    lol goodluck man, things seem to be coming along nicely, you may have debt but at least you have things you can call your own, which is alot more than I or many others can say.

    I got everything I want, and a little more than one person actually needs...plus I have a huge shopping list of things I want, to go with all the crap I have....


    But I don't have a kid...:(

    Ohh well, at least I have a wife that loves the hell out of me...and she's going crazy that I haven't been home for almost 2 months... And the coolest dog in the world.

    Funny how all the bills can be paid at such a rate when I'm gone for two months, and not buying parts or other crap... well..except that camera..hehe:rolleyes:

    If people wait for the right time to have kids, they will never have kids.

    Same thing for marriage. I've been waiting for the right time - and that right time will never happen.

    i know how important it is to pay off debt, but make sure your priority is bad debt, which you don't have. make sure you keep a healthy stash in your savings. from your previous posts, i know you already have a good retirement.

    now lets have hs give us another hybrid baby. ^_^

    I'm on the same track now, paying off debt for the re-fi. my debt is much less than yours, but I only made 55k last year (looking at 65k this year). I have a kid, and let me tell you there is nothing better in the world, but with every blessing comes a burden (as the saying goes). Most of the time you spend on hobbies will disapear when there is a child in the picture. Also between having a kid, and sitting at a computer for a living I've put on a lot of weight. By the time I get done with daily responsibilities I get an hour a day 9pm - 10pm to myself all I want to do at that point is sit, relax and turn the brain off.

    hows about you train me then :p the place where I'm working at now trying to gain experience isn't going too well, all I seem to get done is body work which I already knew how to do! Teach me mechanics! :D

    I work 6 12 hour days and I seriously get paid like under $100 a week because I agreed to do it for the experience but Im begining to feel like I've been screwed...lol
