[ - ] We are out at beach house. House in Westchester has a pool. DH thinks it is OK to give ex a key so she can take SD to pool and they can use bathroom. SD is 15 and does not really need supervision. DH says ex has integrity and all she needs is bathroom. Am I being out of line? 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Wow the SD should be able to use her dads pool and bathroom. And at this age she should have a key to the house herself too. Give SD a key and stop freaking out about if the ex would come in your house to use the bathroom. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] This has been a good year for us. HHI up 9%, rent FREEZE for 1 year. Ladies: I know it's way too long-term, but grab a rent-stab apartment if you can. Compound interest is heaven with investments, but it can be a b*tch as a renter. Best of luck locking in housing costs as low as possible!!! Young people like me need a ton of savings to take care of our own retirement instead. 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] Dh is a SAHP. He told me that he was taking the DCs today to an optometrist, who is the father of a friend of ours and rather distinguished, lots of fancy awards, whatever...it's an eye exam, so we don't exactly need the best of the best. DH says that it'll cost $120 per child. I told him this is outrageous because every other place only charges $50. He says that this doctor is legit and he doesn't want to deal with someone up-selling him glasses. I say no and he takes them to this optometrist anyhow and I'm so upset with him. He is so cavalier with money because he's not ht one earning it. Also, he made a salad with goat cheese and he knows how much I hate goat cheese, but he claims that he didn't know it was goat cheese.
