Newsweek Article: Having Kids Makes You Happy )

I guess it's fortunate that I always perceived the few childless couples I've known as happier, more relaxed, and less stressed than the many married and single parents I grew up knowing. Kids are incredibly stressful - there's no way around the truth of that - and caring for them day after day is a hard grind and, often, a completely thankless task. However, I also think it's difficult for people to find satisfaction with their lives in general, whether they have children or not.
I believe global warming exists and even if it doesn't, I don't think it's healthy to release so many carbon emissions in to our atmosphere; yet so many people won't make simple changes to reduce emissions, like shutting off their computers instead of letting them run all day or turning the thermostat up when they leave the house.

Forgetting carpooling, taking the bus, or walking more, I have to wonder: what does it say about us when we are too lazy to even do the bare minimum?

This is the funniest thing I've seen online in ages! I probably would have just paid the whole bill in pennies.

It's official. We've set a date and ordered our rings.

We're getting married on December 22.
