They were so much more expensive for a basic one back in those days. I was so proud of the fact that I had bought my own laptop. Although my dad was more proud of the fact than I was! :)
That's a nice story. Hopefully the jobs were at least enjoyable one day of the week, if no more!

Great question!

As a brand new mother I can definitely relate to this one, Scott. I just gave birth to my first son last month and I'm working hard on trying to be the best mom I can be. Parenthood is a lot of hard work but I'm trying to give it my all.

Yes, this is exactly my thinking as well. If my kids turn out to be happy, confident and independent people who have always felt love in our family, then I have truly accomplished something.
