  1. Somebody needs to go to Reddit and ask what the heck is happening here. I can’t figure it out looking at that picture. What happens if someone is running late? Had to stop and use the bathroom on the way out of the office? Everybody just waits, I guess?
  2. Oh, yeah. That’s a good one. 😱
  3. Yes!! The boldest is exactly what I was coming to say. It’s very (x1000) easy to say what you will or won’t do when your kid is 5 or 10 or even 15. But if you don’t have a kid who’s an adult and struggling with EF issues or LDs (or absolutely any and everything else under the sun, tbh) you really have no idea. I don’t say that in a condescending way, trust me. There were so many instances of me saying, “I will never...” as ds18 was growing up. I think if you want to ensure that you will, in fact, do something as a parent, just say emphatically how you will never do that (whatever “that” is) as that kid is growing up.... Life has a way of kicking us in the ass when we’re not expecting it. And I’ve got bruises to prove it. 😱
  4. I shouldn’t have read this thread again. I going to send out a few cards this year now. Thanks @Quill. 🤪 Y’all have pulled at heart strings this morning. 💗
  5. I like the tradition, but we don’t do cards. We did early in our marriage, but not anymore. It seems the only ones we get now are from businesses like our tax people or the dentist office and such. Stamps cost a lot when you multiply it by xx. Plus, I think Facebook and before that, MySpace, contributed to the Christmas card fade. Maybe you could just pick out say 5-10 families and drop the rest?
  6. I used to make this one. It’s delicious, IMO. it’s Mint Chocolate Chip Pie. I don’t cook as much anymore so I haven’t made it in a long time. It was easy to make. https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/mint-chocolate-pie/

(Christian fiction) my mom did not like this book, btw, so maybe it’s just me, lol. His Christmas themed book is good, too, btw. Not Without Hope by Nick Schuyler https://www.amazon.com/Not-Without-Hope-Nick-Schuyler/dp/0061993980/ref=sr_1_1?crid=CI1CHMAS5FQP&keywords=not+without+hope&qid=1572753829&sprefix=Not+without+hope%2Caps%2C280&sr=8-1. (True story) This May not be for everyone but I followed closely when this incident happened. I’ve known 3 people who’ve gone missing in the Gulf of Mexico and one was found alive. The other two—their bodies were never found. So, with that said, it may just hold special interest for me, not for most people. The book though is the ultimate story of survival. i don’t read extremely deep books. My mental health can’t take it. Sorry. Aaaaannnddd I just saw that the thread said ONE book. I spent time on these links and I’m not deleting, dang it! 🤣
  8. This is one I recommend. ‘One Lane Bridge’. It’s not too heavy, but keeps you wondering. Good hearted book. https://www.amazon.com/One-Lane-Bridge-Don-Reid-ebook/dp/B005NHTT1Q/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=Don+Reid&qid=1572747507&sr=8-2
  9. Funko Pops are fun! knit or fleece pj pants (Knit seems to give some so getting sizing right is not as critical, IMO) hoodies fun socks gift cards—Chick-fil-A, zaxbys, Wendy’s, etc Silly tshirts silly boxer shorts beanies
  10. Is the kid a minor? Yes? I’d let the parents know. is the kid a minor? No? I wouldn’t do anything. is the person pressuring my kid to use it? I’d do something about that. fwiw, ds18 did start vaping. I didn’t like it, but he was 18, so nothing I could do. He stopped *very* quickly because it’s expensive as all get-out and his gf didn’t like him smelling like citrus flavors and such all the time. She told him he was giving her a headache. 😂 Thank you Lord for her sensitive nose.
  11. I have no clue about any of that, but wanted to let you know I’m thinking of you both and praying, friend. If you need to ‘talk’, PM me.
  12. I *might* try it if it was what you thought originally, but not after seeing they torture people, of course. I watch ghost hunters & now ghost nation and am a believer. But I’ve never seen anything or had experiences even in houses that other people have had experiences in.
  13. congrats!!!! Tell us more about HealthWage!
  14. I’m jealous of all of you with short hair. You look awesome Katie!
  15. What about chicken salad on croissants? You could use rotisserie or even canned chicken (if you do it right). Or maybe egg salad?
