    The title says it all folks.
    I'm betting that there will be lots of common responses.

    wondering why more people wouldnt want to work 9 months a year ( new england ) take days off when you want, spend time being with my kids while they are growing, instead of wondering where all the years went when they leave for college ( i know where they went cause I was with them ) and still make a good living.

    I said weather...very ligit concern, and intelligent...no??

    another said employess, also very ligitand intelligent... no?

    another said balancing growth w/hiring,firing, very ligit, intelligent, right?

    one mentioned working seasonal? (which is very cool to have time for family), but...not really what your original question is about, right?

    one jumped in to say he felt 'guilty' for (implied) not spending more time with his family



    Pilgim asked the question then comments on being thankful for two intellegent responses.....what???

    I take this defensive stance because i answered a question that was asked, answered it honestly, intellegently, and quickly (seeing as how the question was posted and left unanswered for a few hours, i actually thought i was doing a favor by being the first to reply)...i dont drink egg nog

    lawnservice,

    I thank you for your reply and yes you did get the ball rolling here.
    It seems that we all have the same headaches.
    I do appreciate the responses and if you notice my "jab" was not at all directed at you.
