    My ex fiance had 50/50 custody of his teenager with his ex-wife. In my opinion, their set up was about the worst thing for the child. There was huge inconsistency between the "rules" of each...

    At my house, if it's green I mow it and call it a lawn. Unless it's on my driveway, in which case I mow it on the shortest setting on the mower and then drive on it.

    Last year I had to euthanize one of my dogs. The vet came to my home, it was a beautiful sunny day and we sat out in the yard under the willow tree. I sat down with my sick dog resting his head on my...

    The guy who told me, on our first and only date, that it was a good thing I had a horse and was competing now, because I wouldn't be able to do that after I was married and had kids. He even said he...

    Let go of the "great guy" you know this man could be. He is choosing not to be that guy.

    It is hard to come to grips with, but you fell in love with a fictional character created by this guy.

    Does it bother you because you are not getting what you need from your lesson? Or because you have a thing about texting?

    My trainer will occasionally check her phone during a lesson - usually if...

    I look at the Pre Purchase Exam as more information to consider in my decision to buy a horse, not pass/fail. I've passed on a horse that the vet said would need maintenance but would be easy to...

    The OP and her SO want to be able to visit her mother in what is probably her mother's last couple of years of life. It's about much more than what "daddy" thinks.

    I've seen people wait too long also, and it's always from good intentions but not good for the horse. Am totally with you for not wanting to wait until they can't get back up again some day - that's...

    "Convenience" euthanasia is better than sending a horse to auction or selling to the first person who answers your Craiglist ad.

    I think love is real.

    I think some people use the word love for things that I would not consider love - the unhealthy attachments that bind people to abusers, for example.

    I think some people...

    His relationship with her is at least as phoney as his relationship with you was. He's likely incapable of being real.

    It's very good that you are taking things slowly with the old flame.

    I was in a similar situation a few years back (except he was the one getting divorced, I was single). It was easy to fall...

    Funny thing is, the people who are against the rape culture are the most respectful of men. We do not believe men are victims of their biology and unable to control themselves. We do not believe they...

    If you want to preserve your relationship with your supervisor, don't go over her head.

    Honestly, it's probably best for you if you just do your work and let your coworker deal with her workload.

    In my last horse search I had a vet that I used for a couple of pre-purchase exams. It wasn't my regular vet, but they are a VERY good lameness vet, specialize only in sport horse medicine so they...

    Instead of say "I want to do xyz" you could say "I could contribute more, are there any other tasks you would like me to take on". Or "would you like me to do xyz?". That way your supervisor may not...
