  1. So it went up and back your dead-end street at least 4 times, sat there while you were out by the curb and didn’t move until it saw you were leaving to go inside? I would have called the non-emergency number for the police about a suspicious car. There may be a lot of benign reasons for doing that, but a lot of non-benign reasons, too!
  2. Oh my heart! So sweet!
  3. A cruise sounds like a great idea - you can be as active as you want, or as relaxed as you want. We really like Princess or Royal Caribbean, but have heard good things about other lines as well. We always just book directly on the cruise website and there are deals to be had at times with onboard ship credit, etc. Happy planning!
  4. I love everything about your post. Praying your sweet DS and his sweet Snoopy will be together through it all for many years to come!
  5. I have one in my bathroom on the tile floors. It makes blow-drying my hair and getting ready so much less painful on my lower back and hips.
  6. Okay, all y’all are so awesome! Thank you so much for the help - lots of good possibilities here. I really appreciate it! Reason #54,871 why I love the Hive: shopping help when I have hit a wall and cannot find what I want. I can always picture in my head what I want, but can’t ever seem to find it in real life!
  7. Apparently what I want does not exist! I need a professional-looking tote bag that has the following: navy blue (prefer dark navy rather than lighter almost royal blue) real leather zipper top to keep things inside must hold a 3-inch, 3-ring binder (approx 11.5”x11.5”x4”) Open area - no center laptop sleeve Straps long enough to wear on my shoulder less than $350 (prefer less than that, but will pay more to get what I want). If you are bored and want to look, or know of something that would fit, links would be hugely appreciated!!!!!
  8. My family and I were there just 3 weeks ago. My husband lived in Paris for two years in college and it was his first time back. I’m so grateful my boys were able to see it. Hopefully this will post - mass was just ending when we walked in and the organ music was so beautiful. It was the first European cathedral my boys had ever been inside and they just stood there in awe. A5CF4B2C-A56D-4E36-9988-0C1C56134AF4.MOV
  9. Yep, just a lot of things get dropped. I started a full-time job in October and work between 50-55 hours a week. Before that, I was a SAHM for 20 years so the whiplash has been pretty extreme. My standards for a spotless house, fantastic healthy dinner, time with friends, etc. have dropped dramatically. My hubs and teens have been really great about stepping it up to help pitch in, and my Saturdays are now crazy trying to get all the things done that didn’t get done during the week. I feel like I’m still working on finding the balance.
  10. I’m so glad you got it out! TWICE now in the last year, I have been taking out my contacts and one ripped in half, leaving half a contact stuck in my eye. I had to go to an optometrist so they could fish out the ripped piece. Very painful! After the second time, I switched contact brands even though I still had two boxes left - I didn’t want it to happen a third time! I haven’t had any problems since.
  11. Yeah, from what I understand, the first year is not “fun” but definitely worth it!
  12. Who is your cell phone carrier? Verizon has a thing where you can pay $10 per day and your phone works exactly like it would as if you were home as far as internet use, making calls, etc. We have found it worthwhile to have on at least one phone.
  13. I’m so glad to hear you’re finally getting the help you need! My moment like that came after my oldest DS was diagnosed with a condition that meant multiple surgeries, a very painful recovery, and basically losing several years of his life as he knew it. Shortly after meeting with all the specialists, we saw our pediatrician for a routine check up, and he put his hand on my shoulder (it was fine - we had been seeing him regularly for 17 years), looked me in the eye, and said, “I’m so sorry you’re going through this.” It was the first time someone acknowledged the emotion behind everything and it meant so much to me. I’m praying for lots of good help and a complete recovery for your DS!
  14. DS got an email yesterday that he has been appointed to the United States Air Force Academy. Needless to say, there was much cheering, dancing around and crying (with joy!) at my house. Attending a service academy has been his goal for the last 7+ years He is still waiting to hear from the Naval Academy, but is 99% sure he will accept and go to Air Force!
  15. I’m totally agreeing with you! I swear the last two months have been the longest year of my life! I’m tired of the cold, the dark days, the overcast dreariness and the snow. I’m pretty sure I live in the wrong state, but alas, this is where my family, friends, and jobs are.
