If you are married, How many years did you wait- if any - to have children after getting married?

Are there any things you miss doing before kids?  If so, what?

Is your life now what you expected it would be 10 or 20 years ago? 

At what point do you self actualize?  Do you believe in it?

What's on your agenda this week?

Funny Thardy, am I supposed to be all sad now because you don't think I have an actual life?  That I don't answer enough posts because ummm, I'm busy having no life.  Nice try...

What flip flopping?  At least for me that is purely in your imagination.  Why don't you see sending kids to Catholic and teaching in public as flip flopping?  

Didn't you apply for Catholic school for one of your children at one point, gut you decided to go back to public school?

And it's amounted to what?  The same night time shifts no one else wants.  The alone shift.  Hooray, time to buy another unusable dusty old sewing machine to not sew garments for her many friends and family.  Really valuable credits.  Not.</p>

whoa... that was.. um.. yeah... wow.

"Why are you so angry? "

I've been friends with Grapthar's a long time and 'angry' is the last word I'd use to describe her-- "bemused," "snarky," "sarcastic" sure. but not angry.   And I'm also friends with Jams on FB and I have no doubt she does create a loving home for her kids- they look terrific.  But what often happens here is that some posters assume that their loving home for their kids means other homes are lacking, not loving, not dedicated, whatever.. and honestly that's just horsehocky.   judging from the photos I see on FB of all our kids I'd say they're all pretty freaking awesome.

What Flip-flopping? And considering what? And why are you glad my younger son is in public school, if where a person is educated makes no difference?

Nobody has argued against the idea that some people find self-help groups, counseling, support groups, and the like useful.

I disagree.  I think that support from others can help one achieve tranquility, but they can't create or cause tranquility in someone else.

Some possess a natural gift of peace and tranquility while others seek it out.  These groups/communities most certainly are ways others can find it for themselves just by listening/exchanging stories and experiences.
