I love my home. It's my sanctuary. Two weeks away would give me serious anxiety.

I had surgery a week ago and DH has been 100% caregiver. DSD, who's sainted mother died three years ago has called or texted, asking how I am or if he needs help. She helps her MIL and SIL out all the time. It breaks my heart and pisses me off at the same time. But wait! There's more! BFF (I'm gonna be re-thinking that title) and I discussed two months ago the three friends that we made meals for, did chores for, and went to visit after their surgeries. Every one of those friends have called or come by. From her.....crickets. I think I'm done with her.

In response to a confession. Same here, OP. The longest I've ever been away from home is about a week. I don't have the money for a 2 week vacation nor the time off of work. I think that's pretty common.

In response to a confession. I really haven't. It's weird to me that you find that so unbelievable. I like my home, we don't have a bunch of money to travel with. Why would I want to leave for so long? Then again, I do live in a place where most people just come to vacation. I'm excited to see new places but it's going to be really strange to be away from home so long.

No one was being mean about your marriage confession. I think people genuinely wanted to understand. Instead of being angry think of it as caring enough to want to read your confession and offer help.

In response to a confession. You’ve never been away from home for 2 weeks before? That’s unbelievable to me. Wow.

I'm going on a two week trip with DH. I've never been away from home (or work) this long before, and I'm really nervous about it. DD19 is going to be home alone the whole time. Our next door neighbor is a police officer, and he's going to help keep an eye on her and the house. Plus DS23 lives nearby if she needs anything. Plus, her boyfriend is around. I know she'll be fine. My problem is I feel like I miss her already, and DS23, and DGD, and my dogs, and my house.... ...

In response to a confession. I once worked in a daycare in an upscale town.There was a girl whose mom would dress her in layers (that were too small and stained!) in the summer. Even long sleeves. Her shoes were too small as well. But the mom was always dressed to the nines and appropriate for the weather. There was the well-off WAHM who never sent enough formula for her 3mo old no matter how many times we asked, so we always had to call her to come bring more or get the baby, which pissed her off. The coup de grace were the parents who lived in a huge house and each had a brand-new luxury car. They had the cutest chunkin punkin little boy. He had a huge growth spurt, and should have been wearing Size 3 or maybe 4 diapers. But since they'd recently brought in a huge pack of 2s, they said to just use them up. Bottom line, some parents care more about themselves than their kids.

In response to a confession. If the preschool hasn't called CPS yet about that child they don't know wtf they're doing. That child is being neglected.

Thanks for your feedback. I'll be sure to think of it the next time I'm really upset, accidentally post on the wrong channel, and can't fit all of my marriage problems into one confession. Sorry it was hard to follow. /s
