  1. Yes and yes. I read parts for my political science class in college. Excerpts were included in the book Social and Political Philosophy edited by John Somerville and Ronald E. Santorini. There were also pieces from Plato, Aristotle, Machiavelli, Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau. Jefferson, Thoreau, Mill, Marx, Engels, Lenin, Mussolini, Dewey, and Ghandi. We had some great discussions from this. I think dialogue would be very important to put things into perspective.
  2. I've done it in the past without it bothering me, but with this new job my husband has I don't want to anymore. It annoys me to think that I'm expected to do it. He's an adult. Whether he packs a lunch or goes hungry, I simply do not care anymore. I think this new line of thought extends from the fact that for the last several months he's been working out-of-state and being the primary caregiver has tapped me out. Maybe my attitude will shift when he's home more. What do you do?
  3. I've been doing intermittent fasting since December and the hunger the last four hours varies from day to day. I do drink hot tea during my fasting window and find it helpful. It's debatable whether or not that actually breaks a fast. I don't believe it does. You can read opposing views online. Fledge Fitness on YouTube is one who says it's okay. He has a lot of informative videos on intermittent fasting. People have also been successful doing intermittent fasting without keto too. It has worked for me, mostly by reducing the time I have for mindless eating, and I'm not a keto follower. Just wanted you to know you have options. Best wishes on your journey!
  4. Maybe talking to a registered dietician might help too. He or she could evaluate your diet. Maybe you need more daily calories or satiating foods. They can offer snack suggestions and meal plans. I think counselling is excellent too for underlying issues. This battle can be won. I'm praying for you!
  5. I was given the book option also, ha ha. I've had mine for years (it's on my wrist). It fluctuates in size and hasn't been a problem so far.
  6. I'm adding you to my prayer list :). I think it's awesome that you are stepping out in faith.
  7. We did it once in Vegas. Yes, they were pushy, but we knew we couldn't afford it. It was several hours before we got taken back to our hotel (they picked us up at our hotel and then took us to the time share place). They were not in a hurry to take the "losers" who didn't sign up back. If we ever did it again we would have an escape plan :).
  8. During the winter Eucerin does the trick for my dry skin.
  9. That takes skills, I know. Apparently I had been sleeping with my arm at a bad angle and when I shifted positions I vaguely remember my shoulder almost locking up. In my half awake state I thought it was a good idea to just jerk it back. The pain from that movement brought me to full consciousness. Ouch. Yesterday it really smarterd and my overactive imagination started diagnosing myself with a major injury. Thankfully today it's much better. What hurts the most is when I push down on the soap dispenser in the bathroom. Anyone else have any crazy sleep related injuries?
  10. I use to have my kids get their shots at a shot clinic and all the doctor's office would say was to give them a copy of their shots records sometime. They never hounded me about precise dates. I've been to three different clinics and they didn't push it. Perhaps there's less pressure on small town clinics.
  11. That has not been my experience with the clinics I've been to. They have not been pushy.
  12. Have any of you guys eaten them before? I've never been fond of mushrooms, but maybe I've been eating low quality ones ;).
  13. Baked ham, potatoes, veggies, and desert were what my sister brought me once. I loved it.
  14. My mom is a mail carrier and the post office where she works is not delivering today. They do have to go in and case the mail (organize it for delivery), but that's it.
