My SIL took over hosting duties this year for her in-laws' St Patrick's dinner. The guest list has gone from about 100 down to 30 (which is still a little much for me).

We are invited every year, but always decline. This year, my MIL asked us to go because it will be her first social event since my FIL died and she wanted our support.

Ry has a fever of 101.1 today. I'm sorry my son doesn't feel well, but kinda glad that I have an excuse to stay home. My husband and E are going and promised to bring me home some corned beef.

I just saw on Facebook that Jasper's girlfriend went to Colorado with him this weekend. This was a trip for school that has been booked since last fall. I'm sitting at the airport waiting to leave for Vegas and am trying not to cry. And failing. Damnit I was doing better! But was afraid of getting blindsided by something like this.

Unfriend him so you don't see this stuff til you are tougher.

Vegas is fun. Distract yourself.

Go ahead and cry for a couple of minutes. Then change your settings on FB so that you don't see his posts. Make a resolution to talk to a stranger or do something that you always wanted to, but never did, while you are in Vegas.

I hope you take this with all of the love and support that's intended...

Ahem:

Remove him/her from your feed. Hide and block them so that you *can't* see this stuff. Maybe, a decade or so down the road you can re-friend him/her, but for now, you don't need to keep having salt rubbed into the wound.

Furthermore, Toj, you had a very very very difficult time reading and comprehending a dear Abby or dear Amy letter where the guy said his gf expects him to do everything around the house, while she does nothing and couldn't get it through you thick skull that the fact that he didn't want to do everything around the house, while his gf did nothing, didn't somehow mean he did nothing and she did everything.
I highly doubt someone who is ^^^^^ that f'ing retarded is equipped with the tools necessary to have discussions about student counsel, much less national politics.
:D
She's not trying to distance herself. She doesn't seem interested to respond to your rant. My take. Sure sounds like a rant. Accusing, veering off subject from gays to the military, etc.

Free country and all that.

I guess if you spout it you think it means you're on subject.

Awww, poor puppy! I like her dad's take on it:
Meredith's father Joe felt helpless for his family during the ordeal.

Oh, that is my plan: to block him from my news feed. But I can't do it on my phone and don't have enough time during layover to get on the computer so I'll do it tonight.

Thanks guys. I chatted on the phone with A for a few minutes after I first saw Facebook and that calmed me down some. About to take off from Charlotte and by the time I get to Vegas, I'll be determined to have a good time.

Now if the guy next to me would just stop coughing.....

Whew, jmw.

So... I'm just asking... it it just that the FB app doesn't let you change that specific setting via iphone? I haven't hunted around FB much on my ipad at all.

Hey, folks with iphones and ipads (and I assume, other smart phones that can use apps?), I don't remember whether I mentioned this:

appsgonefree

I downloaded this app per the recommendation of a couple of geek coworkers and I am finding the variety of apps (each day) to be really good. Games for toddlers, young kids, older kids, adults, tools to help you manage various aspects of life, apps to help you scrap book or alter photos, etc. Very fun. And once ou download the app, it's free for life, so you can delete it to save space on your device, then re-download it later.(I plan to make a list of the apps I delete, b/c I have been downloading games for Nick's kids, to be used ONLY IN AN EMERGENCY, so I don't want to keep them on there all the time.)

Anyway, it's just very cool. And once I downloaded that app, I went back as far as the calendar in the app would let me (about 2 weeks?) and I was able to download quite a few apps from previous days (if an app's free offer is expired, it's very obvious).
