[ - ] I need to cut my expenses and will need to cut nanny's hours. Do you think she will be less P/O if I offer 4 full days or 3 full days and 2 half days? 2 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Neither. You plan cut to her pay by how much a week is what she will be focused on? She won't be able to get a job 2 half days a week unless your giving up afternoons, then maybe. The 1 day is useless. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Stopped using shampoo and only use conditioner now, maybe once a week. It's gross for a few days, but holy crap does it work well. My hair is better than it has ever been. 1 Reply [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Yeah, I grew up being told that hair had to be washed every day. About ten years ago I overslept and had to run to work without washing my hair, and it was the best hair day ever. I started leaving more days between shampoos. Now I only shampoo once a week, and just rinse it on gym days. My scalp is healthy, and my hair is soft & manageable. I really want to go back in time and give my past-mother a good talking-to before she ruins high school for past-me. [ Reply | More ]

Huh? I actually love to bake and cook because I grew up with a mom who insisted on working, didn't like being a housewife and never made anything more complicated than roast chicken with mashed potato flakes in her life. Sometimes we got hot dogs boiled in water or fried in butter. I don't remember much else because she left my dad for her boss when I was 8 because dad was just a plain old HS teacher. I had two really good friends whose moms were fantastic cooks. They made birthday cakes and decorated them. They had gingerbread houses at Christmas. I loved being at their houses. I went to an Ivy and have a humanities degree, but if I ever go back to school I'm going to take cooking classes. No sororities in my past. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Is there a trick to boiling eggs such that it's easy to remove the shell once you're ready to eat? I boil a bunch at a time and lv in the fridge for quick breakfasts/snacks, but lately it's been impossible to peel off the shells- they're practically glued on, break into a million pieces or large chunks of the white come off w them....
