  1. We use 2 twin mattress pads so I don't know what it would be like if you used a king-sized one, though you certainly could. You will feel it when you're in bed if you move that direction, but you won't see it when the bed is made if you use a king comforter or quilt. And if you have adjustable beds like we do, and you each raise your side to a different incline, you'll feel that if you roll over to that side of the bed.
  2. It might depend on the manufacturer. We have a Tempurpedic adjustable bed so it's two twin xl bases and two twin xl mattresses. It came with two straps to keep them together, but the guy who set the beds up said they usually only use the straps when the beds are on hardwood floors. He didn't put the straps on ours (we have carpet) and the beds haven't budged. In fact, I tried to push them back against the wall (he left a gap between the head of the bed and the wall) and I couldn't do it. I had to lift the bases to move them. While they are technically 2 twin mattresses, they sell them as a
  3. We’ve always had a king & recently switched to a split king—two xl twin mattresses. The regular king gave us plenty of room width-wise. And the split king is even better because having separate mattresses means we don’t feel the other person moving around on their side of the bed. Highly recommended if you can afford it. Regarding bedding if you’re curious...we have twin xl bottom & top sheets & blankets on each mattress, but still share the one king-size bedspread.
  4. Ohhh, I like the looks of some of these video samples. Thanks for sharing! ☺️
  5. We had a house on our street that was unoccupied for a couple of years. My (very vague) understanding is that the house is in some sort of trust and can't be sold. If someone from the family doesn't want to live there, it sits empty. ETA: I don't know if they can rent it out. I get the impression no one would want the hassle.
  6. I’m not anonymous but I am so grateful for this thread. I was just diagnosed with hypothyroidism. My TSH was 9.61 & my doctor hasn’t been much help beyond telling me to take the thyroid medication she prescribed. This thread gives me some places to look for further information, so thank you 😊
  7. Are you on Instagram? Search hashtags for #nonfiction or #nonfictionbooks or similar things & you can find many, many recommendations. I love the Instagram book community 💙📚
  8. I loved 90210 back in the day but I'm afraid to watch this one. It just seems...sad for them as actors. Like, haven't you moved on to something else? Are you trying to relive your glory days? 🙈But I've only glanced at the previews for it so I might be way off base.
  9. I've used Kohl's to return items to Amazon 2 times now. Amazon sends a QR code to your email. Kohl's scans the code, gives you a receipt, and takes the return. It doesn't need to be boxed up or anything. Kohl's takes care of it all. The actual process takes less than 60 seconds. And Kohl's give you a 25% off coupon for purchases in the store (ya know, since you're already there 🙂). That coupon is good for 7 days.
  10. I've been in and out of the blogging world for 10ish years. The money now is being made either in affiliate sales or selling your own products. You use the blog to draw traffic to your website. Blogging itself probably won't make you much money. But if you have products you can create and sell, like digital products, you can do very well. Assuming there's a market. (edited for punctuation.)
  11. I'm happy to make a $5 or $10 donation to a charity that someone cares about, but I'm old-fashioned enough to expect an acknowledgement of said donation from the person who wanted the donation made. Just a simple 2-word "thank you" post. I did it for a family member who posted about it. I was happy to do it. And this is a family member I'm not close to so I wouldn't normally have sent a card or gift. It's a cause that she is very, very passionate about. And while I'm not as passionate, I could get behind it. She never acknowledged that I made the donation. I'll never make another donatio
  12. As mentioned above, I just expect to not accomplish much except work on those days. I keep my expectations to a minimum and recognize that I'll likely be cranky those days so I try to avoid stress and annoyances.
  13. If you are interested in self-publishing your book(s), check out Joanna Penn's site, The Creative Penn. She is a very successful self-published author and has hundreds of articles and podcasts on her blog about the writing and publishing process. She has also co-written a few books with other authors and has articles and podcasts about that as well. I think she's even written a book about co-writing. In addition to her blog and podcast, she has a book out called How To Write Non-Fiction. And there is a course you can take that goes deeper than the book. I have not taken her non-fiction wr
  14. I follow Kate from The Small Things Blog for all my hair stuff. She's a former stylist-turned-blogger and she does a lot of product reviews. You might try looking at her site and seeing if she recommends anything similar. She often does low, medium, high-end categories when she is testing products.
