Hey Tisha. I know what you mean about expensive rents. We live in a college town so rents here are much higher so my son and his girlfriend can't afford here but could possibly afford lower rents further out in the country. The problem with that is that they both work close to home and moving anywhere else they could afford would add an hour commute to work. It is so hard for young people today. When my younger daughter finally got her job in New Jersey, it was only part time but she had looked for over a year and this job was in her field and a good opportunity plus she would be closer to home so we encouraged her to take it. Since the job is two hours from us, she had to move there and we helped her pay her rent for a few months. She was able to get anther part time job as a tutor at a community college so that helped until her part time job went fulltime so now she is able to make ends meet and still kept her part time tutoring job. I hope your daughter and her boyfriend are able to find something although I bet you are happy to have her with you. I don't mind my son and his girlfriend being here. They keep to themselves pretty much but one thing I would wish for would be that they both could pick up behind themselves a bit more. Especially his girlfriend. I would hope that if either of my girls or even my son for that matter were in the same situation, that they would be more tidy than she is. My solution is to give them both a trash bag and say it is time to pick up the den where they watch TV and play video games. I can overlook the untidiness because she is really a lovely girl who keeps my son in line and he is very happy so that makes me happy!!!! Sounds like you had a lovely time in England over the holidays. It was good that you got to see your mom. I miss my mom all the time but mostly during Christmas which was her favorite holiday and she always overdid everything at that time, presents, food, decorations. We had some friends living in Bristol for a while for his work and we wanted to try to get over to see them but never happened during the 3 years they were there and now they are back in the States. I am so so so so so so glad you are going to be on SP more. I have really missed you!! Kudos on the weight loss!!! I am still trying to get off the 20 pounds I gained back. That darn old scale will just not move down although I am glad it is not going up!!
Please keep in touch!! It was so good to hear for you and catching up!!! I really have missed you and really glad to see you back!!
Hi Tisha, so good to hear from you. And what wonderful news that your daughter is pregnant although sorry to hear that she had a miscarriage in early December. She has been through so much, poor baby!! . More than keeping fingers crossed for her I will send lots and lots of and light candles. Anything that will work.
And happy birthday to her. I think I remember that her birthday was around the same time as my younger daughter who turned 27 yesterday. OMG, they grow up way too fast, don't they? My oldest daughter will be 31 this June, still can't believe that!! My son, my baby just turned 24. Still here with us. He and his girlfriend would love to move out but neither of them can afford it.
We did not get much snow from that storm that the weather forecasters kept telling us was going to be historic, storm of the century and many more descriptions meant to scare the viewers. My younger daughter lives at the beach in New Jersey and they got the most of it in our area about 8 inches of snow. The storm went further up the coast than expected so Long Island in New York and New England area got most of it.
Really wonderful news about Cheryla. I hope she is feeling well and no morning sickness.
Please keep in touch and let me and Barb know how you and Cheryla are doing!!! I have missed you!!!
