some of the useless bastards who murdered my brother are in jail and the rest are on heavy surety and braceleted.

His oldest son (My nephew Ryan, who was with his Dad when he was brutally murdered) is living with me and mine, which is a very good thing, because prior to that he was bouncing around from bed to bed and indulging in self destructive behaviour. He was in such a state that we had trouble reeling him in.We've convinced him to get trauma/grief counselling.

His wife (my sil) and the other three (young adult) kids are slowly trying to return to a normal existence. all of us are signed up for counselling. My brother's fam and mine have become super tight (we were all with him when he died and that right there creates an incredible bond and intimacy, so we are sustaining and holding each other up.) Court is still a long way off, but we are all steeling ourselves for that.

I know it all sounds dreadful, but it's all good stuff, when you consider that less than 2 months ago we were all reeling in horror and grief, and feeling like there was no way to move forward.

g has been absolutely wonderful, I honestly don't know what I would have done without him, he is a total rock and has been so helpful and giving to my bro's family. He is the best Click here to enlarge

My kids are thriving, Riley is a great kid, grade 11 and honours. Dylan is working long hours on his apprenticeship and returns to College next year to do that part.They couldn't be more of a joy to g and me.

Adult kids all fine and gkids thriving as well. Click here to enlarge

Dubby I am so sorry for your loss. Click here to enlarge

I'm still in the most challenging year of my life to date but I am thankful we are healthy, my kids are happy and thriving and that I still have a roof over my head. Every day is a struggle but I'm trying not to dwell in the negative and envisioning the light at the end of the tunnel. One foot in front of the other and all that.

Oakapella just made my week. Best thing ever. Click here to enlarge

My biggest fear is that there is no PMS and that this is my personality.

There have been movies recently about acapella, Pitch Perfect and the sequel, Pitch Perfect 2. Also, the group Pentatonix is getting more radio play.

It finally feels like Fall here, which is good, since my AC has gone out and I can't get a service man out until Monday.

hahahaha I love this thread!

Both kids are awesome, they love their sports and school. DH has been working at their school and he really likes it even though it is really challenging. I've been feeling yucky healthwise for most of this year but I'm starting to feel better. Due to my acid reflux I finally lost the baby weight. Seven years later Click here to enlarge.

It's not a feeling, it's a knowing.

I'll buck the trend, I don't think her kids are all that in the cute department. not all kids are cute. they have other attributes that make up for that, but look at tweedle's aiden, that is a cute kid. and your kids mel, those are adorable kids. Her's are average. I wouldn't take a second look passing her on the street.

On a side note - dh turned 45 today and he finally made a Dr apt for a physical, now I am scared that the chest pains he keeps brushing off as minor and nothing might be something. He never goes to the Dr!
My dh did that this year.

Sleep apnea
diabetes
high blood pressure

Hope yours gets a better bill of health!

He is going to mention the sleep stuff too - I am certain he has sleep apnea so hopefully they schedule a sleep study.

Things are quite good these days. DD is fitting in much better at school and has a great small group of friends that all stick up for each other. She has embraced her nerdiness and refuses to conform to fit in. She's a great kid and we laugh our way through life. I genuinely love to spend time with her and she loves my company too.

DS just started Jr. Kindergarten this year and he LOVES school. He goes to the same school as my DD and it has made drop off and pick ups so much easier. He is a really great kid and is developing quite the sense of humour. I love this age Click here to enlarge

DH got a permanent job after being out of work for almost a year. I just interviewed for a position with my company internally and the interview went really well. I'm so proud of myself. I've really come out of my shell and comfort zone and I'm a much more confident person these days. I became a leader with my DD's Pathfinder unit and have the position of treasurer. Being a leader is way out of my comfort zone and not something I ever thought I would do but I'm enjoying it so much and am being a role model for my DD who also struggles with anxiety but who pushes herself daily to come outside her comfort zone as well Click here to enlarge

I am eating much better and down almost 50 pounds from my highest weight.

DH and I celebrated 20 years recently. We continue to adore each other, annoy each other and laugh through every day. He is really my best friend.

Oh and I won the 50/50 draw at work today so I have some nice pocket money for the weekend Click here to enlarge
