  1. And because this is something I think of often, I have started a bucket list and am checking things off as I go. This spring/summer I intend to start to hike the 4000 foot mountains in NH and I won't stop until I've hiked them all. I am also joining a women's camping group. I want to buy a retro style camper and take off for a.few weeks each year by myself or with a VERY few select people. These glampers meet all over the US and I have been studying campers for a good 6 - 8 months now. I gave to my family my entire life and now want to do for myself. I am blessed that my family fully supports this and is thrilled to see me doing things for myself. One other thing I did on my bucket list was to adopt a kitten. I always adopt harder to place animals. I felt guilty so I also adopted her mother and another boy kitten. It yook dh months to discover that I had 4 cats. :D
  2. What is the correct form of B12. I still can't figure this one out. I got an awesome raw food one but it made my heart beat rapidly and caused flushing. I didn't realize it had niacin in it when I bought it. My mom died at 68 of dementia, her sister died at 70 of vascular dementia, their mom had dementia when she died in her 80s and my grandfather died of Alzheimers. This coupled with the fact that I have had many concussions, one severe and life changing, leads me to believe I know what my eventual fate will be. My memory never recovered and I haveany cognitive issues at age 53. What would I do? Move to VT before it progresses too much. I told my family this is my desire.
  3. Hospice would be a much more peaceful and comfortable death but it's not like you can make anything happen. I can't imagine a father doing what he has done, and I can't imagine being the daughter he has done this to. I am really sorry for you.
  4. I tend to have a VERY obnoxious sense of humor and find what you speak of so cold hearted and outright mean.
  5. I do not have life insurance on myself but my family would be fine financially. I don't see how they will survive without me emotionally. It is something I have worried about for years. Dh is a good dad, but I am much, much closer to my kids than he ever will be. My family calls me the heartbeat of the family.
  6. It is SOO hard to sit quietly by and watch loved ones suffer because of their choices. When my parents were dying, I thought I would go insane myself. I get it. Your mom can't think clearly now. Do what you can yo show her you care, and when dna donor is gone, that is when you can show her how much you love her. That is when she will need you most. She has made her choices and has to live with them. They do not have to impact you - physically anyway.
  7. That is so gross!!! "Mom!!! Dad!!! Time to have sex so you can make more children for us to care for!" Really? Where on earth did you hear this?
  8. My two dogs I got for $400 I adopted from FL so they were cheaper than adopting in New England. I gave a video your of the home and yard. They are more lenient when adopting in the sputh because it is impossible to find hones for the numbers of dogs there. Just wanted to clarify. My cats and kittens have been from the south AND from New England. They all have cost $100
  9. Oh, and Aura! So happy to hear about the homeschool groups! The cost of the neuter is so cheap, I would ve surprised if that became an issue for the little fella.
  10. That is a very cheap price for a neuter. It is likely because you are in the south. Hornblower, I believe I remember that you're in Canada? In the US, rescues can be cheap - or not. In the south there is a serious problem with strays and poor dogs who live their entire life on a chain or in other undesirable circumstances. Adopting down south is cheaper. In the Northeast, many of the dogs in rescues have been transported from the south. I adopted a dog and his blind mother or sister (not sure which) and paid $400 for the two. I then paid another $300 to transport them to NH. I also adopted from a shelter in VT. This dog came from the south and was a puppy. I wanted an older dog but she was the only dog who would tolerate my over steung blackmouth cur. She was adopted out at 3.5 months and was not aoayed. I paid $600 for her. People complain about the cost, but I look at the volume of dogs which they transuport from the south WEEKLY and I am more than happy to contribute. The spay was another $300 or so. Money well spent. I saved a life.
  11. If you don't want to list your state here and are willing to PM ke, please do. I also know of many places which transport dogs yo shelters.
  12. I would NOT recommendong sending him to a kill shelter. Adoptable dogs are killed regularly. I would research rescue grouls and keep trying to get one to help you until you fond one. What state are you in? I have ties to a few...
