I have a family and I'm childfree. If it makes me sad to want to "forgo a family" so one more human doesn't have to deal with this shitty planet, oh effing well! :)

DH meets almost none of my needs. We chat a lot and that's about it. Otherwise, no sex, no real consideration, no romance. Just a nice person to hang out with once I've done everything that needs to be done in the house and put the kid to bed. I still love him and he's never mean to me. I have no desire to leave him. That's the part I find weird. I'm occasionally resentful, but most of the time the best part of my day is seeing him and I love our conversations. I'm pretty happy.

I got into all sorts of trouble when I was a teenager, but there were never any sort of consequences. I was promiscuous at a very early age, had a computer in my room that I did bad things with, I didn't care about my grades at all, got drunk almost every weekend, met with men who were 21+ years old, the list goes on. Both of my parents owned their own businesses, and were more focused on that and their adult life than me and my brother. I did some pretty crazy things (some of which they actually found out about), but never got punished. My parents pride themselves on how they raised us, but I feel a lot of resentment towards them for not bothering to actually PARENT us. They think that because I turned out ok eventually, that they must have done a good job. Whatever. I think my brother and I would have made fewer bad decisions if we thought our parents actually cared.

I asked DD15 if she caught any more flack over her 'mean' text message (that got shared with everyone), and this is what she told me: "No, I just acted like it never even happened. If you just go on living your life like normal, then the people they spread rumors to won't believe them anyway. And then everybody forgets all about it!" ... She's a good egg.

My daughter's robotics team is at this years world meet, and she's having a blast. I still miss her so much. She was telling me that yesterday she was speaking with a team from Mexico, in Spanish since their English wasn't the best. I cannot state enough how much I love this program. And how proud of her I am. She's been like a mentor for the freshman on the team, she helped them on their first plane ride, she even bought her brothers souvenirs while she's away.

My Mom and Stepmom work in different departments in a huge company. I guess my SM told M that my son watched TV at their house this weekend when we visited. (THE HORROR) and my step brother's kids never do when they visit. My mom was classy about it and laughed it off, but told me she was so irritated. I told my mom not to worry-I wasn't in competition, people will judge you no matter what. My kids are in sports, do well in school, etc. If they don't want to spend the entire day outside Oh Well!

My DH has been on a business trip for four days and I have not heard a peep. It's unusual for him. NO text, no call, no email. I don't know whether to be worried or furious.

I think it's incredibly sad that a husband would rather forgo having a family than see his wife gain some pregnancy weight. Does he plan to keep all his hair? Maintain his youthful six pack for the rest of his life? Very shallow. And I think anyone who accepts that as a reason for not having kids is also shallow.

Went to the post office the other day, our post office is small and a bit cluttered so I parked the stroller out the front and had the kids walk in with me. They were so well behaved, we picked up our parcel, got a stamp and left. I loaded the kids back into the stroller and headed off when I realized I hadn't actually paid for said stamp so I turned around and headed back. Not wanting to bother with unloading the kids again this time I went in with them in the stroller, parked it beside the counter, paid my 50c and left again. We went down the street and into the shop on the corner, just as we walked through the door I noticed that my 2 year old in the front of the stroller had some mentos in her hand that she must have grabbed from the post office. Not wanting to go back but not wanting to condone stealing either I had her put them with the mentos on the shelf in the store, told her not to take things without paying, grabbed what we needed, payed and left.
