[ - ] I am reading a phenomenal book by a Nigerian author called Americanah. As i read it I wish all those racist moms from UB would read it to get an insight into Nigerian society (yes, with tiger moms!) and have much more respect for the driver or toilet cleaner that may have way more education than them but just worse circumstances. Its also a great love story. 11 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] I checked the search function but couldn't find any threads...has there been any follow-up to the Ashley Madison situation? I didn't search the list because, I don't know, it felt too unseemly, but my husband did (evidently, they all did in his office) and found a few friends' husbands. I can't stop thinking about them. Wondering if they searched/found out or what couples will do. I imagine the list will spawn quite a few divorces. Sad. (Not sad that the men were exposed, just kind of pathetic in general. These woman are really lovely.) 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Someone was on there posing as me for a lot of it but here's my main issue - my own kids are younger than them (5&3) and if I let niece and nephew eat pasta for every single meal (which I could although it would still mean I have to cook something different for them), my kids see that and think they can eat pasta for every meal. Or that it's ok to throw a fit if they don't like what is served (as 8yo niece did). They are with us for another week so it isn't like its just one or two meals. 14 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Rob Lowe as the cheeseball police officer whose 3 wives all went missing while married to him. Also, the Lacey and Scott Peterson movie...although it's so sad. But his girlfriend Amber is just so stupid that it's entertaining. Feel Better Sunshine. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] We are having a moving company pack up our apartment in a few weeks. I've never done this before, and they have not been all that forthcoming about how to prepare. Do they literally just come in and scoop everything up and leave? Do you have to have it organized in a certain way? And how long does it take? We have a 2br, and not really all that much stuff, plus light on furniture (one queen bed, a small dining table and chairs, and a smallish sofa is the bulk of it, plus the crib). Thanks. 12 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

just went through this. we also had 2 bedroom and not much stuff….took about 3-4 hrs. had 4 guys come to pack and move everything. some of them were more meticulous about packing than the others. just direct them with certain packing things i.e. cords for tv etc make sure you know where they packed it, and let them know which items are fragile, etc for the most part we were pleased with our experience. only 1 box didn't reach our final destination (but nothing really important was in that box) [ Reply | More ]

You don't have to do anything to prepare. Just pack up what you will need for the transition. I would recommend packing up ALL bathroom items - my last packers threw everything in one big box - ie extra tubes of toothpaste with toilet bowl cleaner, etc. When we moved from our 2 bed, 2 bath apt it took them about 5 hours to pack.

We are never home to eat with kids so I make a few things for them on weekend and sitter heats it up. I make different things for me and DH when I get home from work. I make when tthe kids like because it is easy and they usually get home and are starving so i don't want sitter to deal with good battles. 17 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

My dh works early -- as in, gets to work at 8, leaves at 5, so home by about 5:30 and I work PT so I can make an early dinner most nights. When possible, we all eat the same thing. Otherwise if dh has to work late, I'll eat with the kids. We *try* to all eat the same thing to make my life easier but I offer them more sides and less sauces, if that makes sense? My kids are still young though so they are super hungry after school even if they have a snack. [ Reply | More ]

DC eats at 6. Usually heats up whatever I planned the night before. When he's eating, I cook for Dh and myself. Set aside a portion for DC for next day. We eat after DC is in bed, usually around 8:30pm. Planning the week out is the key. Also freeze lots of stuff on weekend like sauces, meatballs etc. [ Reply | More ]

No, not by himself, he eats in kitchen right next to me. I get to talk to him throughout. Yes, it's leftover most of the time, but that's the best I can do with our schedule. He does homework, eats, bath, read, sleep. He's hungry around 6. I used to give him snacks, but that mess up dinner, or he will delay dinner time then mess up bedtime. [ Reply | More ]
