    Jana and her "boyfriend" broke up just a little while ago. I'm taking her out to console her and as a celebration for her---even if she doesn't know it.

    LOL. Swing by and pick me up. I could go for a margarita. I so know what you mean about that silent "YES!' feeling inside when you hear something like that while outwardly you are going...oh Im so sorry...blah blah blah.

    Oh...I'm so "sorry." I understand...had the same feeling when Miss KT and J broke up. It's so difficult to do a silent happy dance...

    When easy child 2/difficult child 2 & her first boyfriend broke up (messily) I took her shopping for clothes. Her ex-boyfriend had blogged publicly about how she had the maturity of a 12 year old and the boobs to match, so we specialised in frilly, pretty blouses that showed off her cleavage. As a result, when he came crawling back after a few days, she had her self-esteem indepndently bolstered and was able to tell him, "No, I think you made the right decision in breaking up with me. YOu showed maturity and wisdom, we need to follow through and stick to your decision, take some time apart from one another for a few weeks."

    Celebration is always good. Just avoid saying anything bad about him; even avoid agreeing with her because if by chance they get back together, she will tell him HER version of what you said. We went through that with sis-in-law - and now her husband avoids spending time with us.

    Somehow, when you're a kid, you seem to bounce right on to the next one. Be prepared. ;) I'm sure she's glad to have you as a support.

    Woot woot! meep meep!!!

    I hope it lasts and she is typical in terms of most young people, bounces back, and over time bounces back to dating scene and finds one of the good guys!

    YES! :D

    I hope it sticks and she finds a nice guy who appreciates her.

    And let's hope while we're at it that it rubs off on both K and Nichole. lol

    This Auntie went and got ahot pink haired, boy, troll doll......and turned it away from the beautiful princess doll. Then we gave it to the dog and told him to HIDE the troll.

    Somewhere on 2 acres of sandy bliss - there is a troll with dog slobber in the sand NEVER to return. I had to floss the dogs teeth last night - to get the little pink hair out of his mouth but other than that I also hope there are NO remnants of said TROLL.

    AMEN -
    and pass the margaritas

    LOL---Thanks Star for the hoodoo---hopefully he stays far, far away. And thanks to the rest of you for understanding. He wasn't a bad man---just not to one for her. He was too old---well, not really too old as much as he is not where he should be in life for his age. If she brought home a 29 year old with a good income and his life on track, I would not complain. In fact, tonight she is having dinner with her former recruiter---lol. They've kept in touch since they met when he was her recruiter---actually she works at the place he paid his insurance premium so they knew each other since before then.

    Star is that your version of voodoo?

    I hope she meets a nice guy, now.

    Just an update - the dog dug up the troll .......he's pretty bad shape. So we had to take the hairless, tooth riddled, missing an eye...doll and toss him in the herbie curby with the cat tootsies.

    I am glad she is not terribly inconsolable. Going out with the recruiter is a great sign. I hope and pray that she is "over" him and the pain is that of losing the idea of being in love rather than losing being in love with him. Know what I mean???

    Here is to hoping that they go their separate ways with-o any back and forth.

    Just be careful to be non-committal when she gripes about him. It is hard, but you must stay neutral. Otherwise it could push her closer to him.

    Gosh Star, where did you get his picture?

    Okay---true story---they are still not together, once Jana leave you, she's done---except for....the one guy she still loves and will not date because of his difficult child issues.
    Jana and I go to the hospital today---she only works 1/2 days on Wed. and I finished early---She had to make sure her surgical records were sent to the VA. She had gotten a letter stating the hospital required payment first. So, we went. And who do we run into....
    The one...
    You oldtimers will remember boyfriend, exbf, boyfriend, exbg---this is the one that injured his leg the same time she had knee surgery last fall.
    She had left her license in her car...required before the would release the records...had gone back to get it, and had turned a whiter shade of pale.
    He was on his was to the emergency room...
    What are the odds?
    And then....the woman told us she had already sent the paperwork and gave us the person's name and confirmation #.
