    I totally remember leaving my single lady place and being so sad. It was a month before we went to SF courthouse to get married so it was definitely a big thing. My only time living on my own but so grateful I was able to do it. Post divorce it was exactly what I needed.

    In other news: we closed in our house today!

    And have to move Monday.

    Did I mention I’m 7 months pregnant?

    Wait, you don’t consider abuse to be a dealbreaker??

    Okay maybe you meant that list (cheating, abuse) as the dealbreakers and this, not so much.

    Either way.

    Communication on expectations is key.

    I officially just changed out move date to the 28th. Of course this is all pending things actually closing, but it will give us more time to pack and hopefully a weekend with the empty new house to paint the baby and toddler’s rooms.

    If you’re in Chicago, I highly recommend the Box Dibs facebook group. Grabbed a bunch of really awesome boxes last night, and planning to give away all of ours this way too.

    Yes, furniture takes forever. I’m waiting to pull the trigger on a new twin mattress from costco for our daughter, and thats the quickest delivery i’ve seen (like 5-10 days). Since we have crazy kids, and radiostar is basically saying “NO SPENDING EVER AGAIN.. ha” i may go out to the Cort furniture warehouse and try to get a ‘kid’ couch for the family room

    @Copa. if you need a cleaning lady to do your final moveout clean, I have someone. I’m using her for our own place too. just can’t deal with it this pregnant and rushed.

    Our closing was supposed to be tomorrow but still dealing with the nightmare that are our sellers. Had to get a second appraisal. move is currently scheduled for the 23rd.. BUT that means we need that appraisal back today or tomorrow to close by friday or monday. ugh ugh ugh.

    also, my husband asked if i plan to just give everythign away because everytime he comes back, i’ve sold something on fb marketplace. We just have so much crap! and i thought we were pretty good about not buying a lot, but it adds up with kid(S)

    I had Stage 0 melanoma (meaning, large extraction and then monitoring every 3 months for a year or so, now back to 6 months). Each level up definitely includes MORE, but caught early (stage 2 is still considered early) and they can do a lot. Besides the removal process, they may test his lymph nodes. The stages indicate the spread and depth into the skin layer the cancer may be.

    Beyond that, it still IS a scary thing. Especially since, hey, this is your dad and skin cancer is one of those everything is fine until it’s really not. I’m very sorry your family is going through this and your friend really should offer more. Cut back your interactions with her.. reach out to the melanoma groups…spend time with your dad/other family

    I went to pick up a twin bed off Facebook market place this week and ended up chatting with the seller. She works for the state’s COVID response team and she was like “this saliva test IS A GAME CHANGER”.. cheaper, faster, repeatable. Will allow for rapid response as well as potentially reduce the quarantining time

    @the ladye.. I would concur with Fyodor. UofI just got approval for their saliva test which will be a game changer. Is it realistic for you two to have zero touching/intimacy for the next 3, 6, 9, 12 months? I think you’re being reasonable as is your boyfriend in his concern, but ultimately, you are the one with the condition. I would think that would give you final say in what risk level you’re comfortable with?
