[ - ] Reality check me here. The past year has been very hard for a number of reasons, and I'm exhausted this week. DH totally forgot Valentine's Day (not even a card), and the only time we've been out in a year was when I went to a work function with him. Last night, he announced he was going to an expensive restaurant with some friends. Depressed, I said I was going to bed, and he could at least get the kids in bed first. I woke up at 9pm to my toddler wandering around the house crying... in sum, DH was worried he'd be late for dinner, so stuck all kids in front of TV, knowing I was upstairs exhausted and asleep. They could have wandered outside in the cold! I'm ready for divorce court at this point. 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Both seem overpriced to me. Also, the Madison one is way over the top with the edgy contemporary fixtures and cabinets. I like contemporary, but if you ever want to sell and get your money out of renos, you need to have a more transitional style. Another thing: That eat in kitchen seems very narrow. Could be the dining chairs, but look at the measurements. [ Reply | More ]

That first one is HIDEOUS!!! The second one is nice. How is the location? It's been a while since I lived in NYC. [ Reply | More ]
General Topics 02.28.15, 03:28 PM Flag

Both excellent locations next the park, although the location for the second one is more "prime" in the sense that it is a lot more expensive to acquire lots there. The two retail stores downstairs were purchased for close to $80mm before improvement (raw space) a couple years back according to streeteasy. The whole area now is filled with $10mm 3-bedroom condos. It's within walking distances to midtown, easy for lots of schools, etc. But the first one is very nice that is has a neighborhood feel with a lot less businesses. And because the lot there is much cheaper, life is easier in the way that you can find pizza/diner/convenient store/etc. nearby. The second one is too expensive to have those things around.

I bfeed him and he stays in our bed slurping away until 4am, I can't sleep. Around 4am, he plops off, and I get a little sleep from 4-6. I go to bed at 11. Both of my eyes are twitching, my teeth hurt, and I get out of bed with a horrible hung over feeling. But the eye twitching is the worst, it is noticeable and looks ridiculous in client meetings. We tried letting him cry last night, he cried for 1 hr. any advice? PLEASE don't say -- hang in there, it will pass.
