Oh I myself am not trying to act like that at all. We practically live paycheck to paycheck ourselves. No one should ever act too good for anything because they might find themselves in a worse financial state one day. I would just feel guilty for going when we are gonna have a way to make dinner & I would rather someone else that didnt, the opportunity. Maybe its just me, but those are just my personal feelings. Once again thanks to H.E.B. for offering to give back to the community in whatever way because every little bit counts.

EXACTLY!! All I'm saying is that the feast is supposed to be for the less fortunate & not for the greedy or the people that just want a "free meal". It is not a community party, its supposed to be to give the less fortunate a meal that they otherwise would not have had on this Christmas holiday. To hear that people expected more or were demanding just goes to show that they should not have been there. Greatful to HEB for their efforts and shame on those who just take, take, take, for their own entitlement when they can very well afford a holiday meal this time of year.
Isnt the Feast of Sharing for the less fortunate to give them a chance to have a Christmas dinner & to give them some hope that someone cares? Like for example the toys for tots. I use to live in C.C.TX & thats what the Feast of Sharing was. I wouldnt register for toys for tots if my tree was full of presents so I never understand going to the Feast of Sharing just to get a free meal if I have the means to buy Christmas dinner. Im not criticizing anyone for going, Im just trying to understand how it works in Victoria.
I THINK ITS WONDERFUL TO BE ABLE TO WATCH THIS EVENT. AN INAGURATION OF A PRESIDENT IS HISTORY IN THE MAKING NO MATTER WHAT COLOR THE PRESIDENT ELECT IS. ITS HISTORY PEOPLE! SO WHAT IF ITS FREE THIS AND THAT, DONT WE ALL NEED A LITTLE "FREE" THESE DAYS. WELL WITH THE WORLD BUSH HAS LEFT US IM SURPRIZED IM STILL ABLE TO PUT FOOD ON THE TABLE AND CLOTH MY DAUGHTERS BACK. FOR YOU BUSH SUPPORTERS I FEEL SORRY FOR YOU, WITH YOUR PRESIDENT YOU WOULD BE HOMELESS AND HUNGRY SOON. THANK BUSH FOR THE PROBLEMS AND OBAMA FOR FUTURE SOLUTIONS. TUNE IN TO HBO AND MAYBE SOME OF YOU WILL GET YOUR HEADS OUT OF THE GUTTER AND SEE CHANGE COMING IN OUR GOVERNMENT. IF ALL YOU SEE IS COLOR THEN SHAME ON YOU. I PERSONALLY WILL BE TUNED IN.
I am an adult living with my mother. My daughters father and my daughter also live with us. In my opinion there isnt anything wrong with moving back home as long as you and your parent set out some ground rules from day one. Being that my mom and I are really close, we have never had a huge fight about the living situation. I work and contribute exactly half of all of the bills to the household. I am an adult and realize that just because I live with my parent it gives no excuse to be lazy and take advantage. Parents who have grown kids move back in should set out a particular amount of "rent" that the son/daughter will have to pay each month. Just as they would if they lived on their own. For the more lazy types, make them realize that if their contribution isnt made each month to the household, they arent welcome. Real world involves real issues. Just because they are staying with parents gives no excuse to become dependent as if they were 10 again. Parents house, parents rules, to an extent. In my situaiton, I dont ask to go here or there, as long as i have the respect of always letting my mom know of my where abouts. Theres this old saying that sticks in my mind that my mom use to say, " this isnt a motel, you dont sleep in and this isnt a vacation, get up, go to work or get out. I knew she was serious and parents have to be. Living with your grown children can be great as long as the understandings are well known. I wouldnt have it any other way!
