It feels like there's a distinct difference between how we feel about an airport if it's our home airport versus somewhere we have a layover. I can imagine someone with a layover at LAX would despise it, especially if you change airlines, but I've never done that so I can't put myself in their shoes. I'm sure I've… » 10/29/14 12:18pm Wednesday 12:18pm

So, as a pregnant woman, I've been told to get a flu shot (and the TDAP). I asked my OB if I would get it from him or if I should just go to CVS or the like. He said, CVS is fine. So tonight, I try at Costcto, which is the cheapest for both shots by far. But the first Costco said they didn't have a TDAP safe for… » 10/23/14 8:27pm 10/23/14 8:27pm

Exactly. I've had some great experiences on Frontier in the past, but I booked my mom on a flight this past summer and discovered they put her in a non-reclining seat. It wasn't the last row, it wasn't near the exit row, it just didn't recline. It was like a penalty for not paying the extra $8 per flight to pick a… » 10/23/14 12:06pm 10/23/14 12:06pm

During one of my last semesters of grad school, Cal State Fullerton added a similar convenience fee, so no more rewards points for paying my tuition. But five years later, my husband's school (Cal State Dominguez Hills) still hasn't instituted a convenience fee. Same system, different rules. » 10/15/14 9:30am 10/15/14 9:30am

I'll admit, I'm actually going out a little more now (9 weeks left) than I did before because I know how little I'll be going out in the future. This fetus really likes to get out of the house; she loves concerts and football games especially. But the eating thing is beyond stupid. Personally, the only thing I "crave'… » 10/03/14 2:01pm 10/03/14 2:01pm

I'd rather have my husband's last name that that of my good-for-nothing step-father that legally adopted me when I was 10. Luckily, my mom wised up a couple years later and kicked his ass to the curb, but she kept his name. Before that, I had the last name of my bio dad, who I have never met. Seriously, my husband's… » 9/26/14 7:24pm 9/26/14 7:24pm

That sounds wonderful. I'm 30 weeks right now and I make a point of getting up early enough to have a leisurely bowl of cereal with banana slices and a cup of coffee while I read the internet for half an hour. I would do the egg thing but they are on my food aversion list, which sucks because I used to want them… » 9/22/14 3:10pm 9/22/14 3:10pm

My male OBGYN has a female NP and I just hate seeing her. She's so judgmental and condescending. I'm 35 years old, I don't need to be told how to eat healthily during my pregnancy. She also told me I should only be gaining 0.5 pound/week during my second trimester and I'd gained 3 in four weeks so I really needed to… » 9/17/14 7:55pm 9/17/14 7:55pm
