dumb question

  1. Maybe I haven't been on here long enough. I'm confused by some of the abbreviations used on this board. I know SAHM-stay at home mom, but what is dh (dear husband?), dd, etc. I can't even remember some of the others I have seen; I should have made a list.

    dh-dear husband/dw-dear wife (or "damn" whatever rofl)

    mil-mother in law/fil-father in law
    kk-ok
    ty-thank you
    ttfn-tata for now
    ttyl-talk to you later
    fwiw-for what it's worth
    kwim?-know what I mean?
    iykwim-if you know what I mean
    qod-question of the day

    Nope, as you know......NOT a dumb question.

    dd=dear daughter
    ds=dear son
    FIL=father in law
    SIL=son in law or sister in law
    DIL=daughter in law
    IMHO=in my humble opinion
    ITA=I totally agree
    KWIM=know what I mean

    dp=dear puppy.......wait, I think that is something I use.

    How about (depending on mood, or circumstances)

    DH= dear husband
    dumb husband
    dopey husband
    damn husband
    divorced husband
    devoted husband
    dimwitted husband
    darn husband

    Only I know for sure which one I mean at the moment.
