You know what I HATE? When women imply that I didn't really want to stay home and be with my kids and that is why I work, "If you really wanted to you would find a way..." Well, if that way entails my DH working tons of OT and a second job and missing out all his time with his own children, then that is not a way.

It's weird but two of my former boyfriends have died already. I'm not old, either.

There is nothign wrong with anyone wearing what they are comfortable in at the beach. However FOR ME it would be very uncomfortable to wear a bikini and have my rolls spilling out for all to see. No no no...also I dont' want to worry about slippage or wedgies. A comfy pair of swim shorts and a long tank top suit me just fine.

I have never gone to a destination wedding. I simply wouldn't want to spend my precious vacation time on that.

DD 11 has been learning about the holocaust. Someone must have been burning leaves or something because ash was falling while we were chilling outside. She looks up at the sky and says, reminds me of when they burned the bodies. I must admit, because of the lack of context I was a bit worried for my daughter's mental state.

Since when is raising my children not a viable option? I think I have four kids who love being home with their mom who would disagree.

My mom came over last night. It's been a couple of months since I've seen her. She got us chinese food, and I got her a cake since it was her bday on 4/4. It was a nice visit. She wanted to know if I wanted to spend the day with her in San Francisco in May. She wants to take the ferry and scatter my Grandma's ashes on the Bay while we're on the ferry. That makes me so sad for my mom. She's had my Grandma's ashes for almost a year. I'm going to go, but wish my sis would go with us too. They had a falling out a couple months ago, and my sis kicked her out. =( I've tried to get them to both make up, but I guess neither of them is ready......

I just read something on FB about how we need to teach out daughters this and that about men. Basically, the message was we need to teach them to be able to read a man and try to ferret out his intentions based on his actions, words etc. Good advice, but I think more importantly, we need to teach girls and learn ourselves, to spend more time getting to know ourselves, what we want out of life, education, career, etc. A relationship with a man and making children is no longer a viable career option (maybe it never should have been) We need to focus more on our own needs and wants (not in a selfish me me me manner) but in a way that we value ourselves the way we should. We do need to put ourselves first more often in our relationships, careers and with family.

My mother is being investigated for Ovarian Cancer. Based on what she has told me and what I have read on the internet (I know, bad place for medical advice) I think I'm about to get some very bad news. I feel like I have to prepare myself for the worst case scenario, yet at the same time, I am a big believer in don't worry until you have something to worry about. I scare myself because I am actually not worried, but curious to hear what she has.
