Jan 14th 2012 9:00PM That's so funny - I was so judging on your wife until I got to the very last line of the article and saw that it was a 50 mile detour.... Then it (and she) made much more sense... I hope you gave her massive props for letting you go so far out of the way for that.
Nov 19th 2011 9:38AM I stayed in hostels and hostel/hotel hybrids (in countries that didn't have hostels) throughout the Middle East.
Spent less (other than initial airfare) than my living expenses back in the States - and that includes board, food, ground transport and incidentals - cost me about 1k a month to live abroad. Since I sublet my US apt, It worked out well.
I love hanging out in a hostel kitchen, cooking whatever local food I've picked up in the shops and socializing with the other denizens - or just cooking quietly and soaking in the comfortable atmosphere. Just keep your belongings secured and keep tempting and expensive food in bags so it can't be seen and tempt others.
Stayed in single sex rooms, stayed in co-ed rooms - you change in the bathroom anyway (or put your skivvies on under the covers first) so no harm there.
Good memories - US hostels too.
Dec 24th 2010 1:00AM I'm so sorry that just happened to you, and on Christmas Eve, no less. I hope your family's presence makes you feel loved and supported at this time.
I know it's a cliche, but - 'you are better off without him!'
Dec 24th 2010 12:54AM Really excellent post, and I agree with everything you said, including your conclusion.
I don't think we have to break up b/c of infidelity, because we don't have ESP. We can break up (of course after trying to reach out) because of the distance that prededes or follows infidelity, even if we don't know about the infidelity that caused it.

"My comment about cr&p has to do with AUTHENTICITY of this so-called unemployed woman. This stuff you're reading was churned out by a "paid professional writer" and NOT some poor unemployed person."
If you would read the update, you would see that she got work after writing this article - doing freelance writing.
Nov 27th 2010 5:52PM Your advice is good (focus on skills) - but minus the judgment. You didn't read Mollee's resume and you have not walked in her shoes. Give the helpful hint next time without the criticism and judgment.
Nov 18th 2010 11:58AM I am a strong tea-partier (believe in limited government, fiscal responsibility and free-markets). I am on many Tea-Party mailing lists. There is nothing out from any organization there saying 'vote Bristol'.
What's more, I haven't voted for DWTS since the show began, though I do watch it occasionally.
Gawd - poor kid. She can't even try hard and succeed a bit without withering criticism.
P.S. Jennifer Grey will win, and then maybe people will leave the poor kid alone and give her her props for trying hard.
Nov 1st 2010 6:24PM What you are saying sounds extreme, but I actually agree with you. I had the same response. The older son sounded a little over the top in a concerning sort of way. This may not be something that the mother can change, but at least it puts things into perspective. She may be viewing her oldest with rose-colored glasses, not seeing that there is a problem there.
Nov 1st 2010 6:20PM I hope when your grandchildren are older, you can re-establish a relationship with them. I am so sorry for your painful situation - it sounds terrible. A

FYI - it was not Dr Spock's son that committed suicide. It was his grandson, who had suffered from schizophrenia.
