Thank you, everyone! I'm so excited. Hoping it sticks
I really appreciate all the assurance re: money. It is really only this situation, with the check from his old company bouncing, that is causing problems. Mark was able to talk to someone there and hopefully it will be cleared up in the next day or two. We are lucky to have been pretty financially stable the last year or so. I was very, very poor raising Clementine by myself, and we struggled a bit until Mark got the job here last year. I completely agree that as long as you have love and support you can be happy. Clementine looks back on the time we lived in a studio apartment and had less than $100 a week to live on with extreme fondness, and I do too. And all throughout the money troubles we had our first few years together, Mark and I were madly in love and so happy to have each other. We knew we'd make it through. It wasn't even that hard.
Good to hear from you, WaterMama, how are you feeling?
