Apr 15th 2011 4:17AM Not a Miley fan but have been a huge Joan Jett fan since I was in high school(early 80's). Miley held her own and did OK but Joan is a legand and just stole the spotlight!! Joan is in her early 50's and looks Amazing. Sounds even better!!!
Apr 11th 2011 2:40AM WOW, bitter much Vicky? It is not a lifestyle that I understand and I will admit that I am too selfish to share my husband. So, from what source did you confirm that this is not working for these women? When there are sooo many children in America that do not even know who their father is because mommy slept around and with the divorce rate greater than 50% it seem you are mighty judgemental. He is there every day and seems to make an effort to spend time with each of his wives and children. You don't see him playing golf on weekends. You may not choose this type of family life but his wives don't sound bitter. But YOU certainly do!!
Apr 11th 2011 2:33AM They were married May 2009 and the baby is due Oct. 2011. That is 18 months. Maybe YOU need to check your facts and do the math before you get so rightous and judgemental.
Feb 25th 2011 3:01AM There is a huge difference between teaching children to have respect for the police and to fear the police. Nothing makes me cringe more than hearing parents tell little Johny or Suzy that the police will take them away from mommy and daddy and lock them up if they don't eat their dinner or if they throw a tantrum in public. That is NOT what the police are about.
However, if a child steals a candy bar or does something that could be considered criminal later then having a police officer join the parents in a talk about unacceptable actions and the consequences is fine. Then it is up to the parents to punish the child in an age appropriate manner. But a very young child should NEVER be threatened with jail. They are just learning right from wrong and developing a moral conscience. Use this as a learning experience for right and wrong, not as a way to get your six year old to quit misbehaving at home. Don't make them fear the people that could one day be needed to protect them.
Feb 25th 2011 2:44AM I have three daughters(mostly grown now). The first one was planned. Then I had secondary infertility(unable to conceive even though one has had a baby without intervention in the past). Finally we had baby #2. Since I was unable to get pregnant without fertility drugs we were done....or so we thought. My second and third daughters are only two years apart. Since I "couldn't" get pregnant again, I didn't even realize that I was until I was almost 12 weeks. I felt like a dumb teenager that I didn't even realize it. Also, it just wasn't a good time for another baby financially. When I called my mom in tears she told me this wasn't an accident, It was a surprise. She said "A surpise is something you didn't know you wanted until you get it and then you can't imagine not having it". How wise she is. My youngest daughter is a joy and at 17 years old now has been a blessing to our family every day. Remember, NO accidents, only surprises!!!!
Feb 10th 2011 6:38PM This past summer, our family of 4 were scheduled to come home from Punta Cana. Flight was cancelled due to mechanical problems. To compensate us, everyone was given food vouchers at the airport unril they could make arrangements. Then we were all loaded onto tour buses and taken to an all-inclusive resort. Free food and aLCOHOL!!! Sadly, the food and rooms were not great. When we arrived home I called the airline(D***a) and they provided each of us with $150 vouchers, to be used by each person or combined for a $600 ticket for one person. As a side note, the original tickets were super-savers and only $100 each way plus taxes and fees. Remember, it doesn't cost a penny to ask!!!
Jan 17th 2011 12:43AM I work 40 hours per week in a Level 1 trauma center, I am going to school for an advanced nursing degree, am married to the most wonderful man in the world and we have 3 children(2 teens and 1 in her 20's). I wear sweats around the house and if I happen to have time to work out. However, I do take the time to wash my face, brush my teeth, comb my hair and yes change into a pair of pants or shorts before I run errands.
I don't try to be a Paris Hilton. However, I do insist that my children take pride in their appearance when they are out in public. I will not allow them to be slovenly. They all work part time jobs in high school and are expected to get a college education. That to me is a productive member of society. Maybe the problem with our society is people like YOU who have lowered the standards for you and your children.
Jan 17th 2011 12:18AM It seems that we have lost track of what this discussion is about. I think "pajama jeans" as these are called are fine if you wash them and keep them in your closet or drawer with your other day wear. Then they are just jeans made of a soft, warm material that you wear AFTER you take off your sleep wear in the morning.
The arguement about being slovenly or lazy seems to stem more from the idea of people lounging, sleeping or cleaning their house in dumpy looking sweat pants and then wearing these out to run errands.
Two totally different arguements. There is absolutely nothing wrong with wearing a pair of slacks that look like jeans but aren't made of denim. People are getting too wrapped up in the name "pajama jeans".
Jan 16th 2011 9:14PM Yes, I am sorry to say you are lazy if you wear sweats to bed and then get up in the morning and just head out the door.
I LOVE wearing sweats around the house but when it is time to run errands, pick up the kids from school, drop off the dry cleaning, etc... then I toss on a pair of jeans or shorts. It just isn't that labor intensive to change out of the pants you slept in. If you can't work up the energy to change your pants then that counts as LAZY!!
Jan 2nd 2011 5:41PM Really Stephanie??? You are ashamed of us??? All people are saying is a freebie weekend in VT. may be a nice idea but how is that helping? We just want to work, pay our bills and take care of our families. I live in Ohio and can't afford transportation to VT. The author of this site is delusional if she thinks this is helping. I clicked on this thinking there would be helpful offers like resume reliews, etc. The free offer of drycleaning is nice BUT because it is in NY doesn't really help the rest of us.
As far as school, I have an advanced education but again, with corporate cutbacks there are more people being layed off, adding to the unemployment problem. You state you have been unemployed x 12 months. I do NOT believe you. You state there are jobs out there. Even if it isn't what people want. If you believe that then you would be working. You also refer to the unemployed in the third person which indicates you are referring to others. Do NOT come on this site and judge those of us that are doing the best we can and then try to pretend you are also unemployed. You just do not get it.
