Not sure what is more pathetic. The thread or the fact that Sooth doesn't think 250K/Year is a lot of money.

Pardon me. Excuse me. Let me squeeze by there. Thanks. Hey I just need to get in front of you. Thank You.

{Max steps up on his Soap Box}

When I was a kid we didn't have a lot of money. When I became a teenager it was all I could think about. I remember actually being scared. I thought what if I don't become rich? What if I don't make it? I majored in Finance in College and just figured that money was something I had to have lots of. I had to change the tide for my family. We were going to be rich.

As I got older I realized how good I had it growing up. We didn't have a big house. But we had a home. My parents are were happy. My entire family supported each other in sports or whatever we did.

Then I realized. I already had everything I needed. We aren't "rich". I cringe when I send out the monthly mortgage check. But I have a very good job and we spoil the kids rotten (try to anyway). The kids are in a private Catholic School and my wife has been able to stay at home the entire time.

Do I have a fund set aside for their college? lol. Do I get to coach my kids in every sport that they play? Yes. Do I get to work at a job I enjoy and have enough flexibility to spend time with the family? Yes.

There is a trade off. Since I wasn't born rich (that would have been my first choice) I realize that money doesn't make me rich. I used to travel for work. Flew all over and got to see a lot of the country. When our 3rd kid was born I told my employer I couldn't travel anymore. Said I was away from the kids too much. Sure if I traveled I could make more money. Would that make me rich? Not in my book.

Family Man is one of my favorite movies. And I can't recall ever seeing a tomb stone that read: I wish I had spent more time at the office. It is the little things that I will look back on. To me, it's not about the vacations. It is about playing in the back yard with the kids. The best things in life are free.

Yes -- I know -- spoken like a poor person. hahahaha.
