My friend has a chocolate and a black lab. I am partial toward the chocolate lab because she always wants to be with me. The black lab is very cute, too, but he's more independent. Recently, he had to go for surgery for ACL tears in his hind legs. I didn't know this was a thing, but apparently it is a common problem with labs. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I'm still perplexed by this whole garbage can debate. What are you putting in your garbage that is so horribly smelly? Outside of chicken or fish or something like that (in which case I would immediately take out the garbage in any case), what is so stinky? If I cut fresh veggies for a salad, there's hardly any waste and what is left doesn't smell anyway. Napkins, paper, junk mail. What is making your garbage so smelly?! 26 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

So take it out on the second day. Easy. And I have news for you--if it is sitting in your can with a lid, the smell wafts out every time you open the lid. Its the same thing. [ Reply | More ]

The bug issue was my other question! Is that a city thing? I don't ever have bugs, flies or gnats in my kitchen. But yes, if I had a chute in the hallway, I would toss it daily for sure.

We have a lot of stinky trash. We have a stainless steel can in the kitchen and the main garbage can in a small garage off the kitchen (the cars are in a large garage on the other side of the house). Anything that could get stinky in 3 days (trash pick up on Wednesdays and Saturdays) goes in the large garbage can in the garage, usually wrapped up in a recycled plastic bag so we don't gag. In recent days, I tossed a tough salmon skin from a side of smoked salmon, salmon skins from barbecues, orange peels, fibrous vegetable peels that won't go down the garbage disposal properly, etc. [ Reply | More ]

I think it's crazy to think that the way you try to raise your children is completely divorced from your own experience growing up. We don't exist in a vacuum--you're not going to completely ignore your experience of being a child and being part of a family. And I think that the intentions are very deliberate even if the results sometimes aren't--some parents may have to work for a living but if they think being a SAH parent is important, they will work something out that comes closest to that ideal.
