Re: two truths and a lie

Snafu is correct. My DH went skydiving and I watched. I have no interest in trying it, ever.

Re: Hi there!

Hello Padmini,


Nice to meet you! I am a professor in a doctoral program (and also a professor in other programs).


How far along are you in your pursuit of the doctorate?

Re: two truths and a lie

I'll try this too!

Two truths and a lie:

1. I have sky-dived.

2. I've been to Hawaii 3 different times.

3. I have an immediate family member who graduated from Princeton.

Re: Baby Showers

I'd give a gift card instead of cash, and I don't know the going rate for everyone, but I'd keep it at $50.00 or less unless it was a very close relative like a Grandbaby.

I think those...

Re: Work relationships

Can you have a conversation with her about how long she will continue helping? Unless I saw signs or heard her talk of plans of completely bowing out, I think I'd attempt a conversation with her....

Re: Here we go again with the step mother to be

KayKay, you wanted to know why he should be embarrassed to sign it. The reason he should be embarrassed to sign it is because it could never be enforced, and I know him well enough to know he is...

Re: Here we go again with the step mother to be

Thanks everyone, for letting me vent here. I will continue to work through this with a therapist. The thing is that I can't give enough details to really explain my relationship with my DS. The...

Re: Here we go again with the step mother to be

Thanks, Lucy.

I do plan to hold off until I talk to the therapist again, at least. I'm not planning to "fight" about this. If that is how my post came off, I need to clarify. I just want to simply...

Re: Here we go again with the step mother to be

It's gone from bad to worse. I have finally gone to see a therapist over this because I can't sleep at night, and yes I was presented with an awful revelation since my last posting, that now may very...

Re: Here we go again with the step mother to be

So it continues with my DIL. She continues to post negativity on FB and feels she will get support and sympathy and does seem to get some. I absolutely try to pretend I don't see it. I'd love to...

Re: When do you stop supporting "the dream."

It is frustrating as a parent to see your grown child do this, whether you offer any financial support, or not. My DS works hard, does not usually quit his jobs, but was fired from 3 different ones...

Re: Here we go again with the step mother to be

KayKay,

Thanks for clarifying. I truly hope that someday my grandchildren will look back with the same affection for their step-mother. As I have said many times, she has many great qualities, but...

Re: Here we go again with the step mother to be

KayKay,




She seems more stubborn than your SM so far. The kids have thrown up when she forces them to eat. She says they are faking being sick and making themselves throw up somehow. I...

Re: Cold shoulder - wide or skinny - what the &$%* is going on with clothes?

I guess I'm behind the times! I just got three "cold shoulders" shirts. My H informed he does not like them and prefers a regular tank top. I want to force him to like them since I bought them, ha...

Re: Is it normal for an ex-wife and a new wife to bond?

I would say it is not common, but not that rare for the ex and new wife to be friends. But I think you are starting to see this may be more like a three way thing, and your brother, whom you know to...

Sad that someone so young with seemingly so much to live for did this.

Ironically, I never heard of her before this past Christmas. I did not know what to get my DS's girlfriend (now wife) for...

Re: Found out I have a new cousin!
