All Gawker sites, FB, Television Without Pity (which has recently closed), and forever, I read at gloryb.com which was a site called "The Other Woman". It was a site specific to the women that men were having affairs with. I think it's still there, but it's dying on the vine as no one has been approving new members for years now. It was just fascinating to read in a really trashy way. The rest of the sites I visit are all profession oriented. The ones listed are my guilty pleasures. [ Reply | More ]

op here... wow, your older sister. I am so sorry for your loss. That definately has to be rough. Losing my dad was expected and I have my dh and dc to distract me, so fortunately I am not just dealing with my sibling and mom. My bro has aspergers, so not realistic to think he can be supportive. Ticks me off is more like it, but I try to remember he doesn't mean to, it's the aspergers, but he can be grating. My mother has always been a depressed personality and has detached herself and there is no changing her. I am honestly thinking of starting some new, "get out of town" holidays with my dh and dcs that don't include them. Would this be evil? [ Reply | More ]

Thank you for your condolences - you have mine as well. I think that you need to take care of yourself (not in a selfish manner, but so that you can be the best wife and mother you can). I think that you should definitely plan a trip, you can offer for them to join you if you're pretty sure they won't (but maybe you could enjoy yourself even with them if it was in a different place, but you know better than me). I believe that it is totally acceptable to make 'new traditions' with your new family. I, of course, don't know what you should do, but I am certain that it would not be 'evil' for you to attempt to make a happy holiday for your new(er) family. Good luck and don't be afraid to take care of yourself - all the best to you! [ Reply | More ]

You most likely won't care then - she may have even passed away at that point - but if it's still important to you then, of course you can tell your adult children. Or maybe not - by the time they're old enough, they will probably have noticed themselves. Just make sure not to say that she didn't love them or anything. I think it's wonderful that you're making such an effort to protect them from the truth now. Just keep doing what you're doing for now - good job! [ Reply | More ]

2nd OR: I wanted to adopt also but dh wanted bio. So we had 2.

Alas, we waited a bit too long and it didn't happen. So you never know.

[ - ] Was walking into the store today and this white woman walking out of the exit side stared at me as I walked to the entrance and looked at her teen daughter protectively and said "baby did you get everything you wanted?", protectively covering her daughter on the shoulder while continui to stare at me until I walked inside. I'm a 22 year old Asian female, I was dressed normally, but I felt like a criminal the way she acted. It was really uncomfortable. I couldn't stop going over in my head if I did someing wrong or rude, just thought I'd share. Are asian women the new black man or something ? Please enlighten me 17 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] With a $1mm budget (best if closer to $750k), what are the best areas to look for a weekend home less than 2.5 hr drive from Manhattan? On weekends, we like to swim, ride bikes, relax, read, be close to nature, play tennis, have casual dinner at home with friends, skate/play hockey and ski in winter and go to the beach in the summer. We have an active kid and an active dog. Want to stay away from areas that tend to have more guns or drugs. Thx. 23 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] I'm about to marry a great guy; we're early 30's, do okay money-wise, live in the city and don't have any major issues. However, my mom (who I'm extremely close to as an only child and a product of divorce) lives in a different state (that I'm from originally) and is having a really hard time. She gets SSDI for Depression and now is in a legal dispute with her family regarding where she will live. She really has no money (due to her depression; she used to be quite successful). I've been staying with her in the state she lives in (in a motel room that her family's estate is paying for, for the time being) and I think I've been pretty helpful to her regarding hearings and getting her a new lawyer (because I'm not depressed) and now applying for Section 8 or other public housing on her behalf. I totally understand that my fiance misses me and it sucks that I'm not sure how long she'll need my help, but I can't just leave her alone and I know I won't be away from home for more than another month or so.
