My Dad died in 2008.  My Mom died in July.  I so wish they were here to celebrate what would have been their 60th anniversary in October.   Until a stroke took my Mom's memory and a small one took Dad's cognitive reasoning, they never forgot our anniversary, nor that of my siblings.  Birthdays were always remembered with a phone call and a card.   I took flowers to their grave on their anniversary date (as I do in their birthdays).  Same goes for Christmas (swag...
  Maybe they had concerns as to their wedding date and the birth of a child??  Perhaps it was less than 9 months.   The Golden Jubilee anniversary is for 50 years of marriage.  It seems rude not to even take the time to know how many years they were celebrating, especially as they are your grandparents and you attended the event.. 
Yes, reply in your email that your friends homeschool  Better yet, phone the program coordinator and talk to him/her directly.  They are incredibly busy at this time of year and can't remember everyone personally!  Remind them of your friend's situation.  Your friend may have to contact them, rather than going through a third party (you).       Why would your friend have any problems with this??
  If both couples have allergies to Couple A's animals, then why on earth would they invite you over for any get together?  I see no problem with this.        Why didn't you speak up about the children's behaviour.  Nobody can take advantage of you without your permission.  Tell the little rugrats to haul-in and slow down.  Your house, your rules.  As far as the 18 month old, well, some babies/toddlers DO play with their food and you should expect this as a possibility...
Okay, sorry you are going through this.  Eldercare issues + family issues + raising your child in a less-than-ideal environment is NOT easy.    Why have you mived into this situation?  Are you to become the primary caregiver to your grandmother?  Does the house belong to her?   If you Mom is so upset with caring for her own Mother, why is she doing so?  Does Mom not have a place to live?   You have stepped into an area where you will no longer be the...
Hey, Gumby,   Don't worry about holding onto those ashes for as long as you want.  If the time comes that you are ready to bury or scatter them, it will be the right time.  Don't let anyone tell you it is wrong to hold onto them!!   My Mom's ashes are sitting on our living room bookcase, in a beautiful canopic jar (Anubis, as she loved dogs).  She died in July.  We divided her ashes into two urns (plus, a couple of pieces of jewelry designed to hold ashes).  One...
We live outside a very small town (located in very rural, mountainous environment).   The majority of teens in our area are into horses & 4-H, hunting, fishing, camping, skiing (downhill & cross country) and other outdoor activities.  Many workout at the local fitness center (they get significant student discounts).  Fair week and rodeos are BIG, here!   Being a small community, teen jobs are minimal (a lot of kids "work" on their family ranches and farms).  But,...
Thanks!!  Found it, but "Edit Thread" is in such really tiny letters, I hadn't even noticed it!  Now I know!
Oops!  I also found out I can't edit the thread title!!    I MEANT to say:  New MDC format....   The general set-up looks pretty much the same.   Personally, I don't like the new colour for the background and thread titles.  The light blue is harder on my eyes (they're not great to begin with!).   If anyone knows of a way to change the background and font colour, let me know!!
For those of you that are "hoping" the courts will decide your children would go to those they visit a lot, versus relatives, SEE A LAWYER!!  A godparent or frequently seen anyone is not a legal guardian.    Please, parent(s), if you want to make the decision as to where your children would go, in the event of your death(s), see a lawyer.  Wishes or the fact that someone is simply named as a godparent have nothing to do with the very real legalities of...
