  1. Family
    You know the swimming pool where the kids all play and splash and have FUN. It is also the place that mommies sit together and talk while watching their children splash. The gathering of moms often comes with talking about: the choice in careers or choice to stay home and the choice of...
  2. Coupons
    I have a large envelope full of expired coupons that could go to a military family overseas. If you know of such a family that would like them, please pm me an address where I can send these coupons to. Thanks:)

  4. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    I know I said I was leaving for to do some stuff, but I thought this was more important for the moment. :laugh: Sen Reid has come right out and said that it looks like we're headed for a shutdown. HR 1297 is stuck in committee. It really looks like our military families are not going to get...

  6. General Chat
    I have been peeking in at some of the forums here on this sight... and I think I see a few people who I think I met over on another web forum a long time ago (***************). Am I imagining this? I sure like running across ol' friends that I lost contact with.
  7. Health and beauty
    I had this thought form after hearing previews for an Alzheimer's story on NPR on my drive in today. Let's say that a couple shares a belief system whereby the eternal reward is dependent upon active faith at the time of death (I'm specifically thinking Christianity, but I don't want to leave...

  9. Question and Answer
    Anyone here with a small family (4 members and under) have a minivan as a family vehicle? DH and I are looking to replace one of our cars and he suggested a minivan, as they are cheaper and big enough to carry a lot of stuff. Right now it's just us, and in June it will be us plus baby, with...

    Sorry my friends, I don't post much, but this is really getting to me...this will be long. Alittle back ground. My Sis-in-law was diagnosis with a serious CA on Labor Day weekend. And I do mean serious. I have been stopping by almost every day before work for the last few months to help out...

    We attend a family gathering/picnic at a campground that has a pool, showers and a playground. They also have a small laundromat, a small dinner, and they allow pets. This past Summer I was taken aback at how many families were now living at that camp ground. But nothing prepared me for what I...

    Just checking in... We're still in California. Will have a lot a waiting going on over the next few months to see if we'll be staying or moving or if dh will have a long tour away from us coming up.
  13. Military Families
    I need some info and this was the best place I could think of. Say you are female, married to a deployed soldier in the Army, and no kids involved. Does his pay go directly into an account for the spouse? Can he have it go to anyone else other than his spouse? Does his pay go to bank through...

    And how do you deal with it? My daughter is working a job now and she takes my car Mon, tues, and weds. to work and my husband works far away from where we live. This is really a huge adjustment for me as I am always used to having a car, just getting up and going when I want, and not really...

  16. Family
    So, in October, I told mom that I didn't want to have a houseful this year. Last year I had an extra 6 people stay here for a week. My SIL expected to be waited on hand and foot. Having 8 kids in the house, 3 newly adopted from an orphanage with parents who just wanted a break from them wasn't...
  17. Education
    Neither brick-and-mortar public school nor homeschooling worked out for us. So now we're enrolled in a public virtual cyber-school. I'm still the person doing the day-to-day teaching, but I don't also have to build a curriculum. My house is staying tidy! The kids like the new structure. I...

    I was listening to the song "American Soldier" by Tobey Keith and it made me think of all those people fighting wars today and of people like my grandads who fought in the world wars. I dont know any service people (my grandads both having died), and i cant say i will ever know what its like for...
