[ - ] Anyone else still thinking about yesterday's post re: the married woman having an affair and pregnant with her partners child? Her situation is beyond and no I don't think it was fake. 1 Reply [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I do think she is proud of her situation. Almost as if she wanted to show-off to everyone. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Am I at the wrong here? My kids are at school till 3. We kept our housekeeper/nanny because she is great cook and is willing to clean even if reluctantly. We didn't cut her hours so that she can be available during sick days/holidays. She has 5 hours each day for housekeeping which IMO is really too much so I asked if we can give her 2 1/2 days off dieting the week in exchange for roughly 6 hours in the weekend or at least every other weekend. She said she needed to see how the long the housekeeping will take and it's taking forever. It took her 4 hours to cook 2 dishes yesterday. Am I wrong to feel frustrated? (She doesn't have family here) 10 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I'm sure you are a lovely family but she wants her down time. Everyone does, I wouldn't go for that. [ Reply | More ]

Sure but be prepared for her to agree yet use her newfound downtime during the week to look for thr FT job she needs. [ Reply | More ]

I guess it's the nature of this business, if you don't need her then say so. Be honest about what your situation is and say "we love you but this is our situation and here are our options...a, b, c. What works for you? Then she can mull it over and have some control over how this impacts her, which I think as humans, we like to have choices and make our own decisions over. [ Reply | More ]

^ After reading UB it seems I should be happy she can cook well but is it like this IRL? Are most women so incapable now that they can't do basic housework anymore? [ Reply | More ]

Sort of. You are asking her to make a trade that only someone afraid of losing their job would agree to. Accordingly, she is trying her best to make it not s worthwhile choice for you either. Passive aggressive but it really stinks that you are asking her to work PT 7(?) days per week bc you think her lack of fsmily here means she has nothing better (or justifiably more important to her) to do with her weekends.

Thanks but what do I do about dh? He doesn't open his own mail or turn off lights he was using before leaving the house. But he will make sure that the EZPass he uses to commute with a coworker is filled even though he never filled ours when we used to commute together. These seem like petty things but the are emblematic of our relationship. I just can't take it. [ Reply | More ]

Why isn't the easy pass on auto fill with credit card? What's in his mail that needs to be opened? Frankly, I rarely schick the mail but my DH is semis obsessive about it. We used to live in an apartment and I would simply toss sbthing yhst didn't look important. He needs to open and look at everything. Could you possibly be this way? Not saying you aren't right about overarching issues but the ones you point out seem so nitpicky that it could be Parton thr issue too. [ Reply | More ]

automate everythign you can - bills go on auto pay as for the mail - pile it up for him in one place and ignore. Any major bill or financial statement needs to come to you or email. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I need a parental control software program that will work remotely and that will permit my dc access to only certain websites (the ones needed for homework!) during a specific period of time.

[ - ] This weather is so bad that our pit bull wouldn't stay in his pen and slept on my legs on the bed all night. That's when you know it's bad, when he finds the super dog strength to leap three feet over the wall to run upstairs. I just looked outside and stuff is everywhere in the yard. DH stayed overnight in the city. If the basement floods, I am so screwed. 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Charlotte is actually pretty nice, but it might still be a bit of a cultural shock. I'm from LA, but worked in the south for a few years - Charlotte was the closest I felt to "home". Also, there are lots of beautiful areas in NC to explore. [ Reply | More ]
