It sounds like a few of us need to sit down and have a glass of wine and a good old fashioned "hen party". Uh oh...is that a bad term? Y'all know what I mean don't you? We should all meet up in the Virtual Cafe at a specific time and share some stories and good times.

Absolutely Alix! A hen party and wine on hand sounds good for me too. It's been one of those exhausting days cleaning runny noses, putting out high fevers and cooking chicken soup for little Christopher. I get so stressed when the kids get sick on me. How 'bout I skip my medication tonight and have a drink to relax? Not a bad idea...going to fix me one.

I am getting cold feet about buying a house. It is STILL being remodeled, and in the month and a half of waiting..... It would be great to own a house, but my payment will go up so much that after putting the usual monthly $ in savings, retirement, college savings, and investments, then I am down to dang near living paycheck to paycheck. And then unwilling/unable to spend the money "make it homey". A house is an investment I know, but not sure if it is worth the unhappiness of feeling overstretched right now in my life? And I am a budget, plan-ahead, be financially prepared for anything FREAK! If I do not feel "safe and secure", it unnerves me!

OK ladies...all of you who are online right now, go get your favourite beverage and meet in the Virtual Cafe. I'll set up the loungers on the patio. I have a Mikes Hard Lime calling my name, give me 5 minutes and I will be there. It is currently 2023hours MST, do your calculations for your own time zone. See you there!
