  1. I don’t know your fitness level but bump it up and include medium/high impact activities. Like jumping in place. Lift weights but start with a trainer. My mom has kept her osteopenia pretty much stable for 20 years. She has used all the drugs, taken all the supplements, adjusted her diet and exercise. She’s very active. She liked Reclasse (spell check that) best. Also do fitness aimed at fall prevention. This generally is core strength and balance. My MIL 85+ swears by her weekly Tai Chi class for seniors. A last thing to look at: maybe adding estrogen temporarily to get your bone density significantly back up. You are young enough that it might be ok.
  2. I’ve got Romanesco Cauliflower seedlings under lights. Just a bit longer and I’ll begin to harden them off. I’ve also got Amish Paste tomato seedlings and Black Paste tomatoes going on. I’m considering a black raspberry for my garden plot. I did not really like red raspberries but these I do. I don’t know how finicky they are. Any raspberry advice would be appreciated. I don’t know what to start next.
  3. I suggest keeping an eye out for corrugated plastic. Sign shops have it. My kids used the large pieces to construct outdoor (waterproof) buildings and tunnels when they were younger.
  4. I like the Headspace app. I think the first 10 guided meditations are free. The rest aren’t too pricey. I’ve been using it for over a year.
  5. It’s a different type of beer called small beer. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Small_beer
  6. Raise a puppy for a service organization? Take care of a military family’s pet for 1-2 years while they are overseas? Rabbits?
  7. We have the Coravin wine saver. DH got it for my birthday because I only drink wine once a week (max) but I can really taste the different difference in the wine after it’s been open even one day. It’s listed on amazon for about $200/$300 depending on the model. It works great! https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01JD7AT4W/ref=mp_s_a_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1516102001&sr=8-7&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=coravin&dpPl=1&dpID=31pwWZUgH8L&ref=plSrch
  8. Gummy bears ? Jello jugglers with real fruit juice. Frozen mashed bananas
  9. Here’s another splatter guard. https://www.amazon.com/Frywall-Large-Pans-Protection-Compromises/dp/B01LYSTDWL
  10. Hello, I hope you all can help me out. I took high school french back in the 80’s. I was able to think in French by year 2. But it has been a very long time since I used it. I’m travelling to France this summer and I’d like to brush up on conversational French. What do you recommend? Thank you, Sandra
  11. In the 1960’s my folks lived in Africa and had to rinse all fresh produce in a bleach solution. I have no idea how much bleach or how long but it works. It might be worth researching or testing! Science experiment !
  12. Ktgrok has it nailed. If you don’t have a recent one, a psych-ed evaluation could be a good idea. Problems with real life social cues can drive the online presence bc it is simpler. A psych moderated social group could be good
  13. You will have to treat the allergy eventually but you could give him sudafed just to dry him up for a bit. What’s he allergic to? Can you run an air filter in his bedroom, keep pets out, and hot water wash all the bedding to give him a low allergen place to sleep?
  14. A couple years ago I went through December feeling impending doom. It had been a rough year and I still had pain from injuries. I just thought the holiday stress was pushing me. Nope. Bladder infection. Seriously. It is an easy thing to check. If I had not had my routine gyn appointment after Christmas I might have ended up with a kidney infection.
  15. I’m planning an instant pot cheesecake with no crust. Chocolate ganache on the side. Maybe strawberries too.
  16. For car shopping you really only need the case. That might be easier to borrow for a few afternoons.
  17. I'm going big into the Tile item finders this year, too. I'm tired of the drama of lost things.
  18. Yes, she has. She says that she put me in as a recommendor... I will have to double check that. Thanks
  19. Hello, I'm hoping that you all can help me out. The help desk at the Common App is garbage. From reading other posts, it seems that I need to submit information about our homeschool, about dd's courses, and I don't know what else. How do I do this? They have sent me no link and appear to have no place to create a log in for me as counselor. ??!! Thanks, Sandra
  20. Technically the BSA does not accept atheists in any program. However our experience has been that there are Crews that ignore that. They would certainly by fine with pagan kids. The one I know of is sponsored by a Methodist church.
  21. Thanks. We are also applying for ACT accommodations for December. The deadline there is in early November.
  22. So we just received out supporting documentation for the request for accommodations. The problem being that today is the deadline. Anyone know of a way to submit the request electronically? Alternatively, will colleges accept more SAT scores from applicants after their application deadline? We can easily make the deadline for February testing but the targeted local uni has a mid January deadline. Sigh. I want to kick myself for not hounding the evaluator to get this done sooner. It was just one too many balls in the air.
  23. I had that problem and my doctor said it was low thyroid at night that was waking me. She prescribed a small dose of levothyroxine to take in the afternoon. Sure enough, it works.
  24. From a website on hair loss in women: Hair loss on the head of a woman indicates low estrogen or progesterone. Hair loss all over the body can indicate low thyroid. It may be that the thyroid is not the source of the hair problem.
  25. We spent the day in the ER. Seems to have been from Sudafed. All is well but sudafed is now in the avoid list which is a real bummer for people with chronic sinus issues.
