I have lived my life, always being responsible for everything and criticized when I don't handle perfectly. Just once, I would like someone to say to someone, while don't you help me. I'm so tired of being pushed into this role. So much of my life has been terrible, but does anyone step up to DH and take part of it off my shoulders.

I know each generation complains about the generations that follow. I have a hard time with body mutilation. If you had a big scar on your neck, most people would be self-conscienious, yet people cover their necks with hideous tattooes. If your ear lobe was torn leavng a big hole, you would feel scarred and yet people put big stretchers in their ear lobes to make big lasting holes.

I'm not a fuddy duddy, really I'm not.

I really hate it when I see in your face waste. When I was visiting an inlaw's home, dinner was over and I went to help her put away the food and she said they don't save left over food. It made me sad to see enough quality food go to the garbage to feed my daughter's family of 9. Since they were without income, my daughter's family had been living on beans and top ramin noodles. Some people just don't get it.

Companies that spend the money to put out hard cover catalogs and don't carry the product. We went to their store wanting to see a canoe that is $5oo and you're suppose to order it sight unseen. Not for $500, I don't.

Our dependence on something that can be harmful, as oil. We're all so angry over the oil spill, yet we need to pull up to have our tanks refilled.

Over and over again, the things we buy, that are manufactured, spewing toxins.

We're our own worst enemies.

Bleach used to come in gallon jug, 128 oz. for $1. Now, you get 86 oz. for $2. Ice cream used to be a 1/2 gallon, now it's 1qt. 2 cups and up to $5.

We all should be losing weight.

We have a situation in Arizon that has to deal with heat. It dries the moisture out of things, cracks them and reduces them in size. It does the same thing to people, but doesn't reduce them. You can tell the area a woman lives by her skin, just look at the lovelies from England.

Floridagirl, I've always hated being on a "team." I'm on one now at work for a very important project, and yes, I'm doing all of the work. In some ways, it's a control and a perfectionism issue. My name is going to be on it, so I want final say in how it looks. In other ways, I just got stuck with someone who is too lazy to do the work.

Gale, I don't know what to tell you. Right now your body is playing tricks on you and don't give in.Bang your head on the wall a few times. It will hurt enough you'll forget about the weight for a while. I think I need to take my own advice, because my scale isn't moving either. That's not true, it moved during the earthquake.--PJ

I'm so frustrated, I want to cry! After a week of exercising more, and eating less, I not only didn't lose weight, but I gained 3 pounds! I hate this inconsistency in weight loss. I haven't lost anything since last September. Granted, I've only tried to maintain, and I have, so that's good. I'm not giving up, but I'm incredibly frustrated!

Yesterday, learned on Dr. Oz, that in a discussion, men want the point, no description. So, instead of saying, "Would you please pick-up some milk on the way home?" Say, "Man pick-up milk, come home."

Instead of saying, "Would you like to make love?"
Just say, "F**k!" Instead of saying, I need to go to the bathroom", say, "Me S**t!"

Now, see how simple that is?--PJ

Okay this is a good place to let it all out---Venting 101!
I belong to a book club and all the other women live in a gated community of really, really expensive houses. They are not poor by any means. They do not work but only one is retired from a job. I do not think that any of them has to worry about money. I am not nearly as well off as these ladies, but I am not poor either. The point is one of the ladies just sent an e-mail to the group about the place we had our last two meetings. She said we should find another place to have our meetings. One that did not charge so much for a "little lettuce" and a cup of tea. My lunch last week was $12.00. Man I am so angry I could write her a note that would burn her eyes. The place is a bed and breakfast in a very old house and the food is excellent. It is fresh and good! I am up to here with rich people complaining about lunch prices when they can obviously afford it. This woman went to school in Switzerland, for God's sake, so she has always had money. I have never had money and she wants us to go to Panera Bread or Borders where we can get a bagel for $2.00. I would like to smash her in the face with a rotten banana! Thank you for letting me vent!

Happiness is a day at the beach.

I hate the way grocery stores ring up your items. You can't tell if you've been overcharged or not. Today, my change didn't come through the coin machine. Had I not said something, the store would have kept my change and everyone else's.

I have 2 things, I've always been very protective of, my money and my kids if they were in the right.--PJ

Oh, I so need this thread right now. First of all, I searched for 10 minutes to find the venting thread and can't find it to start venting!

Ok I get the go green, eco friendly stuff but has anyome tried to open one of the new aquafina "eco-fina" bottles that are made with 50% less plastic. Prepare to get wet trying to open this bottle. The plastic is so thin and lid on so tight, that the bottle bends and twists and water leaks out the top. AND once finally open with 1/3 of the water all over you, the counter and floor, when you grab it to take a drink, the water comes gushing out the top as you crush it with your hands from lack of plastic in the walls. Grrrr.

I just sent them an email asking if their wonderful packaging engineers had used this new eco invention before making the consumer pay for it.

Everything happens for a reason!

Good for you. That's the goal of all parents, to know they have a child that can make it on their own. They don't need to own the world, but be able to feed themselves. We had one son, we put his inheritance into a trust, because he was so irresponsible, so we knew he'd have food when he got old. Instead, he pushed himself into a final heartche, because we wouldn't give him the money early.--PJ

Hi, I'm 29 and the best thing my parents ever did for me was kick me out. Seriously! I got a great job making 60k a year, took college classes and found myself so to speak. I had to work extremely hard and push myself every day to make income, keep a roof over my head and learn to balance car payments and grocery bills. Now I'm married for six years, have a handsome son, own my own home and I'm a stay at home mom. I would never be where I am if I hadn't been told I could be anything as long as I did it on my own.

Gale, he needs some tough love. What would happen if you became ill and did not bring in an income or worse yet, died? What would your son do? I knew a young man once that his folks were paying his bills. He told me that as long as they kept paying, why should he. We had 2 out of 3 kids, that were always needing to be bailed out. Finally, we said no more. Guess what? The one that's still living, is doing well. It's hard. but tell him to straigthen up or goin the military. It sounds mean, but it's for his own good.--PJ

I have two grown children. I had to learn a lesson the hard, hard way. There is no way that you can make an older child do anything. If they have a mindset that they don't like school or working and they can munch on their parents, they will do it. No force tactics work. Believe me.

"I lift up my eyes to the hills-where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of Heaven and Earth."
