    I finally saw this movie last night. It was totally different than what I thought it would be. I was disappointed. I do love Denzel though. He's great in this.

    I have one of those too. I've had it for almost a decade. It looks brand new and it's the only purse I've used. I can't seem to even scuff it up. It looks great and I've never done anything to...

    I wear scruffy clothes at home and save my nicer ones for errands and leaving the house. I'm a spiller. If I wear nice clothes around the house, they will invariably be stained. DH is the same...

    I don't mind e-cards if it's in newsletter form. A generic e-card though? No thanks.

    My favorite cards are the ones with family photos. We do those every year and people seem to like them.

    Congrats to your DD Fawn! Chicago was a tough school to get in 25 years ago, I can only imagine how much more competitive it is now. I hope the FAFSA brings good news. :)

    Indoor plumbing is the best. I remember touring a old mansion from the mid-1800's and they had an indoor "toilet." It was so gross- it wasn't plumbed and the whole thing was carpeted. Yuck. It's...

    Thanks for the replies. I'm mostly looking at the church preschools. They are the most reasonable (around 200-250/mo). A lot of the other ones seem to function more as daycare.
