  • @kelsey_ruth326  I agree. Have a great first day! :)
  • @singing_koala hello and welcome 👋 well I definitely feel left out of the teachers club here haha 😆 I am not a teacher. That’s cool that your both teachers. Sounds like you have a busy house with 4 pets lol. that’s cool. I only have 1 cat and 1 dog. I’d love more cats though lol. I also struggle with patience like you haha 😆 Feel free to join in on the other daily threads.

  • @mindyb2019 I’m glad I’m not alone in my lack of patience!! Yes, our 4 pets are very busy & they are the reason we also have a robot vacuum! Thanks for the welcome. :)

  • @singing_koala man I only have 2 pets and I need to get a robot vacuum lol 😆 
    BusinessWife
  • My husband refuses to get a robot vacuum.  He must just want to complain about the dog hair!  :D. I was a music teacher for two years, too! ...before life brought a career change. 🤷 Now I'm just counting down the days / weeks / months???? Till I can SAH. 🤞🤞

    Welcome @singing_koala thanks for jumping right in there!!!

    @kikigreat0 welcome!! Dh and I got married at a courthouse and it was so nice because we didn't have all the hustle and bustle of a big wedding and could really just focus on us. But big weddings are fun too though!! I'm sure whatever you choose to do will be lovely :)

    @NamelessAria I wouldn’t call yourself new...you’re just coming back! :)
    It's funny how it's the little things in life that mean the most...not where you live, or what you drive, or the price tag on your clothes... There's no dollar sign on a piece of mind, this I've come to know! *ZBB*
