Watching the Chicken Little movie with my kid, and it's irrationally pissing me off. What kind of parent doesn't at least try to side with their kid first? What kind of parent needs their kid to win a game before they believe in them? SMDH. Also, LuLu from Word Party pisses me off too. "I'm sorry I ate your cookies." Like, NO dude, you're not sorry! You just ate four cookies!! Yes, I think I probably need a break from kids television. lol.

In response to a confession. It isn't really spicing up your marriage but what helped tremendously for me and my husband was The Love Languages book. It helped both of us see the person in a different light and what they needed but also made us more aware of what we ourselves needed. Sometimes really getting to know yourself and your spouse creates a entirely new relationship between the two. I learned a lot about myself in that book which helped me articulate what I needed better. We also did the Briggs Meyer personality test. I read up about both personalities to figure out how we could be in a cohesive relationship. I even used the book and test to understand my son and guide my parenting with him. Since doing both, DS's personality and school work has flourished because I worked with who he was, not what I wanted. While reading both the book and the test results, things made so much sense on why we did the things we did. It really is eye opening to learn about not just other people but yourself as well.

In response to a confession. Taking a class together is a great way to develop new interests within the marriage, but you have to have a spouse who is willing. My ex would not take a class with me, he preferred his many hobbies and hanging out with guys, not me. Sometimes it just gets impossible. Also a guy who is talking about spicing up the marriage might have something else in mind, like threesomes or an affair. That happens. Counseling to get to what he is really trying to say may be in order.

DH has this friend that annoys the crap out of me. Whenever he and DH talk on the phone, they both SCREAM into the phones. And the only things they seem to say are "Fuckin' yeah!" and "No fuckin' way!" over and over again. They get talking and then DH's friend's wife inevitably tells them to knock it off and I tell DH to knock it off, too. I want to just tell them both to go outside and yell at each other out there. I swear, it's the most obnoxious thing in the universe.

In response to a confession. DH and I did a class together--we painted pottery and learned how to fire it and stuff. That was fun, because we got to hang out together without having sex. Maybe something like that? Something you could do together--that you could plan ahead of time--and wouldn't take too long.

How can I spice up my marriage some? We've been married 8 years, 2 small kids. My dh has been making comments how our priorities are different and we really are getting older and we don't have as much fun or sex as we used to. Trying to get him to do anything spontaneous is like trying to move a marble pillar with a piece of straw. Also, I actually do feel old and tired. How can I develop a new level for us? I don't want to really go back, but need to do something new.

I also have people who never talk to me all of a sudden strike up conversations and at the end of the conversation bring up they want to visit me. People I haven't spoken to or seen in years all of a sudden want to be my bff and catch up. People are such asses that will use people to get a cheap vacation using my house and vehicle to cut down on their cost.

We are a military family that has been overseas and this summer will be our last summer here. No one has visited us the entire time we have been here except a friend of DH. I didn't expect any one to visit and honestly I would rather people didn't. Now that it is getting down to the end of our stay, everyone we know wants to come this summer. I don't want to spend my entire summer basically being a bed and breakfast for all our family. My husband has been gone so much and we really haven't been able to travel as much as we would have liked. I want to enjoy time with him and do our own adventures. People don't realize how expensive it is for us when they come to stay. The food and transportation is all on us. Gas is expensive here compared to the states. We have small vehicles so we would have to take two vehicles everywhere. Which means double gas and double for tolls. The addition of extra mouths to feed would double our grocery cost.

In response to a confession. I can never forget the dumbest thing I ever said: Friend: "I really want a Saint Bernard, such great dogs with nice coats!" Me: "That's ridiculous! Saint Bernards don't wear coats!" OMG........
