  1. I know this isn't a thread about the Nauglers, but reading the mention of their name has reminded me of a new blog I saw on FB. http://www.blessedlittleblog.com
  2. https://www.amazon.com/b?rh=i%3Atoys-and-games%2Cn%3A12693418011%2Cn%3A12693418011&ie=UTF8&node=12693418011 There are quite a few strategy games that are part of Amazon's Deal of the Day today. We have Ticket to Ride: Europe, are there other tried and true games that the Hive recommends? Thank you :)
  3. DH is self employed - and employs 25 other people. He gets no paid vacation or sick time. Ever. If he doesn't work, there is no one who can cover or fill in for him. He can take time off whenever he chooses, but it means making sure we can cover all our business bills and expenses as well as our employee payroll and their paid vacation/sick.
  4. Shark Pit - food truck in Lahaina. The food was amazing!
  5. From what I read, Nicole posted the videos yesterday to *another* FB account called Momm A Nicole. Apparently it is an account that she frequently deactivates and activates to post her "proof" against the County Sheriff. This one was posted in supposed defense for why "Homestead Hubby" is not working. If you listen, several times she says she hopes that his leaving to confront the officers doesn't result in the loss of his job. The nut job supporters view it as targeting of the family by the sheriff. Interestingly, the FB profile and comments disappeared when some of her more staunch supporters questioned why on earth they would behave so irrationally. The videos currently posted were copied and uploaded by someone who must have seen them when they were briefly available yesterday. The more I see of the Nauglers and their behavior, the more I hope those children will never again be subjected to that insanity.
  6. I agree with you. I'm sorry I was unclear. I was referring to what he must have said to her to make her feel so shamed, not the actual hair cutting itself. I imagine the hair cutting was the physical punishment, but that the emotional punishment was much more severe.
  7. From this article: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/izabel-laxamana-tacoma-teen-kills-herself-days-after-shaming-video-posted-online-of-father-cutting-her-hair-10298673.html "Ms Cool, the police spokeswoman, said she believed Izabel had killed herself because she believed things she had done in her past had shamed her family. “This was her way of apologising to everyone,†she said." Smh. 😔 Poor, poor girl. She was so shamed by her father that she felt death would be the most appropriate apology. Awful.
  8. I'm just going to place this here: https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-NASTY-Little-Homestead/790726694356144 Some of the screen shots are ... Disturbing.
  9. Yes. Once. My roommate set me up with a friend of hers who had expressed a desire to go on a date with me. She neglected to mention that he was a bounty hunter. The date was ... Interesting.
  10. From the day I met my husband - 13 years and five children later. I would relive it all and not change a thing. Just to experience it all again. Life is too blasted short.
  11. Absolutely nothing wrong with a kind gesture. DH is a surgeon, and is always so touched (as am I) when his patients express appreciation. I try to do the same for all of my doctors as well (after baby births, surgeries, emergency care, etc). Go for it!
  12. Oops. Tried to like a post and wound up with a quoted post. Dang phone.
  13. Bingo. I was too stunned to cry when DH first told me. There is a pretty signifcant, negative history with his mom that caused us to, out of necessity, limit all contact with his family (they all live in the same town) about three years ago. As a result, he deals with everything pertaining to his family, so he is trying to work up his courage to tell them it won't work out. My DH is the kindest, most thoughtful man I've ever met and he has a hard time saying 'no' to anyone. He would rather just be put out. Thank you PrincessMommy. I'm sorry I've derailed your thread. The introvert in me was begging to be 'heard' on this, so I chimed in. I apologize and I sincerely hope that your weekend goes well. Agree. My DH is still working on his boundary issues - especially when it comes to his family. He was raised to be the self-sacrificial (is that even a word?), peace maker and it has been a long 12 years of helping him to establish healthier relationships. He has assured me that he will handle it. In the meantime, it will stress us both. DH blocked out his schedule so we could take a 10 day vacation after everyone leaves. He is very aware how draining it is to be around his mother :lol: I wish it were that easy. If it were my family ... Thank you everyone for the encouragement and making me feel like I'm not being unreasonable. I have a feeling saying 'no' will have long term repercussions, but ultimately, I can't fix crazy. I'll have to start a new thread in a few weeks to let everyone know how it went :crying: Back to lurking for me ... and back to the OP ... Thank you again, Brittany
