  1. Yeah, from what I understand, the first year is not “fun” but definitely worth it!
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. 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!
  5. 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.
  6. Do you own a tent? Move furniture around and set it up in your living room. The kiddos can bring all their stuffies in and play in there. Even when my kids were bored, everything seems more magical in a tent!
  7. I’m just grateful that now I can see some of the details better on some of these emojis! (As she takes off her Costco reading glasses because she can actually see without them!) 😊
  8. I guess I need to go out this weekend and do some shopping! I started a new job in October in a very professional, conservative office. Prior to that, I was a SAHM who wore mostly jeans, a white t-shirt, and a cardigan sweater. So basically, I had to buy an entire new wardrobe to wear to work. I bought 2 suits (grey and navy jacket, pants, skirt) and 7 tops, which I mix and match weekly. Sounds like I need to go buy 3-5 (or more) tops!
  9. I have no advice here, but an endless amount of love and support for each of you going through this.
  10. Woo Hoo!!! I’m so happy for you! Praying for similar news soon for our other boardies going through this!
  11. I am totally spoiled in this regard, but my office of 10 employees has a full-sized fridge, pebble-ice machine, microwave, sink, toaster, Kuerig, hot & cold water dispenser, and then lots of drawers and cupboards full of snacks (single-serve cookies & crackers) and paper goods. They also keep the fridge stocked with whatever soda or drink you request. Granted, a lot of the employees are putting in 10-hour days, but it’s still pretty great!
  12. Purse, car, nightstand, office. I could definitely use a few more!
  13. I literally cheered when I read this - I’m so glad you can have some income while being able to be with your son - the best of all worlds! Like others said above, people want to show their love to you by stepping up and helping, so don’t deprive them of that opportunity! There is no weakness in that. You’re doing great Stella - every day will get incrementally better and you will be able to look back and see how far you’ve come!
  14. Praying for you Stella, and for your son, your partner, and all of your family.
  15. Oh, you have no idea how much I needed these tonight! They’re all so adorable!
