Toddlers: 12 - 24 Months

NEW TOPICS

Something that doesn't address age, dogs, ugly babies, or Walmart...

How about...

(and because numbered lists are STILL cool...)

1. Would/could you live with an in-law without committing murder?

2. What is the least amount of money per month you could live on without losing your mind?

3. What are you most frivolous about?

4. Who NOT ON THE NEST annoys you most on a regular basis, and what do you do about it?

EDIT : The "amount" is not meant to necessarily be a number. More of a comfort level. Don't feel like you have to post your take home pay.

    3. What are you most frivolous about? DD's clothes

    4. Who NOT ON THE NEST annoys you most on a regular basis, and what do you do about it? My co-worker. Classic one-upper and thinks everyone has the hots for her. I handle it by being passive aggressive.

    How about...

    (and because numbered lists are STILL cool...)

    1. Would/could you live with an in-law without committing murder? Yep. Willingly, even.

    2. What is the least amount of money per month you could live on without losing your mind? I dare not admit this.

    3. What are you most frivolous about? Food

    4. Who NOT ON THE NEST annoys you most on a regular basis, and what do you do about it? My mom. I swear under my breath at her after I get off the phone with her. I love her and we get along really well, but there are moments when I think "OMG. How am I related to this nut job?"

  • 1. Yes, but I wouldn't enjoy it.

    2. Enough to cover the bills, I could live without a lot of "fun" money if I really had to. It wouldn't bother me too much.

    3. Clothes. I will buy something in every shade the store has just because I can't decide on a color, so I feel like I should have them all. Same with shoes.

    4. Nick Cannon. 20-something million people are watching you on TV, and you aren't even close to speaking proper English?! Bleh. I can't watch him.

    How about...

    (and because numbered lists are STILL cool...)

    1. Would/could you live with an in-law without committing murder? No.

    2. What is the least amount of money per month you could live on without losing your mind? I don't know... with mortgage payments and student loans and stuff it's probably quite a lot.

    3. What are you most frivolous about? Financially?  Probably food.  If something looks good in the grocery store I buy it.

    4. Who NOT ON THE NEST annoys you most on a regular basis, and what do you do about it?  My brother's girlfriend is an idiot of epic proportions.  I avoid her like the plague.  And I have never had the plague before which I chalk up to my brilliant plague-avoiding skills.

  • 1. Would/could you live with an in-law without committing murder? Yes.  I could live with my MIL, because she is awesome.  FIL would have to move out though.  While I like him as a person, he can't keep his mouth shut about his uber-conservative stances on life.  I can't keep my uber-liberal mouth shut when he starts talking.

    2. What is the least amount of money per month you could live on without losing your mind?  I've lived on a 1,500 a month in a high COL area.  It's rough, but doable.  I don't know what we'd be at as a family.  DH would have a harder time with it than I would.

    3. What are you most frivolous about?  Buying things for DS.

    4. Who NOT ON THE NEST annoys you most on a regular basis, and what do you do about it?  My mom.  I try to keep contact to a maximum of once a week.  Thankfully, she lives across the country.


  • 1. Would/could you live with an in-law without committing murder? depends on the IL. SIL totally. in fact i wish she could come live with dh and i. FIL. nope. he'd be dead meat. lock me up!

    2. What is the least amount of money per month you could live on without losing your mind? oh god.... i don't even know. probably more than most people b/c we live in a high COL area. and i have a target obsession!

    3. What are you most frivolous about? clothes. i have an obsession. dresses in particular!

    4. Who NOT ON THE NEST annoys you most on a regular basis, and what do you do about it? dh's coworker.... i'm cutting him off. and sadly sometimes my mom. it's such a double edged sword b/c i love her more than anything and she is the best mom EVER, but she drives me crazy. she's been away for over a week and i miss her like crazy so i'm hoping to remember that when she gets back and be more patient!

    1. Would/could you live with an in-law without committing murder?Yes, but my in-laws are wonderful people

    2. What is the least amount of money per month you could live on without losing your mind? i honestly don't know the answer to this.  i guess as long as all our bills are covered we're good to go.  i enjoy the extras in life, but they are imperative to my happiness.

    3. What are you most frivolous about? i would say on shoes/clothes/dd/dinner parties....it's all relative though.

    4. Who NOT ON THE NEST annoys you most on a regular basis, and what do you do about it?my sister...i really wish she would get her act together.  she's freaking 25 already!  stop asking mom and dad for money.

  • 1. Would/could you live with an in-law without committing murder? I could do it.  Not because I have a great relationship with my in-laws but because my DH dealt with my mom living here for a little over a year.  This makes him a saint in my book.

    2. What is the least amount of money per month you could live on without losing your mind? Same as pp.  I need bill, gas and food money.  I could live without a lot of extra fun money.

    3. What are you most frivolous about? Going out to eat.

    4. Who NOT ON THE NEST annoys you most on a regular basis, and what do you do about it? Probably my mom. She is my BFF but sometimes I can't believe she goes day to day without someone holding her hand.  She loses her keys on a daily basis, is always "making mistakes" on her bank account and lets not get into her choice in men.  I usually don't do anything about it.  I try to just be supportive.

    1. Would/could you live with an in-law without committing murder?  Depends on the in-law.  MIL or SIL, hell no!

    2. What is the least amount of money per month you could live on without losing your mind?  Hmmmm...enough to cover all the bills.

    3. What are you most frivolous about?  My hair...I don't treat myself to a whole lot so a great cut and awesome products are my thing!

    4. Who NOT ON THE NEST annoys you most on a regular basis, and what do you do about it?   DH's sister (the SIL above).  I ignore most of it and my tongue hurts from biting it so much, lol.

     

    Oh, and THANK YOU.

  • 1. Would/could you live with an in-law without committing murder?my SIL, yes. meaning the woman my brother married. anyone on dh's side, um no. wait. i could prob live with FIL.

    2. What is the least amount of money per month you could live on without losing your mind? oh geez...

    3. What are you most frivolous about? eating out

    4. Who NOT ON THE NEST annoys you most on a regular basis, and what do you do about it? bad drivers. and i honk at them. :)

  • 1.  I want to say that I could, but they do a lot of things that drive me nuts.  If I could learn to stand up for myself I could do it no problem.

    2. Enough to pay bills and provide food for our family.  I have no idea what that number is though.

    3. Things for Brooke.  I have a sad Target obsession.

    4. My mom.  It is sad to say but she is very critical of me, even 12 hours away.  Yesterday I got a 10 minutes lecture on how my house should be cleaner.  She hasn't been here in months.

  • 1. Not a chance in hell

    2. I'm not sure... I guess just enough to cover the bills and groceries...

    3. DS's clothes and shoes

    4. My MIL and FIL. What do I do about it? I see them as little as possible. Usually when DH takes DS over to their house for the twice a week visits they insist on I try to find something I have to do so I can't go...

  • 1. Would/could you live with an in-law without committing murder? My In laws yes, my parents hell no.

    2. What is the least amount of money per month you could live on without losing your mind? ETA I am not going to have Punk judging me in this thread like she did Jessibell

    3. What are you most frivolous about? Purses for me. Toys for DD.

    4. Who NOT ON THE NEST annoys you most on a regular basis, and what do you do about it? A friend, complain to my nest friend about it lol. 

  • wait, jessibell - you'd need 60k after taxes in north texas to not lose your mind? lol seriously?
  • To answer my own...

    1. I can do it. I wouldn't recommend it. And I'm not sure how long the murder can be put off. It might be inevitable. Is feeding someone with a heart condition a lot of bacon murder?

    2. 1K blogger prompted this one. I find myself strangely fascinated in a car-wreck kind of way. I've done the math though, and frankly, I could live a lot better on a lot less than she does. The only stumbling block is our health insurance, which is more per month than her whole life.

    3. I'm frivolous about books and movies. And really good chocolate.

    4. My FIL makes me angry without saying a word. Just seeing him makes my blood pressure go up. I've been handling it with passive aggression, but frankly, that's making my stress level get worse and worse. I may resort to sticking him with a pin every time he walks past. But then he'd bleed on my carpet. And my carpet is beige. It'll never come out. Sigh. Passive aggression it is.

    1. Would/could you live with an in-law without committing murder? probably not.

    2. What is the least amount of money per month you could live on without losing your mind?

    that depends on whether you are factoring in housing payments there or not. if I didn't have to worry about the mortgage, probably $1500 or so. 

    3. What are you most frivolous about? my hair.

    4. Who NOT ON THE NEST annoys you most on a regular basis, and what do you do about it? a good friend's husband. try to avoid him.

  • 1. I lived with MIL on two separate occasions: a year and a half the first time and less than a year the second time.  I did not kill her, but I thought about it on occasion ;)

    2.enough to pay the mortgage and the bills (with a very small amount left over for coffee) (edited to take out numbers Stick out tongue)

    3. books - I want to have a library in my home someday so I buy books probably on a bi-weekly basis (yes, I read all the books I buy)

    4. my students and their damn clicking pens (they know the wrath it brings)

    1. Would/could you live with an in-law without committing murder?  NO!! And the same goes for my mom

    2. What is the least amount of money per month you could live on without losing your mind? I'd say about $5,000, it is less than that right now and I am losing my mind!!!

    3. What are you most frivolous about? Anything for DS

    4. Who NOT ON THE NEST annoys you most on a regular basis, and what do you do about it? A Coworker. What do I do about it? I get annoyed and biitch about it!! What can I do??

    (and because numbered lists are STILL cool...)

    1. Would/could you live with an in-law without committing murder? Yes, with enough space we'd do fine.

    2. What is the least amount of money per month you could live on without losing your mind? No less than we have now.

    3. What are you most frivolous about? I'm really not.

    4. Who NOT ON THE NEST annoys you most on a regular basis, and what do you do about it? Oh nooooo way.

  • 1. Would/could you live with an in-law without committing murder? Maybe, it would depend on how long we had to live with them.  they are not bad people they are just very controling.

    2. What is the least amount of money per month you could live on without losing your mind?  Whatever it would cost to keep a roof over our head and food in our bellies. 

    3. What are you most frivolous about?  Buying things for DD. 

    4. Who NOT ON THE NEST annoys you most on a regular basis, and what do you do about it?   My SIL definatly hands down.  They treat her like she is 15 and she is 24.  She is whiney and it makes me crazy.  We have plans with my IL's this weekend and they may be late because SIL has a doc. appt. and they don't want to leave her behind might because she might miss out on something.   They tell everyone that she is a manager of a target like she is some big wig exec there and she runs the front end cashiers.  It is a job that I did in high school at a local food store.  I finally told MIL the other day that she is 24 not 14 and let her learn to live on her own.

  • 1. Would/could you live with an in-law without committing murder??hmmmm probably not. i can hardly live with my H.

    2. What is the least amount of money per month you could live on without losing your mind? its the current amount we live on. which is nonyabiznazz :)

    3. What are you most frivolous about? trinkets - stuff like tiny, odd toys?

    4. Who NOT ON THE NEST annoys you most on a regular basis, and what do you do about it? my mom, and i just dont call her.

  • image LoriFalce:

    1. Would/could you live with an in-law without committing murder? Not a chance in hell. Maybe GMIL in Texas if she'd learn to use her AC but that's it!

    2. What is the least amount of money per month you could live on without losing your mind? Wow, that's a toughie. When I was pregnant we lived on 2k/mo and I was pretty close to crazy and that was pre-DD. I think 3k would be the lowest. ETA: in blogger lady style, I COULD live on less. I was thinking more along the lines of how low I would want to go without losing my mind. If I had a larger house with no mortgage to worry about, it would be much less than that.

    3. What are you most frivolous about? At the moment, fabric. It's my ridiculous new obsession. I can't find time to sew anything!

    4. Who NOT ON THE NEST annoys you most on a regular basis, and what do you do about it? My friend. I'm avoiding her at the moment because our H's are BFFs and I know how she reacts to things.

  • 1. Would/could you live with an in-law without committing murder?

         Well I did live with my MIL for quite a few months. I think she had a mental breakdown during that time, and while I didn't want to murder her, slapping her upside the head and committing to a mental instituition seemed like wonderful ideas.

    2. What is the least amount of money per month you could live on without losing your mind?

         Probably somewhere around $2800, with mortgage and bills that doesn't leave much else.

    3. What are you most frivolous about?

         Food! I hate to cook so if I'm in a funk we eat out a lot. We seriously don't have much to eat in our house right now.

    4. Who NOT ON THE NEST annoys you most on a regular basis, and what do you do about it?

         My sister. She is dating the biggest loser. He is a felon and has had a very hard time finding a job. He keeps getting fired for stealing. He has lied and done so many stupid things and yet my sister believes everything that he says. I tried talking to her about it but she is not willing to listen. So I sit back and b!tch about it to my mom, husband, and internet strangers.

    1. Would/could you live with an in-law without committing murder? Probably for a while ... I like my ILs a lot.

    2. What is the least amount of money per month you could live on without losing your mind? So not even going there ... this was not the best question to AVERT drama with.

    3. What are you most frivolous about?  "Stuff" for me and DH. 

    4. Who NOT ON THE NEST annoys you most on a regular basis, and what do you do about it? My supervisor.

    EDIT : The "amount" is not meant to necessarily be a number. More of a comfort level. Don't feel like you have to post your take home pay.

  • 1. Would/could you live with an in-law without committing murder? I barely know my ILs, so it's hard to say, but I'm going to go with no based on the little I know about them.

    2. What is the least amount of money per month you could live on without losing your mind?  I have no idea, but it would be a pretty big number.

    3. What are you most frivolous about?  Eating out and buying wine.

    4. Who NOT ON THE NEST annoys you most on a regular basis, and what do you do about it?  Hmm, not many people.  A few people I work with think that because I'm not 55 and I don't have a penis, I don't know anything.  Those people drive me nuts, particularly because I am the client in most situations.  I don't hesitate to put them in their place, in the nicest way possible of course.

  • 1. Would/could you live with an in-law without committing murder?
    Depends on the in-law. DH's side nope, no way. My side, maybe.

    2. What is the least amount of money per month you could live on without losing your mind?
    I currently have the income of "unemployment". By myself I could survive but as a family I would be extremely unyhappy (and probably have to move in with the inlaws, which ends with me in jail.)

    3. What are you most frivolous about?
    That's a tough one. I am really frivolous when it comes to clothes for DD.

    4. Who NOT ON THE NEST annoys you most on a regular basis, and what do you do about it?
    My MIL, generally bite my lip.

    EDIT : The "amount" is not meant to necessarily be a number. More of a comfort level. Don't feel like you have to post your take home pay.

    As I said, an amount as in comfort level. I think three people gave numbers.

    And who said I was trying to avert drama. I might just have been bored with the old drama.

  • 1. Would/could you live with an in-law without committing murder? Maybe my BIL, but definitely not MIL/FIL.

    2. What is the least amount of money per month you could live on without losing your mind? I have no idea. Maybe $3000?

    3. What are you most frivolous about? Probably eating out...but we are working on that. I'd say in general I'm pretty good about not spending extra money on crap we don't really need.

    4. Who NOT ON THE NEST annoys you most on a regular basis, and what do you do about it? A friend's husband. I try to avoid him but sometimes it is impossible. Luckily she is trying to divorce him. He is a total douchebag, he even called her a s.l.u.t. (can you type that normal on here?) in front of their children...one of whom is my goddaughter. So NOT ok.
