    Tikva,
    A flower is a flower but not all are the same. I bet at younger days, your hubby must have looked (or better stared) at tons of pretty wowen. They were not all the same to him, I bet! So tell him, it's the same thing with orchid blooms for you!!!! Hehheeehee!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Tikva,
    I might have even a better line for you!!!
    Your hubby might have gawked at hundreds of pretty women but it just ended there, he can't have them all. But with you, you can look at hundreds of these orchids and you can have them ALL !!!! Hehehhehe! Besides you have to look at orchids since you are not supposed to gawk at other handsome men anymore! Hehehhhe!

    Tind-O,
    I don't think the idea of having frogs and terrariums both would sink well with lot of womin ... I am afraid either one of those hobbies might scare off the perspectives ... (Just kidding of course!)

    Cheers. Hoa.

    Hey Julie! I don't need him to be interested in them, I just need his money lol!! I think it is the one drawback of being a kept woman / stay at home mom.... I love not having to work (except for the work that comes naturally with my SAHM job description) and not having to leave the house in real clothes - sloppy yoga pants work for me! BUT I dont make money and have huge guilt complexes!
    Didn't stop me from making my largest orchid order ever this morning - for free shipping... I have 6 orchids coming my way and then I really should stop buying.... hehe!
    I like the addition to Hoa's idea! I need to look at my orchids to keep my wandering eyes in submission... hehe!

    Guilt complexes??? Have you checked out what a full time (48 hr/wk) Nanny/Housekeeper would cost??? You're SAVING more money than you would probably bring home after taxes!

    You go, Diane!

    Convince Kirstie how much more she should be spending on orchids to compensate for her child care time.

    ...Wait - what about child birth???

    Figure in minimum wage (at least) for nine months...Omigod! Kirstie - I see a greenhouse in your future!

    Love you guys! So funny!
    Too bad I can't share that with the husband right now... he's not in the mood to giggle about that one... he's packing to leave tomorrow. Glad to go home. I think my orchids want some water........
