[ - ] Even though I just got married it still feels uneasy for me to see my Ex's gf sitting in his car ready to zip off to the country for the weekend. He was mean and abusive and I know I'm better off but I still wish sometimes that dd's initial home was intact. 2 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Thanks. I've been on top of that for the last five years. When she was three she firmly told him don't at me. He was annoyed and told me. He also knows that he can never lay a hand on her. He teases her frequently in a way that I don't like (he used to do the same to me and it often involved putting me down ) but it is unfortunately something that I can't control either than addressing it when I hear it or if she says something to me. Nevertheless she loves her father and looks forward to weekends with him. [ Reply | More ]

We have a rabbit someone ditched in or near our yard. Took him to vet and had ticks and fleas taken care of and adopted him. He's on his own, but housed in a dog pen in family room so kids can go in and play. Super happy guy on his own, but gets a ton of attention. We've had rabbits before, but this one is friendliest. As long as you're petting him, he'll lie there and grind his teeth in bliss. Likes to play fetch with paper towel rolls and little balls, too. [ Reply | More ]
