  1. As always, @Kareni, an enjoyable read through on this page alone! Always a good laugh here. Maybe you can do better with these two: This one caught my eye: Any turtle people here? Did you check the specific group forums? elderberry recommendations please I highly recommend elderberries
  2. EXCITED! I went to a new to pizza place, supposedly "Greek". You never knew what you're going to get with pizza. I asked someone who was waiting for hers if she had gotten pizza there before. Yes, she had. Excellent pepperoni, she said. So I ordered a vegetarian pizza and while paying for it, could see beyond the wall that divided the counter and the other side of the business. On the other side of the wall on the counter was a large frozen lasagna box, opened. Busted. haha So they can't claim fresh made lasagna or original. The pizza was good, the mushrooms and other veggies were FRESH. (I don't think I'll go back. I may or may not have seen a roach. It was very small and there is a similar bug in Texas that is small and not a roach).
  3. My kids...two sons dated non-LDS girls, but I honestly can't remember how old either was, over 18 I believe. So you're probably looking for advice of parents of those under 18, or experiences. The one was interested in the church and was baptized before engagement because that is what she chose, he stayed out of her conversion (as did I), so that seriously was good. The other relationship was serious, they did get married and she is still not a member. She's awesome, both girls are very awesome young people. There was no way I was going to say, "no, you can't date her, she's not a member." There is nothing that will drive a child away from a religion or a good parent-child relationship than disapproving a relationship when it is a good relationship between two good people. They all knew all the rules but were adults, so out of my hands. Both of their families have learned that we are good people. If it were my teen under 18 wanting to exclusively date a non-LDS person, I seriously cannot say because I haven't experienced that. I like to think I'd have an open mind but we mostly teach our kids: no exclusive relationships, date others in group dates or one other couple also LDS, no dating under the age of 16, and there are other things we teach our teens that are acceptable and unacceptable behavior on a date. This is what all of my kids have done except two have dated others so there was nothing serious until later (over 18).
  4. My style change is usually every 2-3 years but now that I have lost a little weight, I am thinking I will let it grow long. I had been thinking of a bob which I have never had because I hate the word ("bob"), but I'll just wait and see how this goes. I've gotten a few really nice compliments in the past couple of months and that works for me!
  5. @gardenmom5 that's a pretty sweet deal ya got going there. Even when we lived out in the country, I did answer the door. Usually to tell them I wasn't interested, sometimes I'd listen, but usually not. The biggest deterent, according to police, is a dog, hopefully one that sounds fierce. Apparently black dogs also strike the fear zone too. I love black dogs.
  6. I do answer the door to strangers, while someone else in the family tries to wrangle our dog who is usually barking the whole time and sounding vicious. Then I remind people at the door that we are on the "Do not knock" list with our city and they need to remind their employer to look out for that. Goodbye.
  7. Be careful of what might be going on with your gall bladder too. You can do this! Be careful of salad dressings, dairy products, and the simple carbs. No expert advice or experience here, just chiming in and cheering you on.
  8. We've used Weightless by Marconi Union and the various Tibetan Bowls recordings. I found that my Weightless nights would stop playing part way through and I was none the wiser because I fell asleep. It helped for a short time, but I had to switch it up. I wasn't doing caffeine past a certain time of day but was still experiencing an intense wakefulness at times late at night.
  9. That's very encouraging news!!! I hope you get it and if not, it was great experience for the interview and the waiting...
  10. Will be thinking of your brother, sending prayers for you all. Hopefully it is nothing, just absolutely nothing.
  11. After many years of not working outside of the home I landed a part time position and even though it is sometimes a difficult job, I enjoy it. The people I work with are all intelligent. Be nice to yourself.
  12. It feels so good to get outside when you know you really need it. Wishing many more hikes to you and your kids and peace and healing to your lives.
  13. After lots of kids and never any problems, not even when I was a kid, our two young teens had lice. It was very upsetting, so if you feel that way, you are not alone. We did use over the counter lice shampoo but I don't remember what it was called. I laboriously nit picked over their hair every day. It took two hours for the one because she has such thick hair. The other one had long hair so she got a hair cut, sadly, by me. ? We got through it without anyone else in the household getting lice. It didn't take forever but it seemed like it. Good luck.
  14. More than 25 years ago (just to reassure you that people have always been doowhop about math) I asked to have 2/3 of a yard of fabric at a craft store. The clerk looked at me in disbelief and said she could not sell it in thirds, or cut it in thirds. I asked why not, it would only be TWO THIRDS cut in one solid piece. The price is yadda yah, so it would be thus (price). To me it was very simple math. She looked SO confused. My dad was with me, I turned and looked at him. We were both shocked but amused. Fortunately the supervisor knew how to do math and cut the 2/3 of a yard for me.
