@MoxyCrimeFighter A girl needs many cardigans and we aren't all on a J. Crew marino-variety budget. I need to hide my arms (and anger) and brave air conditioned office buildings.
Sooo, New York & Co cardigans are bad? Shit...
@Scandyhoovian My co-worker and I are fond of saying "I noped the eff out of there" whenever possible.
@Shara I don't think it counts as a push present. I have decided a push present is something you receive after you tell your partner "You better get me X because I am a whiney taker and I need to be acknowledged in a showy way that I can later wave under people's noses."
@Daisy Razor Well, my husband gave me a nice, simple necklace with my daughter's birthstone on it the day after she was born. I wear it on her birthday. I had no idea he was going to give me anything. Is this a "push present?" Please tell me it's not. I cannot be a woman who received a "push present." Just cannot.
@TheclaAndTheSeals I asked a friend I was IN LOVE with and he said yes. Then came back the next week and told me he changed his mind because he wanted to go with someone he liked. Ouch.
Then she wouldn't go with him and he asked me. I said yes because I had no pride. We had an ok time.
@E I'm on it. I have the Channel 4 site up as we speak. It looks like I'll be "in meetings" this afternoon.
@E HOW DID I NOT KNOW ABOUT REGENCY HOUSE PARTY?!? Sorry for the yells, but I spent my formative years reading those stupid "The Governess and the Rouge" Regency romance paperbacks and have always had so, so many questions!
@SarahP That's what I was thinking. His perceived "rejection" of his son on top of the fact that she feels like she is the only one raising their own children has to be rage inducing.
@katiemcgillicuddy Don't let the matter-of-factness get you down. Maybe you're one of the fabled couples that won't ebb and flow, but odds are you will be. And that's ok. That doesn't mean you love each other any less. Illness, job stress, kids - all sorts of things will come into your life and affect your sex drive. Speaking from experience, we're coming out of an ebb caused by 4 years of pregnancies and nursing and the resulting exhaustion, along with major job changes totally upsetting the household. And on the other side of that ebb the flow is good. Great, even. Different than before. More honest and loving because we've been through some rough stuff together. I hope this makes sense to anyone not living inside my brain. :)
