    daB, you consistently impress me, whether with your words or attitude. I'm so glad you've found renewed life in the moment and are happy with you.

    I've really enjoyed catching up on everyone's lives in this thread - y'all are awesome. I've been waiting to make 100% sure it was going to work out before saying anything, but now I am, so here goes: we bought our first house! We're closing in 30 days, but not moving in until our lease is up in May. Thankfully, the current owners are willing to rent it back from us at cost until then so our mortgage gets paid and we don't lose any money by breaking our lease early. We're really excited (and scared since it's a huge investment)!

    Amen sister! A few years ago a lot of hard lessons came my way and I decided to try my best to have the good things in my life, to be a better person and to forgive/let go of/not dwell on the negative things. Another lesson came when someone had the audacity to come down on me in disbelief that I could possibly lead my life that way, but it only made me stronger. Yes, crappy things have still happened to me but I've learned to see them for what they are and keep it in perspective instead of letting them take over. Often times, those who wish to come down on you are doing so not because you are a bad person but because they lack happiness and good things in their own lives. It took me a long time to realize this and to stop beating myself up. I'm so happy you have begun to live in a happier place within yourself, stay strong and keep smiling!

    MFS - you're a wise and wonderful woman. Who says getting older is a bad thing - except for the body breaking down part - I love at least the wiser part of the life experience. Hugs to you - you're a beacon of light.

    You guys all make me smile!

    Moving day approaches for me. Friday is the big day! Just a little apartment, but it feels like the first step in the right direction. People from all directions keep telling us that we're moving too fast, but we know what we're getting into, and it just feels right. It's just hard hearing it from just about every direction. I should say, every direction except our moms and my friends.
    Move along, nothing to see here...

    A new direction, from someone who isn't a close friend: if it feels right and you know what you're getting into, then you're not moving too fast. Speed is relative and don't let other people force you to conform to their timelines. Good luck with your move!

    Thanks! We've been taking it all with a grain of salt. And for every person that's against it, there's another who isn't. I get their concerns though, I guess they wouldn't be good friends if they didn't say anything at all...
    Move along, nothing to see here...

    I'd like to hit the lottery big already, I need the operational cash to open up the worldwide string of Bed & Breakfasts I plan on owning.
    ...HEY! This isn't the Rogue's board! What the hell am I doing here!?! Stirring up trouble, that's what.

    You know - my hubby would like to do that too. Not the world wide chain or anything, but he just wants a B&B type thing where he can putter around and cook and stuff.

    But why do I have a sinking feeling that all of Ron's B&B will make you feel like you're being watched? Most of the moolah will be going to the spy camera systems. And only ladies will be allowed to stay there.
