Half of my family has no clue what anyone else is really talking about and the other half make jokes about deafness. I am exhausted from straining to hear and lip read.

2.) I have two jumbo teddy bears and LOVE them. Their names are Willy and Cody.

3.) I Feel like I Finally found a "home" in alldeaf. I am proud that I am learning ASL and teaching my family and other students in my school even if the other students really don't seem to care.

4.) I have a guest staying at my house and I could wait for them to go to sleep so I could visit with all of you on alldeaf.
:

5.) I have road rage and give people the finger. :madfawk: A sign well understood!

6.) I hate washing dishes, it feels like a never ending torture and wish my kitchen was big enough for a dishwasher, or that I could have a dog that will do all the pre washing. LOL My cat refuses the task. :laugh2:

7.) I learn more from reading my school books than I do from the teachers, and I can't believe that of these students are um.. well actually students.
Re: the dishwasher. As far as I know they still make portable dishwashers that are only 18" wide (I am a assuming you are in the US). I got one of those when I was in an apartment years ago and was very glad I did.

I HATE my job. Every day, I have to forcefully stop myself from just walking out. I have been looking for another job for a very long time with no luck.

I realize I'm lucky to have a job and be able to pay my bills, but it's SO awful!

I confess that despite all the ugly stuff from my husband cheating, and lying I am enjoying being single. Life is better for the kids, and I with him out of our home. When they tell me " Momma I love our home because it is full uf peace", I am delighted.

It is the opposite for me. I haven't been enjoying teaching lately but I love the community there.

I took my first permanent job there about 10 years ago, because I was temping, and I was desperate for steady work with benefits. I have regretted that decision for about eight years now. I have been actively looking, off and on, for almost five years. In that time, I've had ONE interview. Granted, I've been choosy, because I have the job, but it's been wearing on me heavily for a long time now.

I'm thinking of starting to apply at temp agencies again, just to get away from the place. Besides being dysfunctional, they treat most low-level staff--us, mailroom, etc--like shit. There is also no movement or room for advancement for admins. You are pretty much stuck where you get put.

FML.

The only thing that keeps me from being all stabbity is my business that I run on the side.

Yeah. There are, but now I know how to spot them better.

Actually, I hate working for other people, but my business is not profitable yet and it may not be for a few years yet--not that I'm not trying.

you're purifying your body thats why, keep off it and once you're not 'training up' but 'keeping the condition' rather than stress the body and 'conditioning' < cz that means 'changing'.. in simpler words, when youre in a state of keep fit over long periods rather than 'getting fit',,,,the body 'stays' the same and hence you become more tolerant of wines...so for now, while you're into it , lay it off for longer until youre either not training or keeping.....AND eat, AND i dont know what im talking about im making this up as from experience, you NEED water, LOTs of it, wine just vapourise the water in the body, making it drier so damn quick it not funny and thats why that easy-to-get-headaches.....hope it makes sense.....well thats my opioion why so...

thanks Lucas, yes; im not sure either....i THINK it is more likely not, as he did look it up...(but coulda used his brain to see similar).....oh well
sophisticated, is a hard word for me to remember how its spelt , normally im a good speller just this particular word always trips me up. Anyway, it means, complex, high class, not simple, very into details (clothes, food, expensive houses, into 'hidden' gadgets, the most ;modern' most newest , 'most sophisticated car ever made' means newest, and usually most expensive technology used in that 'car'....
when i say sophiscated on people, is like, snobs, they who think they knoew everythingm and sneers scoffs , disrespects no one and parades themselves as 'gods' of society...

sometimes one right a really complex way of saying what's their tastes are like (often pretending to be cool or natural, whenin they are also ideologically driven often they dont know it either, intolerance is another indication of 'sophisticated' people. Sometimes they think normal people are 'dirty', 'unclean' unhealthy' or 'unwise' or 'aimless' or 'rough sewn' when even low income people can actually be cleaner, wiser, healthier (eat from own gardens -if they grow their own ""if if the land is not polluted*), being well-read sometime shows sophisication of people , (more knowledge), and so on

a HTC Sensation is a sophisticated mobile phone compared to cheap mobiles that dont have touch screens

You mispelled the word so bad I couldnt find similar words. Now, I know why you dislike them. There are some sophisticated people on here. One of them like to talk about my life on here like they better than me. Im a very simple guy.

Yeah, know exactly what you mean....it's "your time"...the kids are sleeping and you have the bathroom all to urself!...Shave ur legs, sing...whatever floats ur boat....And on the weekends, maybe some candles and a glass of wine/champagne is really nice and soothing!

Many times, I've actually fallen asleep in the bathtub and woke up freezing to death.

I confess that I want to scream. I would like to hit somebody. That jerk always has an excuse for not fulfilling his responsibility to his kids. He is so darned self centered. Always put himself before our amazing kids. He wonders why they don't want to spend extra time with hi They are tired of constant disappointment from him. I am so tired of his selfishness. My kids deserve better. Thank for letting me vent.

I confess I want to buy hot dogs for the house...which means I'll be having hot dogs for dinner just about every night for the next 10 days. I used to live on hot dogs (for lunch) in my younger days. I've cut back considerably, but once in a great while I'll buy a pack for home.
