Fellow Blog Mates,
I Have Something Tto Ssay
Thank You For Reading

I have been blogging here for a while now, mainly ranting about everyday nuisances and money thoughts, but sometimes about funny things that happened and blah blah...anyway. I see a lot of DS and DD and DH etc. in the other blogs. I have been wasting my time saying My Son and My younger Son or My Daughter when referring to my kids because I was not a member of the blogging inner circle. I was not given a handbook of acceptible blogger shorthand (ABS) so I was simply not in the know. Now that I know, I am sure to try hard to say my DS1 DD and DS2 were with DW and she said to me "DH your DS1 and DD and DS2 are really cute. Look at the way DS2 smiles, and listen to how pretty DS's voice is. DS1 was a pretty GB 2day don't U thnk? I spose he's ...really I ran out of stuff to say here but...

heh I need a guidebook of shorthand so I can write more posts instead of using more lettrs in my posts!! It's not fair that I am wasting letters and wearing out my poor fingers...

    hehe, I didn't know what those abreviations stand for when I first start either.

    I had to learn it from my kids. They'd roll their eyes and look at me like I was from outer space. Hang in there. I'm still trying to figure out what some of these things are.

    hahaha. I was the same way when I started... then I think I saw a parenthetical in someone's blog... took me a while though. I generally just say BF (boyfriend) and that's it. I guess it's easy when you're not married and have no kids... :P

    Well, I actually don't prefer abbreviations. Yeah, it seems like a bit more typing, but they also tend to create a bit more confusion. For example, some people use DS to stand for "Darling Sister" while others use the same DS to mean "Darling Son". Which is which isn't always that clear. To me, I would just type out "Son" or "Sister".

    However, if you are interested, I know there is a thread on it in the forums. Hopefully, it should be stickied, and I recommend reading it.

    It doesn't have anything to do with a blogging inner circle. This is just internet speak. It's been around a good fifteen years or so. This might help you to decipher things.
