Re: Conversation starter: Old friend--What would you do?

I think this is it.

I called her because I'm too dang nosey! When she worked, she did retail, but was laid off about 20 years ago and hasn't worked since. In the conversation, she said she...

Conversation starter: Old friend--What would you do?

A million years ago, I had a good friend. We were friends for several years and had history. I was the maid of honor at her wedding and paid for a few things with the promise that it would be paid...

Re: mean "girls" in the work place

That's terrible. Maybe she will quit and things will improve if you can't move. :)

Re: mean "girls" in the work place

What other options do you have, snafu?

I recently started working in a school. We have cliques and mean girls. I found a group to be with. It makes lunch easier.

Re: Hot and Cold Friend

Giving her space is the right thing to do. It's hurting you right now because you miss her, and because you are not filling that space with other people and activities. So, change the story. ...

Re: Brother not there

I'm so sorry for your struggles, lilly210.

Your brother has a problem with substance abuse. It's very likely that Suzy is also an abuser. If you are concerned about your brother harming...

Baby Showers

Is this typical now?

I was invited to a baby shower. Parents are part of the planning, so not a surprise. They include registries, which I looked at and was like, OMG! $100 for a stuffed...

Re: Despondency

Hi, Pad, Welcome back!

I'm sorry that you do not feel happy, don't know what will make you happy, or know what you want.

A few things may be affecting you.

First, there's enormous pressure...

Re: Moving for my in-laws?

You already know that your ILs are responsible for their own debt, and you should not sacrifice your security for them.

If they are in debt and can't afford to pay it back, they should be talking...

Re: mean "girls" in the work place

Documenting is good. Have you read anything on Relational Aggression? I found some of the articles to be very helpful in identifying and helping handle the mean girl.

Re: At the movies II

A Star is Born-- Wonderful! I am in awe of the talent!

Night School-- This was much funnier than I thought. I did not expect to laugh so hard! Plus, it has a serious note that I appreciated.

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

If DIL meant this to be hurtful, she's got a win-win. Does he know it was mailed to your DD?

The same reasoning which illustrates that it was stupid for him to sign it are the same reasons why...

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

Because it's easier to sign it than it is to fight with the woman he's sleeping with. Men (all people, really) do some dumb things to avoid a fight. He's probably thinking that the paper means...

Re: Dr apts. responsibility

"Normal" is exactly what you're doing. If DS wants you, go with him. If he needs you to make appointments for him while he's at school, do it.

My kids just were ready to do it themselves.

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

I understand your pain. I don't want to minimize that.

I do want you to hold off on any confrontations. This "living will" is not the right fight. The document is stupid.

Honestly, DIL...
