  1. That is a hard question to answer. My first thought was yes, I wish my dh was still here with us. I wish for the life we had before he passed. I wish he was able to meet his last 3 grandkids. He would have been our rock this past year when we had 2 grandsons in the NICU. I try and be grateful and content for what life is right now. Sometimes that's harder than at other times.
  2. Thank you all for the responses to my question between tub surround and tile up to ceiling. I am going with tile. Next question, shower curtain or frameless shower door. I hate the shower doors in the past with the frames, but the frameless might be ok. Any thoughts?
  3. I am going to be remodeling my bathroom. A complete gut job. It is a small bathroom. I am trying to decide whether to put a tub surround around the tub or to tile it all the way up to the ceiling. It would be probably something simple like a subway tile with a mosiac strip all the way around. I would also do at least one insert type shelf like you see on the home shows. I am trying to modernize the bathroom in case I am needing to sell the house in a few years. Which do you prefer?
  4. My son and daughter-in-law both came down with it right after their son was born and needed surgery. So, in addition to their son being in the NICU, they were not allowed to be with him. It was heartbreaking, they had to stay away for 6 days. They had just a few in their mouth, mostly down their throat. My son was most affected on his feet. They were very bad. He lost all his toenails. My DIL did not get it quite so bad, mostly on her hands.
  5. Thanks everyone. I used some of your wording on goggle and on the US Department and Health and Human Services it state that a parent can keep a child on their insurance even if the are eligible to enroll in their employers plan.
  6. My 18 year old son works part time and his employee offers health insurance. He is on my COBRA plan for another 13 months. When my husband passed away and I was looking at my healthcare options, even though COBRA was expensive it made the most sense because I had coverage for 6 people. It has very low deductibles and out of the pocket maximums. It doesn't make sense for him to take this insurance. I know before Obamacare if they were offered insurance from an employer they had to take it and mine became secondary. From what I have read, that is no longer the case. They have to option to take the employers or remain on their parents. Does anyone know if my interpretation of this is correct? I would call the union office through which the insurance is through, but they don't always tell you the correct information, if you know what I mean. It doesn't make sense that he use alot of his pay, when he is on my plan. The enrollment period for his insurance ends tomorrow.
  7. My dd is going to be working a 13 week temporary OTA position in Fort Stockton, Texas. She leaves at the end of the week. It is 16 hours away from home. Makes me a little nervous. Does anyone live or know anything about Fort Stockton?
  8. Ever since my husband died I have the hardest time making big final decisions. Well some not so big, I even struggle choosing paint color! I need a new washer/dryer. Have to buy one today. I originally was going with LG front loaders. The more research I did, the more confused I got. I'm not quite sure why I'm having such a hard time, because if my husband was still alive he would have left the decision up to me. So help me out here. My first choice would be front loader, but would consider top loaders. If you love your washer/dryer tell me what brand you have and how reliable its been, Thanks so much in advance.
  9. I need a new washer and dryer. In my research on brands I have come across Electrolux being highly rated. I was originally going to go with LG. Does anyone have any experience, good or bad, of either brand?
  10. I have lost both of my parents and my brother took his own life seven years ago. None of this prepared me for the grief of losing my dh suddenly 2 years ago. I have learned so much about grief these past 2 year. It is not something you "get over". I don't miss him any less than I did 2 years ago. Grief is lonely, overwhelming, and heartbreaking. It takes alot of hard work everyday not to let grief win. I am so sorry for your losses.
  11. By dh died very unexpectedly 2 years ago. We married at 18 and were married for 38 years. He truly was the love of my life. I still view myself as his wife, if that makes any sense. I agree with others that I've had the best and it would not be fair to compare, even though the loneliness is unbearable at times.
  12. I have 10 kids. When #6 came along they were age 9 and under. I have a 5 year gap between #6 and #7. So when my last 4 were born my older kids were teenagers and they had chores which helped alot. But even when I had 6 ages 9 and under my household was nothing like you describe. I did not, nor did I need help managing my household. We did all the cleaning, cooking, laundry, and homeschooling ourselves. About the only help was when we needed an babysitter and then it as mostly my mother-in-law. Did I at times feel overwhelmed, absolutely, but those times were rare.
  13. I am needing to get a new washer and dryer. I'm just not sure what I want, am considering either top loader or front loader. I am leaning toward a front loader. I have had a Maytag Bravos top loader washing machine and dryer for the last 12 years that I have been pretty happy with. Has had a few repairs and now needs more and its not worth it to put any more money into them. (I am not really interested in getting a speed queen.) In my research, the most reliable brands seem to be LG, Kenmore, and Maytag. So any recommendations would be appreciated.
