(or are these acronyms??)<br><br><br>
Case in point*: <i>My DH and DD and I went to the park on PT, after my FT job ended, and I NIP'ed my DD while the FBI and CIA, FYI, weren't there. FWIW, MHO is that NIP'ing and BF'ing in general is better than FF'ing, like CD'ing. I got home and put a CD in the CD player and washed the CD's while my DH watched TV. Later, I debated SAHD v WOHD v SAHM v SAHW v WOHW v WOHM, CC, UC, UB, UP, on MDC and AOL. B/C we're NFP, we're not using BC right now and my AF came today. AFAIC my DH seems happy. Tommorrow, my IL's are coming, and FTR I really think it would be best as a LDR. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
So now, I'm going to get back to TTC B4 SO begins WAH. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br></i><br><br>

it totally reminded me of a commercial i saw last night (this is huge since i rarely watch television). it was for some cell company, want to say verison, when the mom gets the bill and is talking to her child about who she texts so much in one day. the daughter though is responding to the mom in just acronyms, big long huge ones that drove me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:<br><br>

LDR can also be Living and Dining Room in a Real Estate ad! I knew about Part Time and Credit Card but neither of those made sense in this context, so I was confused.

Or, if you hang on mainstream mama fora, CC can also stand for "Controlled Crying." <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
I love acronyms, though.<br><br>
As long as they aren't those horrible forced acronyms that governmental agencies try to force random words into for the sake of.... cuteness, I guess.<br><br>
There are three new family-support programs on post that I was reading about yesterday. One is L.I.V.E, another is S.A.F.E, and I think the other was A.P.E or something similarly bizarre.

While we're on the topic, what does STBX stand for? (I probably screwed that up...it's the one people use when referring to an ex, but I don't know what the letters mean!)
