Re: How much autonomy did you have growning up?

My parents were pretty laid back in many ways. In my family, we worked together to get a job done. My sister and I were expected to help around the house (inside and out) with whatever my parents assigned to us. We didn't get an allowance because my parents didn't believe in paying us for the chores...

Re: What shows have you recently binge watched?

I knew I was forgetting something. We're caught up now, but we started binge watching The Good Wife, and it's so good! Thanks for the reminder, Missy!

Re: What shows have you recently binge watched?

I'd like to begin watching Modern Family but I can't find the first season on On Demand or Hulu. Another show I'd love to check out is Mr. Selfridge. I love Jeremy Piven.

Re: What shows have you recently binge watched?

Missy, your comment about Billions made me laugh because that's how my husband and I feel. I really want to like it because I really like all of the actors, but I find the show hard to follow and understand.

Re: What shows have you recently binge watched?

We watched a few episodes of House of Cards this weekend. We also began watching Blue Bloods a couple of months ago. We're in season 2 now and it's really good. Other shows we've binged and loved: Parks and Recreation, The West Wing, Downton Abbey, Happy Valley, Doc Martin, The Fosters, and Scott an...

We buy Blue Buffalo [Naturally Fresh] or occasionally, Swheat Scoop. We like the natural stuff. Both clump well, they're flushable, I think, and there's very little, if any, dust with both brands.

Re: Do you have a housekeeper?

I've wanted a housekeeper for years. DH, being in law enforcement, was strongly against it. He's taken too many reports revolving housekeepers and theft. Well, with two little kids and another on the way, working full time, PLUS teaching a college course, I basically said I'm not cleaning anymore. ...

Re: A Book(s) Thread

I recently read Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight and Before You by JoJo Moyes. I just began After You, the sequel to Before You. It's good so far. I'm looking for others to read, so I'll have to go back a few pages and see what's been recommended.

Re: What is your favorite dog breed?

It's hard to pick my absolute most favorite breed, but my parents' Lhasa apso is pretty awesome. He's the perfect combination of soft and fluffy, cuddly and friendly, and he's not yappy at all. For some reason, I'm drawn to a few terriers: soft-coated wheatons, Norfolk/Norwich, and westies. My husba...

Re: Least Favorite Household Chore

We hired a cleaning service to clean our house every 2 weeks. We do the in between/daily stuff, but it helps us so much and it's worth every penny.

We don't put our cats elsewhere - they're free to roam around as usual. They're very skittish though, so they hide for the duration of most guests' visits.

Re: Did your life turn out how you expected?

Asscherlover, I hear you on the student loan and house issue.

I began drinking iced coffee about 20 years ago, and now I like hot coffee as well.

I don't put sugar or sweetener in it, only extra skim milk or almond milk sometimes. I l...

Ireland, definitely. My husband would love to move there tomorrow if he could. Of the countries on your list, CJ, hmm, I think I'd pick Greece because it's so beautiful. I'm not sure why but I'm not interested in visiting Asia. There are so many places I'd love to see, it would be a hard choice!
