Never enough time or $ now.
DW and I have talked about trying to take up golf together. We've thought that it could be a fun way to spend the afternoon together. Lack of funds, time, babysitters and the realization that we are both very competitive and that we don't need a hobby that pits us against each other has kept this at the "wouldn't it be neat when we get older" idea stage.

I don't fight fair. If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck. Let's just say my home is well defended...being named in specific threats will do that to you.

They make a fine impact weapon....and bayonets are fun

Down grading to studio this trip also, and doing it with some trepidation.

We're doing a studio for our trip as well. With 3 adults and 2 kids!

I know we're nuts....but we keep telling ourselves that we're not in our room that much.

Plus both kids are younger than 5.

Wish us luck!

It sounds like it's gonna be a fun trip. Less space just makes you a tighter knit family.
Math don't lie.

DW used to bregrudging come out for a round with me once in a while. She never really liked golf, but enjoyed being outside in the fresh air and (possibly) spending time with me. As soon as DD came along, she happily stored her clubs in the deepest, darkest corner of the basement and informed me that she couldn't go anymore because someone had to watch the kids.

My brother passed on a bit of wisdom the other day:
The most important rule in a gunfight is: Always win - cheat if necessary.

My wife has gotten a few threats as a juvenile social worker - terminating parent's rights tends to anger some people. This is one of the reasons she transferred to a program where parents are there voluntarily.

One bedroom are so nice because of the kitchen and washer/dryer. But a studio is still better than a regular hotel room.

Good luck! Where are you staying? Are you in one of the rooms "designed" for 5, ore are you in a standard 4-sleeper room with a 5th person?
EDIT: I see by your ticker it's BLT and a 5 person room. Still, good luck.

He went on to tell us that if we were in a fight for our lives and the only thing we could get our hands on was a brick, guess what we just became "certified" in? Brick defense tactics---such as bashing the bad guy with the brick until he lets go

I haven't forgotten that one....


In a gun fight, you always cheat--if you plan to win

I'm not going to challenge you if you want to second your own thing particularly given the topic.

This is absolutely as useful in business as it is in a physical confrontation

I'll THIRD that then.

We can move my third to a second if the committe doesn't accept Fed's second on his own concept.
