I have a kid who will be ready for some college courses within the next year. She's 12. She is not, however, ready for college/university. In fact, I don't see her being ready to live on her own...

My husband needs to book his flight home for Thursday- if they hadn't messed up his paycheck, we could have booked it sooner and it would have been cheaper. *grumble*

Otherwise, we are doing ok....

I have to laugh at this now. Because there was a glitch with my husband's pay this week- and he got NO overtime, and NO per diem. They say they should have it corrected on the next check in the...

I think i's great- if they were looking to drive people away from MDC. It's clunky, they have removed a couple useful bits, and frankly, I am usually ok with change, but this is just- awkward.

It will eventually work its way through.  I haven't ever gotten CS from my ex, but he's in arrears up to his eyeballs.  I stopped caring whether or not he paid about 10 years ago and life was far...

We did a 'grab what you want' evening.  It was supposed to be chicken noodle soup, but I didn't get that far today.  Tuna sandwiches and random veggies with dip were the go to.
