    I have a safety vest that I wear while riding on the flat on any horse that's even slightly fractious. I have a bad back (broke it in a fall), so I really cannot be falling off. Of course, horses are...

    I'm very pale (dang German skin) and did a little bit of bed-tanning when I was in High School. Then I got a little older, and started to worry about skin cancer and being wrinkly. I'm actually a...

    I feel the same way. My desk is the first one by the door in our small office, so I am the one that gets to send them away. The good ones usually just listen when I say no (politely of course!), give...

    That sucks, but don't beat yourself up too much. I did that same thing ordering some breeches from TOTD. I had just moved and flip-flopped my billing address (old house) with my shipping address (new...

    I'm completely moved out of the apartment. Now I have to meet up with him to "talk" this afternoon. I am so dreading seeing him, as I know it's going to mess with my heart badly. I keep telling...

    Ugh, you're right. If we get sent to collections for an unpaid termination fee, or if we get evicted because he stays but doesn't pay rent, it probably would not affect him that much (just another...

    "Schooling first level" does not mean schoolmaster to me. A schoolmaster is a been-there, seen-that horse that absolutely knows the drill of whatever they are a schoolmaster of. If you ask them to do...

    One the post-dated check issue...From what I understand there's nothing stopping a post-dated check from being cashed before the date. I have had a post-dated check for board cashed early. It was...

    Yes. He has a very good heart, and many good qualities. That's why I love him. He never begrudged me and time I spent on my hobbies, and he made me so happy. But like any human being he has his...

    Everyone- thank you so much. Your words mean a great deal to me. Posting to COTH truly is therapeutic.

    The ex wants to remain friends, possibly keep the place together, says he still loves me,...

    Just to clarify from my original, he does have a full-time job. It's just a crappy, low-paying job that he hates. He's been too lazy and unmotivated to really work at applying for something better,...

    Humor is definitely one of my favorite coping strategies. Somehow, one of the contacts in my phone mysteriously changed to "Giant Douche" last night, which makes me giggle while I cry.

    You are entirely right about him, and about the situation in generally. I can do better. I just wish there was a switch I could flip, to make me stop loving him. :(

    I would so love to hear stories...
  14. I just got dumped- Tell me how to survive a painful breakup

    I need some advice, and words of encouragement. On Tuesday night, my boyfriend of 2 1/2 years broke up with me. I am heartbroken, devastated, and not sure how I will move on. He was my best friend. I...

    I guess I'm just odd then! I figure it's kind of like grabbing an electric fence to see how strong it is. You wonder, and then you try it once, get fried, and never again. I liked the suggestion on...

    Is anyone else just a little tempted to try the Haribo Sugar Free Gummi Bears (or, as one reviewer called them, "Satan's Diarrhea Hate Bears)? I'm a little curious if they're as bad as people say...

    I will definitely agree that driving/taking a train as an alternative once can be a good way to get over a reluctance to fly! My boyfriend does not like flying, and we had a wedding to go to last...

    My dad was a Navy pilot, and spent most of his career as a FAA Flight Ops Inspector, so he did check rides on a lot of commercial flights, and investigated a lot of accidents. I think that just about...

    Good luck! I am trying the same thing with my 25 year old TB. I didn't really intend to retire him, but his beloved pasture buddy (also mine) had to be retired due to an injury a year and a half ago....

    I've never been and have absolutely no desire to go, but I did just read a creepy article about the bodies that have been left up there (100+), because it's too dangerous to get them down. Apparently...
