My neighbor's daughter who is 20 got pregnant w/ a guy 15 years older w/ kids. Loser of a guy to begin w/. She isn't any better since she suffers from depression, impulsive, on meds, doesn't take care of herself, has a history of bad decisions (some jail time to start), excessively moody and w/ a mouth, the works. So she has the baby because she has seen some "horror" stories of children who were adopted. (???)I know of very good friends who would LOVE to adopt a baby and give the baby what it needs. So from what I know, she is living w/ her parents, still sees the loser of a guy, parents work, she works and this little baby has been in daycare since she was 6 weeks old, is there for 9 hours a day and the weekends the baby might be w/ her own mother but has one of us pick up some slack. The daughter goes to see her friends and they have loud music around this precious little girl. She is "stressed out" because the baby is crying (she hasn't figured out that maybe the baby needs to be held instead of sticking a pacifier in her mouth or a bottle while still being in her carrier.) She doesn't interact w/ the baby except for brief periods as if she would rather be doing something else. If you can't take care of a baby why do you keep the child? So many people want to have children and love them so and my neighbor's daughter is being selfish...she couldn't put the baby up for adoption but this child would be so much better off. What do you think???? It just bothers me to see this.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
