Agreed, Quig. Same thing in my house, thermostat generally doesn't go above 62. Socks and a sweatshirt keep me nice and warm! Plus, by the time I've worked all day, gone to the gym, come home and take more »

Thank you for writing this. I'm sending it to my Mom. My sister died in 1997 and as she says, it never goes away, but it does get a little bit easier to find those moments of hope over time. I hope yo more »

Great story about the generosity of others. And the parents/adults who talked about how important it is to look good and self esteem are right! If you look good, you feel good, you work harder, you pu more »

Wonderful story. I work in healthcare too, and have been on the receiving end of some major compassion from my patients. It's a little weird at first, but then I realize it's what they want to do, too more »

Same as scauma, I go just about every day after work. I know if I go home, I'm not going to go back out again to the gym. On days when I am pressed for time, I'll get up early and either go or do a wo more »

Posted 04/05/2011 01:25:00 EDT
My ex husband definitely had a more funky style than I do. I tend to dress a bit more classically, but love to get dressed up. He was more artistic about it, and liked graphics, louder prints/colors, more »

LW, I am very sorry for your loss, and I hope you can find some peace, if you haven't already. I lost my sister when I was 16 and she was 21. If people ask how many siblings I have, I say I have 4 sis more »

There used to be a restaurant in New Orleans called Asian Cajun. Aside from being a bit of a tongue twister, I don't think it's offensive... We moved here to Boston 3.5 years ago from New Orleans. We' more »

I kept my own last name when my husband and I got married. I have also made it clear to him (and he's fine with it) that if we should have children, they will have my last name, as well. This is for 2 more »
