    Does anyone know if the Love and Logic book is good? I think I've seen some people talk about it here.
    I couldn't find the girlfriend's guide to toddlers. I found another girlfriend's guide, I think it was a pregnancy one or a baby one.
    I was about to buy Love and Logic but the line was long and Josh was not having it. I found it a little ironic.

    Happy anniversary to us even though it isn't until the 21st! lol
    Cool, so worth it? Our 7th wedding anniversary is Monday and we're planning on seeing it after a nice lunch together. We haven't seen a movie since my last trimester of pregnancy, so a movie will really be a treat.

    We really enjoyed it. It had a lot of funny parts and a few "aww" parts too.

    I confess we just got back from the ole karaoke joint. I told Jimi last week that if he wanted to have a few drinks, even though I didn't think he SHOULD (he has Hep C and has to be sober for 6 months before having a liver biopsy and starting chemotherapy), I wouldn't be mad at him just because I couldn't. He kept insisting he wasn't going to drink and didn't even want to. As we were leaving the house I heard him tell our friend that he was thinking about having a few. Ha...a few, lol. People were buying him shots left and right and he had way more than a few beers. He even partook in a bit of green, if you know what I mean.

    Even though tons of people canceled and never showed, he says he has had an awesome birthday. Started with IHOP this morning, then we got his golf clubs, had lunch at a place with his favorite pastrami burger sandwich, went and got the first two seasons of Family Guy for him and then this evening. I'm glad he had a good time and he isn't acting like a drunken ass.

    Bean, is it a new thing or have you been depressed for a long time? Could it be where you have moved to?
    Although it sounds trite, your life is what you make it. If you want someone else to change, you have to change yourself first.

    My sister is doing it again! She showed up to our dinner out last night and talked at length about how she and her dh were waiting to have children until after we were done, and now she doesn't know if we're ever going to stop. Then she said that she wanted the name Esme, but she can't use it because of us. Dh snapped at her, "Well, it's available again!"

    I'm so sick of her being negative about everything, and I'm mad at myself for letting her ruin our dinner out and being irritated for this long.

    How totally insensivive and idiotic. I am so sorry! Why does she want to wait until you are done having kids before she has any?

    She says "To avoid competition." This is only the latest in a long series of reasons she's not having children.
    1. She wants to focus on her career.
    2. She doesn't want to get fat.
    3. She was diagnosed with a clotting disorder and therefore shouldn't get pregnant.
    4. She doesn't want competition between our children.
    5. I stole her favorite baby name and ruined it.

    It's been pretty obvious that she doesn't want to have children, but I'm unhappy that she's now publicly trying to lay the blame on me.

    I'm getting madder and madder the more I think about it, and at this point I don't ever feel like seeing her again (not just because of this). I am upset after every time we talk because she is so unrelentingly angry and selfish.

    I know how hard it is, because she's family, but sometimes you really have to cut toxic people out of your life. She sounds almost cruel.

    her!
    It sounds like her real problem is she just doesn't want to have kids. So why does she keep coming up with the lame "excuses"?

    Jenny, you look amazing! It must feel even more amazing, though. I am in awe!!!! I need to tell DH about you He's currently in the middle of his own weightloss battle - aims to loose about 40lbs, down 6lbs so far.

    Lydia... judging from her reasons, your sister very obviously either does not want to have children or is very scared of having children and she is trying to blame her decisions on you and DH because it's easier to blame someone else than publicly admit that you simply do not want children. I hope she realizes how childish she sounds and how much she's hurting you

    She sounds like a royal b to the double itch. How much more oblivious can you be?

    Lydia, sorry to hear about your sister. I agree that she doesn't want to deal with the fact that she doesn't want children and is trying to blame someone else for it. In your position I probably would have snapped at her for the name comment.

    Your sister is being cruel. Were you two ever close? Did you ever have a good relationship? How close in age are you??

    Jenny, wow, you are awesome! I'm sure those 30 pounds will come off soon with how well you've done so far.

    Lydia, I'm sorry your sister is being such a numnuts. That's just not cool what she said. It sounds like you need some time away from her and her negativity.

    Dh is telling me I just need to stop caring about the things she says. That I could stop seeing her but it wouldn't make any difference because I'd still care and I'd get endless grief. So I'm trying to let it go.

    We were close when we were very little and close for a while in my mid-to-late twenties, spanning the time before and after I moved out here to California, only a short ways away from her. After a time I realized that her constant negativity and grudge-nursing was difficult to be around--not just for me, but for anyone who greeted her after a long absence only to be harangued about wearing horizontal stripes. She wouldn't listen to me when I suggested she might try more friendliness and fewer insults or complaining, and I think it's just a pattern she has been in so long, she can't relate to people any other way.

    The Christmas after Esme died she got really upset with me for taking a road trip to Death Valley over the long weekend. I told her we just wanted to get away, and she asked me to think about her for a change instead of my own disappointments, because she'd had her heart set on hosting a Christmas party and now her Christmas wasn't turning out the way she expected.

    We're 20 months, 5 miles, and a whole attitude apart.

    I just jumped on here this morning with my own stuff, and didn't have a chance to say Congratulations Jenny for your extraordinary accomplishment. You look fantastic!

    Lydia, I am so sorry about your sister... I know how it feels to be so physically close to a sibling, yet SO far away in attitude, etc. (I lived just across the hall from my brother when he told me he didn't care if I miscarried while I was pregnant with Audrianna)

    First, Jenny, you look fantastic! What an acomplishment!


    Lydia, I can't imagine what it would feel like to hear your sister say such horrible things. No matter what her motivations, its downright mean.




    And the nails... gross. But I must confess that in college I once dated a guys who stoped cutting his toenails just to see how long they would get. He had to wear sandals all the time. In the winter. In Bavaria. He was super-cool. But he did play guitar, which trumps a lot when you're 18.
