  • Cheap online printed birthday party invites for kids?

    I usually use vista print but can't find any designs that fit. Any other ideas welcome! Don't want to pay as much as a tiny prints type place and don't want to do a photo card. Thank you!

  • frenemy from high school 15th reunion?

    I have my high school reunion this weekend. There is a girl who was at one point a close friend but turned on me- who was really awful to me in high school and made part of my time there really miserable. Im a successful happy person now but the thought of her still makes me so angry. I haven't seen her in probably 13 or 14 years and I know she will be there. She has repeatedly friended me on FB which I have ignored. I know its killing her that I ignored her requests. Of course she is now skinny and rich and puts everyone else down from what other people tell me who still see her. I nned some good strategies for what to say to her when she asks me why I ignored her FB requests- and tries to be all friendy friendy with me. I know she will ask me because she is like that and has asked other friends of mine who have run into her. I don't really think too much of her. I have a great happy life and family and seems to petty. I just don't want to look like a blubbering fool. I want a good one or two liner without being a total *****.

  • Is a 6.5 year old (kindergarten) too old for a leap pad?

    We have secured a leap pad from as a potential Christmas gift. But now I am wondering if it is too young for him. I know the ipod touch is more expensive but maybe will have more use in the next couple of years and cheaper apps to add etc. I like the leap pad for the bigger screen and the reading part. He is already a really strong reader.

    I am not really referring to price, just functionality, appropriateness for age etc

    Just looking for someone with experience with both products or reasons why - to help make a purchase decision. In my experience many many 1st and 2nd graders have ipod touches. Just looking for fact based experience on the products. Thanks!

  • Is a 6.5 year old (kindergarten) too old for a leap pad? Should i do ipod touch instead?

    We have secured a leap pad from Toys r us. But now I am wondering if it is too young for him.

  • What animal would slice a (wild) rabbit's head off and leave both the head and body behind?

    We live in a densely populated suburb in the northeast. We have a few wild rabbits that come in and out of our yard regularly. We found one in the middle of the yard with the head sliced clean off but the entire body and head were still there- not eaten or anything. I don't believe it was done by a human as our gates into the yard were locked and they are wild rabbits that run all over- not easy to catch. It looked like something with very sharp claws/nails that sliced it open? It left all parts of the rabbit behind so i don't think raccoon or fox? There have been some coyotes in the area but I think they would eat it all ? It was a good sized rabbit- don't think a regular cat could take it down.

    Any ideas?

  • How do I make scrambled eggs without all the liquid inside?

    I cook the eggs thoroughly on a low heat for a long time- like a 3 or 4 heat so they don't turn brown but are cooked through. I have even pressed down several times to get all the liquid out. If they were just scrambled on a plate it wouldn't even bother me but I like to put them in a wrap/burrito style and the liquid all comes out the end. I know they are cooked enough and it doesn't seem to be a problem if I put it on toast or a bagel but something about putting it in a wrap makes tons of liquid come out the bottom- even if I let them cool/steam off. Any ideas? Thanks~

  • confused- early LH surge?

    had a little bit of bleeding 11 days ago (12/26) which lasted about a day or two- was about the time I was expecting my period. This is only my second cycle since a miscarriage in Oct so wasn't really sure when it was coming. The spotting/small amt of bleeding for 2 days tops and then nothing for 4 or 5 days and then bleeding started again more like a normal period and quite heavy- this started on 1/1. Now I just got a positive LH test which would either be CD day 5 or CD day 12- depending on what you count as the 1st day of the period (12/26 or 1/1).

    Last month i didn't detect any LH surge testing 1x a day. Now I tested 2x a day and had a lot of CM and got a negative in the am, positive yesterday pm and then negative again this morning. Confused- any insight? If it is CD day 5 then is it too early to surge to be able to conceive? Or can you have a false positive?

    The OPK have always been reliable for me in the past and I haven't had a ton of trouble getting pregnant but have had 2 miscarriages after 2 successful pregnancies and I am now older 37. This seems very early but maybe my period is just weird with a break in the middle of no blood and then lots. I haven't yet charted my temps but that would be a step for next month I guess. Any helpful insight would be much appreciated!

  • blood/brown tinged discharge 8 weeks pregnant?

    Not bloody or bright red but 3x today when in the bathroom noticed it on the toilet paper. Brownish tinged like old blood but still over a 12 hr period it happened 3x. I am bet 8 and 9 weeks pregnant. Not in pain or anything. I know egg implantation can cause this but I think I am past that point at 8 weeks right? I always thought blood at time of 1st missed period was normal but I am at the point of my 2nd missed period. Anyway, this could turn out to still be okay?

    These bugs have been in my laundry room all summer and now just found them all in the seams of our couch in the basement where we had left some clean laundry to fold. They are pale, light tan and look like they have wings but dont seem to fly. They sort of flutter them. They are super easy to squish- and often when you squish them it looks like a white powdery substance.

    They seem to always be in the damp towels in the dirty laundry on the basement floor that is in the queue for the . They don't seem to bite or do anything- and had only noticed a random one a few times a week until I found them in the seam of the leather couch in the nearby laundry room. help!

  • Another child hit my son in preschool. The childs mother didn't say anything- should I mention it to her?

    The other child has hit other kids in the class too, causing some other injuries- black eye etc to other kids. My son is fine but has a big bruise/welt on his forehead. The teacher didn't tell me whether she mentioned it to his mom, but Im pretty sure she did. Still the other mother hasn't said anything to me about it. Should I let it go or mention something to the mother? I know this kid is always getting in trouble in school too so she is not unaware of the issues, just hasn't acknowledged this particular incident... What is the protocol in this situation?

  • Support groups for spouses of alcoholics?

    I have looked into Alanon but I don't think that philosophy is right for me. I am not religious either and don't like the higher power/God aspect to this group. Are there any other ones available both online and in my city? I am under 40 with small children so finding like minded people would be nice.

  • What is a good intermediate to advanced acoustic guitar?

    Trying to get an upgrade for my spouse. I know guitars are personal and all that but I want to get something nice that I can give him. If he really hates it, he can return it- but Id like to get him something to physically open. He has a fender now hes been playing for 15 years but needs an upgrade. Can I get a really good one for around 300 bucks or is that not possible? This is recreational- not in a band or anything but really loves playing.
