To this day, some of it is seemingly unexplainable. He had a lot of people cover for him and he made up a lot of lies to explain his absence and the absence of a family. I lived in the city, where he worked, while his wife lived in the suburbs with her kids. He kept an apartment in the city and to my understanding, told his wife that he was traveling/staying late at work. [ Reply | More ]

She was seeing this guy that great up in our old neighborhood. He would rarely spend the night and was always working super - late in spite of having a very regular 9-5 job. She had never been to his home but his excuse was that he lived far. I ran into his cousin (from childhood) and casually asked how he was doing. She stated that he was doing well, lived in CT, and he and his wife had a two year old daughter. I had to break it to my sister. He denied it all and she continued to see him for a few months even resorting to calling his wife. She finally came to her sense thank God. [ Reply | More ]

I've had the tv on in the background since day 1. Snark away, but when you have 1 dc and it's just the 2 of you trying to play, the silence can be so sad. It's nice to have some background noise and it's nice not to feel that I have to fill the silence with constant chatter. [ Reply | More ]
