When I asked my LOR, he told me to cut the hair the Sunday before my son turned three, because as soon as he is 3 he should have a haircut and yalmuka. I was told to push it up not off.
Try the Oxyclean stick. It doesnt get on your hands, and you rub it into the stains. I have to say the kids shirts and tee’s are usually clean after that.
Tough choice. For me, the Asifa, but want to take the kids to the Siyum Hashas so guess that would win.
Gotta give out masks with logo as well, for those who want to keep hiding their identities.

Gym: The Gym, in shoprite plaza. Best place.November 30, 2011 2:23 am at 2:23 am in reply to: Do you still get childish impulses to do silly things? #1060044
I really needed those laughs. Still laughing. Let me know if you try the one after your next baby. Can just imagine the nurse passing out.
I have the B140, the commercial one for over a year. Use it in the office, Still working great. Not all coffee is good in it and it does cost alot for the k-cups. But its quick and does the job.
I love early shabbosim. The kids are up for the Friday night meal, and I still have a long quite night after the seuda.
Mik5 – prepare everything Thursday night.
Hazelnut, cin roll, gingerbread just to name a few.November 14, 2011 2:57 am at 2:57 am in reply to: Hebrew / Yiddish words with no English translation #849118
Had it bad years ago. Just have to rest and not push yourself too much. Eat healthy, (I had little or no appetite) and just pull thru it.
When the pot used to make cholent is washed right after shabbos and not just in time to put up the next cholent.
Guess there was a reason the ticket was so cheap 😉
aries, I like the advise. I will try it. One of my kids won’t eat any fruits or veggies (and very few protiens), and is starting to get chunky. I have tried many different ways to get him to try new things. I will try your advice next. TxNovember 8, 2011 7:23 pm at 7:23 pm in reply to: I can't believe what President Obama and Sarkozy said about Netanyahu!! #824877
Not surprised at all. It’s not like most of us thought that Obama had a different views about Israel (or its’ leaders), but now we hear him say it.
Soliek – What they say when the mic is on (and they know it) is what they know they should or have to say. When it is off (or they think it is) they say thier true feelings.
Either Journeys or Destiny.
In a one room apartment
somewhere in the city
a story of magic unfolds…..
Not very legal, if I remeber correctly.
One is supposed to greet people they meet. During the week it should be with a good morning/afternoon, etc. On Shabbos we replace it and say “Good Shabbos”.
Never had a bad experience there, and have heard of lots of people who bought there and where very happy. The owners are very nice people, a pleasure to deal with.
They are not like some of the stores down the 9 that you really have to be careful with.September 19, 2011 2:59 am at 2:59 am in reply to: Kitchen sinks in the corner (of L and U shaped kitchens) – pros and cons? #810612
One drawback of the corner sink – it’s hard to reach into the corners in the back of the sink to clean them. You have to lean very far back (not to mention trying to cover the counters for Pesach).
I have 2 corner sinks, they take up the least space that way. One has a backsplash behind it, that one is hard to clean, the other is facing the eating area, so there is no wall behind it. I just walk around the peninsula to clean it.
Could be, could be not. It was a first date, and maybe he just didn’t want to go into details of why he left etc. but would do that on a later date.
Wish they would have this on my kids busses. On Friday I waited for them to be dropped off for an hour, and when they got home they told me that the bus only came to school to pick them up after 45 minutes of waiting. It was a long time to wait on Friday.
And Metro I have never had a phone number of a bus driver, though I do try to get the cell number of the parent from the stop before mine.
From what I heard, the family of the accused killer is paying for his legal fees. When I read about the lawsuit my thought were that perhaps this is a way to tie up their money so they can’t pay for his legal fees. Maybe they think it will be a quicker trial without these lawyers etc. Again, just my thought.
Wow. What a well written, inspiring post. You are who you are because of your past. Keep looking forward, and you will see the light at the end of the tunnel.
The right girl will come along, the girl who sees how strong you are because of all the things that went on in your life, and will appreciate you for who YOU are.
Get rid of her. She probably isin’t doing a great job if she is busy on her phone. It’s okay when they make a phone call or text every now or then, but if it’s often then she’s not focusing on her real job.
Lost almost all my hair a short while ago (BH it’d under the sheital, but still not a nice thing). Not much to do about it, unless I wanted to have cortizone injections. It actually grew back after a little while.
Was just there. kids loved it. It gets busier during bein hazmanim. Lots of yidden, kosher food and minyanim. There are going to be the regular people there too, dressed in their summer bests. But, they cannot run around in swimwear, the water park is a separate area. (My kids didn’t even see it, till we were leaving.) The park does get quiter towards evening. In fact three hours before closing you can go in with the purchase of a ticket for the next day. So, if you are really worried you can go after 5:00. But if you go Bein Hazmanin you will see lots of jews. (We went during zman and there were quite a few there.)
It’s not Essie I think cshapiro is correct.
Mazel Tov!! May we share many simchos here and everywhere.
Didn’t like the ending at all. Thought it was abrupt and interesting. I wonder if they (mishpacha) had to end it suddenly because of pressure. (They did that in the past, if I remember correctly.)
For a personal issue, a female should go to a female. Either a Rebbitzen or an older female she feels comfortable talking to. Good Luck.
The going rate for a mohel is $350-1000. Depending on what you can afford, how far the mohel traveled, etc. Most don’t charge, but do expect to be compensted for their time and expertise.
ain’t you glad you’re living
think of all……..June 21, 2011 11:07 pm at 11:07 pm in reply to: Many attempts were made for the Kallah. How would you proceed? #791152
If someone makes a shidduch, the “minhag hamokem” is to pay before the wedding. It is not a choice if they want to or not, they owe the shadchon his/her wage. He/She worked hard on the shidduch (I would assume, most shidduchim are a huge headach) and even if it went easy that is norm in todays day and age.
Ofcourse, you did the right thing by asking about the payment. BTW what about his side, did they pay you? Good Luck! Hope it’s a big check at the end of all this.
I wear one all the time. Can’t see why anyone thinks there is something wrong with it. I agree with “whatrutkgabt”. But, I do have friends and family who won’t wear a pony sheital.
Some say after the chuppa and some say the next morning.
Mazel Tov! Seem to be having lots of emergancy personnel around that household. Should only be for good things.
YN Mod 42, Not a good mechitza you can see thru it 🙂
My car stayed on the derech, that is until someone met us by accident… Bh we made it out alive (can’t say the same for the car).
My husband and I worked very hard for the first few years we were married, didn’t spend on many extras and lived in a small rented apartment with 3 kids, and put away as much as we could. We didn’t get help from either of our parents, but bought a house “with lots of potential”.
Gotta think ahead and don’t spend on silly things.
Can’t even think straight after reading this. There a real crazy people in this world. Would love to read a follow up about when the kids are teenagers and see what all this “freedom” gave them.
Derech, you didn’t say if you want recipes for food (kugels, meats) or cakes, etc. Or do you just want all?
You want recipes for food or for cake? I love the challenge of cooking for Pesach. I find new and tasty foods every year!
Sorry eclipse, I meant to vent here so you shouldn’t take your anger/frustration out at her and yell at her, etc. Eventhough from your posting it seems you are quite strong. Keep up the good work. Keep smiling.
Why not? Doesn’t hurt and could lift someones spirit!
Eclipse, Stay strong. My parents had 2 kids go OTD, at two different times. Both came back to some degree. One more than before and one less than the family standards. But there is lots of strength needed to go thru the ordeal. Seems you are doing it alone, so we will keep you in our toughts and prayers. Keep being strong and vent here on the CR not to your daughter. Good luck and get a good nights sleep.
I guess I really messed up. Noone supports us, noone helped us put down a down payment and we would never ask for money for any of it. (That’s not to say that my in-laws don’t support their daughters, but I guess thats life.) Never understood how people were able to afford all they do on “Kollel budget”, but I guess if they demand from their parents, and the parents give it, that’s the answer. If the parents don’t want to they should learn to say no, it would help everyone.
