    [–] What's this ground cover that I keep finding in large patches across my yard? This is near fort Worth Texas. I really like it. savedthebestforlast 2 points ago in whatsthisplant

    I don't water my yard at least not the area this is in. In fact since I've stopped watering the rest of my yard it hasn't gotten any runoff and it's actually grown twice in size this spring.

    I'll have to wait til next spring to do that. I have a hard time growing grass but I'm loving this stuff.

    [–] What are you STILL mad about? savedthebestforlast 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Late to the party and long post tldr at bottom. My now husband was in the military and was able to get 2 weeks leave so we could get married. It was rushed because we didn't even know if it was going to be approved so we didn't plan anything big. We planned for a small simple wedding with only family and a few very close friends. My parents were the only family in the state and my mother was the only one I would invite.

    So the night before the wedding I called her when I knew she would be awake (things had always been on the rocky side when it came to our relationships) to tell her that my fiance's leave had been approved and that we were getting married the next day.

    My fiance and I had been together for 2 years by this time, we were high school sweethearts and everything. We were also only 18 at the time. Which to my mother was a big deal. We knew we wanted to be together and we were going to get married no matter how she felt. His parents were happy for us and even helped with the entire wedding.

    The phone call didn't go so well. I explained to her that I knew it was last minute to let her know but it was last minute for us as well. She also already knew that we had been planning on getting married for months but couldn't set anything in stone until his leave was approved. Up until this point she never had anything bad to say about our relationship or even us getting married. So when she told me that I was making the biggest mistake of my life and she didn't want to have anything to do with the wedding or us it hurt a lot.

    I had already told her where and when we were going to be getting married and told her I would like for her to attend since I didn't have anyone else there for me. She blew up on me and I can still remember crying myself to sleep the night before my wedding because I knew that this wasn't going to be something I was going to get over easy.

    The next day we were through with the wedding. It was small and sweet. Nothing fancy. After the ceremony was over and we were cutting the cake my new mil's phone started ringing. Turns out my mother was calling her to find out where and when the wedding was taking place. I asked my mil not to answer it.

    I didn't speak to my mother for several years after this and we didn't start speaking again until I moved back to the state after my son was born (about 5 years after the wedding). Over the course of 4 years we attempted to have a relationship again, I wanted my son to get to know his grandmother and even introduced her fiance as grandpa (I'll never make that mistake again).

    About 2 years ago thing had gotten really bad between her fiance and her and she was scared so against my better judgement we let her move in with us to get away from him. She stayed for a year and our relationship got so bad that we avoided each other and didn't speak for months. She destroyed my floor in her room didn't pay rent or help out with any bills and even accused my 5 yr old of sneaking into her room while she was gone and getting into her things. For the record he did not, and even if he did no one would have been able to tell because her room looked like a hoarders house.

    In the end she decided to up and leave without ever saying a word to me. The kicker was she called her ex fiance to come help her move and left half her stuff for me to take care of. It's now been a year since she moved out and she's back with him. Oh and it was also my husbands idea to have her move in. He did it for all the right reasons (she was in an abusive relationship and he didn't want her to get hurt).

    I've asked my son how he feels about his grandmother to see how this whole thing has affected him and he seems fine.

    Tldr: mother said I was making biggest mistake of my life the day before my wedding. Then 9 years later moved in with us (husband, child, and I) to get away from abusive ex and then moved out a yr later to go back to him.

    [–] Should I give up and sell it? More in description. savedthebestforlast 6 points ago in classiccars

    I can't tell you what to do but I can say this: our first car was a 79 El Camino and we loved it. We kept it for several years and towards the end we stopped working on it because of money and the fact that I just had a child. Not long after we moved back home and my husband was working all the time he decided to sell it. Our son was only 7 months old. We knew that it would take a long time to get her where we wanted her and we didn't think we would ever get there. So he decided to sell it. He couldn't stand seeing it just sitting there collecting dust. Now 7 years later and we both greatly regret selling her. If I could go back I would do my best to keep my husband from selling our first car.

    [–] I'm going through severe nicotine withdrawal. I'm 14 savedthebestforlast 8 points ago in confession

    You can do it. I recently quit smoking after 20 years of smoking. That first day was hell, the following week sucked as well, I'm not gonna lie. But if you can make it through the first day, when you wake up the 2nd day you think to yourself "I made it 1 whole day, I can make it another". Just take it one day at a time.

    I haven't had a cigarette in 39 days, I still have my moments where I want to pick one up but it's much easier to resist now. And I smoked almost a pack a day for 20 years. Distractions only help so much, find something productive to do every time the urge arises and remember to drink plenty of water. And don't be too hard on yourself, quitting is very hard but its worth it in the end.

    If you need someone to talk to about what your going through and understands, then I'm here.

    [–] What’s your favorite insult? savedthebestforlast 5 points ago in AskReddit

    I just posted "cum guzzling gutter whore." Now I'm wondering where it even came from in the first place.

    [–] What’s your favorite insult? savedthebestforlast 1 points ago in AskReddit

    "Cum guzzling gutter whore." Someone said this a long time ago and it has forever stuck with me. I don't think I've ever said it to someone and meant it as an insult though.

    [–] What is something that only you have , that nobody else in your family has? savedthebestforlast 73 points ago in AskReddit

    Same here. Everyone has brown or blue eyes. I'm the only one with green eyes. This includes grandparents and aunts & uncles, that I'm aware of.
