  1. It sounded like Chelli was asking for advice for multiple situations.
  2. My sister had great success with mayo and covering with plastic wrap/plastic bag overnight. And then repeating that a few times and spending hours and hours combing out the nits. And washing everything that could be washed and bagging and putting away the other stuff.
  3. I voted “other” because I didn’t want to say “never” but I really can’t imagine doing it.
  4. I use something like these from BB&B. https://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/store/product/kitchensmart-reg-solid-pot-holder/3176220 They're a rectangular potholder shape with pockets to put your hands in and they have a (silicone?) grip on one side. I really like the grippy part and the pot holder shape is a good size for my hands. I’ve tried the silicone oven mitts at other people’s houses and they are WAY too big for my hands. I don’t feel like I have any control. These are perfect for me, this is the second set I’ve had in 14 years and I’m going to buy some new ones before we have company for the holidays because they look a little grungy. It looks like this style is called “pot mitts”.
  5. I just found this thread today and read through it from the beginning. I was happy to see your update. I’ve lived in a few states in the Midwest and in California. I know I would have a very difficult time if I moved to the NE.
  6. Coffee maker and a paper towel holder. All the appliances live in the pantry. This is not because I’m neat and tidy, it’s the opposite. If I have anything put on the counter it attracts more stuff and then I can’t keep it under control.
  7. Yes and if you’re in a group text and some people have android then it doesn’t show up on the text like it does on Iphone. It will just say “added heart to text”, “removed heart from text”, “laughed at text”, etc. I'm in several family group texts. None of what you’ve describe seems particularly strange.
  8. Hi, I was wondering if you ended up doing the class and if so, which instructor you chose? My son is in SWI B.
  9. Anxiety? It sounds like it could be a mild panic attack.
  10. I would hire a professional dog walker to take the puppy out.
  11. I think she was, it was other people who were talking about getting access through the WiFi locks.
  12. It’s not a bad idea. It made me start thinking about it. My DS is almost 13 and I don’t think he would have any idea how to shop for clothes. I bring ALL his clothes home for him, I can’t even remember him going to a store and trying on clothes. I can just picture him standing in the store with no idea what to do. Lol
  13. I think a lot of these companies also have WiFi door locks now. Like a keypad lock that can also be opened electronically.
  14. I totally agree. I would be LIVID, I’m pretty worked up just reading the post!
  15. You can take Benadryl and Zyrtec at the same time. I would also add a nasal spray like Nasacort.
  16. Yep. My dh can create a very tight schedule and get things done very quickly. But if there is a delay in the decision making (delays ordering and scheduling) it can translate to weeks and months of delay. We have a customer right now who is at least 9 months behind schedule because he won’t make decisions. We don’t write deadlines into our contracts.
  17. I totally agree. We own a construction company. We don’t do small jobs, my dh would bid the small stuff along with the remodel but it would be much, much better (cheaper) to have a handyman do that. If you do the remodel, it is crucial to make decisions quickly. Every time the contractor has to wait for a decision the schedule gets pushed further back.
  18. We had a situation like that too, it was really unfortunate. I also thought that since the family member had spent to much time around my kids that they would be more relaxed. I was wrong. Very. Very. Wrong.
  19. What? How in the world did that happen? Time flies around here.
  20. We have a cordless Dyson that I have DS use every day. It works great to get up all the hair. I seriously thought about a Roomba but ultimately decided on the cordless vac.
  21. We had magnetic locks on the lower cabinets and they were worth every penny. We also used baby gates to keep them away from stairs, outlet covers, furniture anchors, etc. For my own sanity I needed to be able to turn my back or do something in another room for a minute and know that the kids couldn’t get in to things. Some people don’t need that but I can’t be *on* every second of the day.
  22. When I had it done for my chihuahua in California it was about $600 (including a few extractions. We had it done in Nebraska and it was $130 (also including a few extractions).
  23. Those are nice and it does make the most sense to have square containers. I use my 16oz containers the most so I would probably try a set of 16oz first.
  24. I use similar containers. Reditainer Extreme Freeze Deli Food Containers with Lids, 16-Ounce, 36-Pack https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00HG8YTB0/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_.rNxBb4DFB604 I have them in 8, 16, and 32oz. Love them.
  25. I understand the frustration but what this increase says to me is that people are frustrated and desperate to get their kids out of public school.
