What do "HB", "DW" and others stand for?

I assume that they refer to family members, like "SIL" must be "sister in law"?

What are some others?

As far as I know, DH is dear husband, DW is dear wife, DD dear daughter, DS dear son. You are right about SIL meaning sister-in-law. I don't know but HB might be husband.

It means BOTH! I started referring my husband online as HB before I was familiar with computer jargon.

Dang, Shannon, on the "rate a phrase" scale, that one's worth at least a dollar!

My dad was a coal miner who never quite finished high school, and my mother was a school teacher. She had a great vocabulary, and everytime she used a "fancy" word, my dad would rate it, as in a 50 cent word, 75 cent word, etc. I guess a dollar word would be worth $10, nowadays.
