[ - ] No kids yet, but I realized today I could never be a SAHM because once the kids were in school all day, I would become a full-blown alcoholic. I woke up this morning at 6 (without alarm), took my dog for a walk, went to the gym, got breakfast, cleaned my apartment, sent out my laundry and dry cleaning, went grocery shopping. Now I feel like the only thing left to do for the day is open a bottle of wine ... 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

It is. I asked her when she graduated college a few years ago if she wanted a watch for graduation, and she told me "no one wears watches anymore, just start a Roth IRA for me" which is why I can't stop giggling over this. [ Reply | More ]

So funny! I stopped wearing a watch years ago because the time was on my phone, as well as on every electronic device around. Now watches are being rediscovered, I guess. [ Reply | More ]

s/o A couple of years ago our teenage DD's phone battery died and she came home with a "great idea" - phone companies should have phones available around the city that you can just borrow for five minutes for a dollar. [ Reply | More ]

Yes, or by modifying (refinancing) or setting up a payment plan. If you offer to pay half what is owed, you have a good chance of being reinstated. Do it sooner than later though. [ Reply | More ]

Unlikely bank will agree to half, but depends on what property is worth. If property is worth more than mortgage amount, they will NOT agree. [ Reply | More ]

No, I meant if property is worth more than mortgage, they will NOT agree to reduction of mortgage balance. OP will be evicted when bank satisfies all legal requirements. If property is worth much LESS than mortgage, bank MAY agree (depending on how badly underwater). [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] A little worried. DC hasn't had solid poop three times out of five for the past week; it's liquid, spreads out, and is toxic smelling. Seems fine otherwise and is well hydrated. Whenever I'm determined to take DC to the doctor, it's suddenly solid again. What to do? 10 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Does he complain of stomach pains? Can you link the liquid stools to any particular foods? [ Reply | More ]

No complaints at all, which is why I'm so vexed. DC has been eating a little less than normal, too. [ Reply | More ]

In that case, I'd wait another week. If you suspect a food sensitivity, try eliminating that food for a few days and then introducing it again. It's possible that DC has a mild case of food poisoning, but I'm not sure that fits with the liquid stools happening intermittently. [ Reply | More ]

You might call the doctor and ask if you should collect a sample of the loose stool for testing. I take it your DC is in diapers? [ Reply | More ]

Promise yourself a reward (quiet coffee out with book, massage, etc)? Blast your favorite music or start a new podcast. Set the timer for 15 minutes; once you get started, momentum will carry you on. Don't let your sense of accomplishment be diluted by resentment over dh's laziness. Why aren't you speaking? Is this normal? [ Reply | More ]

Leave town for an exotic locale for a week, enjoy some peace and quiet, and get motivated to clean the garage. I don't agree with the posters who say you need to tell DH to watch the kids. They're his kids too and he needs to tune in. [ Reply | More ]

You just motivated me, maybe I can motivate you - my garage needs an overhaul this summer. It was used all last summer by my son and his friends as a hangout space, then I had a parent pass away and all their things showed up, and before I could get through all of it, the 6 feet of snow happened. I am giving myself until Sept. 1 to get it cleared up. Your post made me go down and do 3 solid bags of trash to go out on Monday. [ Reply | More ]
