"I think it's here that I read that a shorter commute means greater happiness, statistically.
I'm about 15 miles from my parents and see them about once/month. I work long hours, and my husband and I plan outings well in advance. My parents…"
"Lots of tradeoffs, to be sure. I can make a few observations:
* I'd guess that the difference of being 15 min away from family and 30 min away, say, is not big. You'll not see them w/o some planning, but planning is minimal.
"You should not look 10 years out in terms of school. When my daughter was in kindergarten they were using creative spelling; spelling words like they sound instead of the actual spelling. The teacher was writing words on the board like this and she…"

Once my blog is…"
"I personally never got great satisfaction from them in my single days, but did not avoid them either. Perfectly normal for humans to crave some good naked fun...this is one answer to it. As long as you are both on the same page about the…"
"Better yet, learn to more consistently bed and satisfy the one you've got.
