Since the first time I visited this board about 4 years ago, seeking guidance from the women here, I can now look back and say I've come a long way.

I used to be so unsure I could handle this sort of thing.

I'm glad things are going well for you! Congrats on your engagement and thanks for sharing the poem. I hope his deployment goes by really quickly for you guys. Have you set a date for the wedding?

The boards seems to have slowed down a lot since an update that was done about a year ago now. It was a big change to the format and some people just didn't like it, so they stopped coming. :(

I can understand about not wanting to rush your life while he's gone. It really is amazing how many things can happen during that one year while they are going. Last year when my DH was deployed, our oldest learned how to ride his bike (without training wheels) and to tie his shoes. He also started teaching himself cursive.

Congrats on the engagement! It's amazing what we can do when we really want something. As for the slowness of the board... I blame Facebook. LOL

What a great update, Carol! It's good to hear from you! (And I'm glad I could help you so much when you needed it.)

Yes, things are very slow around here. Many of our regulars -- including myself -- have been busier than they used to be, and quite honestly, I think the board changes have done a lot of damage. I've heard a lot people say they don't like the new format, and I've heard other regulars say they stopped coming because of constant issues with logging in. I also heard a murmur or two about our board being difficult to find if it wasn't bookmarked. It's sad, but that's how it goes. Sometimes things are busy around here, and sometimes they're not.
