A lot of people will probably hate me for this, but here goes. I don't like my family, and I don't love them. I wasn't abused. My family is dysfunctional but probably no more than a lot of other people. They've hurt me, but probably not more than your average family. I just don't think they are particularly good people, and I don't want to be around them anymore. Unfortunately, for now I'm forced to. But when I'm gone, I'm gone. I just really don't subscribe to blood being thicker than water. I wouldn't like them if I wasn't related to them, and I just don't feel any different about it because I am.

Opinions please. My daughter, 15 wants to participate in mountain biking this next year in High school. She has been to 1 practice so far and she enjoyed it. She wants us to put out the $1000.00 for a good mountain bike to use for school. The school does offer a loaner bike for free but she can't bring it home, she can only use it for practices and races. Do you think I am being unreasonable to make her use the loaner bike her first season?

When I was a child, my parents got a dog to appease my older sister. They seemed to think keeping the puppy tied up in a dark garage alone all day was fine. I am haunted. I feel like I don't deserve to ever have a dog in this lifetime again.

My daughters team took 2nd place in their division at the FIRST Robotics World Championship! So very proud of our teams.

I hear the "fast food is cheaper" argument all the time. I work in a weight loss clinic. I tell my clients to stop at grocery stores that have salad bars, or to pack lunches. They still can't seem to give up those drive throughs. They must put crack in those fountain sodas.

So the thing on FB now is to lament how much more expensive "healthier" fast foods are compared to the unhealthier ones. For example, a salad and water costs more than fries and soda. Here's a thought, how about avoiding those places altogether?

I am working now for a nice company, nice office with mostly female employees. I am older than most of them. I think they mostly range from 24-37 with only a few women in their 40's and 50's like myself. They all tend to chatter about 2 or 3 topics at the most (the younger ones). It ranges from weddings and babies to complaining about looking older. As nice as they are, I tend to avoid having lunch with them. I find the weddings and baby talk really tedious and wow, complaining about your porcelain smooth skin 'looking older' in front of me is kind of rude!

Every time an abused woman stays silent about what happened to her, it's acceptance of abuse. I understand why people can't speak up about this. If it will cause you to be in danger, you have to be quiet. But when you are no longer in danger, say it loud and say it proud. I WAS A VICTIM AND THAT IS THE GUY WHO DID IT TO ME. If society shunned abusers, there would be fewer of them. There is no shame in being a victim.

Spending time with my parents really stresses me out. But I love them very much. Cutting them out, NOT an option. AAaaackkk!

Was the 80's possibly the worst fashion decade ever? Looking back I can't find a time where people ever looked so horribly ugly!
