As someone said above there is a lot of reporting of parosmia after contracting the Covid virus. This can cause people to associate previously pleasant smells as foul smelling and can even affect taste (which is heavily influenced by smell). I’ve seen multiple people mention Coca Cola tastes poor after contracting Covid despite liking it before hand.
Can attest to changing the way things taste. I love anything lemon. Cakes, cookies, candies, even lemon juice on fish,etc. Since Covid (3 months ago) anything lemon tastes like dish soap. It's so upsetting. I used to use lemon in so many things and no its just horrible.
Welcome to what women have to deal with routinely.
If he didn't have a sexual interest in you, he was probably going to ask for money or try to take it. When they sit down, it's never because they're going to simply say, "please give me money" either. He'll have had some long, complicated sob story lined up about how he can't afford a kidney transplant for his grandmother.
Good idea to move away.
I go to the gym at 4 a.m. specifically because I DON'T want to talk people. At least 3 times a week a man will come in and get on the treadmill right next to me. And immediately start talking to me. I finally told him that 1. I come at 4 a.m. because I don't want to interact with people, 2. There are 30 more treadmills he could choose, 3. Choosing the one next to me is creepy AF. What is wrong with some men??
stop letting them come over and baby wear when they are around this action requires a serious time out on their end.
My daughter did this. She got so irritated with people just taking the baby out of her arms, the crib, the swing, etc, that she started wearing her whenever company came. It mostly worked a treat but there were a few...persistant...people who would legit try to remove her from the carrier WHILE SHE WAS WEARING IT. They were not so politely shown the door. The audacity of some people.
And now you know why he's an ex...NTA
YTA- Not only for "forbidding" your husband from doing something that you admit wouldn't inconvenience you BUT moreover because you came here for a judgement and its pretty clear what most people here think. And yet you are still arguing. You are the asshole. Deal with it and stop trying to control your husband.
I got an ensuite bathroom of my own at, uh, 47. It’s really lovely and I really appreciate it.
It’s very hard to have much sympathy for anyone in this story except Ella because a high-conflict divorce is hard. OP it sounds like you’re a lovely and thoughtful parent. You need to tell your family and friends who express unsolicited opinions about how you allocate the rooms in your own damn house to MYOB & STFU.
Siblings experience jealousy. Your kids knowing that their whining about each other gets any traction in the extended family is WAY more harmful than any decision you make.
I was 50 when I got an en suite. Growing up there were 6 of us sharing one bathroom.
NTA. It's your yard. You're outside. Definitely NTA.
P.S. No judgement, but I hope you quit one day (for your own health).
Edit: Sincere congratulations to all of you Redditors replying to my comment with your stories of quitting. Whether you've been tobacco-free for 30 years or for 30 minutes... Good for you!
Mark Twain said of smoking : " Quitting is easy, I've done it a hundred times."
I know! It's also got Finnish and Italian origins too. I don't know many. But I knew one and she was an amazing lady.
I had a great Aunt Aura. It was short for Aurora, which I didn't even know until I was an adult. No one called her by her full name. She was just Aura and we loved her.
