Re: Bah Humbug ???

Have you talked to your kids about it? Maybe they'd like to take turns hosting a potluck style meal, or have multiple small gatherings, or limit gifting to the grandkids or do a secret santa style thing, or... ? DH and I have 2 kids and we've never done the big familial bash or mounds of gifts thing...

Re: Daily Check In November 14th

All my living biological relatives are French, all but 5 live in France, 2 of them in Paris proper, the rest in the North of the country scattered between Paris and Le Harve. Hollande talks a good game. That said, there's really not that much to be done. Their problem is that the enemy is right ther...

Re: I'm being FB creeped.

Thank you for affirming my personal decision never to exist online in any incarnation of my real name (Sandi is a nickname based on my foreign middle name, my legal first name is a bugger for English speakers to pronounce much less remember how to spell, even though I was born in the USA to an Ameri...

Re: Are there rooms in your house that you don't use? family of 5 living in 850 sq ft house

I just remembered that in Germany we had to go from the 3rd floor to the basement to do laundry. Suddenly the layout here (washer/dryer in a bathroom) doesn't seem so bad...

Re: Are there rooms in your house that you don't use? family of 5 living in 850 sq ft house

Rinty's 850-950 3-bd houses must be designed more functionally than even the apartment we're in now between the houses. I lived at Hahn AFB in Germany in 2-bd 1-bath housing that was laid out better than the 2-bd, 2-bath place we're using now. The apartment in Germany seemed downright spacious and I...

Re: Are there rooms in your house that you don't use? family of 5 living in 850 sq ft house

In the last house our sunroom was a classroom/kids' media room (we homeschool). In the new house the 4th bedroom will be the classroom/kids' media room, as there is no sunroom (won't miss it). The article was interesting to a point. No way would I ask my son to room with my daughter on a long-term b...
