  1. Aiden jeans at The Buckle. They are expensive, but they have jeans that fit slender builds.
  2. I looked for a picture but don't have one. The news about my niece made everything else seem unimportant, you know? But Dh was very uncomfortable. The bites covered that area pretty thoroughly, even with me picking the mites off of him. My niece has made a lot of improvements. She has a good prognosis for someone who had a tennis ball sized tumor. And we thank God for her neurosurgeon who did an amazing job. She isn't back to normal yet, but we have hope that she will get most of the way there in time.
  3. My husband got hundreds of them on his feet/ankles/calves the same day my niece had a seizure last fall. This spring we were thinking she might heal from back to back brain surgeries faster than those bites would fully heal. The bites did finally clear up and my niece is unfortunately still healing. Several years ago my youngest had about 50 bites. I took her to the doctor. She got an antibiotic and was better in a couple days. If we had realized she only got over it that fast because of the antibiotics, I would have taken my husband in, too.
  4. Yup, infuriated. I am not surprised that some people support this rhetoric, but I find it very troubling. Disclaimer: I am fully vaxxed.
  5. Do you feel that the rate people pay for medical care should be a reflection of their lifestyle choices in general?
  6. No, I can't picture myself married to anyone else.
  7. Spy Car is quite capable of defending himself. 🤣 And what is with the gatekeeping? I've noticed it fairly often recently. But, of course, new posters who post the "right" things don't get admonished. (I've been here over a decade, although I don't post that often.)
  8. In the 20 counties that make up our region (the only place I know to look for statistics on it), there are a total of 9 people with Covid in the hospitals. I don't know if all of them are in because of Covid. They used to maintain a website with that information, but when cases got lower they stopped.
  9. A county near me has a 13% positivity rate - and two positive cases in the past 7 days. I don't find the percent positive to be a meaningful statistic in that scenario.
  10. I don't believe I used the word control? Having a say means that if her spending crosses a line I have a right to discuss it with her in a way I wouldn't if she were self-supporting.
  11. My Dd18 is not a big spender, but I absolutely have a say over her spending. And will until we are no longer supporting her. Money can only be spent once and every dollar that we spend on her is a dollar we can't spend on her minor siblings. We are happy to help pay for college and car insurance and sometimes gas. She can use some of the money she earns for fun, but a moderate amount.
