    Lindabates, you got this for sure!! Take a deep breath in through your nose and blow it out nice and slow. With everything else in your life that you juggle so well (and that's just what you've mentioned here that we know about), the test will be a piece of cake in comparison.

    Thanks for your kind words about my DW. Ascherer, hope your Momma is doing well and enjoys her trip!

    COUPON4ME- I've been single since my boys were 3 and 5. They are now 39 and 41. They both graduated college. One got married, but is now divorced. He is the father of my two grandsons. They all make it worth it. If I had never married I wouldn't have my sons and grandsons. Take it one day at a time and remember to count your blessings. It took me a long time to realize I was better off alone than with the wrong one. Unfortunately most of us grew up with the Cinderella Complex. I wish I'd had Faye's coupon guidance back then.

    LINDABATES - Hope you got a laugh at our exam ordeal in "the good old days". LOL. I'm sure you'll do great!

    LindaBates - you will ace the exam. No doubt about it. Take your time when taking the exam and I'm sure you will ace it! Let us know how it goes.

    JDouglas - Happy to hear that your DW is home.

    Happy Tuesday everyone!

    LindaBates - You will rock your exam. During the exam, relax and read every word of the question.

    JDouglas - I'm glad your DW is home. I hope she continues to improve.

    As for dinner, I have no clue but probably breakfast. Momma and my Aunt & Uncle left for their trip bright and early this morning. I am still trying to figure out what is here for me and the cats to eat. I know there will be a Kroger run for cat food before the day is over.

    Happy Tuesday everyone.

    ybaverage2003 - so well said!!

    GJan1 - that is great advice and what a funny Towering Inferno story!

    coupon4me - I am sure it took a lot to share such a personal situation with us and like everyone else has offered, we are here for you. My heart goes out to you and your boys. There is nothing easy about divorce, that is certain, but it sounds like you have a great attitude moving forward. As Jdouglas wrote, it will get better. MUCH better. Sending you lots of hugs and positive thoughts. Feel free to send me an e-mail if you want to chat.

    lindabates - YOU GOT THIS!! Good luck on your medical assistant certification exam tomorrow morning and let us know how it goes.

    jdouglas13 - I am so glad your DW is back home!
