[ - ] Last week, there were posts saying it was extremely rare to be shutout and no one had heard of this. I had posted that this is false, and many families do get shut out. Families with all rejects/WLs, what is your plan? 2 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] My mom is visiting. She has this quality where when she wants something she wants it immediately. She brought a picture for my eldest and was asking for nail and hammer to out it up. I was in the middle of putting 2 younger kids to bed and said that I couldn't get it now. She sent oldest to dh who told dc that he was busy. Then my mom went to dh...I got frustrated and raised my voice at her. She flipped, left our house...wouldn't pick up. Now she isn't talking to me. I sent her a text with apology (since she want picking up) but in it I also told her that she needs to be patient sometimes. She is not talking to me now. Even though I did raise my voice which I shouldn't have done her reaction (I think) is just way over the top. WWYD? 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I know they originally settled for trade but couldn't they move more inland and build their city? It's the worst city to get in and out of with bridges, tunnels, antiquated highways. London did it right. Millions of people are squeezed on this little island. I feel like it'll collapse in this century. 26 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
