Not at all...you're a sweetie for thinking of her!!!!


Years ago, my Dad was *****ing about all the remotes they had. I sent him a Logitech remote, no occasion, just cause! He still talks about it and how much fun it was to get a package for no reason

It's just hair. Their hair at that because I only shed when I wash mine, and I always clean out the screen afterwards. So I'm the only one who can bring herself to clean up their hair. And their gunky product (seriously, what the heck is that stuff?).
Is saying, "Can you please clean out the f***ing screen after you shower?" not an option?

---------------------------------

So my brain fart didn't result in disaster--the cut look pretty good curly. It's about 1-2 inches past my shoulders. My hair is on the thin side so shorter really is better for me, volume-wise.

Saria, I'd buy my own damn screen and take it in and out of the shower each time I showered. If their screen gets nasty enough they'll have to do it themselves.

I don't even want to think about what could be in that grossness that you're touching.

I'm so sad tonight. I found out that my BIL was let go. He was the music minister at our church. My SIL has attended there since college, and BIL worked there for 14 years. They're devastated. Their kids are in tears; they're feeling so rejected. Apparently, BIL had no inkling this was coming. Supposedly, our pastor wants to go in a different direction with the music, whatever the heck that means.

Needless to say, we won't be attending that church anymore. Poor Danae is sad, too. She has a lot of friends there and to be honest, I don't see a lot of those people choosing to stay in our lives if we move on. That's just the way the cookie crumbles; most people are situational friends.

Wow, nynaeve. That is horrible. Being a church, you would think there could have been a better way to handle it.

It is my screen. I bought it so I could wash my hair. But all that hair I pulled out of the drain was from before I moved in, so I kept it for them to use. And it's obvious they can see that it keeps their drain clear, they just can't bring themselves to clean it out. Why is that so hard?

That's so sad, nynaeve! Like ruralcurls said, there had to have been a better way for them to handle it.

I know leaving a church is difficult, too - I hope you can find somewhere else that you're happy, should you choose to look for a different church after this one!

Boys don't like to touch their own "gunky product."

Someone else's nasty in a drain screen makes me want to hurl. We've had company (who shall remain anonymous) that left the screen in a disgusting state along with the shower. I have no idea how two people could get a shower/screen so filthy in that short a time.

*shivers* Ugh. UGH!!!

Yeah, it was poorly done. The one good thing is that they gave him a month's severance pay, but overall, it's not cool. When someone has given 14 years of not just his life but his families' life, I think he deserved better. Ugh, their poor kids. I feel the worst for them, I think. They've literally grown up in that church; BIL started working their when my oldest niece was a baby. Just to be cast aside and cut off from all their friends...Ugh. Heartbreaking. Those poor kids.

I just grab a piece of paper and stick it in there. Whatever is in the screen pretty much clings to it. Then I wash my hands and that's that. It's not the most pleasant task, but it barely takes a minute to do.
I think because many of us women are used to detangling our hair and dealing with clumps it's just not that big a deal. Guys like to think that they don't shed or that their shedding isn't significant, even though that's obviously not true.

That's sad. It's odd that the pastor couldn't just discuss musical changes with your BIL. I wonder if he's trying to sneak in a friend or family member to the post.

I hope you find a new congregation that you like.

Oh my word! That's so gross/hilarious.

Even Mr. Spring laughed then said "Let's see just how gross we can get!" and he's the King of saying gross things.

I think my physical therapist is trying to kill me. (not really, but I sure hurt after my appointments) I started seeing someone different this week and although she's very tiny, she's very MIGHTY. It also seems they keep finding things wrong with me.

On a positive note I'm definitely not clenching my teeth as much as I once was.

Lard help me get through this and hopefully come out better on the other end.
