Don't feel bad honey. they make little for what they have to do and put up with... see this: According to the "New York Times," dancing as a Rockette is one of the most secure jobs in New York for a dancer, and the pay rivals Broadway, with Rockettes making around $1,500 a week. It makes an annual salary of $72,800 to $78,000.Nov 15, 2014 [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Looking for advice from BTDT. I want to divorce my husband. To make a long story short he has lied to me and been verbally & mentally abusive since the beginning of our marriage of 10 years. Never in front of the children. He has seen therpaists but it always goes back to how it was. I don't want to live like this anymore. I don't remember what happy is. I have 3 children. We live close to my mom who helps us tons already. I think with some child support I could make it work. I work FT. I just don't know how to do it if that makes sense. I mean I know HOW to do it legally etc, but not how to do it in terms of the children emotionally etc. My oldest has ADD and is extremely sensitive. I worry about how they will be without a strong daily male presence in their life. For all is faults as a husband he is a very good father. Any insight would be helpful. 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

They started over at the desk, I overheard the whole thing - thought they'd just cut ahead by asking the receptionist. But she told them they had to ask the next person in line, which was me. So they came over and asked (but brusquely, KWIM?) and I said just no because the lab was already running late and I needed to get to work. So the DH just kept escalating it - didn't understand what the issue was, their appt was first, he was running late, etc etc. So awkward. [ Reply | More ]
