A little background my self and my family. I am just about 26 years old, and my wife is 24. We have a 16 month old daughter, and a second daughter due in a few months. Our current home is a small 2…Continue
"I think it's here that I read that a shorter commute means greater happiness, statistically.
I'm about 15 miles from my parents and see them about once/month. I work long hours, and my husband and I plan outings well in advance. My parents…"
"Lots of tradeoffs, to be sure. I can make a few observations:
* I'd guess that the difference of being 15 min away from family and 30 min away, say, is not big. You'll not see them w/o some planning, but planning is minimal.
"You should not look 10 years out in terms of school. When my daughter was in kindergarten they were using creative spelling; spelling words like they sound instead of the actual spelling. The teacher was writing words on the board like this and she…"
A little background my self and my family. I am just about 26 years old, and my wife is 24. We have a 16 month old daughter, and a second daughter due in a few months. Our current home is a small 2 bedroom house built in 1946. We bought it in 2008, and have lived there since. The house has a cottage kind of feel and was a good starter house for use while we started our lives on our own and started our family.Now that our family is growing, we are considering moving to a different area.

"I actually just started a similar blog. Mine is focused in general on the problems and benefits of starting a family young. My wife and I were 21 and 22 respectively when we got married, and our first daughter was born when I was 24.
Once my blog is…"
"There are a number of interpretations on this verse, Kevin. A good study Bible can help address some of these difficult passages. In my humble opinion, the ESV Study Bible is an amazing, inexpensive resource! You can get…"
"The fine is directly because of the law. That's inarguable. The confusion is certainly arguably related.
Obamacare has demonstrably made things worse, especially when considered alongside the upheaval and expenditure…"
"Like Liam said, I doubt you could find a liberal/progressive that can't find fault with the law. The vast majority of us who are old enough embraced the Clinton's when they turned it down in '93. We just are so "dense"…"
"I'm just not seeing the benefit. 800k new insurance sign ups, and $1 trillion spent. Then people like Steve are still uninsured. So what's the point exactly? To spend a shot load of money to say, "oh we tried"?"
"It's not that we don't find fault in it. We do. It's that the fault we find, tends to be less than the faults in the system nobody was trying to fix before... and that some of what we do see go wrong - per Steve's case, is not…"
