I am beat. I think I might head to bed. Have to turn on my heated mattress pad and put away the laundry I did today and put the dinner dishes in the dishwasher. By the time I do that and my nightly routine...it should be a whopping 9 o'clock LOL.

Yes txt. How was the date? Did you or did you not have dinner? At the mall? There are some really good places there.

Inquiring minds want to know.

We got wasabi janes and I -think- it went well idk...I do think I'm over trying for now though if it doesn't work out.

All I know is I'm in -a lot- of pain my back, shoulders and neck hurt so bad you can FEEL the knots all over and how tense and locked up my muscles are, yet its not cheap nor justifiable for me to go get a massage although my friend who's a radio dj gets the flu and runs out and gets a massage after he's better....

All I want is a decent back rub yet that's asking for something unreasonable...
A good decent massage so I can relieve some pain....that's a natural human need...to not want to feel pain and I don't find that too much to ask for.

Hello friends,

Sorry I have been absent I have been volunteering at fashion week I basically work from 8:30-1o every day! Yikes, it's been fun but the first two days I really didn't get a break from standing and it really caught up to me yesterday and I was literally exhausted. My boss sent me out to get money from the ATM and I swiped it at the blockbuster kiosk inside Duane Reade thinking it was an ATM.

Today we got better breaks so we would stand for about 4 hours and get a sit down for an hour and a half. I feel SO much better though my feet and lower back ache a little.

What's up with the bathroom thread? Can't use the bathroom alone till you're 20? Geez was my mom supposed to drive down to college every time I needed to pee or god forbid shower?

Ugh, and again according to a poster we aren't allowed to have an opinion since we don't have kids yet. It isn't as though we were parented or maybe have had a very large part in parenting someone who is not our child. Sorry, I get a bit tiffed when people say things like that.

This thread has been on here before & usually generates the same responses. I've been staying away from the threads that get nasty.

I see what you are saying. I think if both sides are showing a level of internet respect , it shouldn't matter. (I read some of the responses & some of the responses from "parents" are not necessary. No need to belittle, that is for sure!)

I have toddlers & don't really post on things about teenagers b/c I really have no idea what life is like raising teenagers, though. I can put in my two cents, but that is all that it is... Sometimes I post things about children in college b/c of my experience in college. But, I have a big feeling when my boys get that age, some things will be different & I will probably see some things different from a parent standpoint.

Being parented & being a parent are two completely different entities. But I refer back a ton to how I was parented in the raising of my boys, so sometimes it is one in the same.

My #1 will take the bus to school next year & that is giving me a panic attack. There are some things that as parents it is overwhelming to let your child go. It's vitally necessary & healthy, but it can be very scary from the parent standpoint. I think this is where being a parent versus being parent differs. Your children bring out some strange & amazing emotions. Sometimes mother bear goes into full force & other times you want to sell them on ebay.

But everyone is entitled to their opinion & no parent or child has the "right" answer!!

Common respect goes a long way. There are some really kooky parents out there & some nonparents who think they know the right answers. Not sure why, but that is life!

There is a pretty funny thread on someone who obviously posted a question from their teacher/professor looking for homework help....those are the ones I prefer
