An "initial" question....

I've been at The Forum since December, and try as I might, I haven't been able to find a "glossary" of the shortcut initials that are used.

Many of them are figure-out-able: DH, DD, etc. BUT....

But since is the first (and only!) Forum I've been on, I don't have any "lingo" base.

Am I missing the obvious (I looked in FAQ...), or am I even more technologically challenged than I thought (hard to believe...)?

Any help would be gratefully appreciated!

doi...

ha ha ha Maureen. I consider myself young (even though I am pushing a milestone b-day) and didn't understand a lot of the lingo either since this is the only on-line place I visit.

I was researching for a promo I had to write (for a show about kids growing up on line --that really made me feel old) and I came across this web site

www.netlingo.com

have fun!!!

Maureen, maybe if you told us what in specific you don't understand? There is so much lingo, it's hard to go through it all, LOL.

Oh and LOL is laugh out loud.

DH - dear husband (or dumbhead husband, all depends on the user)
DD - dear daughter
DS - dear son
DSS - dear stepson
DSD - dear stepdaughter
XH - ex-husband
MIL - mother-in-law
FIL - father-in-law
SIL - sister-in-law
etc.

I have no idea why the "D" started in front of them though. It's a bit sappy, but it works. Some SAHM probably started it.

SAHM - Stay at home mom

Oh and to add to Kimberly's list, I use FH a lot for Future Husband!

And along with Maryam's IMO, there is IMHO (in my honest opinion) as well as LMHO (laughing my head off).

Oh and FWIW, for what it's worth.

I'm pretty sure that FYI is For Your Information, though it conveys the same idea.

Lina, very likely that you're right, I don't know that stuff anyway and asked my DH.
