Sunshine! And Puppies! And Rainbows!

     I know it was for the best, but it honestly still bothers me when I think that I could be miserable right now, but my girls would have both parents.Bec, from what you've said here, your girls actually prefer having both parents separately (since their dad is a dead beat) AND having your awesome FI!!! Listen, my parents got divorced when I was three. I thank God every single day that they did because I know that's the only reason I turned out to be the person I am today, and a large part of that is due to my stepdad. I still see my dad, but I am glad that I had a true father figure growing up. I didn't appreciate him as much while he was making rules while I was growing up, of course, but I would not change a single thing about it. Never doubt that not only are they better off, they appreciate what you did for them.

    Don't forget that she's also nice so not only do you hate her for being so perfect, you also feel like a huge diick for hating her because she's so nice.No kidding.  Thanks for f*cking up my mind, Expat!  I hope you're happy!!!Bec, I'm pretty sure your girls are going to be super well adjusted.  As someone who also came from a "broken" home, the best thing my mom did was leaving my douche of a dad.  You get mad mom-props.

    "Is there anything about my resume or this interview process so far that makes you think that I am not the right person for this position?"That is actually a really great line.  I'm going to tell my brother to use that since he's looking for a new job.

    Bec - My parents have been divorced since I was 7 and never once in my life have I wished that they were still together. Plus look at the wonderful family that you are going to have with FI and your daughters. Your girls are so lucky to have you AND him.

    I wish we could all get along...like we used to in middle school. I wish I could bake a cake, filled with rainbows, and smiles, and everyone would eat it and be happy...

    So Lala, are these feelings the sunshin and puppies and rainbows kind, or the "Wow, you should really go see somebody about that" kind.

    I've never seen Gilmore Girls, but you are one of a lot of people who've said I'm like the mom, including my older daughter. I think I need to watch this. Thanks for the compliment!

    I'm late to this thread, and somewhat new to the board, but I really like chatting with everyone on here. Lala, you are my all time fav!  You always make me laugh.  Following a close second would be Moose, Fishy, Salt, and Bec, Vally, and Vicmo!  But really, i love everyone on this board so far

    Geez. I can't believe this love fest is still going on. Is anybody pregnant yet? Oh and I think verona and meaghanandmichael are real purdy.

    Bwhau! I'm so late but: SarahSmile - Your H looks like Ben Affleck in your siggy. Yup, definitely humpable! TJ - Your one lines make me snort. Out loud. Buttaflai and Bec - Your DIY awesomeness is so fabulous. Buttaflai, I do stalk your bio daily. Bec you are an amazing mama. Nugget - I love the Mac n' Cheese. My friend wanted the recipe and I didn't give it to her because she is going to Canada next summer. P2 - I want your hair and your bangs. I have wanted bangs like that since high school but I’m too nervous since I have a cowlick. I also love the term "bitchin' birthing box" and will thus use it in my everyday vocabulary. Ha! Fish - You always bring the funny. I too hope to one day make the siggy pic. A girl can only dream... Piper and Username - You intrigue me. Who are you? Dani and Ring Pop - You are ALWAYS nice. I love the advice you give, even to the “can I throw my own shower” questions! Salt - I love the mad photoshop skills. Your siggy pics always make me laugh! Georgia - I love that you always tell it like it is! BAM! TiDa - I love your siggy pic and wish you would post more and make a bio! ffmaid - I love that you never make an effort to correct your spelling even though you get so much shiit for it. Alixa and Meaghan - Your dresses are both gorgeous. Your weddings both looked so classy and like a million bucks! Ricksang - I love your boobs and the random fruit shaped heart. Just the other day, I was thinking that I need a new siggy pic. I was going to upload my own fruit shaped heart, but then saw that you beat me to it. Epic Failure! I know I forgot others! I don’t know what I would do without this board at work!
