Ignorant kids and parents using our neighborhood for candy without even the common decency of saying thank you or letting the small children pick first, taking more than their share of candy, clearing out the baskets of candy left out instead of just taking a piece or two…and on and on. I've lived here in our neighborhood for some time and I've never seen it like this. Very weird. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] OK, here goes. I love my DH and my 2 DCs. I'm a former WOHM and current SAHM. Older DC is in school full time and is generally a very high-maintenance child. Younger DC is home with me (and only me) all the time and is high-maintenance due to age. The thing is, nothing is ever about me anymore. Nothing. I feel like DH just thinks about work, the house or DCs. It's like I'm a nanny here. He's def not cheating (please don't argue this point). But I just need to vent about the fact that I feel like a second class citizen here who basically lives to serve these three awesome people who I love but I kinda just feel like shit. I know taking the time to hit the gym and do some shopping for myself will help but I'm in a rut and just can't get myself started. thanks for listening. 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] Please help. Who is right here? DH and I have fun friends in for Halloween and we all went with our kids to a neighborhood party and treat-or-treating. There was plenty of food at the party, so while we were drinking wine, we also ate. My DH (for the 100th time) forgot to eat so he came home at 9 p.m. very drunk. I'm sick of this. His parents were both alcoholics and I find his behavior to be odd. Why drink, as an adult, and not eat? He's slurring his words, falling all over, etc. We came home, looked at each other, and I asked what we were going to do for the rest of the night. His answer? TV? I asked why don't we sit and talk with each other (he travels all week, so I am alone 5 night out of 7, and leaves Sunday for London)? He yawned, and then wandered off to bed. I feel I am being taken advantage of. I am attractive, I love to read and travel and I want to have a partner in life. WWYD? 13 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

There are a LOT of people living in kind of a big horseshoe pattern around an area called the Peak District, but compared to London, they are simply ignored. And if you're up in Newcastle, Londoners regard you as stranded Scots or something. You don't exist.

Exactly. What happened to $25,000 a year tuition? Manhattan is a place for the very rich, not the middle class. [ Reply | More ]

Is private school 42k in a lot of other cities? That's what it is in NYC. There is a pretty big difference between 25k and 42k, particularly when you have more than one child. I know a lot of people who would/can pay 25k, but not 42k. [ Reply | More ]

But they aren't making NYC $$. I am sure 25k is a lot for most people elsewhere. Private school is a luxury, not a necessity. JMO. [ Reply | More ]

True re income, but overall their expenses aren't as high either. Everything is expensive in NYC. I absolutely agree that private school is a luxury and not a necessity, BTW. I was just pointing out that it wasn't long ago that tuition here was 25k, and that was doable for a lot more families. [ Reply | More ]

Exactly. Our private (not NYC) is about $29K plus extras (class retreats/camps; not to mention donations). Salaries are not as high as in NYC, so it's still a big bite. [ Reply | More ]

we are in this position with 300k and we have 2 dcs... we will do public. I'd rather save the $ for college/grad school. We'll see if we stick with in but (I know, boo hoo) we really are stuck in the middle... with taxes, retirement, crazy housing costs, and saving for college, 13 years x 45 k x 2 is not in the cards.

Np: we have HHI of 350 and 3 kids. We have 2 older kids at public. I would not do private even with FA for k-5 it's a stupid waste of $$ with this HHI (my dc started MS so I know) [ Reply | More ]

np: We are in same boat. Applying to HS and wondering if we should also look at Catholic schools. I went to a Catholic HS in NYC and it was a great school, but not sure it's the right place for my dd. But at least tuition is manageable (other than MM and CSH). [ Reply | More ]

Yes, I've done it. Loved it, but I'm open to that sort of thing and believe it can work. If you don't think it can work, I wouldn't bother trying it. You're not going to see big, dramatic changes if you do it, IMO. It's more of a subtle thing. I use it when I feel like I need to get really clear on something - a decision I've made, an experience I've had. I feel like I flush out any negativity I have/had around something and am able to move forward more easily afterwards. [ Reply | More ]
