    For those who have followed my family, you will LOVE this. I am not being sarcastic when I say this but I am genuinely curious what will happen today. In my mind, it can go any way. Background. BIL's first wife is having a party for her youngest son's birthday (BIL's second son). We are...

    Before I bought the house, their was a leaky shower pan in the master shower. So, the seller paid $3,125.00 to have the whole shower replaced and have the wall in the closet re-plastered. I still find pieces of grout on the shower floor from the oh-so-wonderful repair job. The shower drips...

    Well, phase one, the clear out- the yard men came, a huge group with big heavy epuipment and cleared out my back yard--who KNEW it was so big lol. $1000 but well worth it, a bit still needs doing but it is all about the alloted budgeted amount. Monday comes the new eaves for $650 Friday or...

    I gave notice to the childcare family that is the issue. We'll see what happens. They didn't call last night, but I was sick as a dog at pick up, so dh was minding the kids and I was sleeping as soon as he came home. I didn't sleep well last night. I'm dreading the next couple days. I'm hoping...

    Well, he was suppose to leave on Monday for bootcamp. He was to leave around 1 in the afternoon, but their flight was cancelled, and they put them up in the hotel for another night. Not really a big deal, but a pain in the butt. Tuesday comes and they get up at 4:00 and have them sitting at...
  7. Stepmoms and Second Wives
    :furious: Just a rant/vent before I loose it! Well it's been over 2 months since my stepdaughter (16) has had any contact with us. DH told her to call when she was ready to apologize and put the past behind so we can move on. She called this afternoon, DH put her on speaker phone, and...

    Now that I have your attention, let me tell you this story and LMK what you think! We bought our first house in 1985. We were flat broke when we moved in (I totalled our new car that day and the hot water heater went out the next day!), so we didn't buy anything but food and gas for almost a...

    I really love historical books, but even more I love sagas.  I think it also relates to the fact that I love genealogy.  Right now I've just started reading "Charleston" by John Lakes.  I'm also slowly reading this book called "The Princes of Ireland".  Anyone else like sagas?  Have any good...

    Oh my Lord! Have you ever tried to remove a splinter from the finger of a 3 year old? Don't. Just don't even try. Or maybe my kid is the only one who screamed so loudly, I went around and shut the windows so the neighbors wouldn't call the police. She got two splinters this morning at the...

    I swear the state is putting me through some sort of a test, let's see just what it takes to push Kellie over the edge. Today was good news. I was told Jack was being sent to live with his 64 year old grandfather in Florida next week, today I finally get in touch with his law guardian who tells...

    This is a long story so bear with me. Some of you may have seen how we removed the shutters on the exterior of our house when we moved in 2 mos ago. The shutters were really old and falling apart. They were vinyl and hollow!! We took them off and found that one of the previous owners had GLUED...

    I picked the series up at the library today; they look good. I have a few books to read before I get to these and I was wondering if anyone has read these. One of the book reviews I read says that Ruth Glover's writing is much like Janette Oke, so that was enough to convinced me. There's now...
  17. Support
    Well, the meeting that the principal wanted was to tell me that the budget cuts were affecting me personally. The carrer ladder I have been climbing actually hurt me more than helped me. The head of human relations came to see me on Thursday morning. He told me that my position as Paraeducator...
