Are you keeping internet? Are the certain shows not available on the internet?

That's a lot of $$$$. Are you all still doing the Disney cruise?

We have to keep Internet because I work from home sometimes. I'll have to look into that though. I was hoping Netflix and Hulu would help offset the sacrifice.

I don't know yet. It all depends on where we are this spring with fundraising. I don't want to cancel because it means so much to the girls.

Just think how many people we can pick up on our boat mutiny. I get it though, so no pressure from me. As for cable, some of the shows have their own website and some you can get thru Hulu or different network apps. The pay sites will open the show a day after airing. The free sites have the show opening 8 days after the show airs.

If I charge them all $100 I think I would come out ahead

That is a very good estimate of the cost... With Ethan we were somewhere in the neighborhood of 35-40k. Part of that was because of having to stay for nearly a month in NY and having to fly with him to Salt Lake to finalize. Luckily our work had a program for adoption assistance and then the government offers a 12k (approx.) adoption tax credit that also helped. I wish that I had used the Lawyer with Lauren that I used with Ethan it would have saved us thousands, but I did not know sthat time. With Lauren our expenses were only about 15K. Good LUck!!!

I am hoping the tax credit gets renewed this year. Adopting two, that would be a nice deduction.

Big win for the Cowboys. Glad the O line decided to show up for the second half.

It was a pretty close game. They can't afford those kind of mistakes though.

So true; I'm glad I was napping through most of the game. Scary hit on Oggletree near the end of the game.

Yes, a great win against the worst team in the league. And, I correctly picked they would not cover the spread.
