    No idea to be honest. That said, if you have a squicky feeling about it, especially about the kids then it is definitely something to keep an eye on. The dude might just be very open, touchy-feely, and that is just how he is. He may be a creep. Definitely something to keep in mind just in case.

      anyway, party was fun. came home to a cold house and i'm sobering up. told husband about the touchy-feeliness and he said he was happy that i felt flattered.
      You are killing your children, you know that right. You might as well have passed them all beers, smokes, and a side of oxycodone!

      Oh yeah... and what canio said about Mr. TouchyFeely.
      Their is friendly social flirting, and then there is that. He's definitely pushing it even by my standards.
      (Those are the standards of a girl who was once suspended from school for giving a guy a bloody nose when he decided her butt was fair game while she was bent over at the water fountain BTW. )

      • lol, those addicts don't even know how much they're going through withdrawal right now. i seriously need to stop engaging in the stupid.

        i had a flirty feeling about the whole touchy-feeliness. but his wife also told me some things. apparently, when she was 17, his uncle intentionally came in on her in the shower and looked her up and down, then gave her a kiss on the cheek. his wife knew about it and thought it was hilarious. the explanation was "it's a british family." also, when the dad was taking my littlest to go dance, their daughter (5 yo) said something weird like "it's baby penis party time." I thought it was hilarious at the time, but a little weird. when i casually told the mom, she seemed confused and a little shocked. we had been talking about all sorts of random sex or body part related things, so her reaction was a little weird. i'm going to watch them closely. what makes me wary is the whole "tickling" thing. it seems to be pretty normal to tickle a kid whether or not they like it, and that doesn't fly in our house. a kid says "no" and that's NO. I've seen him tickle kids randomly off and on, but haven't seen the all-out force a kid down and tickle him thing. so we're fine so far, but if he crosses that line i'm not sure what we'll do.

        okay, food. so yesterday while i was using the neighbor's bathroom, i stepped on her scale (since mine is dead). i've gone up an additional 4 lbs, so i'm 16 lbs higher than i was last summer. i doubt it's muscle. so while i'm doing this "9 cups veg" thing, i also need to decide if i should add in a little hunger now and then. i'll wait a few more days and measure various areas to see if there's a change before deciding if i need to reduce my intake of food. i'd still maintain the meat and vegetables, but i'd probably eat only that and maybe not put as much butter on the veg.

        Dinner was 2 hamburger patties (beef+liquid smoke+paprika; grilled)with homemade BBQ sauce, a bunch of baby lettuce, one bell pepper and small onion sauteed in butter, and a handful of yukon gold oven fries.

          ^^Too lazy to quote the whole thing and edit it down to that. LOL ***

          Um... sorry but I wouldn't put much store in that weight yesterday. With two different scales you are not really comparing apples to apples. Ya know... plus during a day of eating and drinking. Bah!
          Measure... then see.

          All those veggies sure look good. I need to have a bit of a fridge clean tomorrow... and I know there are some bits and pieces heading for a saute!

          And... I'm just having a bit of fun occasionally poking those two nut jobs. LOL

          • lol, it's fun to watch. you're right about the scale thing, plus it's TTOM, so i guess that makes a difference. still, it's not going down either. so i've only been doing "the veggie challenge" for 5 days. i'll wait until tuesday and then measure again, see where we're at. what i'm doing feels sustainable, i've noticed that i'm staying satiated longer and not really craving junk. not that that has been a huge problem for me in the past, but it has been less of a problem than normal.

                • i plugged in everything i could remember eating yesterday and only came up with 1700 calories! that's including 4 T of butter and the 2 T honey that i snacked on! my omega 6:3 ratio was 7.6:1, but i think that's wrong because they have no "grass fed butter" option. I also only ate around 1/2 of my RDA for iron, calcium, and protein (61g).

                  breakfast today: a big-ass steak. the package says 11 oz. so i might cut it in half and eat the other half with lunch. then, it's probably some greens and maybe sweet potato fries or something. also, i made chicken broth last night. i think i'm going to portion it out in mason jars and freeze some. i can keep a rotation going so that i can drink a little every day.

                  skink- i think what i liked most were the bars on either side and the rope.

                  • Cool wall. Good picture of the kid with the violin. I play guitar so the bigger kids both have little toy ones, but they drive me crazy because they don't understand you can't be rough with them. My girl will hold it and strum it and sing with me but the boy lays it flat on the floor and bangs the strings something terrible. I can't make him understand HOW you hold/strum it. They can't touch mine, I love it too much.
                    As for the touchy-feely guy, that's not appropriate, especially for a neighbor they just met. Maybe kinda sorta funny if you all were long-time friends, but having just met you, he's a creep. The fact that his wife thought it was funny is equally disturbing. If this happened to my wife, I would tell her to not talk to or let him in the vicinity of my house until I could get home and stomp a mudhole in his a** and kick the water out. Just sayin'.
                    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

                      • I'm with Caveman on the touching thing. If your instincts are saying "not good" then go with them. I, personally, tend toward NOT being touchy-feeley, but I can tell the difference between "sigh, it's just who they are" and "back the f off, buddy." Yours sounds like the latter.

                        Glad the rest of the party was good, though

                        • Yeah - I'd watch the neighbor too. It probably all is in fun, but pedafiles use tickling as a guage of how a child's defenses are and how far they are likely to let them go. Maybe a reminder for you kids about "private parts" and setting boundaries would be good right about now (casually of course - no need to alarm) and remind them that they can talk to you about anything that may be bothering them. People are mostly just fun and being harmless - esp. when a party and drinking are involved, but my "Mom radar" would be up now too if I were you.

                          • we'll see where the neighbor thing leads. i'm building a friendship with his wife, as things progress maybe i'll probe for information from her to see what she thinks of it. I didn't really have a problem with it at the time, I just didn't think it was appropriate and didn't want to give him the impression that i was open to anything that might hurt my husband, YKWIM? i was kind of shocked at my husband's response. he didn't seem jealous at all, only intrigued. the kid thing is what scares me more.

                              I recently dug my guitar out of the closet and left it laying on the bed. My 6 year wanted to see what would happen if you turn the fancy looking nobs. Well, we found that the strings snap. How fun!

                              I agree with this take on the neighbor. A close friend who you know their intentions is one thing, but if someone else put their hands on my wife like that it would not be pretty.

                              I don'y like the tickling. I always saw tickling as way to dominate someone. Not always, there can be fun playful tickling, but in what you described it sounds like that type.

                                My baby is a Martin, I drove 6 hours to pay $2200 for it. Turning my fancy nobs would cause daddy to have a heart attack and the offending kid would be sent to live with the Mennonite's.
