    Does watching TV, movies or sleeping together count? Those things we can do and it not lead to an argument?

      They count in my mind. Perhaps suggest a weekly date/movie night?

      • Weekly date nights are difficult right now with the bankruptcy. We've been lucky this year as we've had 4 date nights this far and we'll have a fifth one this weekend. As long as we aren't blown off the earth that is.

          Oh, by date night I meant soemthing like on Wednesdays (or whatever day) you put aside what you are doing, eat dinner, then sit down together to watch a movie/tv etc. Not going out or spending money. Just a time when you are focused on spending time together - not doing dishes, or laundry, or whatever else. Time for the two of you.

          • We do that almost nightly. Most of time, I end up falling asleep on him. Or we'll sit outside and play with the dogs.

              Huh, well, why the heck does he want you to play golf then? It sounds like you are spending time with him already.

                I'm thinking he wants to do something active? That's the only thing I can come up with.

                • I'm exhausted. I've been fighting a nasty headache all day. Luckily, I'm the only one here so I've been able to keep the lights off. I'm thinking of just ordering pizza and going to bed early. I'm thinking I won't get much sleep tonight if the storms are as bad as they are calling for.

                  • I'm debating on getting a second job. Clint won't like it, the girls won't like it, but I feel like I'm being forced into it. If this whole Obamacare crap hadn't of come about, I wouldn't have this problem. However, the company I work for bases the insurance renewal on a plan year basis instead of a calendar year like majority of plans use. Meaning, for us to be fully insured under Obamacare and not be thrown a penalty by the IRS on next years tax filing, I have to take insurance from my company in August. This is there open enrollment and will be my eligibility date. If the plan went on a calendar year schedule, I could have waited for open enrollment in November and the plan to go into effect on January 1. Health insurance here will cost roughly $200 biweekly. Meaning with the extra being taken out for the bankruptcy and my insurance being deducted, we will be losing an additional $378 bi weekly. I truly have no clue what to do. This all just dawned on me this morning. I'm a bit stressed over this.

                      • What's worse, is that I would only need the job until the end of the year as that is when the bankruptcy will be up. It's just difficult to figure out if its worth not taking the insurance and endure the tax hit. I'm looking at Tristan's sports fees; then for all the girls, school fees, school clothes and supplies and I just do not know how I'm going to do this without a second job. You're damned if you do and damned if you don't.

                        • Can you find out how big the penalties will be? I kinda doubt they will go into effect as the gov't can't seem to get anything done, so I figure that this may be the same. What are your predicted/ known medical needs for the fall? How much more is the insurance? This seems to fall under the " crap I can't control" heading, so set it aside and work on something you can make better. A second job may end up costing you too much in loss of family time and eating out is one of he first symptoms.

                          • Penalties will run $500 for the first year and we're looking at around $1000 for 2014 being without coverage for the first 7 months of the year. I don't have any money that I can put aside to save for anything right now.

                            • I'm looking at kids needing braces, if Tristan injures herself in cross country, I'll need insurance for that. I work in healthcare, I know Obamacare is not going anywhere.

                              • Most dental insurance is straight up crap. Also, I 'needed' braces. Still do. Don't see that ever happening. Actually, to fix my teeth they would need to break my jaw, reset it, and then give me braces. Yeah, f*ck that. Point being, kids can live without them.
