Welcome to our forum.
I'm sure you'll be able to make some new friends here ... and people will definitely relate to your situation. I myself am in an MFM V, so, similar to your situation I think.
You could try something like doing a search for the word "hinge" ... I am sure there are members here who have to do the balancing act you're already familiar with.
I hope you enjoy your time on our site. Is your husband already a member? Just curious.
Glad to have you aboard,
Love means never having to say, "Put down that meat cleaver!"
