      mostly to yourselves for the first half hour and by the time your party is over, it'll be crowded. It is not, IMO, a good drop off option unless your kids is extremely dependable or mature--it's open to the public, there's a bar, it's spread out and the kids just run around from machine to machine like maniacs.

    being in the city and near everything. I walk kids to school every morning, walk to work and pick them up after activities a few days a week. I crave a house though. Their rooms are tiny, and we're a block from Central Park but no outdoor space. How to decide? They're also approaching middle school so maybe old to move, though we have to get thru middle and high. So far school has been ok.

    Doctor called me to tell me I 'might want to' look into research on bipolar 2 and borderline personality. I did, and bingo! But why do I still feel the brunt of his verbal abuse of years past? It's been a decade of awful verbal abuse. but the diagnosis hasn't madd me feel better. If anything I feel sickened. Anyone have any experience to share? Thank you...

  24. New York City We share bank accts we do..recently i opened my own checking and have dd from work to keep it fee-free; I transfer my check into our joint acct immediately. (WE NEED THE MONEY)...(more) 10-28-2014 5:06pm (2 replies)
    and then I decided to keep any OT I got in my acct and sort of treat it like a Vacation Fund. As a surprise I could say hey we can go there! I only get 100 OT each month so today I was paying some bills and DH is home and sees this acct and FREAKS OUT. Huge fight. Thing is I told him about it and he acts like I was dishonest. Was I???
