I would like to first let you know that this board is not near as active as a lot of ivillage boards, so with that in mind, don't be surprised if it takes a while for the members to respond to your threads.
I would like to say I am sorry, I usually check this board at least 4 times a week, though last week was a bit busy for me and then I ended up without internet over the weekend.
I would also like to say welcome, and I am glad you reflected on your situation and resolved it. Sometimes we can do more than we expect once we clear our heads. :-)
