Grown stepdaughter was telling everyone she was a virgin at age 26 and said she intended to remain so. Her family thought she was sooooo wonderful for this (religious based) decision. So then one day i answer phone and it's her distinctive voice. She says "Do you want to go to bed with me?" in a foreign language. I said her name. Dead silence. Then she hung up. It was her all right. She certainly had the wrong number (she was dating a much older guy and still claiming virginity, guess she'd hit the wrong speed dial). I never said anything to her and she never mentioned it. Years later when she married she still said she hadn't had sex yet, but I'm pretty sure the whole virginity claim was a lie and always was. I don't care (lost mine in my teens) but I have a problem with the lie itself, considering how widespread it was. the purpose was clearly to create a false impression of herself, but - WHY?

I'm so sad for dd right now. We planned this awesome party for her. Spent too much money one supplies and gifts for the GUESTS and after 20 RSVP that they are defiantly coming only 2 people came. She still had fun but I wonder if it is showing the true nature of these 'friends'.

This morning when I walked in the kitchen the first thing I saw was a lady bug. I live up North where it's still cold, hope this is a good sign.

I grew up in a big family with only one brother. None of my sisters can hold a flame to him. Never have I met a guy so mean and for lack of a better word- bitchy. And people always think 'oh poor guy he had so many sisters growing up.' No he acts like that because my parents fed into his crybaby bullshit and always shoveled on the sympathy. Oh and by the way mom and dad, thanks for not so subtlety letting the rest of your kids know what a burden we were just for being all female.

Woke up my pre-teen daughter at midnight to tell her she had a once in a lifetime choice: if I really make her so unhappy (had a manipulative meltdown earlier that day), I'd leave, for good and forever; but if she chose for me to stay, she'd have to agree to work together in bettering things. Of course she said she wanted me to stay. My confession: I meant it.

So it has been 2 years since my hysterectomy. I have since accepted it and my husband and I are in the process of becoming foster parents. Trying to turn this around to be a great thing for us and for homeless children. I am nervous but excited.

Reading the book Labor Day by Joyce Maynard & I identify with the man character way to much. Should my husband leave me, I would be her. That's kind of a scary thought!

They are talking about lice on another board. I didn't realize it was such a big issue - constant checking and treatment. I never heard anything about lice at school when I was growing up and my grown kids never had them either. I don't think I know anyone who did.

Dh's family loves our son. They ask about him, play with him when we visit, and are overall nice grandparents to him. My family absolutely adores him. My inlaws are happy to see pictures occasionally while my family almost demands at least one picture daily. My family would gladly babysit him almost any time (within reason) simply for the chance to spend time with him while dh's parents would only agree to have us "owe" them something later, or to tell everyone else he spent the whole time begging them to adopt him. It breaks my heart that when dh gets out of the military we will be living in the same state as his family and so very far from mine... We've talked about moving to my state but dh has said there are certain things about it he really doesn't like, and I think in the long run he will grow to hate living there. The only thing about his state that I'd really change is the fact that my family isn't there...
