SIL wants our nephew to be in sports and to be "at least 5'9" tall". He's only 5 and he's a really small kid and he HATES getting dirty, playing outside, and doing anything where he thinks he could get hurt. He's also a little clumsy. I hate when people put pressure like that on kids. WTF, how is he going to be able to control how tall he gets FFS? And if he likes to read or sing or do art or whatever else besides sports, why is that bad? Just irritates me when people try to live vicariously through their kids.

I loathe playing with kids. I play with my nieces and nephews because they want me to, but I much prefer to do adult things with them--baking, crafts, gardening, etc with them than to play dolls, play hide and seek, or play yet another round of Hi Ho CherryO.

DGD (who borrowed from us for her divorce) had a job interview yesterday for the county. She got the call today....SHE GOT THE JOB! Good pay, medical insurance for her and our great grandson, and the chance for advancement. The kid deserves a break and it looks like she’s finally getting one. She texted me last night and said paying us off is her first priority. Hope she sticks with it.

In response to a confession. Same. Newborns look like angry hams. My mil got super pissed at dh and I for not flying across the country when my niece was born, but what's the point? Newborns eat, sleep, and poop. And my sil didn't want a bunch of people at her house, anyway. We're going to visit this summer, when she'll be about 6-7 months old. She's one giant giggly fat roll now and I can't wait to meet her.

I'm meeting my new nephew next week--he's only a few weeks old. I hate to say it, but I don't love newborns. They're sort of boring and ugly and just kind of lay there, eat and sleep. I never really thought babies in general were all that great. Hence why I never had any myself I guess.

I don't understand people who think having kids is the greatest thing a woman can do in life. I can't have kids. Does that make me less of a person then?? Yes, MIL, I'm talking about you. I'm glad SIL is so awesome because she popped out another kid. That doesn't mean she's somehow better than I am. Rant over.

I take 1 No-doz a day just to function. I'm so tired all the time I could die. I do smoke cigarettes. Doctors don't know what's wrong with me. I don't drink or do any drugs. Help! I'm 49.

My old boss (16-17 years ago) is now a romance/erotica (are they the same?) novelist. Like a successful one. Since she sold her business at that time, she's had about 50 books published and made the NYT best Sellers list. Pretty awesome for her. BTW, the business she owned, that I worked for, was completely unrelated to erotica or writing/books. It was a small office, so we worked pretty closely together, literally and figuratively. I have no idea how she got her foot in the door.

So, basically I wanted to write and went on a freelance writing sites such as Upwork, Flexjob,etc. I was noticing a lot of entries for erotica gigs. I did the research and read some other writers' works. I had to do entry level jobs at first, it really didn't pay much but the experience helped. I also joined writer groups so we could critique our work. I haven't self-published yet, I want way more experience before taking that big leap. At the moment, I am ghostwriting erotica works freelance and I hope I get enough confidence to go full-scale and put out a piece on amazon. It's tough but it's possible. You won't get much money at first, but little by little, the experience adds up and then the money starts to pick up.

My dad suddenly really got into genealogy and bought a subscription to Ancestry.com. He wants me to join too, but honestly I don't care that much. At least not enough to pay money to find out more about people I barely know.
