My Ex Hates It When I Write About Him

One of my exes hates that I talk about him, and because we've recently become friends again, I told him that I would restrict discussions about our relationship to my journal.Then I got to thinking...He and I dated some time ago, and after not speaking to me for over a year, he apologized, and we became "friends" again.  Months of checking up on each other, random conversations about future plans, and generally friendly things made me feel like everything with us was okay....more

Are My Facebook Posts Obnoxious?

The messages that started this post were a few of the comments I received. I know most of them were meant to be sarcastic because only my family, where sarcasm is a dominant gene, and friends, whom if not connoisseurs of sarcasm don't last long, are my friends on Facebook. So I know they were just teasing... sort of... kind of... right? Or are they nicely, with humor, trying to tell me something else? Does posting this kind of thing make me obnoxious? Is it offensive? Does it mean that I'm unfeeling or out of touch? Am I a show-off and just plain nasty? ...more
No, you're not being obnoxious, but if you get a lot of rude remarks like that, those people are ... more

Moms in New Jersey Can Now Ban Dads from the Delivery Room

A ruling in New Jersey now allows mothers to ban fathers from the delivery room. Citing privacy laws afforded all patients in choosing who gets to be at their bedside, the judge ruled in favor of Rebecca Deluccia by allowing her to keep Steven Plotnick out of the room. Honestly, I didn't think this was even an issue. Surely mothers in labor can choose who is and is not allowed in the room, right? ...more

10 Things I Hate About HGTV House Hunters

I love to watch HGTV. One of the shows that is on quite often is House Hunters. I like to watch the show because of the great variety of houses and apartments they show around the country and the world. For some reason, I love to peek into other people’s lives through their homes....more

Can I Ask Another Mom to Change Her Kid's Nickname?

I wish Evangeline’s family would pick another nickname for their daughter so it’s easier to tell them apart. I believe that going by the full name is off the table, but they have lots of other choices! We have run into confusion a couple of times with classmates/parents of classmates getting the girls confused. Nothing fatal, but still! I would hate for my girl to have her feelings hurt because of it. ...more

'Mad Men' Returns For Season Six: Wait, Was That It?

Well all the buildup for the season premiere of last night's Mad Men left me wondering...is this it? Two hours, and we're left knowing nothing more than what we knew when we left them at the end of Season Five. I don't know when I will ever get used to how underwhelming the Mad Men premieres are. The juicy stuff always comes mid-season. After six seasons, this shouldn't be a surprise to me, but Madison Avenue is almost exactly how it was when we left it months ago....more
I agree, this was a total disappointment. I kept thinking about when Breaking Bad starts ... more
