  1. So we purchase online and then go in to pick up? I couldn’t find info on the one near us. I want to get some Sektion cabinets.
  2. You're right, I think it's due to post menopause. She's only able to use a small amount of topical progesterone which at first helped but no longer works well unless paired with other remedies. And going higher than 25 mg seems to raise cortisol levels in some people. Due to a slight liver problem I don't think she can consume wine or beer every night. Even 50 mg of melatonin doesn't work. Smoking weed does help but that is the last option.
  3. It's because of insomnia. I don't drink alcohol, so I don't know if it's the alcohol that causes drowsiness or what the red wine contains that can help with sleep problems.
  4. The wine contains about 15% alcohol (red wine, Pinot Noir). I'm asking for someone who can't really consume too much alcohol but wants the benefits of red wine.
  5. We have this and it’s very well made. It’s what I would use if I had to be on a road with cars. I would probably get a better bike as mine is foldable so tires are thinner, frame is lighter. This works well if the dog is trained to not react to other dogs. My husky won’t react after 30 minutes of running. But if I let her rest for 10 minutes, the process starts all over. It’s just that we have toppled over a couple of times, so it’s not the first attachment we reach for, plus when the husky is tired, it’s harder to pull her than the other one I use, the bike skjoring leash.
  6. I don’t let the dog in front usually and if she does get in front I move to the side and bike faster so that she’s next to me. If she does get in front I start pulse breaking to get her to slow a little. And to prepare myself should she just stop and pick up food, as she did 2x while I used the scooter. If I turn and she’s on the side, I slow down a lot since I don’t think she knows the word turn, though I’ve been using it every time.
  7. I also use a manual scooter but find the bike easier to balance out her pull, though a scooter is not that bad since it’s small and light and easier to control in some ways. And dd uses a skateboard with a leash attached to her waist. With our husky we know what makes her pull, dogs and squirrels, and we always try to look ahead and around so that we are prepared.
  8. I have 2 different attachments and with a husky that can pull hard. I now only use the one from this site, https://www.alpineoutfitters.net/collections/scootering-supplies. I did get the noodle attachment to make sure it doesn’t get caught in the wheel, but you can easily make one on your own with store bought swimming noodles. With the leash attachment I can speed up when the dog is on the side or slow down when she’s in front and go in the opposite direction when she pulls to the side. But I always have 2 hands on the break especially when the dog is running in front of me, though I usually
  9. I’ve looked into them briefly for Dd who is in 10th grade. She’s not had a chance to do any shadowing or volunteering due to the pandemic. If she were to go that route I would have her apply to schools that didn’t require MCAT but maintain a reasonable GPA. It’s just that it’s super competitive with very low chance of getting in (for DD) plus needing to apply to ordinary programs that we would just have to narrow BS/MD down to a handful and focus more on college applications. I don’t know if this true, I heard from several PhD/MD people that going through the PhD/MD might be easier than

Weighted blanket, can’t sleep without it Electric lint remover for sweaters, makes a huge difference, but I wonder if the sweaters will disappear one day as I seem to gather more lint than the average person, need to stop moving my arms so much when I walk Target's dark gray storage ottomans, double as benches, keeps the house tidy and minimal-looking Ikea's high gloss white cabinet, making it look like there is nothing on the bathroom walls, giving it a clean, minimal, uncluttered look, don’t need to be constantly reminded of the amount of skincare I own Sodastream, I dri
  12. I have the stainless steel one, large enough to make about 3 cups. I had the glass ones, but they cracked eventually.
  13. When we heard that RootAnn’s Dd was going to U of A, we took another look at the school. Both of our Dds were in Spanish together, and her Dd is an awesome kid. But since we’re in CA I hope she can stay closer. I don’t think UCs will work out because I feel like a smaller setting will be better for her. Yet we need aid or merit and will need to figure that out. And without international students coming here and paying full price, I wonder how that affects our students.
  14. So glad to hear from you and knowing that your son is doing well in college. Dd is still in hs but it won’t be long before we need to start applying.
  15. We have a couple of the Castle masks for situations where we really need to be indoors for a lengthy amount of time. I haven’t worn it yet except the one time we went dog walking to test it out.
