I actually agree with most of the stuff you just said- the casual sex thing, the getting attached before meeting thing, and the generalizing thing. And you have no idea how much I appreciate your support when I'm feeling down (that goes for everyone). However, there are some things I'm always gonna disagree with you on, and I'm gonna express them. It makes life more interesting.
I'm sorry you have things going on right now that are stressing you out. Do you care to share? I can't help but notice that we never hear about any problems from you. I don't think I've ever seen you start a thread. Can we not help you through whatever it is you're dealing with? I don't mean that to criticize, I can just tell things are bothering you and I'd hate for them to fester (I know all about that, trust me).
Deena (who just broke passover with the girls by consuming lots of pizza and cookies, after confessing that she had broken passover earlier in the week . . .)
Anyway, if you need to vent about something, you have my email, right? I sent it to everyone before they took ivillage email away from us. I'm glad you took some time to relax. That can do wonders for keeping us all sane.
This weekend, I'm going home for my niece's bday party. She'll be 14 (sniff sniff) and she has every bit of a 14 year old attitude. Should be a blast....haha. We'll see if I come back stressed or more relaxed.
Thanks for understanding and I sure will consider the email offer - my ivillage friends and I that email have an understanding that it never gets posted on the board by the recipient - one friend - who I met in person - sort of broke that rule and I let her know gently that it could not happen again - was not a bad thing but I didn't want her to continue down that path.
Have a great day!
i guess i'm just a little more soft handed with my approach. ;-)
She's a good kid, I just think she needs some structure, as all kids do. Unfortunately, my sister doesn't give it to her.
