I now know why I chose to pay the dog groomer the big bucks. One butchered dog, a shop vac full of hair and I.AM.DONE.

melmichiganThe kids do our poodles, but they have a mentor who is teaching them how to do it. I can't imagine just doing it without that. You are more daring than I am!

Book a Week is live on the Chat Board - Celebrating 20 years of Harry Potter!
My very mundane daily life is teaching me that good timing and good tools are 95% of everything. Also, that I'm incredibly impatient.
Dd just left for DC for an 8 week internship at the Smithsonian, and I'm a weeping mess. Gah, having adult children is so hard!
Angie in VAI would be so excited for her and so sad for me. Will she rotate among the Smithsonian museums?

GailVShe's at the American Art Museum doing lighting for the exhibits for the entire time. And, yes, excited for her, but pity party for me that she's totally independent these days.

swimmermom3It is such an exciting adventure for her. Knowing that, makes the letting go a little bit easier with time.

There is little panic deeper than a kid who has spent the last three years building up a SciComm account and following-and who finds her account inaccessible. Twitter tech support is less than helpfu

CES2005:( I really hope that gets worked out; that sounds like the sky falling, I'm not kidding.

Appreciating a financial cushion for the first time, and hoping it's not tested anytime soon!
Move over, Mike. Henry's Hard Soda (grape) is way better than hard lemonade.
scbusfI just saw an ad for that yesterday. I want to try the Orange.

QuillI have been thinking of trying it. I'm a big fan of Mike's.

mathmarmIs that a referral link of some kind?
Jun 02 2017 08:55 AM
SlacheYes. I'm sure you could find at the website if you wanted.

mathmarmThe link wasn't working on my phone. It works on my computer. I signed up.

Egg came first or chicken came first
Today I processed my first chicken. I may have to stick to plants...
CES2005This one was about to cannibalize another hen. :( But yes, natural causes is a lot less messy, I think!

Melissa in AustraliaI find wearing gloves helps. There is something about the smell while processing them that stays on your hands for a long time even after numerous washes that is awful. Gloves eliminate that.
May 29 2017 03:43 PM
CES2005Yeah I noticed the lingering smell; I thought it was psychosomatic, lol. We have a nail brush I used multiple times. I'll have to remember to get some gloves and keep them on hand. Thanks!

Our air conditioner broke. In Texas. Again. Why??! Why?? *shaking fist in the air*
melbotoastOh no!!! That's the worst!
May 27 2017 02:03 PM
chiguirreI'm so sorry. I hope you can get it fixed fast!
Jun 04 2017 11:46 AM
EvantheOK...it gets worse. DD15 needs surgery. She tore her ACL jumping on a trampoline. :/ Everything around here is breaking - even the people! That's it! No more!
Jun 07 2017 08:12 PM
CES2005Congrats! Happy packing/unpacking. :)

Lost my AOPS Pre-Algebra book! Fat lot of good the solutions manual does me now...
mama25angelsomg! I sure hope you find it!
May 25 2017 10:20 AM
CES2005Agreed! I'm sorry that happened.

Another group of plants in the ground (finally); that was...hopefully worth the effort.
May 21 2017 11:00 PM
marbelWe went to a native plant sale last weekend and picked up a few things. We have a poor track record but... we'll see.
May 23 2017 03:16 PM
CES2005Me too! I just keep trying. I have learned that house plants are safer with others, though!
