Where has time gone!? Happy to be back ...

I honestly cannot remember the last time that I was on PS, but I do still see many faces that I remember. A lot has happened in the past few months that has led me to be a much better, and much happier Miss Sparkly. My marriage had been terrible for the past few years but I could not quite get to th...

Re: Coke caps can get you something good!

Hello! It's been a LONG time since I've posted. No longer have the bracelet. Ended up returning it which was a good thing since I divorced hubby. Bit of a long story so I think I'll throw that in the general discussion pages. BUT I would love to see other people's Pandora's!

Re: iPhone 4S questions for photographers

All of that is is possible HOWEVER it does require downloading apps that support those functions. The shutter speed is what has the most limited control, and any kind of zoom is digital zoom. I would highly suggest looking into avalible apps to see if those offer what it is you hope to gain from the...

Re: Quick computer question

I would go to office depot and speak with them. All routers will support your networks. If you're going to frequently share the connection with another person, watch movies, play online games or stream music then I would get what I'd called a dual band router. This type of router can send and receiv...

Re: Growing up

The only thing I can say is that you never stop growing up. I'm 25 and have been married (6.5 yrs), recently divorced, owned a house, sold a house, climed the career ladder and have felt like I would never make it to the next day. That it is too scary or too hard. But, I always made it. Almost alway...

Beautiful love song!

I haven't posted in quite a while, but wanted to come and share this with you guys. It was written by my hair gal and her 16yr old brother's girlfriend is singing it. Moves me every time ::)

Becoming a step parent

Quite a bit has happened that I haven't posted about. In short - divorce, out of state move, boyfriend and potential 11yr old step son. Bf and I are very open about everything and I have finally hit a good point in my life. His son is very living and accepting (he has full custody btw). I would like...

Re: KIA and Hyulndai POLL

I voted for #4 (I have not and would not buy one). I've known people who have owned Kias and Hyundais and have liked them, but I'm a Toyota girl. I could be wrong, but I just don't think Kias and Hyundais are among the highest-rated in terms of longevity and safety. I think Hyundai has a better rep...

Re: Has anyone told you that you're going to get divorce?

That is very rude and tactless. Strangers no, my inlaws yes. They were right, my marriage is going to fail. DH and I have nothing in common and are polar opposites on everything. It is just too difficult for both of us to live with. Sorry that you had to deal with that :(

Re: Cost of birth in the US

What happens if you are someone who has no insurance and things all go wrong? Do people end up in debt for the rest of their lives and losing their houses over it? Is there free care available if you don't have insurance? It scares me to think about this. My coworkers niece ended up in the ER two y...

After having a smartphone I don't know what I would do without it!

Re: Would you take a free house...

I like to say that I grew up without a home. My father was in the Navy and to live in one house longer than two years was a big accomplishment. Lucky for me my father was also so high up the food chain that he wasn't deployed or out on ship after I was 2. He used that money to do wonderful things wi...

Kindle Fire!

Just bought DH the Kindle touch for his birthday and I have to say it's pretty neat! I've been playing with it and putting some books on it before I give it to him on Saturday. Which brings me to the Fire. It is within the budget (see Tiffany thread....) and seems neat. I could play my favorite andr...

Re: Tiffany Dilemma

Be patient and pick up the necklace used. This thread is very timely for me. We have been debating getting a puppy in the next two years or another rat (my last one died right at the 2 year mark, as expected). I always forget how expensive dogs can be. This definitely helps me make up my mind. Oh, ...

Re: Tiffany Dilemma

I don't think she is saying they won't do the vet things. She is deciding whether to get the necklace or the watch, I think? My opinion is that if you even have in your mind "if I ever need to sell it", you probably don't need to be buying it. Do you have emergency funds saved up for car ...
