    Long story as short as I can go- I met my best friend (E) about 5 years ago through her husband (F), who I knew 2 or 3 years before her. Their family and my family became rather inseperable- camping, a big vacation together, Holidays, bonfires. We were eachother's 'go to' folks- she watched my...

    A friend better off than I am had her KitchenAid break down. Her son, being a good son, went to the US and brought her back a new super duper model. She, meanwhile, was talking about taking hers in to get fixed. I told her if it was less than $100 to fix it, I'd buy it off her. So...as of...

    My sister is battling stage 4 colon cancer and the nearest place for her to get her treatment is in Houston Texas at MD Anderson. The problem is that she has to fly to Texas every 3-4 weeks. We have done fundraisers and she has contacted Angel Flights, and Continenntals special rate for medical...

    I was just thinking about this. When I was younger and single I used to visit with friends all the time without calling ahead. If I was in the area, I'd just drop in. My best girlfriend and I used to drive around a lot (when gas was under $1 a gallon!) and see friends on the spur of the moment...

Sold my...

    I just wanted to ask you all a question: If your neighbours that are really good friends of ours gave us a Christmas gift that maybe cost them $25 dollars is an estimate. Would it be just as sufficient to give them a tin full of home made cookies that I baked especially for them as a gift? We...
  17. Adoption
    A woman in my Mom's group just adopted a little boy from China. She and her husband are both teachers and they have two kids, I'm guessing their ages are around 4 & 6. The little boy is 2. Before she left for china she was telling us how her husband couldn't go with her because the credit...

    A little background: we left a religious cult a few (8) years ago, and it devastated our lives. Family members and lifelong friends act as if we were dead, and it has been a slow process in rebuilding, especially without moving to a new area. So once in awhile you might see a zinger directed...

    Yes, I understand that my relationship with my bf was rocky. But it was a 5 year relationship. I am not just going to "get over it and move on". I officially finally ended it on Sunday, today is Thursday of the same week. Why can't my friends and co-workers understand that I need time to...

    I noticed that I have avoided going to a friends home because they smoke and it feels like I am walking into a burning cigarette. The other day I dropped off some magazines and she had her door open. From the outside I could smell all the cigarette smoke coming out of her apartment. In some...
