    Been back at my old firm for over a year now. They brought me back at, obviously, a much higher rate than I was makin' retail (thus, the need to work as many as 3 of those jobs at a time ) and then gave me a 20% raise at the 3 month mark. Just got another 10% raise at the one year mark. I think they're happy with me. Hopefully, the economy holds out...
    Oldest DD is gettin' married in 3 weeks. She found a good guy (they've been dating since HS), and we're so happy for them!
    But, even though she's no bridezilla and it's not even remotely close to over-the-top, this wedding thing still ain't cheap.
    I feel a LOT like George Banks from Father of the Bride, as of late...!
    Anyway, Hope you're all well!
    My Dad made it very clear. He'd pay for college for my Sis and me but Weddings, elope. I paid for my entire wedding minus the dress which my Mom bought.

    Best Wishes to the Bride.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Second day of waiting for my turn to talk to the tax lady. Long spring break. Hungry-I forgot my snacks.

    Not exclusively. I'm the one around our house always askin'... "Does that REALLY have to be that friggin' loud?!?! "
    And, no other guy is ever gonna' suffer from "TV envy" when he comes to my house...!

    Thanks Gabe, I'll pass that along!

    Like I said, it ain't crazy at all, but, even modest weddings are gettin' outta' hand these days.
