Multi-part/long story- If I had a falling out with my childhood friend over ten years ago and haven't spoken to her, for very good reasons, why do I feel guilty for not donating to a Go Fund Me for her? This is a family friend that I grew up with. We spent all our holidays together. However, her mother was not a great friend to my mother, it was always a one-way street, and after repeatedly bailing her out financially my mom eventually cut her off, because she was so rude, ungrateful, and unsupportive in every way. When my childhood friend showed up at my mother's funeral and hugged me it felt so wrong. When she called to offer her condolences, I told her that if she wanted to be a good friend for once, she could tell her mom that she was a shitty friend to my mom, and I hung up on her. I haven't spoken to her since

In response to a confession. I have learned that: 1) My kids don't need all the extra curriculars that we used to do, and we're all much happier with less to do. 2) Most people are disgusting and fairly uneducated. 3) The rat race that is the Corporate world is a sham and we all could have been working from home since basically the invention of the internet.

In response to a confession. I wrote this response. My H just lives for the day, not thinking about the long run and then panics when he barely has enough for his share of the bills. We both travel for work and he lives it up with eating out. He can't understand why I meal prep and take as much as I can with me. He buys whatever he wants and I sacrifice. That's why I have savings and he doesn't. (I separated our finances long ago.)

In response to a confession. Was he depressed? Because of COVID I lost a job I'd just been offered and took a crap job until things got figured out. It was only part time and I had a LOT of free time. I was so depressed that I literally didn't do any of the projects I had in my head, and was pissed off at myself when I got a full-time job 7 months later. I could have and should have gotten so much done.

In response to a confession. I learned that even though I'm a big hand-washer and have ALWAYS carried/used hand sanitizer, apparently I wasn't good enough at it. Last year was the first year that I didn't get sick at all.

What have you learned or are you learning about yourself from this pandemic year? Here are my 3 main things -- #1- learning how to slow it way down, #2 - always put my health first since it can be gone in a heartbeat, and #3 - how to be sit with myself and not runaway from my problems by distracting myself. I'm curious to hear from you. What were your learnings?

I swear to Christ. My DH has been essentially off work since October. As in, ZERO work to do. Yet he has accomplished all of jack shit around our house that was supposed to be done--getting the roof fixed, fixing my car's sensors, filing our taxes, etc. I am so unbelievably pissed off at him. And now he finally DOES have an assignment coming up in May and he's freaking out that he didn't get all his projects done. Well maybe if you didn't sleep 18 hours a day you would have had time, dumbass.

I took my 11 year old pup in for her wellness check and the vet was concerned about her weight loss and said her lymph nodes were swollen. Turns out it's lymphoma and we're doing palliative care for her. She's going to be on prednisone to help with her inflammation and her appetite and we may have another few months with her. I'm like, a mess right now. I took the day off work and I'm just a blubbering MESS. I knew she was getting older but I didn't realize how much this sucks.

I don't ask people personal questions, like ever. I figure if you want me to know, you'll tell me. If you come in with a cast on your arm, I'm not going to ask you what happened. If you tell me your spouse passed away (something I would need to know at my job) I'm not going to ask you what happened. (I will, however, say I'm sorry to hear that or sorry for your loss). I am just not that kind of person that's going to ask questions of get involved in the least. Even with friends, I don't do it. If you want me to know, you have to tell me. If you start the conversation with me, I will ask appropriate questions and I do actually care and I am a good listener. I just don't pry. Ever. So now I do have a question: Does this make me some sort of anti-social freak? Am I an ass hole here for this?

In response to a confession. Off topic but why the fuck are men like this? Mine does the samee thing every year. Spends as much as he can and then bitches because we "suddenly" owe $20/30k in taxes. Like, it happens every year, dude! It's not going to stop just because you ignore it. Men are so fucking stupid.
