  1. I believe you have to be honest. Normally I am ok with polite lies, but this woman sounds aggressive and they live too near you. It's ok to say, "We don't want to play today. We are having a family day." Or "I am tired and don't want to watch extra kids today." If you get any push back at all you can just tell her, "I really like being with just my children some days. Why don't we plan to play on Wednesday?"
  2. Alas, Babylon by Pat Frank is one I enjoyed. It's about the fall out of a "man made" catastrophe. It may seem a little dated - particularly in the gender roles - but was a good novel about how a community manages to survive a nuclear disaster. On the Beach by Nevil Shute is another nuclear disaster novel. ETA: now that I read everyone else's suggestions, I see how much I lack originality. Oh well. I guess I am in good company thinking it's a worthy read, though obviously not exactly what you were looking for.
  3. Dansko clogs helped when the problem was mild. Fitflops did not work at all. Horrid things. Crocs were awful too. Professional inserts helped me the most. That and yoga and stretches. Ice. I am a good wi Weight and have major problems with it, so while losing weight can't hurt, it won't necessarily help either.
  4. If you and dh are in agreement, no further reasons are needed, and believe me when I say this ... No reason will ever be good enough for some people.
  5. Thank you for your note about my dog, Homer. He's really a great dog, and I probably have .... 200..... photos of him. Love that boy:)
