Re: Calling all the Pregnant PS''ers

I love seeing all these sweet newborns! I've been MIA, hubby has been deployed so I have been keeping myself super busy and visiting family. I have had pretty bad MS, I even sometimes get it now at 19 weeks. I haven't gained any weight, though I will admit I had a few pounds to lose pre-pregnancy. M...

Re: The Official TTC Thread!

I am cautiously dipping my toe in the water. This is our second cycle trying and I'm currently 10 DPO. I do feel like we learned more this cycle, because I started with OPKs for the first time, and I ovulate much earlier than I thought I would, CD9. I absolutely can't hate the waiting! One moment I'...

Re: Foster homes for pets of deployed military personnel

This is awesome! My husband is in the Air Force and about to leave on his first deployment. While I'm only going home for a short time when he leaves this time, I can imagine down the road if he has longer deployments and we have kids, it would be nice to stay with my parents for a few months.

Re: Wedding dilemma...WWYD?

When I'm facing a decision like this, I try to think about what I will think about my choice 10 years from now. What do you think you will regret more? Missing work or missing the wedding.

Re: Do you own a second home?

We own two. When we bought our house in Oklahoma we always intended to rent it out when we left. So, we bought our current house in NJ this summer and are currently leasing out the old house in OK.

Re: IYO...is owning pets a luxury?

Yes. I had a FB friend who was constantly moaning about her finances, but then kept picking up pets for a few months and then had to get rid of them when she hit a financial road block. It made me crazy and I had to de-friend.

I don't think you share blood supply until you are 6 weeks along. You should be fine!

Re: Escrowed tax bill

Re: Death sentence for Boston bomber.

I go back and forth.

Do I have a problem with him being sentenced to death? No.

But I really wish he'd have to rot in a cell with pictures of the bleeding victims wallpapering his walls.

Re: Which kitchen would you prefer?

I agree with all of what momhappy has said! The hardest part of making all of these decisions is that your personal style and taste should matter very little. Don't spend more money to give it your own flair, if it's less expensive to get something neutral and attractive to home buyers. As far as gr...

I'm currently on a light fixture kick. The day we moved in I knew we'd be swapping out almost every one in the house. I hate this one in my kitchen.
