I have to say, Epidou (Tactu here in Canada) has made such a difference. It was several weeks of bad times, but people actually compliment me on my complexion now, my scars are fading, and my face doesn't hurt. It was hard to get through the bad weeks, but if you have serious skin problems, it is worth trying to tough out.
@garli Haha that much butter where I live would be like five dollars
@garli They seem right to my Canadian eyes.
@MemphisBlues THANK GOD I'm so vengeful and angry I can't be bothered to even care what men think of how I look.
@samburger Thanks! Every week or so we do a big search to look. To really increase incomes I think we'd have to move provinces, which is fine, although logistically challenging. Neither of us have big fancy skills or degrees (history grad school drop-outs!), which adds to the challenge. We live on about 29k net now, so 25k seem pretty doable, especially somewhere with a cheaper cost of living.
@samburger huh, we have the same 10 year financial goal, basically (ours is 600K). We've got a leg up in the money pile though, mind if I use you an impetus to try to find a better paying job?
@Vicky I used to fly regularly through Ottawa and the movement of the MPs and their staffs was pretty annoying.
@GHDave Denver is the best to walk around and read conspiracy theories on your phone. Also DEN has a jerky stand my husband goes nuts for.
@JJHuggnstuff I don't know the basis for this, but my Canadian bush pilot/helicopter pilot dad says that everyone he has worked with hates flying with military trained pilots, and feels unsafe when they are on jobs with them.
@Glen Raphael@facebook Yeah mine too, and it makes life so easy! Christmas on the 27th? No big D, and we can get more family and friends over to light the tree and drink wine. To us, the important part of the holiday is the feeling you create among those you love, and that can happen whenever.
