Have any of you had to have your appendix taken out? I'm 48 and had it taken out 2 weeks ago. Went back to work today, worked half a day, and had to come home. I'm just exhausted and sore on my right side and back. The doctor's went in laparoscopically but had to cut me open because of some issues. I emailed my doctor to ask for more time off. It's a new job too. Ugh. Just wondering how long it takes to feel normal again.

My father left us when I was 2. He has recently come back into our lives because he's ill and feels he needs to reconnect with us. All it has done is cause drama and turmoil. He can't understand our anger, and honestly the 'mixed up' feelings aren't addressed either. He wants us to act as if he was part of our lives all along and we are one big happy family. He wants weekly family dinners and nightly talks. We spent 30 years without him. It's not a light switch you can turn off and on. I really just want him to go away again, and it makes me feel like such a horrible person for even thinking it.

My family has a tradition of getting the kids gifts and then the adults play a gift game, to save on money. The problem is that two of the "kids," my oldest niece and nephew, are 19 and 27. They never get me jack, but I'm still expected to get them a gift, while they still play the gift game. My youngest niece and nephew are 11 and 16, and this year will be playing the gift game along with the adults, because they felt left out. Long story short, the oldest two will only get a gift from me in the form of the gift game, and the youngest two will get $10 in a card, as well as their gift game gift. If you're over 18, and you don't get me anything, I'm not getting you anything. Bah humbug.

The humblebragging on social media is probably what annoys me even more than outright bragging.

The only thing that bugs me on social media is this old co-worker of mine who started selling that crappy younique makeup. She takes selfies every damn day, wearing caked on makeup, where she is full on grimacing. It's like she forgot how to smile like a human. She bares her teeth, opens her eyes as wide as she can, and snaps a pic. It's just... really something.

Mini rant here: My sister's kids love these stupid LOL suprprise dolls. I'm sorry, but what a piece of crap toy. It's a plastic ball with individually plastic wrapped plastic dolls with plastic clothes that you put on them. That's it. No way am I spending $20 on 50 cents' worth of plastic that was made in some sweatshop in Bangladesh or wherever the heck they make them. Toys just piss me off in general for reasons like this.

In response to a confession. I get annoyed at social media boasting too. I don't post much on there and I can't stand my friends who post all the time about the vacation they're going on, the new car they got, the expensive food they buy, etc. It's just mentally exhausting to me. I have unfollowed some of my friends who post nothing really inspirational and it's all their selfies and captions talking about how great they are.

There are so many moms around here selling stuff like Mary Kay, other makeup lines, leggings and supplements. I'm so sick of thinking I made a new mom friend only to find out they want to invite me to some "party" to sell their stuff or to try and rope me into selling under them. Jesus. I mean I'm seriously ready to go off on the next fake friendly gesture.

You have to factor in housing, utilities, healthcare, and food per child....that's what child support it for.
