Ugh. I know that feeling. Like a low-grade-gonna-puke feeling that lasts all frickin' day. For days.
Yep. That's it.

I keep trying to tell myself that I've already been through the hardest part and that this news doesn't actually change anything... both true statements, but I still feel sick thinking about him being with someone else.

I've been waiting for the other shoe to drop and it's a whole shoe rack. I seriously think I feel worse today than I did the first day he was gone.

So I listened to a "War of the Roses" radio segment(wife thinks husband is cheating, they call and offer him free roses to send to whoever, then see if he sends to wife or someone else).

Wife said it would not be that bad if hsuband was cheating. She's really not in love with him anymore and really wants to end it. She's been not having sex with him for months. They ask, why she does not just tell him its over. She says that would make her the bad guy. SO he sends the flowers to someone else. Busted. But she's still nto happy, cause now she found out who it is. She feels that woman is ugle. So now she feels like she'll be a laughingstock because of who the husband is cheating with.

So we ended up actually watching the Super Bowl last night. Dickie didn't want to have to tell people at work that no, he didn't see that ad.

And while there was a break in the Puppy Bowl, the girls wandered in just in time for the end of Beyonce's halftime show. Lulu took one look at her and said "I soooo love her outfit." and proceeded to watch the rest of the booty shaking show.

<sigh> I really feel like I'm in for it in about 8 years...

I know there are people this screwed up but it still makes me say, "Huh?"

You poor thing. I feel for you. Beyonce did look good, though, but like you I would not want my daughter in that outfit. Until she was 40.

I've never understood the whole "friends" thing after a long relationship. I mean, the sentiment is nice, but that feeling in the pit of your stomach with every interaction isn't worth it. I've only had one other long relationship besides J, I think it was...almost 7 years long, and he wanted to remain friends. I'm like, look, I don't hate you, and I'll say 'hi' if I run in to you, I just don't want to know what's going on with you.

Yes, she did.

And I really liked that it was all ladies in the band. We tried to distract them from the booty shaking by pointing that out, even if it was pointing to tiny little people in the background.

In the past, I never thought I could do it myself but I've known people who can and do. I want(ed) to try... and I could do if he would just become a monk.

And all black, too, from what I could tell. Guess she isn't one for diversity. I found that to be rather offensive. And she set the woman's movement back 30 years with that performance, way to encourage girls to be sexual objects.

And loved the "anti-gun" theme with the performances by the Sandy Hook children and Jennifer Hudson.

And the commercials were CRAP!

Worst. Superbowl. Ever.

I've remained friends with people I dated, but there's usually a month or two period or more (depending upon the relationship) of adjustment where you just don't see or talk to each other. Not a friendship where you see each other all the time, though.

I can honestly say I did not notice whether or not "everyone was black". I never heard you complain about an all white band.

One thing, though -- Beyonce is beautiful.

As for the "anti-gun" comment -- huh? Are you for real? Where do you get it was anti-gun. You are so strange. What's the problem for you with Jennifer Hudson? Is it b/c she's black, too?

The commercials weren't all that good and to get teary-eyed about a beer commercial made me aggravated with myself.

The game was fun. There were enough mistakes on both sides to make it an interesting game.

Now YOU can't be for real. You didn't find it the least bit coincidental that both performers were indirect victims of gun crimes? That was no accident.

There will be drama, fo sho. Already not expecting SIL's dad to show. J will walk her down the aisle. My MIL was a hot mess for our ceremony, and that her kid then was 32--I know her "baby" will be worse.
My SIL is terrible at decision making; I don't think she has any clue that she's going to have to spearhead wedding plans. I definitely expect drama in that department.
I will so be staying tuned in...

Nice intelligent, well thought out, inarguable rebuttal. You've really explained your case well.

Given the horrific things that the Sandy Hook school kids have been through, I'm not surprised someone wanted to do something nice for them and have them sing at the Super Bowl.

Given Jennifer Hudson's TALENT, I'm not surprised they picked her.

Given how many NFL players have guns (and how some of them used them on others and themselves), I'm not thinking the NFL is anti-gun nor do I believe they want into that fight.

I cannot comment on the color of everyone's skin; we tuned in at the almost-end. But with the color of my kids' skin, that would not have bothered me.

But I will agree with you about sexual objects angle. <sigh>

There are a lot of people with talent, why do you think they chose her to perform alongside the Sandy Hook kids? And given the fact the NFL has seen their own share of gun violence, you really think it was a mere coincidence? Please don't be so dense.

I had one years-long boyfriend before I was with my husband. We had our wedding date picked out and all (though we were still young and it was too far in advance to put deposits on anything). he is a good guy, we were just not right for each other. I still think he's a little crazy and he still thinks that my husband either a) has his life or b) would be his best friend if I would just let them meet.

We can talk now without me feeling any wistfulness or regret. It took years, though.
