p>and not all vacations have to be costly even with alot of people!  I am grateful every day for my wifes $250 timeshare purchase LOL.. it makes a huge difference in our ability to travel and it's so nice to go places where we have room to spread out (and more importantly where the teenage girl has her own bathroom LOL ) but none of our trips cost "a fortune" for sure</p>

I agree and you can't put a price on the memories!

<<Umm...maybe because it takes MONEY to go on vacations. How far have you and your children ever traveled? Don't you just vacation in your own state and maybe one away? >>

Why are you keeping score again?  I mean based on your posts you only go on one a year and your children aren't even invited this year.

"With 7 people it must cost a FORTUNE" Aren't you the one who was commenting about money not being everything? How many times are you going to bring it up in reference to vacations?

You could always go on a cruise, they aren't that expensive for the most part...unless you go to Europe.  I remember a poster from awhile back...hazel something talkign about how inexpensive cruises are and the "deals" that could be had it one just looked.

Plus given the track record of cruises lately, they must be having fire sales to get people on board!  I can't imagine anyone having to pay full brochure price for any cruise line, lol.

What I find interesting is that you wait for someone else to describe "your" area, you can't do it yourself and when "I" define that area as walking and short mileage that you described, you toss out that definition and create your own from fiction.  

I would agree, your expereinces seem very limited.

That's interesting, I think you are totally describing yourself and not another.

<< just did, read above.  I find it fascinating this circle answer that you have, you just can't answer the question, you have to redirect and divert.  Totally fascinating behavior.

If you are considering the "area" ONLY that I can walk then ABSOLUTELY not. >

Well no, that is not what I'm considering the "area" since I clearly said differently but hey....don't let what I actually said change this discussion, lol.

"If you're attempting to discomfit me" ----------- Grapthar, careful with the unusual words. Next you will be told that your grammar [sic] is bad.
