Yeah, we like knowing because we care, because we miss our old friends. Nevertheless... Welcome! I hope your fresh start works out for you. :)

I think it would be more accurate to say that what many men thought of as flirtation, many women saw as harrassment, but had no power to speak up about it. This is still true today.

There have been plenty of men who've harrassed me in the name of flirtation and got downright angry if I didn't accept it as such.

I wear an eyemask at night and I don't find it bothersome at all. I wear it because a. any amount of light will wake me up and b. I frequently get nightmares/sleep terrors, and as things go, I open my eyes while I'm asleep and look around and the things around me get translated into nightmare images. But with the eyemask on, no sleep terrors at all since there's nothing to see. It's weird, and I don't know why it works, but it works, so who am I to argue?

Iggy, compromise is a many splendored thing.

I did that. It doesn’t mean a whole lot except to facebook’s servers. It doesn’t affect the functionality of the group in any way.

So happy for you, Curlybat. Good parents are so very important. I'm glad you're taking up the challenge for more children. :)

Curelom, I can completely understand why it's confusing for some people. Heck, it can get confusing for me, too. :)

My suggestion - and it's only a suggestion - is that we do nothing with current posts, and Iggy decides on one location going forward. I have no particular preference on which location that is.

Hey, Iggy, you know what? I sometimes have a hard time keeping up with your stories because you have a thread called “Iggy’s Ramblings” & then you have posts on here too. And there are times I have to go scroll back through parts of the other thread to see if something there clarifies something you mention here at the Cabin. Just an idea, what do you think about taking your posts here & moving them there, chronologically, to make the stories easier for scatterbrains like me to follow? (lol :D)

I don't know how to do that - but sounds like a plan, if Dynany or Laurie or????? could do that or message me with the directions on how to do it, would be ever so grateful.

It isn't something you could do, Iggy. It would have to be someone with admin powers, so either Dyany or I could do it.

But I think this warrants a bit of discussion first so we can see all the pitfalls before we decide on a course of action. :)

Comments that related to Iggy's posts specifically wouldn't be moved over - they're more likely to contain general cabin comments as well. And comments that Iggy posted that related to other cabin posts in addition to her own stuff would be moved over, so that might seem a bit incoherent in either the Cabin or Iggy's Ramblings thread.

Another alternative would be to move Iggy's Ramblings into the Cabin thread so that the two threads are merged. A downside with that is that it might be a bit incoherent in places where it's not absolutely clear that comment a is referring to post b if there are Cabin and Iggy's Ramblings posts mixed together in the timeline.

In other words, there are downsides no matter which way this goes.

A third alternative would be to leave existing posts alone and for Iggy to decide to post those longer stories in one place and one place only, pick a thread, and that's always how it's done in the future.

Discuss! :)

I’m sorry for your loss, Iggy. It sounds like you have some good memories of your brother.

Jana, I’m glad you two are having a wonderful time.

So glad to hear the fires are contained. That is good news indeed.

The husband and I arrived in Spain yesterday. Our first flight from Colombo to Jeddah was 1.5 hour late leaving - it took that long to get the meals aboard the aircraft. We then spent 6 or 7 hours in the Jeddah airport waiting for the next flight, which was 45 minutes late leaving. This one was late because they didn’t have the right seat extender seat belt thingie for *me*, and it took that long to find one. The ones they had on board didn’t fit the seat belts. Oops. Anyway, even though it left 45 minutes late, it managed to arrive in Madrid 1.5 hours late. We then had to take the train from Madrid to Valencia, and the earliest train that had seats was at 8:40pm, so we spent 5 hours in the train station waiting to leave. And I got harrassed by two people in Spanish in the three minutes that Fahim was gone to get us food - we had good seats, and they wanted Fahim’s. All I could manage was “me esposo” as I pointed at the seat, “no entiendo” and... Yeah. That’s it. The one guy looked like he was just going to move Fahim’s backpack himself, he was that pushy. And then they glared at me for the next hour, long after Fahim came back and sat down.

Anyway. We’re in Valencia. We’re in a rented apartment. We bought basic groceries this afternoon. We took a four hour nap, much needed. And we’re recovering from the trip. Yay.

If it affects him in any way - including if it affects ME in a way that could affect how I interact with him or my ability to fulfill my responsibilities - I tell him.  The level of detail in what I share with him is determined by how much impact it has on us.  I don't know if that's sharing-for-bonding or sharing-to-avoid-secrets.
This is pretty much how we do it, too. I don't know the details of every single conversation the hubs has, and I don't care. Him, likewise. But if it impacts him, I share. Him, likewise.

It's not that the rest are secret. If either of us asks, the other tells as much as the asking person wants to know. It's that it's irrelevant and unimportant to the other person. We tell no lies and we don't evade. We just don't volunteer absolutely everything.

Nope. But why not be excited for you, Patty? It would be an adventure, right? :)

I quit using Yahoo for email a very very long time ago. In the beginning, it was okay. But that didn't last very long.

Jana, I also love reading about your adventures, so please, please do share them here.

I've done my own share of travel for work, as have other people close to me, so I'm well aware that travel for work isn't always fun. Of course it depends on the scheduling and how much down time you have, and that depends on the other people involved.

I'm glad you're getting these two vacations. :)
