  1. My kids aren't old enough to go out on their own, but I'm nearly 50 and I've grown to resent my mother constantly giving advice. This is a cautionary tale. We came to blows over it while I was in the middle of a crisis. Before she came to visit for that crisis, I told her I was not in a place to receive advice as kindly as I could. But during her visit, which was supposed to "help" me, it felt like constant criticism and nitpicking. I lost it and started yelling at her. She apologized and said she understood. The next time we talked, she was back at it again. Now, I don't feel comfor
  2. Don't know if this helps but I have had tinnitus in my left ear for years and had the Moderna shot (both doses). I didn't notice the tinnitus worsening at all.
  3. Thank you for this recommendation! I've only done two workouts so far but she is exactly what I need.
  4. I agree with others that this person probably has anxiety. So getting the vaccine likely HAS made a difference in her life, even if you cannot see the difference it has made. Anyone with anxiety can identify with the feeling of a weight being lifted off your chest, and how that can lead to better sleep, which can lead to a better mood, and so on.
  5. It sounds like the partner is aware of the toxicity, is that accurate? I think that will help quite a bit. I'm a fan of JNMIL on Reddit--stands for Just no MIL. The subreddit put together a list of resources for dealing with toxic MILs and others. Lots of interesting reading here, maybe some of it can help. Sometimes it helps to know there are people out there who really get it. https://www.reddit.com/r/JUSTNOMIL/wiki/milimination_tactics My initial thought was that your child become an expert at the grey rock technique and learn to at least be with them, while the partner lear
  6. I can tell you what my 23 and Me tree is like. From the names I recognize on my 23 and Me list, they have accurately identified a first cousin (13.4% DNA match) and a first cousin, once removed (7.6% DNA match). They go on to list first cousin, twice removed, second cousins, etc. The lowest level of relation is 4th cousin, with a 0.23% DNA match. Does that help?
  7. Where I am with Covid-I used to be so angry over the covidiots. I left a lot of FB groups because I just couldn't let things go. I would feel a chill of anger run up my back when I read things those people posted. I also used to obsessively check the rates. I don't know if it was self-preservation or what but I have been able to let a lot of things go. Or maybe I am calmer because there has been a major change politically and I can sense that there will be an end to this, whereas before I wasn't sure. I only know one person who had Covid and then died, although her Covid diagnosis is what
  8. I thought of this immediately (but couldn't remember the comedian). When my family went through a rough time I found some little rubber duck charms to give my kids to put in their pockets, because that routine cracked us up so much.
  9. I'd like to add that about 20 years ago I did this. I was breaking up with a boyfriend that I lived with, but it was really my apartment. I moved there and then he moved in with me several months later. I got to keep the apartment and everything, but rather than using the time constructively as you'd expect an adult to do, he sat around playing video games. He didn't look for a permanent place to stay or pack anything of his. I think I was only displaced for a week instead of a month, but I definitely wish I had made him stay with a friend that week and had designated times for him to come pic
  10. My 9 year old has a bit of baby fat on her and I usually get size 10 or Large (10/12). She mostly wears dresses with leggings or scooters with t-shirts. She does not like structured clothes. I believe her shoe size is a 2.
  11. Yes, 11 is absolutely a huge time of change for girls. I hated being that age and I hated my older DDs being that age and I hate that my youngest DD still has to face it. Best friends become worst enemies. Any friends who were boys become enemies. But I suppose it's all about finding an identity, and new friends who will accept that identity.
  12. Why do you so desperately need it to *not* be about race? Obviously this was a crime against women (and one man) but why ignore the fact that they were mostly Asian women?
  13. That would have been a good place to clarify your meaning, if you so strongly believe I misinterpreted your implication.
