She also needs to stop texting naked pictures of her vagina to my MiL accidentally and stop sending her ex-husband her boyfriend’s dick picks to make us all jealous.  Ironically, these have arrived a times the kids were with US.  So, had our phones been out, they may have seen genitals - not just BOOBS but a raging Read more

My husband’s ex doesn’t even want us to share a bed when his teenage children are present because they will “get ideas”. This has been going on since we moved in together after we got engaged. For awhile, the then-7-year-old was still not sleeping in his own bed so I was sleeping on the couch but we both agreed that Read more

Republican and Democrat need to be capitalized all throughout. Political party names are capitalized.

I am curvy as hell and in NO WAY flat butted but I’m 5' tall and short-waisted so they are NOT attractive on me.  Also, very uncomfortable.  Mid-rise jeans often look “high” on me.  Low rise ALL THE WAY.

The thing is, JM is not Lizzo’s doctor. If she was asked about her thoughts on obesity and concerns for obese people, she could share that.

Picking on a single person under the guise of “health” is just justifying being a shitass.

It’s in Buckhead.  Buckhead is to Alanta what Arlington Heights is to Chicago. At least that was what my friend told me after moving there (she was from Naperville). Buckhead is where the good mall is and is exactly what you’d expect it to be.

If you have kids, the division of labor stuff will become much more evident. So, if you want them, talk about that. My husband couldn’t cook prior to me getting pregnant. I had no issues with this pre-pregnancy and kids but after a pregnancy where I was incapacitated and then PPD and then being a single-earner and Read more

I feel like the venn diagram of “people over 50 on here“ and “judge-y asshats” has only a sliver of overlap TBH. So, I wouldn’t expect it from anyone on here. I know there are awesome older people like one of my grandmothers (she’s 90), my late great-grandmother (who died at 100 and my daughter is named after her), Read more

All of this - except the older ladies thing - is true for me. The older ladies are the ones to say “I’m so sorry you have to work” even though I’ve always been the breadwinner, my work defines me in many ways, I and have made more than double (now more than 4 times since he’s PT) what my husband does for YEARS now. I Read more

Math is easy for me! But boundaries are hard since my family has none. After my daughter was born, my dad went into a drunken rage and we were no contact for a looong time. We’re currently not talking to my husband’s father since he doesn’t approve of my husband working PT and staying home PT with a toddler (he was Read more

I have a therapist who is encouraging me to set boundaries and stick to them with no fucks given but it’s very difficult to watch when those boundaries involve others who have been harmed vs. people who made it possible (my mom and aunts vs. my grandmother who knew and did nothing).

We had a dog with dementia that would actually forget what to do. He had been reliably potty-trained for years but just could not remember to pee when he was outside. He declined steadily and had to be PTS but he also had a whole host of other symptoms and medications are a short stop gap (they cause liver damage Read more

I’m more bothered about it on behalf of his victims (my immediate family and very close family). That and the risk of exposing him to my child.  And the fact that the church is the reason for sheltering him and preventing these crimes from being reported 30-40 years ago has me very angry and scared.

Yeah. That is true but with PTSD, it’s hard to explain how my brain actually works. Even if I make a checklist and follow it, it’s as if I have a radio going on in the background all the while if I’m having a bad day with just static. And at night, it means I can have dreams that trigger night terrors. The flashbacks Read more

We tried that at grandpa’s (grandma INSISTED he be invited even though his ex-wife whom he beat within an inch of her life multiple times didn’t want him there) but he wouldn’t leave.  He attended every family event.  We did throw him out of the family viewing because the funeral home has morals.  The church, though, Read more

Aww this is amazing!

I adopted a dog like this once (well, twice). Prozac during high stress times is an absolute godsend. I went from having a dog who peed when anyone looked at him and couldn’t go anywhere to having a world travelling companion. The other is more neurotic and will never travel anywhere suitably but Read more

My grandma is dying and has been for a LONG ass time. She’s not the greatest but she is a living human and she means a lot to people who mean a lot to me. She was scheduled to enter a skilled nursing facility on Monday. It was thought she’d die at home (she’s 68 lbs and she’s 4'10'’ and still shrinking because she Read more

I had two glasses of wine - Cotes de Provence Rose. I made a delicious curry for dinner which it went nicely with.

My child screamed until I spooned two bites of it into her mouth (her decision, she’s 3 and sometimes gets needy for attention) and then she chowed down. She stopped screaming and then went to sleep (thank Read more

When I was in Ottawa, I found that most of the faculty I worked with lived in Gatineau. That’s when I discovered the disparity between QC and ON on these benefits. I can see why people locate there vs. crossing the canal.

This.  We have two older kids (my bonus kids) and then our toddler.  Her childcare FT would cost more than the cost of our mortgage.  It’s why only I work FT and her dad is PT right now.  Two of them would be infeasible and he’d have to quit working completely.
