Sonja, I had my reply all typed, but the computer erased it (maybe not a bad thing lol) so here goes my second try. :) I disagree with you completely. There is a mindset from some people to think that Child Pornography is 'just pictures' and 'no real harm' was done. I don't see it like that. Those p...

Prior to our move here, we lived in an area that was considered very wealthy. (Note - we were not wealthy at all, just happened into a good situation with an apartment complex that needed part-time computer work). Because I stayed at home with the girls, we had little extra money. As I figured out w...

We did do a bit of shopping. BUT, no credit cards. :) We had a sum of money that we receive in November. We used it to pay off my student loan, make some home improvements, sponsored a family for Christmas and then spent the rest mostly on our kids. :) Our kids have special needs and special diets a...

Thanks for the replies - sorry I haven't been around for a bit. Christmas and kids...my time has been spent with them or other family. :) I appreciate the support. Hubby has settled down a little. All of their friends are divorced or not married so it's hard to get another female perspective from th...

How often do you use your kitchen and how important is it to you? For us, the kitchen is major (we have a child with Celiac Disease so I cook quite a bit) and I consider any upgrades to it absolutely worth it. However, I wouldn't do it now for two reasons - 1. The holidays. 2. If you utilize your ki...

Thanks for the assurance that I'm not completely insane. I'm hoping that my husband will come to his senses as things settle down. It's still hard for me to believe that Idiot did all of this, so I know my husband is probably still in a bit of shock. Thanks again.

I'm a stay at home mom, so I have little experience regarding interviews. I do, however, network with a bunch of moms who have kids going through graduate school, program and job interviews and we discuss lots of scenarios. My initial thought would be that this could be worked to your advantage. I t...

I could forgive a financial crime. It was kiddie porn. (And to clarify, my husband was not involved in it though, since they were best friends and the only IT guys, he was questioned). I've shortened the story, but not left anything out. The only person who is denying that he is guilty is his wife. ...

Health care costs are our biggest expense. I agree with the above comments and also would like to add that I think they diagnose 'disability' too easily and quickly. I am partly biased, I have a daughter who cannot talk, feed, dress or bathe herself. she will need care for the rest of her life. She ...

I'd love to hear some feedback from the gentlemen in this forum (ladies too, if you want). I am having a disagreement with my husband. I'm typically patient and I try to be understanding, so I'm looking for agreement with my side or better understanding of his. My husband has a best friend (we'll ca...

Probably the last update on this situation. :) My husband had decided to talk to his mother about us taking it over with the understanding that if it caused relationship complications that we would give it back to her. Before that conversation happened, his mother called and told us that she feels a...

VinTek, thanks for replying. For clarification, I wouldn't replace the money manager (or the accountant or the lawyers, etc). I don't consider myself knowledgeable enough to do that and certainly not with her money. I think that would be a recipe for disaster. He would still be managing her money. (...

When I think comics, I automatically think x-men. :) Lately, I've been looking into graphic novels, particularly for the use of helping children with special needs learn how to read. (Actually, I've been purchasing quite a few to donate to my daughter's special ed classroom). All that to say, I know...

We've never screen/glassed in a porch, but I did want to say that having a porch area is good for the soul - it definitely helps keep my mental state in check. ;) Can you do any artwork for Christmas? Start taking orders? I am hopeless at art, but I can cook like a dream. I sell candy at Christmas t...
