Today I was reminded how much enjoy doing crafts and my love for Dollar Tree. While watching movies, I wrapped bday gifts using Kraft paper, stickers, and hung gift tags on tiny clothespin around bakers twine. 7 gifts wrapped on $4 supplies with a plenty leftover. If only I had more to wrap!

In response to a confession. I don't answer the question. my gripe is the fact that people ask in the first place. like i said, i would never ask someone why they had kids or why they had X amount of kids because it's personal, rude, and none of my business. why can't people recognize that asking someone why they don't want kids is the same?

When people ask why u dont have kids kids, just say "There are a lot of reasons why people dont have children" Then change the subject. Shuts them down every time

We reapplied for a mortgage and were denied again. With an 800 credit score and 2 years of increasing income under self employment. I'm so fucking over this absolute shit. He won't buy a damn house that's already built, won't consider a mobile home. It's construction or nothing. Well I'm fucking done. I quit the job I loved for him. I work with him doing a job I fucking hate for him. He can't even buy a liveable home because he's stubborn as hell and has an inflated sense of how important he is in the grand scheme of life. He just assumes he'll be approved because he's "him". Well guess what, buttercup? Life fucking sucks and you're the bottom of the totem pole. I'm quitting. I'm going to go back to the job I loved if I can, get a Bachelor's and Master's in the field I want to be in, and I'm going to do what I love. Fuck this absolute shit. I didn't even get the 5 promised years of being at home with the kids because of this shit. Fuck you and your overinflated sense of self worth.

In response to a confession. I'm cf and I hate it when people question why too. i honestly don't understand the desire or appeal of having kids but I don't go around asking people why they have them. it's none of my business and vice versa.

In response to a confession. I get a flu shot every year. So do my kids. We get them at different locations each year (whichever's closest / most convenient). Both of my kids are fully vaccinated. I also got a tetanus and whooping cough booster a few years ago. All and all, probably a dozen doctors / medial professionals involved. Not one of them ever discussed any risks with me beyond, "Your arm might be a little sore for a while."

I hate it when people ask me why I'm cf. It's such a personal question and I usually just mumble something about not wanting to raise a kid. The truth is that I wouldn't mind having a kid, but I've spent most of my adulthood recovering from my childhood. My own mother was cruel, abusive, and prone to fits of rage. I'd kill myself if I ever treated anyone, let alone my own child, the way she treated me. But "my mother is psycho" isn't really an appropriate response when I'm asked about being cf. I just wish people would mind their own business.

It just occurred to me that never being able to remember important dates might be a good thing. People on facebook lamenting about "X years ago today, " something awful happened. Someone died, in particular. A lot of my relatives have died. Both my parents, all my grandparents.... I don't remember the dates of any of them. I will never be sad on some particular date because of something that happened that day. My mother died in the fall, and my father died in the winter. That's all I remember. I must be missing the sentiment gene or something because it doesn't bother me at all. Like maybe the first year, because it was relatively fresh but that's it. And I'm okay with that.

In response to a confession. Well, yes. Some women are happier when they have a man in their life. One woman I work with is very pleasant when she's dating someone - I mean REALLY pleasant. We always know when she's broken up with someone because she becomes snappy until she's dating again. I also used to be acquainted with a school mom who just HAD to have a man. I remember one time she said, "Never again will I put a man before my kids." I didn't know the details but just thought...yikes. Who would do that? (BTW she had 4 kids - three different fathers.) Well she did it again. Her oldest dd left home at 18 and posted all over the friend's FB about how her mother always chose men over the kids, including the one she was currently with, so she was leaving.

Another person I know, who loudly promotes their support of animal shelters and shelter animals on social media, has just purchased a designer dog that she plans to breed. Can't fucking stand that hypocritical shit. Humans suck.
