[ - ] Suburban moms -- is a house four doors down from back entrance to HS a problem? Not near main athletic fields, but they do have a parking lot there, and I can see that students also park on street (apparently most days, the spillover parking goes up to my street in front of my house). Any thoughts as to how much this will annoy me? 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I am having trouble deciding. Very nice home, 10-15 minute walk to train. Back yard borders on road which is adjacent to train tracks so you also get train noise. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Am I crazy....I already have my holiday cards. I send around 250 (big families and both still working). They are already addressed. Kids are older and won't look much different. I love the holidays but always feel bogged down by this and figured I was going to move to a much smaller list or bang it out early. I thought I was being efficient but when the box arrived on Saturday with three other families over (I didn't open it but the kids announced it hoping it was their Halloween costumes) I stated the above. Everyone acted like I was a lunatic. I think my husband thought I was being efficient (as did I) but now mutual acquaintances are saying stuff like "heard we should be on the look out for our card before TG). Anyway, I asked one friend about it and she turned it in to "her being disorganized" but they were teasing me (which I thought was in fun!) I know this isn't a "real problem" but it seems like something so caddy to gossip about. 12 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Honestly, it takes a while. 25 percent of the list changes depending on new friends/new colleagues and peoples addresses change. I also write in everyone which I get people think is meaningless but matters to me. FWIW, the outsides are pre-printed which I typically never do but it still will cut into the time I want to be hosting parties, making cookies, shopping, decorating the place. I love getting them and know I should send them but writing them out (and tracking down addresses)is my least favorite task aside from cleaning dishes as it relates to the holidays [ Reply | More ]

So, so, many reasons... but the thing that's bugging me today is that she has hypochondria and OCD so there's a million things she won't do because she thinks they might harm her health-wise (like put neosporin on DS's scrapes, open a jar of picked beets). It's driving me crazy. [ Reply | More ]

Yes. Plenty. Though there is some global variation. Mostly good, though the men only thing grates in this age. Its a club. They get together, do the ceremonies, then have dinner. Just like a football club, or a book club. The "point" of the club is to promote fellowship and good works. The ceremonies are historical allegorical mini-plays about those themes. Most lodges (clubs) are linked to something (e.g., a town, or school, or profession). Thats about it. There is some mutual backscratching, but no more than between members of any other club (e.g., alumni association). Lots of conspiracy theories though. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I have invited SIL to every Thanksgiving, birthday, etc for the past 14 years, but she (and my brother and their dd) have never come -- she even blew off our wedding. Literally, my invitation-to-attending record is zero, but I invite to every event because my parents would be hurt if I didn't try, and my dc's really want to get to know their aunt/uncle/cousins. This year, my DH's sister is hosting the holiday, so naturally I did not invite my brother's family, as it was not my "party" and therefore not my invitation to extend, although DH's brother did invite my parents, because they know each other from years of family events. So now my sister-in-law is complaining to my parents that I never invite her to anything. Really? My parents deflected (they know the situation and were stunned) and apparently she is going to send me an email telling me how hurt she is that I always exclude them. Should I even bother to respond, or should I just ignore it? 13 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I would aboslutely respond and point out that this is the first time you have not invited her to something ever. Why would you not? [ Reply | More ]

Not quite - she has NEVER not invited them. This year she isn't hosting. She has ALWAYS invited them. But I agree - still respond. [ Reply | More ]

Don't ignore. But don't fight. Just respond with the facts. "Dear SIL, I'm sorry you feel that I don't include you. I would just like to remind you of the invitations extended to [list every single fucking event here] that you declined. Kind regards". [ Reply | More ]

You have facts on your side. Definitely respond: "I don't understand, Sally, I've invited you to every family event for years, since Bob and I got married. In fact, I don't think you even came to our wedding, did you?" And then let her try to explain herself. [ Reply | More ]

Well, you are acting irrationally. And I feel like you being uncomfortable for 1 hour while you take them out trick or treating is the right thing to do. If you keep them home and ruin Halloween for them for something that isn't a rational threat, then I think you're being a bit indulgent. But I also think a therapist might not be a bad idea.
