feel dumb for asking but....

What are all these little acronyms, I guess they are. Like I know what the ones for parents, in-laws, and fiance are but what is DH and ETA? I am sure there are more I don't know but these are the only ones I can think of right now. Thanks!!

    DH= Dear Husband
    ETA= Edited To Add 

    I always read ETA as "estimated time of arrival", but I know that is not what it means here.

    <div>I thought for a long time they meant "Not event relevant" or "Not worth reading." HAHA I think I used them that way a few times too. </div>
