How's this for getting things in perspective? I'm privileged to have an 86-year-old WW2 heroine as a friend. She is Dutch - one of those people who secretly helped pilots get back to England. Her late husband pretended to be an SS officer but was eventually caught and put in a concentration camp, but survived. She is also an artist, photographer, brilliant duplicate bridge player and teacher, and avid reader of important books. She suddenly went blind two days ago and can only distinguish light from dark. When I spoke to her on the phone today she said "Oh, it's just another challenge." And if I know this wonderful lady, she will meet it and defeat it.

LoriP

Nahh, everything I've done on the net this morn has been like dial-up. I think they're doing an upgrade, which is slowing things down. :(
6:23 am
Frances

I can't use beta on a big grid as it takes about two minutes to add each word!
6:23 am

Last time I used beta on a grid this big I had it freeze and had to retsart. I expect that again this time.

my husband works 80+ hours a week cus he a workaholic..and she think I should be working at least 60... and my kids JUST turned 15 adn 11
1:09 pm

so...while girls in grade 7 and 8 are busy being unsupervised... ( 12 and 13 yrs) are comin to school drunnk... and the girls are busy giving blowjobs behind the portables... I am to just say... GO... raise urselves?
1:09 pm
flosey

don't let her do it to you, if hubby is working 80 hours then you need to be there for the kids as well as hubby
1:09 pm
NonoNanette

carlee they are not old enough to be on their own and you have managed this long with only part time job tell mil to buzz off

and whats worse..HE AGREES WITH HER
1:10 pm
flosey

NO WAY!
1:10 pm
carleekat

yeap
1:10 pm

I don't suppose MIL volunteered to supervise the teen girls while mom is working? Tell her to sod off, Carlee.
1:11 pm
flosey

does he care what his kids are doing when unsupervised
1:11 pm
carleekat

oh no..she alread has one grand daughter who is 17..tatooed and living with her 22 year old boyfriend whom she holds up as the perfect example of how my kids can grow up and be perfect
1:11 pm
flosey

perhaps you don't want her helping out either
1:12 pm
carleekat

she is still in high school... a CATHOLIC highschool
1:12 pm
Judi

Wow. She sounds like a twisted sister, Carlee. Sounds like hubby needs to be re-programed as well. Time to lay down the law.
1:13 pm
carleekat

that just it..the whole freaking family like this... and they are the one telling me I am wrong...
1:13 pm
flosey

stand strong Carlee, you know what's best for your kids - and you also have to look after yourself
1:13 pm
Judi

So grateful that my MIL does not interfer in our lives. She's just a sweet old lady that barely says boo to anyone.
1:13 pm
carleekat

crap I am tired of being "wrong"
1:14 pm
flosey

you're not wrong carlee, don't let anyone give you these guilt trips
1:14 pm
Aloyisius

i totally agree with flosey, carlee.. what you do for your kids is most important, and perhaps there is another way to help the budget..
1:14 pm
Judi

As long as your finances are manageable, Carlee, there's no need for both of you to be absentee parents. Tell MIL you'll think about getting a full time job when the first one goes off to college. That might hold her off for a while.
1:14 pm
carleekat

well I suppose I could prostitue myself...after hours...
1:15 pm
flosey

so what if it takes a few more years to pay off a mortgage - your kids benefit by having you around and that's far more important
1:15 pm
hurshy

i hear that pays well
1:15 pm
carleekat

so have I hurshy
1:15 pm
