I had NEVER had that happen before. I was told my story was wrong, James could not have come home when I said he did and not at the weight he did. Then I was told I was just trolling for money and to get attention. This woman did not know me nor all that I had been through. She had determined I was a faker and attacked me verbally in the room. After getting upset because I had given access to a photo album with pictures of my children from birth to age two, agreed to meet a local MOM in the group AND was willing to accept a friend request where one can videos and pictures of my children over the years I was STILL attacked anyways!
A couple of the MOMs I knew on FB before I was added to that group signed into the social group and saw what happened. They came to my defense but I had all ready left. Seriously, I was in tears! My life has been SO stressful at this point that the verbal attack I had endured that night sent me over the edge. James was even concerned asking me why I was sad! He is SUCH a sweet boy! I told him some ladies had been mean to mommy on the computer but I am much better now. He gave me a kiss. Made my heart melt! About another ten minutes later I had a couple of the MOMs I know along with an administrator to the group say they were sorry for what happened and asked me to come back. That the woman who attacked me had left the group. So I agreed to come back. What a CRAZY experience! So far the other women the group have been nice and supportive but I have to say it is a carzy group in there. Maybe this is what having multiples does to a woman? What does that say about ME? LOL

My ad on Craigslist was rather successful. The ad has been part of the reason I have held off on posting so the ad would not be "lost" on my board. I had several people apply. A few I was able to dismiss right away. Others I was interested in and scheduled for an interview. I had people as young as 18 apply and I don't think anyone was over 24. I had BIG doubts about the people being so young and handling three 4 year olds who are disabled but I was pleasantly surprised by some of the applicants! So far I am highly encouraged! I recently found out my mother is not coming out here. I was thinking she was going to watch my children for me my first week at work. So I thought I would have until October 22nd to make a decision on someone to watch the children. With my mother not coming I should have started the interviewing process LAST week. I am in a hurry and MUST hire someone RIGHT away so I can start work on Monday!
This is the last thing I have to say in this long post...lol. Right before I was going to publish this I get a call from the front desk of my hotel. I was told someone had dropped off a care package for me and I needed to come and get it since she did not have any way of storing it. The front desk lady said a woman and her two children came in and dropped off a bag of groceries. Tina, the front desk manager, said the woman was very nice and asked if she knew me. The lady said she did not but she had heard things over the internet and she wanted to drop this off for me. You have NO idea how many times in my life I have heard people say they would help me or do something for me and rarely does anyone follow through. I am sorry but that has been my experience. :( You have NO idea how nice it was for me to receive such a wonderful gift and a sweet card. I have been feeling down and lonely. It is tough moving to a new city by myself with the children in tow and I know NO one and have no family here. So whoever you are...Thank You!
The card says...
We hope this finds you in a time of need and can help to lighten your burdens! Know that you are though of and loved! Friendly Neighbors
