I could spend every day there, love the high line! Definitely go to Chelsea Market and get takeout from the Italian place at the front (I totally forget what it's called but it's right at the front and the have the BEST Bolognese pasta!). Bring it and some drinks and eat at the high line. Have fun! [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] WWYD? I rented a house with my 3 year old and DH for the week in New England. The house is on the property of and is managed by a resort that is adults only. Their whole resort schtick is quiet, peaceful, relaxing. When I booked the house, they said kids were fine and that we could use the pool and all the facilities at the resort. I called twice to double check that it was ok that my child was coming. When we checked in yesterday, the person who checked us in said we *could* use the pool, but that we need to be quiet. He quickly said the pool at their sister hotel the town over is kid friendly and we would be able to use that. The vibe I got was 'please don't use our pool.' The whole reason we rented this house was because of the pool- it's right outside our door. I went over there to check it out, and there are about a dozen middle aged people sitting quietly around the pool reading and sunning. No matter how much I stay on top of my child when we are there, we'd destroy the atmosphere. Am I an asshole if we just go? We paid 6k to rent this place. 22 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Look, I love kids, but if I'm at an adults only resort and reading peacefully by the pool, I don't love kids in that scenario. People who book at adults only resorts do so so that they can be away from young kids on vacation. Truly. I'm not sure who kept telling you it was okay to bring your toddler, but common sense should have kicked in here. I agree with posters who say go at 8am and clear out by 11, and then go again around 7pm when adults are eating. Or, go to the pool across town and ask the resort to put you up in a house at this "sister hotel" of theirs instead. [ Reply | More ]

It sounds like you asked them three times and they told you it was fine. I think you're in the right, but in the long run, you're not going to have a good time if your kid goes over there and wreaks havoc. DC will have no one to play with, everyone will be looking at him/her like they hate him, and that's going to get old over the course of the week. Can you scope out times when the older guests don't use the pool, since it's right by your door, and use it then? [ Reply | More ]

Yes, you're an asshole if you just go. But they were assholes to give you the impression it is okay when it obviously isn't. I'd ask for a refund for the house, and have them place you in a nice suite at their sister hotel instead, the one that is more kid friendly. Otherwise you'll be anxious about disturbing the peace all week, your kid wont' have as much fun being shushed by you every 3 minutes, and the other guests you are paying for an adult only vacation end up getting ripped off too.

Tough one. Yes, you'd be an asshole to use the pool and disturb other people who signed on for an adults only experience, but on the other hand, you confirmed over and over again that it would be OK to bring your child. I would use the kid friendly pool in the next town and complain to whoever rented you the house and demand a partial refund. [ Reply | More ]

Our taxpayer dollars and support goes to the murderers in Israel as we speak. My politicians are being harassed by the nasty AIPAC each time they say something in favor of Palestinians. And let me remind you: i have nothing to do with what GB did to the natives 300-400 years ago. GB is the worst when it comes to violations of human rights, for sure. This is here and now, you are responsible for these Palestinian deaths, so am I. So be responsible with your statements and support. [ Reply | More ]

What?! Neither of you are making sense. The UN declared Israel a state in 1948. Surrounding Arab countries didn't want to recognize, so they went to war w/ Israel. Arabs within Palestine were told to leave (with expectation they would c ome back after Israel defeated) , or some of them left on own accord, or some of them were evicted. When Israel surprised everyone and won, this left a refugee issue. Rather than work on creating a state of their own, the refugees refused to live in official co-existence with Jews (many of which had already been there). This how the violence has continued. Israel is to blame for sometimes taking its attempts at self-defense too zealously. Palestine/the palestinians are to blame for resorting to violence, terror and hate instead of accepting the fact that two peoples live on this land and could do so peacefully if they stopped entertaining the idea of erasing all jewish presence from the land.

Now the GOVERNMENT may have made some problematic political moves over the last few years, usually out an overzealous attempt to self defend-- but the reaction of self-defense to unrelenting rocket attacks and constant attempted terrorist events seems fairly straightforward for any nation.

It's not impossible. Losing weight is always hard, but it is not impossible. You have complete control of you diet, eat healthy things that keep you full, like steel cut oats with a tablespoon of no sugar added peanut butter, eat 3 small meals and 3 snacks a day, eat big servings of vegetables. Take one step at time, work on your getting your portions under control then work on lower salt. Take the stairs instead of the elevator, then once around the block, then walk for half an hour. You can do it if he make it a priority. [ Reply | More ]

Agree with you. But everyone has to start somewhere. OP is probably feeling overwhelmed and alone. At least WW would give her some guidance and build awareness. Offer her substitutes for her usual food choices. I think just becoming aware of what you are really eating is a first step. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] WWYD: My boss was fired after working her butt off for 5 years at this job. I have been given majority of her responsibilities, with minor raise. Now one of the bigger responsibilities that I received, I get a letter from HR outlining my duties and stating that these add'tal responsibilities will be reevaluated in 3 months. It just leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I've been debating whether to leave. Not sure what to do. WWYD in this position? TIA! 20 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Perhaps. Every job is an opportunity to learn the skills you need to get the next job up. It doesn't have to be at this company. I'm in search, and what you could say to me: With the involuntary departure of my boss, I was given her job with additional responsibilites. It was a challenge, but I was so happy to have the opportunity to stretch myself professionally. [ Reply | More ]

When I was pg, I recall the medical advice being that i could continue to do my normal routine until such time as it became physically uncomfortable. At a certain point you may just need to slow your pace down significantly and maybe supplement with swimming or yoga if too much running becomes too taxing on your body. [ Reply | More ]

I ran the same amount you do. I switched to walking when pg because of nausea. I ran to control my weight. I gained 25lbs from pg. most came off easily. You'll be able to use a stroller for walks or jogs. GL [ Reply | More ]

Talk to your OB. But you may find yourself a lot more more tired and feeling off while pregnant, so even if you can keep doing what you're doing, you might not feel up to it. Look into prenatal yoga too, it's a good low impact workout. [ Reply | More ]

With my first I kept up a routine similar to yours until about 7 months, although by the end it was like 3 miles, 3x week. Month 8 & 9 I did nothing (by choice). Honestly, the much harder part was finding time once the baby arrives. [ Reply | More ]
