Thanks

You can fill out the FAFSA online, so I would imagine you can download them as well.

Thinking good thoughts for Elionwy and SeaMonkey.

I haven't seen Rynna online at all anywhere so I'm thinking seamonkey truly is coming. poor Rynna, I know she's disappointed that he's coming early. I'm worried about them both.

I'm thinking of you Rynna!!


I finally got the call back! Moving into that house is final! She said to give everyone notice that we're moving, and our move in date is Feb 1st! I cannot tell you how much we've wanted this for YEARS!

I have 13 days to pack. Moving 11 days before my due date!

asianyoushi I hope they respond well to the news. At least you aren't living in denial like me. I will test eventually, I just don't want to face the facts.

I hope that if there is a brand new SeaMonkey we have a very healthy little one added to our group.

We're not very close. They've never even met my 2 year old. Toxic people get the boot in the arse in my life.

Don't worry about the toxic people; you have more important things to think about.

Nature - is ... expecting!??? How did this happen and I didn't know?! Congrats!


And as for me, thanks for the congrats, all.




My friend's memorial is tomorrow.
I don't think I'm ready to accept that she's really gone.



And last night I found out my sister has cervical cancer.

I've had 3 "oops" babies so I do know. And I remember what telling your parents is like at a young age. I got pregnant with Madyson at 18 and had her at 19 and was single with no father around. Got pregnant with Sara unmarried and married him because of it at 23. Got pregnant with Grace 3 months before separating from my husband. So I do know what it's like to not be so certain you are happy about the pregnancy but I personally felt much better a month or so down the road. I accepted it and actually got excited about each pregnancy at a certain point and I'm happy about each baby. I don't mean to say that I would go back and do it all over again the exact same way but I love my children and I wouldn't trade them for anything, regardless of how they came to be. I know you will love this baby regardless of the situation too even if it takes you a while to get there. It's just hard at first. Maybe heading to the thrift store and buying a teeny outfit would help you get excited???? Or at least give you something to hang up in your closet and remind you that a tiny life is a blessing even if it's hard??? I did that and it really helped during the hard times when I was panicked about making ends meet and how I was going to feed one more mouth when I could barely feed the two I already had plus my own.

no buying tiny outfits- right now i need to sell my kids small stuff. even clothes that are bigger sizes then what dd is in now..(i have 4t and 5t stuff) up on diaperswappers just hoping someone buys it so we can pay off debt. our lease is up in november and we are gonna have to move. hopefully by then our credit score wont be as shot to H### like it is now. all my kids were oops- ashlyn was oops need to get married now. - walked down the aisle 5 months preggo. alex was oops- we were living at my parents house. and dh decided to walk out on me and ashlyn to have an affair with a psycho coworker. and now... it just seems odd. God really screwed up this time around.- as u can see in my siggie my best friend and her husband were expecting their first and she lost the baby the day i got my bfp...
