Here's a GOOD NEWS update- my FH and I went to look at a couple more houses last night and we put an offer on one. It's a small house but it will suit us just fine. It's in a small town a few miles from where we are currently located but there was no houses in our price range here so we had to venture out.

WWe closed on the house yesterday afternoon and got the keys so we went shopping afterwards and got stuff we needed so we're moving in today. This AM I'm going to be dropped off so I can clean the floors and polish them plus put some stuff away while FH comes back to get a couple of other friends and to wait for the moving container company to show up to deliver the moving container to the new house. I didn't want to leave it yesterday when we went to do the final walk through. I do can't wait to share a video or pics with all of you.

If he let her talk him into letting you go, then he ain't worth squat. He may regret his decision at some point and resent her for meddling in his life, but right now - he said goodbye and it is his loss.

I too grew up without all the nice things that my friends had. But I had a wonderful childhood full of homemade love. Blanket forts, bike riding,rollerskating and painting pictures in the basement on hot summer days... things that my friends thought were so weird and wonderful whenever they came to visit. And so many good memories that hold me strong during tough times as an adult.

You will meet someone who can truly appreciate the wonderful person that you are. Until then, take care of you and remember that it reflects badly on him and not you. You are hurting now, and eventually that hurt will die away and become less. I still hurt when I think of my first love, who left me for someone else almost 30 years ago - and that little bit of hurt will always be there, but it makes me appreciate the man I married and love so much more and completely than my 1st love ever could have.

Well, here's another update for you all. Besides planning our wedding, my boyfriend and I are also looking to purchase our first home. So far we can't agree on anything that either of us see or want to check out. I am feeling to just go with whatever he wants and to stop helping with trying to find us home, Did anyone else have this issue? If so, how did you resolve the it?
Make a list of what you both want.

when DH and I were looking, we wanted main floor bedroom and main floor laundry, huntable land, fences, established fruit tree(s), etc. Our list was more about the land than the house!

Sometimes when I have on "nice" clothes, even I want a non hairy place to sit. That isn't a problem any more, only have LGD's. They get to come in for a nap sometimes, but do not get on the furniture.
I match my clothes to my pet's color. I had gray dog and 2 gray cats - gray pants. Now my black dog sheds more than anyone, so I have black pants. :lol:

That's a great solution. Affordable and fun. 😊.
Plus the wedding favors will be cute but cheap. I'm going to take a circle of wood attach a homemade candle to it then burn our names and date into. I might even spice the wood up by adding a small piece of ribbon and a flower or two. To really cut down on expenses (cost) I'm going to make my own bouquets (1 to keep and a smaller one to throw). And for the cake have a couple rounds (1 to keep for our first year anniversary and 1 to cut) and the rest will be cupcakes with decorated in the colors of the theme.
