Just plan ahead as much as you can. It's like airfare now where the fares are dynamic, the earlier out the better. I follow Amtrak on Facebook and get their email alerts when they're having sales. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Moms with Db (10 months in our case) and older dc (elementary age in our case) - how often do you have sex with DH? This morning I was in the kitchen telling dh "we don't..." (have any milk) and he cut me off "have sex anymore!!!" and gave me a stare. It's maybe once a month now? I SAHM but am so tired and baby sleeps in our bedroom.

[ - ] Feeling sorry for myself. After a symptom free pregnancy my chronic pain is back and raging. If I go back on the medication that works I will have to stop breastfeeding, db is only 4 weeks old. I think I owe it to the rest of the family to medicate, 3yo is having screen time until DH comes home early from work to help me. Feeling like such a failure to everyone. Pain is inconsistent so part of me thought I could tough it out without meds but days like this and the ripple effect on the family aren't worth it to continue breastfeeding. 8 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

You will get in a new routine. I breastfed but also did formula and thought it was a million times easier. Just keep mini containers with predispensed formula and a bottle with the correlating amount of water. Then when db is hungry you are always ready to feed her. As newborns they eat all the time, but within a month or two will only be eating 5-5x a day. [ Reply | More ]

Well there are brand new guidelines for the medication saying I could continue breastfeeding "at my own risk". It's an immunosuppressant so it's not something I want to risk passing to the baby. It would also mess with her vaccinations (there are certain ones she couldn't get if I'm on the medication and breastfeeding her) which is another risk I don't want to take. I can take painkillers but that's just masking the symptoms while the disease rages on... [ Reply | More ]

I've never felt out of place nor has anyone ever been rude to me because we don't, for example, own a second home or take amazing vacations. We lead a very "regular" life.

Here's the kicker, they're not going to vote. A little piece of me wants to win just to see the v Sanders justification of not voting and the trump voters face when they discover he's a closet democrat. [ Reply | More ]

"they're not going to vote" Who isn't going to vote? I know tons of Bernie supporters, they are all going to vote, just NOT for Hillary Clinton. [ Reply | More ]

It's that incessantly wagging finger and "I told you so" tone. He'd been my husband, we would have had a gardening "accident" long ago to deal with that finger. [ Reply | More ]

They are annoying? Well maybe just the supporters, all the hardcore Bernie fans are early 20s idealists who have no idea of how the world works just like Bernie! I don't hate Bernie but I don't think he would make an effective President. [ Reply | More ]

I would actually say the same of Trump--no idea how the political world works. But I prefer Sanders vision over Trump's. [ Reply | More ]

His vision is fine and good but he seems so rude and unable to talk about anything but Wall Street... big business isn't the only issue in the world today. Plus, the whole income tax thing seems so hypocritical. You just know they aren't as poor as they first appeared to be... [ Reply | More ]

Same with Trump--he's rude too. I never took him for "poor", but he's not in the campaign donations the way HRC and DT are. [ Reply | More ]

My DC at 41 for the 5th yr. Active well-funded PTA. Great lunch menu. Weekly farmer's market. Good chess program. No music.:( Lots of science. Reading/Writing program is terrific. Math not so much. Some excellent teachers ... and some no-so-great. Not much diversity. "Most white" public school in Manhattan according to NYT. Most have tutors. 1 CTT class per grade. Not much enrichment for excelling kids. Y afterschool is no good. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Pros and Cons of this deal.... two family home, in a great town, walking distance to stores, tenants each pay $1500, and want to stay. 2.5 acres of beautiful, flat land. Could even build another house on it, with the approvals, etc. Taxes 7500; insurance 1500; lawn care $80 per week. Can buy it for $475:, put down 25%, mortgage of 4.5%, monthly comes to about $2600. Pros: Building equity, own nice land, etc. Cons: need to be a landlord, tying up our downpayment, which may or may not be better used in another investment (the market? maybe?) your thoughts???? 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Cons: too much land for a two family rental. Unlikely you will ever use it yourself. Q: is there a market to convert to single family? Is it worth the expense [ Reply | More ]
