    I joke with DH that I would like to go to a restaurant once a year. Since we've moved up here, we just don't go often, because unless we drive 30 minutes to Burlington, our choices of restaurants...

    My MIL was a fastidious housekeeper but in her later years she slipped a little and one year never took down her Christmas wreath. That year, she had to have home health care, and the person who came...

    This is very bizarre behavior, and it does seem like some kind personal vendetta. I agree that whatever you can do to protect yourself legally, do it.

    I hate my electric baseboard heating. Our electric bill was $500 a month for 4 months. And this house is less than 700 sq. ft, AND we use our wood stove every day in the winter. It's ridiculous. I...

    Age 0-3: A little Cape Cod that the State purchased from my parents to make way for the "new" I-95 in CT.
    Age 3-21-ish: Another Cape Cod, same town and that's where I grew up. Went to college and...

    Progressive is definitely a functioning ideology--look at the early part of the 20th century. Teddy Roosevelt was a Progressive AND a Republican. Fancy that!

    And yesterday's Progressive platform...

    Rosa, I respectfully disagree. There are many extraordinary Catholic women. As for myself, even though I am totally lapsed, I "identify" as Catholic on a cellular level. I do not practice because I...

    (I feel like I'm mud wrestling now... it's hard being a modern, independent woman AND apologist for the Catholic Church.)

    I definitely see homes as a form of self-expression. I think that's why I hate shows on HGTV: they are ALL beige, the furniture is ALL out of Wayfair or a place like that. The owners/buyers only want...

    The artist's home: Boy, that gives me such hope for sticking to color and quirky!! Why, oh, why can't Hilary Farr and Joanna Gaines be as inspirational?? It makes me realize that...

    I do like Countryview, but I also find Homestead appealing. Mostly I like the picture in Homestead that shows a wine refrigerator in the office area! That's the way to work from home! :)

    I'm sticking with "partner" on that one. Honestly, I think that term is the most universal in this day and age. "Significant other" seems outdated. "Good Friend" is not explicit enough....

    I think it's like if you're introducing your "SO/partner" at a party or if you're referring to them without using their name. In those cases, I would pick something short. I think "partner" is fine.

    No. I would hope that we wouldn't get too uppity. But there should/can be plenty of labor to go around if white Americans or brown Mexicans or brown Indians want it. The thing is, the immigrants are...
