I can go check if you want....

I just hate what it does to the kids. Once a couple has kids, they really do need to start thinking of those kids first. It's not to say they should loose themselves in being parents, there is a balance, but when push comes to shove the kids come first.
The kids didn't choose to be born, we chose to have them...

It'll be you and you'll be the one he dreams about......Mom can go find herself over the rainbow but he won't have dreams about her...........how can you leave your baby? Sorry, it's none of my business.......just glad that you're there to take care of him.....your son must be hurting, too......they're lucky to have you.......way lucky.............

ok, ignorance is bliss.....what;s a HVAC guy? I guess that AC stands for that there thing that turns us back into humans when it's hot as hades but what does the HV stand for?

It was my daughters birthday on the 22/06 and she turned 2. She is such a cutey, just watching her play with her toys and opening her presants makes me smile.

She is gorgeous, and full of life.

It's clouding over. My DH desperately needs it to rain for some of his research... here's hoping. That would make me smile.

Went to the grocery store with only my youngest...
Came home and the boys were waiting on the front step for me. :)
(It's only because they knew I had food I'll bet, but still cute!!)

Am thankful for the important reminder this thread brings.... to focus on the positive, when things are "difficult," can be a challenge... it's good to know inspiration can sometimes be only a click away if I need it...

The last thing that made me smile was my Australian Shepherd, Tessa coming onto the bed this morning and rolling over to "give me belly." She has the cleanest, whitest belly, her fur is like angel hair - she never smells funny and it's rare that she lets herself be this vulnerable. She's a rescue and has all sorts of issues, but is sooo sweet when she "visits" on the bed - also, she "talks" a bit - kind of graons/growls a little bit - such a big oaf! Thanks for letting me share....
