  1. Re financial fears - your dad can probably set up some separate accounts (possibly with his POA/heir as a joint owner) and redirect his funds into the new accounts. Her SS could continue to go into an account she has access to. He could always transfer funds to her, should she have true needs that exceed her SS income. Does she handle any financial business on her own now? One problem my elder had was the inability to keep up with regular payments - utilities, telephone and television services, flood insurance premiums, vehicles they may no longer drive but still owe on. By the time
  2. This is very often the case, sadly it does have to get worse before it can get better. That period of watching and waiting is very hard. Hopefully she will change her mind on her own and agree to a move. It seems cruel, but your sister ceasing to allow her to live in the house may be helpful. Personally if I knew my elderly parent was unsafe living alone, and would not permit home health care professionals into the house, I would come up with a reason to need her too move (ie, I need to sell the house, the house needs major renovation, I need to rent it out for income, something). If
  3. It’s been a few years since I’ve had a high school jr/sr, not sure how things have changed (aside from knowing that some universities are actually starting to waive test requirements). Student did well on PSAT last two years and is ready to take the ACT. Is it ok to take it “cold” (no prep) the first time and just not send scores anywhere? What is the likelihood that a university applied to would request every single test score? No Ivy League sort of applications anticipated, looking at liberal arts. I just don’t want a set of first-timer scores to end up hurting, kwim?
  4. FORTY? That’s impressive! I usually do about a dozen each week just to have on hand. I pressure cook on high 8-9 minutes, quick release and ice water bath. They usually peel fine but older eggs do seem easier. Not boiled eggs, but since this is an egg crowd I’ll share this recipe I made this morning. I added mushrooms, spinach and a little Parmesan. Similar to Starbuck’s sous vide egg bites. https://ifoodreal.com/instant-pot-egg-bites/
  5. This is one of our favorite movies. Our family could probably turn off the volume and provide the dialogue ourselves. It is so quirky, we just love it.
  6. Sort of a spin off on the boiled egg question... If you boil a batch of eggs to just have on hand for the week, do you peel them all immediately after cooking, or just peel them one at a time as you use them?
  7. @KungFuPandayou are on a roll!! 😂 Thanks for playing, everybody!
  8. When we’ve moved transcontinental, I’ve not had time to check out these things, but for the couple of close moves we’ve done I have been sure to drive through the neighborhood or even park and observe (1) at night (2) during/immediately following a heavy rain I also eliminate close proximity to electric company substations and high power lines, and houses that would be positioned on a street in a way they’d be a drunk/distracted driver’s target. And I wouldn’t front or back up to a high traffic road. Yeah, I’m picky about location. As far as HOA’s, make sure
  9. Huey Lewis!!! ❤️❤️❤️
  10. Not yet. I started to but thought it might make for a fun thread!
  11. Would you all please help me with a playlist? I am looking for songs that immediately make you think of the movie the song is featured in. For example: You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling (Top Gun) Unchained Melody (Ghost) Don’t You Forget About Me (Breakfast Club) Say a Little Prayer (My Best Friend’s Wedding) You get the idea! All suggestions appreciated, but especially more upbeat songs from 1980’s - 90’s era films.
  12. Yep. And maybe a root canal if your nerves flare up over the work. #teamcomposite
  13. You might find this interesting: https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.smh.com.au/entertainment/books/liane-jaclyn-and-nicola-moriarity-when-blood-is-as-thick-as-ink-20170315-guz08v.html
  14. I think it’s time for a metal art class in your home school.
  15. I had my youngest at 42. It was a tiring pregnancy, but so, so worth it. (((Condessa))), you have a lot on your plate right now. I hope that your time of expectation will be a joyful bright light that buoys you all up through otherwise difficult times.
