Let me explain my current state of happiness.

This is "Running naked through the streets" Happy...
(Dont get excited Jessica I am a middle aged guy on the other side of the planet!)
My twin sons started their first week of summer vacation yesterday. My wife is a teacher so she is home with them all summer. Next fall they will start kindergarten. So this will be the first year I don’t have a day care payment!! What, that is not impressive to you? Lets do some math....
I took and passed calc-3 in college and today couldn't even remember the basics... 
Daycares in my area run $150 – $225 per week, Not bad for a facility that watches your child for 6 – 10 hours a day, feeds them a meal and two snacks, and builds the educational and social foundation that will set the tone for there entire life. We picked a nice middle of the road priced facility that had higher educational standards. So I was paying $190 per week, per kid. That’s $380 a week… $1520 a month… with eight weeks off a year that’s $16,720 PER YEAR that I have been paying for the last 4 years and now I don’t have to anymore!
Ya its sort of like this

So with my extra money I purchased my first gift to my self last night: 
5 BURNER GAS GRILL WITH SMOKER
Primary cooking area 554 square inches
Secondary cooking area 140 square inches
Total cooking area 694 square inches
5 Stainless steel tube burners
10,000 BTUs each/50,000 BTUs total
12,000 BTUs stainless steel side burner
10,000 BTUs rotisserie burner
Porcelain-coated cast iron cooking grates
Porcelain-coated wire warming rack
Includes smoker inside left door
7,500 BTUs stainless steel smoker burner
Adjustable, chrome-plated cooking grates
Electronic ignition
One of the sexiest things I have ever posted on here.... 
What are YOUR plans for the 4th of July?

(Yes I know that is a very ethnocentric question but 90% of my audience is from the US so it is fair, but a big shout out to who ever it is from Brazil that keeps popping by!)

  3. We don't really celebrate 4th of July here. Besides, I'll be working then. Working during summer vacation, yeah. But the money I earn then gets me though the year!

  26. JULY 4th!!

    Do you think I'll be able to convince my parents that I should totally celebrate this holiday, even though I'm neither American nor into fireworks and over eating? mmm. Probably not. ):

    So...no plans. Have fun doing whatever you're doing though. Have some condoms handy. AND YOU HAVE TWINS?! HOW ADORABLE!!!

    And that day care thing must be one hell of a fancy schmancy establishment. I mean...the amount of money you COULD have spent on strippers and tequila.

    ...You know what? I think I'll use birth control for the rest of my life. lol.
