Also would be interested in this.
You going to see if Luxire can source decent greyhound? Wonder if that counts as an exotic skin. My greyhound just gave me a weird look. He's on to me.
In the end, she's the parent and not you. She's risking hurting her kids by bringing this new guy around so early, but there's nothing you can do about that whether you keep yourself involved or not. It's going to be painful for you to hang around this situation. You're going to have to extricate yourself from the family dynamic sooner or later, so given the context, you might as well start doing it now. Probably just pull a fade so that it's not so abrupt for the...
I think their phrasing just bothers me because it's like they don't want to admit they were sacrificing. It's totally fine to lower your standard of living to the minimum level that's tolerable for you to save more money. But it's disingenuous to pretend that it's not any kind of sacrifice, which is pretty much the case they were trying to make. Sure, say it's not that big a deal and it was worth it to them. But the "zomg I can't possibly process why anyone would want...
Say "rim protection" one more time and idfnl will appear.
Good thing you're not somehow publicizing your mistakes to the world.
Pistons 2004!It's really amazing if you look over the list of champions how few teams have really won it. The Lakers and Celtics have nearly half the total. Also kind of points out how absurd using multiple championships as a standard for great individual players really is. Half the franchises in the league have fewer rings than a "mere" two time winner like Lebron, but we give him all kinds of shit for it.
It's certainly a step up from living in a trailer in the lowcountry of Florida, but yeah, not sure that sort of life is what I'd go for. I think I'd go crazy if I weren't working, or at least doing something productive. Maybe that's just one of those lies I tell myself to keep going in to work, but I don't think so.The extremes make for a better story. "Joe Schmoe lived a responsible life, saved 15%, bought some nice stuff, then retired at 65 and spent time with his...
Their only actual income is 40k in interest and stock income, and they're dumping the maximum into an IRA every year. That brings their taxable income down to the point where they're paying minimal/no taxes. They just can't touch the money until retirement or they have to pay taxes on it.
It sounds like they used to carry coverage in the US despite not living here so that they would be eligible for coverage if they got diagnosed with someone and if they wanted to come back to the US. Sort of a double redundancy. The wife and kid have coverage in the country they actually live in, and of course in a lot of countries you don't really need insurance to get affordable medical care.They're pretty much just living as ex-pats, and using the preexisting condition...
