My parents disciplined me and yes I feared them if I knew what I was doing was wrong. What you saw was only part of the story and you don't and likely will ever know what the full story was. However your well written plea that parents think about what they are doing and saying does make sense. It generally helps to try to find out why something occurred and when you make a mistake own up to it and apologize. My own parents apologized when I was punished for something they were mistaken about.

@leeleea believe it or not there is a thing called restless leg syndrome I have known of people diagnosed with it and one of the things they treat it with is quinine <sp?>

ask your doctor about restless leg syndrome. Though I know my dad was the same way.
@aking005 It is really not so much about that but the lack of consideration for his feelings about those things. For instance My father had told my mother he would not live past is forty third birthday and he died at age 42. this was a bit of family history I had shared with my previous husband. For some reason as he was approaching his 43rd birthday he started saying the same type thing to me. I asked him to stop because it brought back all the sadness surrounding my father's death (we had 13 deaths to deal with that year in family and friends) but he would not stop and then he survived his 43rd birthday about that time I stopped caring if he lived or dies because he had put me in such emotional torment.

@emu211 you might consider that what 2 people see as a waste of money may be two different things. For instance investing in penny stocks could be considered either an investment or a waste of money depending on how good or bad you are in choosing the stocks. Buying a self help book could seem an investment but if you don't use it it becomes a waste of money.
I have to agree the wit the accepting a no bit on sex. I had a time in my past marriage where i just didn't feel like having sex I very truthfully had a headache and my ex pressured me about it even quoting the bible "women shall submit themselves to their husbands" So he ended up getting his sex but I ended up feeling raped.
@Deni You are quite right. I have been married previously and When I finally ended the marriage I had reached a stage where I just did not care anymore for various reason which I won't go into. My current husband I felt I knew way better than I had gotten to know my previous one even though we only met after we discussed marriage. I got to know my current husband over the internet and we spent hours chatting. I can very truthfully say I did not fall in love with him for his looks even though I have been told by some co-worker that he looked like a fox in the first picture I had of him. There was a period of time where he seemed to be possibly having some jealousy issues and we talked it over and I got him to understand that what relationships I have with others really has little affect on how I feel about him. We have now been married almost 4 years and I basically gave up the country of my birth to be with him though not citizenship in that country.
@Eric Pearce Just curious who is keeping track of the days missed? is it an honor system or do you each have a witness? and what happens if you tie?

good luck with it. At least you hopefully don't have someone watching you and making fun of your style. I had that happen to me once and I ended up stopping as I wasn't going to be an object of ridicule so exercise in peace alone.
Andi whatever it is that you are going through that causes Dan to feel you need a love storm know that you have the strength and fortitude to get through it. You also have the good wishes and good thoughts from lots of people who don't know you beyond the fact Dan says you need to feel loved.
6 months, 1 week ago on A Love Storm for… Andie
When My oldest boy was in third or fourth grade we had a visit from an aunt and uncle of mine who I had not seen for many years. My Aunt went out of the house to have a cigarette and I late walked out to speak with her only to find my son lecturing her on the dangers of smoking.Men my youngest was 18 or so (yeah not a kid anymore) My former father-in-law started going on about the "gay-agenda" (note he is a very avid christian with anti gay beliefs). My son looked him right in the eyes and said calmly "I think it is time for you to leave." As far as I know my sons are not gay but if they ever tell me otherwise they know I will accept it calmly. I have to admit he made me proud of him that day and it meant I had taught him correctly.

Dan you are the only one who can decide what is right for you at any given time. However be careful of doing things because it is "right for Noah." That places a large burden on Noah if he should become aware of it. Say he read the previous blog post as I just did. Suppose now he feels he has ruined your chance at happiness and has caused hurt to Sarah. I am not saying you are right or wrong in what you did but you need to take responsibility of your actions and that includes the fact that what you chose to do is what you feel is right for you within your relationship with Noah and the others involved.As for the relationship with Sarah I am a firm believer in what is meant to be will be. It could be the reason you guys were having bad times was because of the fear factor. It doesn't matter how happy or healthy a relationship is there will always be occasional fears that will pop up. sometimes you can shake it off others it will start to eat at you and your relationship. When Sarah said the one thing she would change about you was your being Bi I think that showed an area of fear and uncertainty. Frankly I think I would have been more worried about you being a blogger and living in a glass house situation. In your case you started getting comments of will you change the name of your blog if you get married etc and that again adds to the uncertainty. Which also would tend to add stress to your relationship.and while yes I expect we did ask how Chappy was I suspect we didn't want a long story about what is happening but rather did the prayers help is he improving

depends on who is looking I expect. I am suffering from Arthritis but I know how to do my job and the one job I have while it isn't enough to help support my husband and myself very well it is better than having none at all. I feel I am a good and caring person for the most part but my body seems to be saying you can't do what you want to or what you used to.

Another way of looking at things is if you are happy where you are don't regret the things that brought you there. I divorced my sons's father but I do not regret the relationship as without it I would not have had my boys nor is it likely I would have married the person I am now with. I met him through things that happened due to my boys.

Heh My husband wore shorts/manpris at out wedding basically shorts that fell below the knee.
My husband wears shorts about that length or a bit shorter but he wouldn't wear them riding a bike because if you were to have an accident you would lose a whole lot of skin at best if not do other serious damage.

@MichelleVail my cousin told my uncle that about his mom when we were much younger.
Ah did think of one thing my middle boy was in the hospital when he was about nine months old and we were visiting him when my older boy (not quite 3) pointed to the small white box in the ladies room and asked "what's that?" My reply was "that's a necessaries box." That satisfied him and a woman that was also in the multi stalled room told me "that's the best explanation for that box I've ever heard"
@SusieLee Don't worry likely she will grow out of it. I remember I used to suck on my big toe but stopped when I got to around school age. sooner or later it becomes too hard to do.
