Do you have to right click on something specific? Because when I right click, I don't see anything about changing how often to refresh. I have a PC.

We lost jobs, had to declare bankruptcy, had a daughter 3 1/2 months premature. She lived 23 days. We had a DS 6 1/2 weeks premature. He was in the hospital for 21 days. He's 6. Had DS 3 months premature after a medically exciting pregnancy and finally c section because my blood pressure sky rocketed.

We feel like we've been thru enough and now neither of us will leave/cheat/lie/slack. We're really honest with each other and laugh a LOT.
Oh my, you have been through a lot. It sounds like troubles really did make you and your marriage stronger. Wonderful "success" story!

I see in my email that I just got my new digi issue of Cardmaker Magazine. Yippee! So much fun to look through, and it doesn't take up any space on a shelf!

It's nice that you can enjoy them for different reasons. Snuggling is certainly nice.

I think next year, we should have a hubby auction for HYCCT.

"This fine specimen once brought me chocolates and wine after a long day. Who wants to borrow him for a week? Let's start the bidding at 10 card donations for MD Anderson...give me 15, 20? Sold...33 cards donated for a week with my hubby!"

I hear you, girl. I LIKE being single. Was only married for less than a year. But when it comes to taking the car for oil change, etc., or having to change lightbulbs on my 10 ft. ceiling, and things like that, it would be nice to have a handyman ... well, handy.

Then he drives back the next day usually preceded by a panicked call from me telling him when I think I'll be crossing the finish line and packs up the kids once more drives back to the city finds parking on the busiest day of the month and wrangles the kids to find me and celebrate. Last year he missed me crossing the finish by minutes. He was so disappointed. Then we head home and he cares for me for twodays while I deal with sore legs and injuries. He's pretty fantastical.
It sounds like you make a pretty fantastic team

Married for 7yrs...but we were together for 15yrs...newly divorced. Somehow...I don't think SCS is the perfect dating site...but if there was a guy here...that was single and looking...that might just be the perfect man...lol

Married 13 years. Divorced 13 years.

Good thing about being single:
Nobody to complain about how much I spend on crafts.
Nobody to walk through the door expecting dinner in 15 minutes.
Nobody hogging the bed and the covers.
Nobody to run up the credit card.

Bad thing about being single:
Nobody to bring in a paycheck now that I'm a 99er.
Nobody to climb on a ladder and get heavy stuff down out of the rafters.

Notice how the good outweighs the bad? LOL

Good:
Nobody demanding my time and attention.
Nobody else's laundry to do.
Nobody hogging the remote control

Bad:
Nobody to travel with. (All the gals I know are either married or have travel buddies.)
Yeah, you already mentioned nobody to bring in a paycheck.

Still working on the mountains of laundry so I'm rewarding myself with a short break.
Happily married for 28 years....6 kids and blessings too numerous to count. He is a good husband, a good dad, and now a really good pastor to our church. Yep, they make a lot of laundry and eat a lot of food, but ya gotta love'em!
Seriously though ladies, it is good to be content with whatever your situation is and that's what I'm hearing from you ladies Times are rough for a lot of people and to be able to be thankful is a gift!

There were a lot of good things about my ex...like when I would get back from working a scrapbook expo...I could take a long hot shower and when I was done...my towel was magically clean. he would always take good care of me when I was sick. The problem was that he was hyper critical and refused to support me if it meant costing money or taking time away from him. I miss having somebody to talk to that doesn't have some sort of dementia. He was good to me...but mean about it. I'm not sad about being divorced...just sad that I don't have anybody to turn to. Those who have a good hubby...make sure you thank them for being good to you.
