$25 each, and there are 6 of us, so the winner actually get $125.

That's not the case here. You two have to have a civil relationship for the kids.

Good luck getting all of that sorted out.

What are you going back to school for?

I know Edie, He is using the kids as a way to Control me becuase he can't do that anymore.. It's really sad, he is only thinking of himself and not the kids.

I am going back to school to get my Degree in Nursing to be an RN

Hi girls!

I am stopping by really quick!

I'd much rather sit on my tush and talk to you all!

I am having complete anxiety over this whole houseboat trip this weekend. Just me and Rich and some of our not-so-nice friends. I don't want to go, but money is tied up in the trip already. So there isn't really a way out. I am totally stressing. I can hardly sleep and it makes me sick to my stomach, in not a good way.

UGH!

My "friend" Jenny still has hardly said two words to me. I have even thrown her "a bone" a few times and never get a response. ***??? I am trying to just play nice and be civilized and she can't even respond to anything I say. It's total bull****. And I have to be stuck with her and her husband on a boat? There is only one other girl going on the trip and as of lately her and Jenny have been "bff's" And personally, I don't mind a bit, I am not saying that out of jealousy. But I know what Jenny has said about her behind her back, so Lord knows what she has been saying about me.

I just want to cry!!!!! I am hoping that my mind is making things worse than they will be, as can usually be the case, but I still think it is going to be awkward and I just don't want to go.


Thanks for listening. It felt good to say that to someone. I struggle talking about it with Rich. He understands but he is more the "choose your attitude" kind of guy, ya know? And he doesn't want me to dwell on it.

Thanks.. I have really learned the hard way that he doesn't keep his word. We talked about how and when I was going to get the rest of my stuff out before, but he is just doing things right now that work best for HIM and thats all he cares about.. It's sad that it comes to this after almost 20 years!

PS -

I love you all and sorry I haven't been around to chit chat. I probably still won't be around too much for the next couple weeks. We have something going on until after Labor Day.

Please keep me posted on things if needed!

Thanks again for being wonderful, wonderful friends, and just overall awesome human beings! There needs to be more people in the world like all of you!!!

Thanks.. I have a storage unit now so I am going over to the house as much as I can the next few days and plan on having it all back to my storage unit by Friday. That way, I can go thru the stuff little by little and not let it get in the way of my Focus on school.

Thanks Leslie, I am ready for it to all be over with.. It has been almost 8 months and I don't see the end in sight yet. He owns a family business and so that is making things drag on with the attorneys. I am not angry at him or anything he has done. I have taken resposibility for my actions the last 20 years, and I have forgiven him for his. I just want to move on and give my kids the best life I can and be Happy! One day at a time, I guess.

I've had more fun in the past 1 1/2 weeks than I've had in years, I think! You girls are just the BEST!

I'll try to stop by to chat this evening, but not having a laptop makes it difficult. If I don't make it back, know that I"m thinking of y'all!!!!
Hi Suz! So glad to hear you and Jane had so much fun. Also, sorry to hear about your laptop. Hope you have a great day!

Sorry to hear that "Jenny" is not responding in a friendly matter, especially because she is not the only one going to be on the boat!

I guess in this situation I would just try and enjoy the time you and Rich and your nice friends spend together and not worry about those not being nice. You have been nice them, don't let them ruin your weekend. They are the ones that are going to miss out on having a great time with you!!

Hello again. What a day. I have butterflies in my tummy now. I just called the real estate agent and asked about the cabin. They are going to email me paperwork to complete an offer.

OOOOF. I'm all queasy. This purchase will seriously postpone our trip to Scotland and Ireland. We talked last night and think it's definitely worth it. A good investment. I'm just so nervous now.

I really give you so much credit. There are so many times when I wish I'd gone to school to be a nurse right from the start. Because right now, the idea of starting over (and doing it while I'm working) seems just impossible.

I'm sorry you're dreading it so much. I wish I could go with you! I know it's easier said than done, but just try to enjoy the time away with Rich and ignore your "friends" as much as you can. And if they give you a hard time about not drinking or whatever, push them overboard.

I don't know if you'll have cell reception, but if you do, feel free to vent via text so they don't know what you're saying!

That's a smart way to do it. If you're going to have to rent a storage unit anyway, it makes sense to just get everything in there and take your time sorting stuff out.

Colleen--sorry your friend Jenny is still being wierd. Don't let her ruin your weekend. Sucks that you are stuck together with things unresolved.

Gretch--good luck moving. Wish you were closer and I could help. We'd get it all done in one shot.

Jess---I wanna go to lunch with you!!! What's a good day?

So exciting! It is worth it to postpone a trip. You'll have a place you can enjoy and escape to, plus once things turn around with the market, I bet you can make a good chunk of money on it when you want to sell.

Jess--when you bought your airbed, how expensive was it? I was thinking of getting one for my guest room. My mom is coming up in October for a week. And...just maybe if we get the cabin I could use it on a few trips until we furnish the place.

I just want this work day to be over. I'm so excited for happy hour! I really missed having my work friends gone last week and I can't wait to have a few drinks and catch up a bit!

Today starts my new happy hour drinking policy. One martini and then switch to beer. Even though the martinis are a bargain at $5 each, domestic beers are only $2, so I can save a lot of money this way while still enjoying myself. Plus I won't get too tipsy or be hungover the next day!

I want to say it was about $120 from QVC. It was Aerobed brand, was an elevated queen size mattress, and came with the pump. I was really happy with it - I slept on it every night for a year before it started leaking.

Target sometimes has good deals, but just make sure you note whether it comes with the pump or not. I found one that I thought was an awesome deal, but then noticed you had to buy the pump separately. Not a big deal, but importance to factor in when comparing prices.

They don't seem to have the one I had gotten, but this one looks nice:
AeroBed Queen Sz Elevated Headboard Bed w/ AutoShut-Off Pump - QVC.com

A little pricier with the headboard, but that's a nice option!

I like your new policy! I'm glad that your friends are back!

OOOOF. I'm all queasy. This purchase will seriously postpone our trip to Scotland and Ireland. We talked last night and think it's definitely worth it. A good investment. I'm just so nervous now.
Oh my gosh! I'm saying prayers for you guys right now! Very exciting!

I don't know if you'll have cell reception, but if you do, feel free to vent via text so they don't know what you're saying!
Ditto to what Jess said! Feel free to text away! Hopefully it won't be as bad as you think. {{{HUGS}}}

I spotted that when I looked online. What a deal until I read the fine print 'pump sold seperately'. Looks like Walmart has 2-3 styles. Cheaper than Target w/pump.

I may need to go wander the hall upstairs and see if anyone's got anything in their offices that I can steal!

This one looks pretty good! It's got the same kind of pump that mine had and was really easy to use:
AeroŽ Products International, Inc.
