Good for you. Nice job.
It’s unreal how much it dampens everything.
I look at my mortgage free home as *part* of my retirement plan.
Delete FB and post on Instagram about it.
Like sweet relish, sweet pickles are an abomination. I’m not big on organized religion, but I can see a case for the Spanish Inquisition when it comes to sweet pickles
Damn you, your edit destroyed my dirty joke. :(
Seriously. I think this is one scenario where it’s better to be an annoying parent and ask over not. I mean, what happens if your kid is getting bullied at school and you never ask about their day? Sure, they might tell you anyway, but actually showing that you have a reoccurring interest in their day and what happens…
Yeah I seriously don’t understand why you wouldn’t want to find out what your kid is going through in school, particularly nowadays.
I agree, and don’t really get the point here. Of course your kids are going to grunt at you and not want to talk. Tough shit for them. lol
It’s quite possible she wondering when you are going to actually say something like, “I found an apartment today!”
Yeah, this article is really cynical and is even more condescending to kids by assuming they don’t want to talk to anyone. My daughter is 12, so she’s not always pleasant to be around and doesn’t always want to talk. I usually ask her, “Anything different happen at school today?” This lets her know that I realize most…
Not for nothing, but how often do you engage her and start a conversation about her day and interests?
Rob - I’m largely on the same page as you. Born in 1976, and Luke Skywalker is my hero.
Isn’t Kylo the one who told her about her parents?
Someone else posted this one, which allows you to enter your state, your deductions and most importantly kids.
There are certain people who can tell you something you’ve heard a million times but frame it in such a way that it will blow your brain out your butt. I have a friend like that and whenever another friend is having problems I tell her to get in touch with them. Thank heavens for people like them.
You’re not bewildered, you’re pretending not to get it to protect someone on your political side. Be less obvious about it next time.
I am really tired of the “he wasn’t ACTUALLY touching her in the photo” defense.
Wait, I think I get it. Calling yourself trash is how men deal with the fact that they actually like patriarchy and misogyny because it benefits them. So they show shame and that covers up for the fact that they still want dominance. If you say “I’m trash” and do a little performative feminism, you can avoid changing…
