:dis: Where to begin...I just feel so overwhelmed. It feels like I can never get enough time to do things between caring for everyone and everything. I know I do tend to put others before myself but I feel this is getting ridiculous!
Between caring for dad, DH, family, the house, the cars...
A friend (F) asked for my opinion and I really don't know what to tell her. So, I am asking ya'll.
F's child (P) has moved back in and wants to bring in P's SO (B) and B's 2 children. B has stolen money and meds from F in the past and will not take care of the 2 children. So, F would end up...
Lucky thing I'm off of work today.

Dh and I have things we want to accomplish. We have had a rough period for the last several months learning to live with a reduction in income. Well we really needed a reality check and I think we got it this weekend. We have a old farmhouse. It needs repairs. Dh is the handy man so I told...

Yikes, am I gonna be a...
I've been gone on some family business, and now have returned to the Village. Noticed that the groans are gone. Is this permanent? If so, good! I wasn't real fond of them, anyway.
Anyway, it will take me a bit to catch up. Hope you all had a good weekend!

Just wondering ladies - also trying to get some tips to help me out here - how do you deal with something you thought was the best thing to ever hit your life and then realizing it needs to end and end now?
As odd as this sounds, this past weekend my bf and I were having a quiet night in after...
My soon to be ex and I separated after 7 and a half years of marriage in January so now I'm doing the single parent thing. So far it's going ok, although we're still trying to find our groove. Just wanted to say hi to everyone! :grnwave:
Yep, had 3 visits from him. So I'm DONE. Bad luck comes in 3's so not only did I evict him from the guest room, I've evicted him from the house!
