    [QUOTE]Angel, I've just been popping tons of ibuprofen since 4 am.  I used to start taking some a day or two before my periods when I was on the pill but of course I knew when that would be. I was relying too much on my period tracker app; it was saying I'm due to start at the end of the week.

    I generally get mild cramps a day or two ahead of time, so I know when it's coming. I got them starting on Sunday or Monday so I knew it was on it's way and sure enough, it arrived an hour ago. Joy.

    I heard somewhere that they had their house declared to be a church so they don't have to pay taxes on it. I don't know if that is true or not, but if so that is wicked sneaky.

    <div>I always use to know when my period was coming because I'd get a twinge of back pain the day before, so I'd start my advil popping then. It became much more regular after a while, but in case I forgot that back pain kind of helped haha.</div>

    I feel like we've talked about this before, but I went to college with a Soren. We called him Buddah though.

  • Angel - I have a little bump, but mostly I just look like I'm fat and can't suck it in anymore.  I've only gained 3 lbs (which is absolutely fine for this point) it's just all shifted around.

    <div>It's true. I can't even stomach pretending to have respect for them because of the way they treat their daughters. </div>
  • But IS their house a church?  I mean, if it meets the requirements (I assume it requires being used for ministration to so many people or something), I have no issue with that.

    My MIL named DH  John David.

    Then named BIL  David John

    Yeah, I often wonder about her.  My aunt named her daughter after her and the son after her husband.  Very confusing.

    My other aunt HATES juniors.   Refused to name any of her 3 sons her husband's name. She has only 5 grandsons and everyone of them is a junior.  Not only that she has a son Micheal and a SIL named Michael.   Not one of them is called by their middle name.      It's so confusing.


    *** DH name has been changed.






    What differentiates an average host and a great host is anticipating unexpressed needs and wants of their guests.  Just because the want/need is not expressed, doesn't mean it wouldn't be appreciated. 
  • Naming the spawn was the second hardest part of spawning. We went through like eleven billion names before deciding on a Junior.

  • My mom's sister (I don't refer to her as my "aunt" lol) and her ex-H were "M & M" so of course all 6 or 7 of their kids' names started with M. Because it's cute? I don't get it. One of the craziest families I have ever known of.

  • I don't have a ton of first names I like for girls. For boys, though I like first names that sound like last names. Harrison, Truman, things like that. Harrison is my #1 boy name.
  • Actually - this name discussion has prompted me to add a few to my lists. 
  • Thanks Fish. :) I quite like them all as well. People always hear them and go "Hmm well those are different..." but I like them that way. 

    Sorry Petal! I think my hatred for Gilmore Girls is why I hate that nickname, lol. 

    MK-- Lol why the nickname Buddah?

    How DO they treat their daughters? I actually don't know anything about them besides the fact that they have a trillion kids.

    I've never watched the show so I can't be sure, but from what I've read, the "way they treat their daughters" is pretty typical of their religion.  It's not for me, I don't understand it, I would hate it if were me, but that's how things work for them.  I think it's weird, but I would not condemn them for it.  It's not like they're beating them and starving them and using them for slave labor.

  • I love Harrison. Then fell in love with dexter. I still love the name, but I think people would think it was after dexter. I love the names Liam and Henry. But my Liam is a Liam, so that leaves Henry.
