Child swap is the best kept 'secret' It's like getting an 'old' school FP!

OK, this is killing me as I am the grandchild of a 2nd grade teacher and got beat every time I spelled something wrong. This is about the 5th post. No offense, but its BAKING not backing, unless I am missing something. Sorry, I had to vent.

On the positive side, when you make the jump sign me up as the first investor in the business!

I already miss Disney.
I guess you can wish he drops out after his sophomore year.

This still leaves the Avengers and Star Wars characters for their own theme park...
We have been to Disney 9 (or so) times since 2008 in Feb, March Oct nov & Dec. The Backlot tour was closed every time. We have never rode it. I say knock it down TODAY!

well...I just got home around an hour or so ago. Was all set to be released around 10:30 or so, no issues. While answering the nurse's questions mentioned that for a brief minute, there was a slight "feeling"/pressure over the left chest. Immediatelty, more tests were ordered, then re-ordered. Basicly laid there in a bed for 7 hours untill I was cleared, with only a couple of small glasses of juice.
Man, I hope you feel better!

The Canadians must be running out of penguins if they are recruiting the Puffins and Razorbacks! Air attack forces to support the ground troops! Scramble the jets and get them to Minnesota to repel the invasion!

Was she there today or still avoiding Philip? Will Philip summon enough courage to go anyway and "forget" his DD was home already? Is this the perfect time since DD has already prohibited interaction with the teacher and is not there? Don't change that dial. We'll be back tomorrow with more suspenseful action.

I wonder if this changes the potential for DHS to feature an expanded Star Wars land in the future, given the LucasFilm purchase?? Or... perhaps this gives creedence to opening up an entirely new park based on Star Wars?

Thanks for posting. Looks like we'll have some love at HS at last. Hopefully they'll use this as the first phase and we'll get more updating at the studios.

That's what we keep saying......Hitting the lottery would certainly make college, that second home and DVC a little easier to plan for. They say money doesn't insure happiness, but I would certainly like to find out.

Yeah, DW and I do one of those budgets each year. I know Dave Ramsey says to do a budget each month, but it is difficult enough for us once. The main problem is that our income is not rising, most categories got a slight increase, but nothing significant. The main problem category is savings. We don't save enough. If the mutual fund investing thing works, then I think we are ok for the future, but I would like to have a larger savings fund. But, unless I get another job or take out Disney vacations, there is not much money going in there. We have three old cars that won't last forever, and I'm not doing another car payment. The struggle continues....
I'm with you. We are a one income household with the wife home. I've tried to convince her to support me, but she flat out refuses to work right now. I have 10% of every paycheck direct deposited into a savings account that we don't touch. This guarantees we save and it makes us live a little below our pay level to keep things in check. Also have some investments, but they should be ashamed of what they are returning on the investment.

We are starting to look at other income opportunities and things when can do from home, but nothing imminent yet. With College 5 years off, most of any extra is getting allocated there. We have 2 older cars and won't be getting a new one until DS is driving and I pass down mine.
