    42 here, with a four month old sleeping on me as I type. It was brutally hard for me to get and stay pregnant (started trying at 38), but I met The Guy later in life, so it was what it was, you know?...

    I use these and a set of pedals similar to the ones linked above. The shoes run a bit big, IME. The Amazon link has some decent info on their write-up and the reviews.

    Some good advice above! I'll add that I like flat pedals and 5.10 bike shoes (really sticky on the bottom) MUCH better than clipping in. I came to the sport in my late 30s and just couldn't get the...

    LOL jennyhoo on the pee clock. Word! And, same here--that 20 minute drive felt verrry long when the time came (and was followed by most of a day before DS joined us).

    New first-time mom here, and I'd vote for the closer doctor, who sounds plenty competent and reassuring, especially since you'll have the city option if things get questionable. Toward the end of...

    Yep. As others have mentioned, a good fit is imperative. Mine is also a writer, so she knows not to make me *too* sane. But she's seen me out of a bad relationship, into a good one, and now is...

    I don't expect him to read my mind.

    I try to remember that he's generally the same horse every day, so if I want to kill him for breathing my air, I should probably try eating a Snickers first. ...

    Thanks KayBee--the stress leading up to the procedure was worse than the actual surgery, and while they were in there, I had a tubal, so that ends *that* conversation! I do think my doctor is...

    Sorry to say, I'm recovering from having had laparoscopic surgery last week after my doctor inserted a Mirena straight through my uterine wall and into my abdominal cavity.

    I got a second, more cuddly cat. FeralCat is very grateful that I've stopped trying to snuggle her, and has actually thawed enough to sit six inches away from my feet on the ottoman. I still wouldn't...

    When the discussion of a sofa purchase includes, as a key component, making sure that the new room layout doesn't interfere with the window hammocks or the cat-tree-to-kitty-shelf jumping vector.

    Je t'adore! Hubby, who is a Deadliest Catch junkie, got me into him, and then I discovered MikeRoweWorks and his Facebook posts. This one had me laugh-crying: ...

    Ditto MyGiantPony. We had our JP ceremony at a historic house's garden and then went down the street for a BBQ held in the event room at the local Portuguese Club. Super inexpensive and we got great...

    I took up mountain biking. It's a fun way to be out on the trails and get the occasional adrenaline rush (though not required), has some of the same basics (joints loose, eyes up, make your mistakes...

    I'm a new mom, and just had friends visiting who have three kids, 14 to 24. I asked when they thought hubby and I would stop constantly checking to see if the baby was breathing, and their answer...

    I lisped for about a week with Invisalign, but then got used to it. And like Simkie said, you can pop out the plates as needed.

    Thanks, Canaqua! We're a little south of you, and have hesitated because of exactly this concern. Great to hear some real boots-on-the-ground experience of it working.

    Just a couple of days shy of 42 here, and moving out of my Invisaligns and into my permanent retainer. So happy I did it! A very good use of six grand (five for the Invisalign, another grand to fix...
