I have been keeping up but haven't been able to respond.
Chrissy- I don't know what to say about Jesi - I'm glad she is okay but I would have a difficult time with the magnitude of the lie.
Jennifer - sorry about you and dh. from how you have described him, I cannot imagine that he would not adore a little baby just to pieces. You can't know/plan for everything, but you can only know that however difficult one night or stretch of time is, that you will still love that little human beyond anything else so all is possible, even lack of sleep, disorganization, annoyance, mess, noise, etc.
Mandy - I wish your mother wouldn't say such thoughtless things. I might just start being more general and less "share-y" with someone who was so insensitive.
Bridget - I agree with PP who said to just let it roll right now with the Ohio thing. There's nothing to do but watch and when the time comes for a decision you can make it, but until then see if you can't just let the idea exist without weighing on you. Much easier said than done. Does he still want to get to Hawaii?
I know I am missing people, but I have to go get myself together for my first graphic design class tomorrow!
