... Maybe I have a strange vision of heaven but I picture meeting all my favorite posters from these boards in heaven someday. Somehow that thought makes the afterlife seem a little more inviting for me. We should have quite a bit to talk about. ;) Being happy is the key whether it involves us or our children. One question, would you have met Tom if you didn’t go to college?... (81 replies)
... OOPS....too late :eek: Already did....only I said, "What goes around comes around" or something to that effect ;) The good thing about grandkids though, Heartland, is that you get to sent them home when you've had enough :bouncing: :bouncing: Kids you gotta keep and even when they go away for a period of time they still come back :eek: And like TG says....I know Tom...

... Didn't realize that there were all different kinds...but I would imagine that they exist only on large campuses.....is this ture??? Like I said, I think K would do best in a college that is smaller where she won't get sucked up in it all and be able to meet some close friends. Funny, that I would categorize her as on the shy side but that's how she tends to be until she... (217 replies)

... This sentence typified our experiences with our meanagers; you are not alone. :rolleyes: At that stage, it’s quite hard to visualize them as upstanding citizens and becoming good parents. There is no better proof that we must depend on God to architect their transition into adulthood since we know they’ll do just the opposite of what we recommend. :angel: Yes and No… You...

... BINGO!!!! That's what Tom and I, as well as our neighbor are afraid of!!! She has progressively allowed this job to become the most important thing in her life. Even to the point of not switching a day because it interferes with family plans, a good friend's birthday, with excuses like "I can't let my boss down" or "I may get fired" or "My job is everything to me & all you...

... Thanks, Heartland. ;) K. has been spending her time balanced between friends and family. I am a little nervous because alot of it has been spent with D. who is now driving full time. She spent a few nights with us and took K. back to SB to spend the night by her. It makes me a little nervous because she is the one who knows where the parties are and will bring K. with...

... Thanks Singer for you kind words of support. I have come a long way since I first started this thread but you are right about sticking to your guns in guiding our teens. In fact, they may not readily admit it but they are looking for that "NO" from us in order to remove some of the peer pressure from their lives. Thanks again for you support....us moms never get enough of... (217 replies)

... My dear CBF....I am certain that MBF has effectively described a woman's feelings in terms of the worry & concerns involved in a missing paycheck. And you yourself see that your reserves are dwindling which a woman sees as her future. We women need a healthy balance between love & security....I must say that I have been fortunate but in a sense for the first time worry about... (217 replies)

... Personally, Heartland, alot of the stuff on TV I find nasty and containing alot of garbage. All the reality shows seem to have taken over and the only shows that I find remotely interesting are 24 and a new sereis the 4400 which shows on USA. Tom & I luckily both like these and for the most part he likes Discovery channel and the History channel and SciFi channel....which I... (217 replies)
... Wow, I actually never thought of it that way & thank you for what I perceive as a compliment ;) In her cool way when asked it's because they allow all students to have a car :D But then, most of the colleges we've researched, do as well. I really don't think that's the only thing...she has also managed to point out, in her intelligent and cool way :cool: , that all... (19 replies)

... No but, in my life a few of the miracles, that I have had privy to, did in fact come about that way.....at least the last two did ;) That’s exactly what I meant when I said “it’s what’s you’ve taught them in the past, not what you can change now.” Fortunately, K. has been well-schooled by a great mom and dad. :angel: I know that I have always tried to teach them...

... Goody, it’s one thing to hope for a miracle but to start expecting them?!?! :eek: May the Force be with you! Our girls usually dated very nice boys; the kind even a dad couldn’t dislike. I usually asked the boy about their plans for the evening (like that did any good). BTW, the scruffiest-looking boy turned out to be one of the cleanest and nicest so appearances didn’t...

... OK.....haven't had the best of weekends. Guess we're approaching the next hill of the rollercoaster ride. K. was on restriction for totally ignoring her dad's and my instructions regarding the movement of furniture between hers and her sister's bedrooms. In the past within her own room she has managed to rip up carpeting so when her & her sister were talking about switching... (217 replies)

... Goody, K reminds me so much of one of our daughters. Based on my experiences, I never expected K to “straighten up and fly right” in spite of your positive reports. I’ll stick with my thoughts in post #13 (13! :eek: ) on this thread. It feels like you’re in hand-to-hand combat, doesn’t it. You have to make many decisions during the heat of the argument. These...

She is married and a pretty decent person...we have had some problems in the past in terms of childrearing.
