I can spot a hugger over the interwebs. Which is why I thought it was insane that Sara was asking since she is so clearly not a hugger.
Like I've said before, I don't even like eye contact. So hugging is rough. Though I'm getting better at it with age. I'm going to make an exception and hug Sara just to make her uncomfortable.
If I told you that this sentence was enough to make me uncomfortable, could we skip the hug? I don't initiate hugs with virtual strangers, but I learned long ago to go with the flow, thankyouverymuch.Quote:I almost had that one. Why you gotta be so mean?

I hug my close friends, lots. And I tend to hug if we've shared some kind of experience. I gladly hug anyone back, but rarely initiate.
I'll post wedding pictures later. I'd like to fit my wedding dress again, but for now, I remain fluffy. I'm OK with it, except for the massive spine-injuring boobs. And one is like three cup sizes bigger than the other. And the little one is a G cup.
if there was anything else to reply to, I can't remember.
Oh, and my personal update that Amanda asked about - the gist is that because of all of our housing drama I'm in survival mode, and non-essentials like pondering my sexuality are back-burnered. I do know that making my relationship work with DH is important to me, because we have a good thing going in all but the bedroom. We'll see how it all pans out once I have more leisure for self work.post #807 of 15028/21/13 at 9:05pmpost #808 of 15028/21/13 at 9:17pmQuote:
You are officially unwelcome in my home. Not because I wouldn't love to have you, but because you wouldn't love to be here.
I love dressing up. My wedding was just an excuse to put on fake eyelashes, red lipstick, and a dress that weighed 80 pounds. I dress up as ofen as I can, the rest of the time I look homeless.
Kay, how fantastic you move in 10 days! I bet you can't wait to close this chapter of your life.post #809 of 15028/22/13 at 4:52ampost #810 of 15028/22/13 at 5:09am
I'm telling ya, Sara, you don't know what you're missing with fake eyelashes... I've only worn them once, for my sister's wedding, and I've never felt sexier. For real. They just do something magical.
I don't have a specific place picked out, but I picture myself renewing vows in nature someplace beautiful outside with just me, DH, our kid(s), and friends. I know, rude to family... mayyyybe I'd invite a few of them. But here's the deal. My mom made my wedding day about her in so many ways ("I'm getting my hair done first, I'm getting my makeup done first") and even left me stranded at the mall an hour before my own wedding (!) By the time I walked up the aisle, my mind was racing so bad I didn't even get to emotionally be present for the ceremony. I was trying to just shut down emotionally from the horrible morning I had. Biggest regret of my life. I wanted to FEEL that moment. I enjoyed the reception, but the ceremony part itself I just didn't get to enjoy... and that was the most important thing to me. End pity party. It was still beautiful. And getting your wedding party to stand outside in the snowy freezing temperatures for pictures because ain't nobody messing with the bride? Priceless.
RE: Homeless look. I rock more of the perpetual college student look than homeless. I've never gotten away from the ease of wearing sweatpants everywhere. LOL. Oy. At least I don't wear the old tapered ankle-hugging ones... They're still boot-cut workout-like pants.post #811 of 15028/22/13 at 5:22amQuote:
I feel that way in platform boots, I'm thinking I missed the eyelash love gene and that fake ones would hit my glasses. Weddings seem stressful to me.
Maybe I don't dress like I'm homeless, but I don't have style. As soon as the heat passes, I'll be back to brown cords all the time.
Mal, your wedding pictures are so fun. I especially like the wheelbarrow one and the black and whites. And I love how well labeled your albums are.post #812 of 15028/22/13 at 5:43am
I've never worn fake eyelashes. I'm okay with that.
I used to have more style than I do now. I used to have a "no t-shirts in public" rule. Now I enjoy wearing festival and work t-shirts every evening and all weekend. If I do anything half way decent, I look decent. I suppose my style is clothes that don't go out of style. I don't like to get rid of stuff and I don't like trendy! I love work clothes. Work clothes have always been one of my favorite parts of working.post #813 of 15028/22/13 at 6:10ampost #814 of 15028/22/13 at 6:55amThread Starter
Ahhh!!!!!!!!!!! Now I know how regular posters on this forum must feel all the time. I CAN'T KEEP UP! Ash, canning did kick my butt. I had a raging headache for the rest of the day. Sigh.
So, Amanda, if you can spot huggers, which type am I?
Sara, weddings are stressful. I swear my first grey hairs came during my wedding planning. So many expectations and people to please. And then you're doing this thing in front of so many people- I was crazy nervous. People thought I was angry walking down the aisle, but it was a mix of extreme nerves and emotions. The rest of the day was awesome, though. No fake eyelashes for me.
As for fashion... I dress like I'm still in high school or maybe going on a camping trip.... it's the PNW in me. When I used to work in the schools, people used to mistake me for a middle schooler when I was in the halls and tell me to get back to my classroom. You know, despite the fact that I was wearing an ID card and an engagement ring.
Mal, sorry about the work situation. That would be SO hard. When are you opening up your own school? Then you can tell them all off and leave. If you want to move here then you could start a Montessori preschool with my neighbor. She's a trained teacher and wants to open up her own school, but can't wrap her mind around the funds. Having a partner would help! Then we could be neighbors. Okay, it's settled.
Amanda, what's your dh doing now?
Sara, you got bit?
Kirsten- YAY for your new home!!! Fill us in! How are things with your dh these days? With you?
Joanie- yes, potty training time. I know that will be hard with your work schedules and all, but you can talk with her daycare and see how they can support potty training efforts you start at home.
Farting... it's not something dh and I do around each other, or at least we try not to. But it's such a guy thing. The boys already do it all the time and thing it's SO funny. Austin will seriously laugh so hard he falls off his chair and that will get Avery going, too. Peas in a pod those two.
Ash... any news on a solution to your bills and vacation issue?
I'm sure I missed a bunch of stuff...post #815 of 15028/22/13 at 7:24ampost #816 of 15028/22/13 at 7:44amQuote:If I'm not smiling, people think I'm angry. I have resting b*tch face. And yeah, I got bit hard.
I think Nicole is right.post #817 of 15028/22/13 at 7:58ampost #818 of 15028/22/13 at 8:08amIt's called bitchy resting face. Get it right. I'm the poster bitch for the condition.
I'm in the most boring training ever.
Okay, this is going to be deep: Jaimee, you want to be a hugger. Like a sweet little hippie hug giver. But secretly, you don't like a lot of physical contact. So you are a conflicted hugger who gives quick, cursory hugs.
Ash, I can't believe you won't let me come to your house!
Sara, lots of things are classic. I tend to wear straight or boot cut jeans, flats, a nice fitted tee, a cardigan or jacket, and a scarf. Always sort of on the verge of style and mom. Oh, and a-line skirts with boots will always be acceptable. I'm sure all of these are totally in your wardrobe.
I'm trying to pick my battles with dh, but it's tough. He's a jerk sometimes, which is probably my number one battle. He's totally spoiling Jasper, which is driving me crazy. I'm trying to let it go. Please reassure me that watching the movie Cars 24/7 and eating yogurt, puffs, and peanut butter sandwiches for every meal won't cause permanent harm.post #819 of 15028/22/13 at 8:11amDh thinks that everything Jasper asks for he should get. He does more parenting than I do, so that's mostly what ends up happening. Want a 100th snack? Ok! iPad? Ok! Movie? Ok! He doesn't want J to cry and doesn't want to deal with tantrums. The kid won't even taste meals anymore because he knows dad will give him crap. Won't sit at the table cause he knows dad will hold him. Etcpost #820 of 15028/22/13 at 8:14am
