it is so hot here that i have resorted to leaving all the doors wide open. i put a leather lead on my dog so that he'd stay in the room where my kids were watching tv. well, the dog didn't want to be with them and they weren't paying any attention to him - so he chewed through the leash... not a messy bunch of teeth marks, but it's like a precision cut right through the leather about 6 inches from his collar. how and or where could i start looking to have it...
What type of boxes or containers do you use for [seasonal and keepsakes] storage? I have a wonderful storage room with tons of shelves in my basement. Up until recently, I have stored everything (seasonal items like Xmas, winter clothes, and random misc. stuff) in rubbermaid or sterilite plastic containers.

i am on chapter 2 of Unconditional Parenting. it is a huge paradigm shift for me, and it confirms some of my sneaking suspicions about life. my own parents were masters of "conditional love" - though they would swear up and down they weren't. as long as i was acting right (which i did for years) - meeting their expectations and making their lives easy - everything was fine (for them). i grew up to be a fearful, insecure adult with absolutely no sense of personal...
