1. I nag him about helping out.
2. I never put anything away. There are piles of clutter everywhere.
3. I want him to pay attention to me all the time.
4. I refuse to have any more kids.
5. I procrastinate constantly.
1. He's so uptight. Everything has to be done YESTERDAY. I wish he'd mellow sometimes.
2. Watches wrestling and tries to talk to me about it.
3. Seems to feel that working should be the only thing he has to do.
4. Doesn't seem to get that he doesn't have to BUY me gifts. I'm just not that into getting "stuff". I'd much rather him clean the house for me or give me a relaxing massage.
5. He also watches tv with the volume turned to a level that assures...

Been there, done that except DH is NOT dark skinned. I'm hispanic (very light skinned), DH is caucasian and DD is really light too. For some odd reason, when she was about 2 years old, every time she saw a dark skinned man she'd say "There's my daddy!"
One time an african-american man heard...
1. Money - I'm a saver, he's a spender.
2. Parenting styles - He says I need to ease up on DD, I think he needs to stop letting her get away with everything.
3. Division of household chores - He feels that his job is very demanding so when he's off, he should be totally off. I work too, but I usually do all the cooking, cleaning, bill-paying, grocery shopping, school stuff, dr/dentist appts., etc... I have to admit, he helps out more than the majority of...
There are book swapping Yahoo groups. I joined a romance one. To weed out the bad seeds they ask that you swap with established members for the first three trades. You send your book first and once they get it they will send theirs. After that you can swap freely. Not sure if that's the way most of them work though because I've only ever joined this one.
You don't have to adopt her, but you will need to be her legal guardians so the military will consider her a dependent of your DH. We did this with my brother. He's been living with us since he was 14 (going on 4 years now). Since my grandmother was willing to sign over guardianship, it wasn't a terribly complicated or long process. I think it took a few weeks and cost us about $650.
I'm not going to lie, it does throw quite a monkey wrench into your life. DB has...

“Duh” is a big pet peeve. I can’t deal with “Duh”.
I'm glad I'm not the only one bothered by "nucular". My family thinks I'm weird for it. If Bush is on tv and says it, they all look over at me and snicker. :
Duh really irritates me too. It's so rude and disrespectful. I do home daycare for school age kids so...

: My DD cut her hair. Twice. Both times when it was me home.
The first time she was about 2 years 7 months. DH and I had moved to San Diego into our first apartment together. I was trying to pretty it up for my parents to come visit. I was hanging pics on the wall when DD came to me and handed me the scissors. I took them and got off the ladder to put them away. As I'm walking I see a trail of hair. When I looked at her I realized she cut her bangs completely...
