That's an expensive boat! I grew up on a lake. We had a speed boat (for skiing, tubing, etc) and a pontoon. I'm pretty sure our pontoon cost less than $8000, lol. That was YEARS ago, though.

Lindsey: haha yeah but your Hubby makes a lot of money. We're lucky if Hubby clears $3k a month.



bawhahaha, complaining when you have a boat and a condo. lol jk but seriously. hahahaha



Stef: True true. Where we used to live in NC was like that. We paid $600 for rent for a 2br 1.5ba house with fenced in back yard and big front yard. This house now was the cheapest we could find that wasn't a trailer.

Yeah very expensive but well worth it. We live right on the lake so we spend all summer on the water. So its well worth it for us. My kids are little fish. My oldest is already skiing and tubing...my youngest is still kinda a chicken. haha

You said your hubby is an engineer, right? I can't wait until my hubby finally gets his degree. I won't have to work anymore. 8) He'd have it already if he didn't change his major twice before deciding on engineering!

I was joking. But haha, men. What's he into?



I'm glad Hubby is only into playing cards. They don't take up much space at all. My hobbys on the other hand... <.< >.> Take up a whole room. I have so much craft stuff.

Yeah hes a power engineer. So he works for a huge oil company and sit in an office and pretty much runs the whole plant from a bunch of computer screens.
He just got his second class ticket as well so his wage is going up and his bonus(his bonus this year was 22,000 where as his friend who had his 2nd class already was 36,000) so taht will be nice right after xmas! and well pretty much everything. In a year or so he will be able to take a day job where he will work mon-thurs and be home everyday around 530. I cant wait for that day!

Not when you're paying for it haha. They charged my Mom to use her TV and phone a few months ago when she was in. Like WtF. haha

You can buy Aspirin at the dollar store for $1 a bottle! :wink:



I got another OB bill yesterday. Two, in fact. They billed me for the same vaginal ultrasound twice; the one where they wouldn't let me see the baby. It was $125 AFTER insurance. Since I'm changing jobs and changing insurance companies, my deductible starts over again. Yiippee. And then it's going to be $2000 to have the baby, plus the $3000 OB fee to deliver, plus all the bills I've already acquired. Having babies is expensive business! If I didn't have a clotting disorder, I'd just have the baby in my tub, lol.

That just doesnt seem right. I just cant get over the healthcare there i think its so crazy. I go into the ER so many times in a year, ive had medicines, my daughter has been put to sleep to get a cyst taken out, xrays, ultrasounds you name it we pay for absolutely nothing!!!
The only thing we had to pay for was when we called the ambulance when my youngest had a seizure.
