  1. Right there with you. :glare: In the last two weeks, I have spent about $500.00 on doctors and prescriptions I am no better at all. I did see a different doctor after the first one. So, two doctors can't make me well. One prescription (a steroid) caused a mid cycle period from hell and made me even sicker. So, in addition to my original problem, I put 500.00 on my credit cards and now have my hormones all out of whack. And I am sicker than ever. :cursing: And they want me to come in for a follow up. More $$$$$. I could just flush the money down the toilet and get the same results.
  2. I am so sorry for your loss. Prayers for you all.
  3. We came through fine here . I am in North Central FL.Lots of heavy rain last night and a few strong wind gusts early this morning. Sunny out now. :)
  4. Nice! I bought two bikinis this year. I couldn't find any in stores that would fit my ample booKs , so I had to order online. This is one the ones I got. The other is a plain black one in a similar style.
  5. I work from home as an internet assessor for Lionbridge. Pay is decent, and I can work when I feel like it, for the most part.
  6. Medication! LOL :laugh: Only sort of kidding. I deal with chronic depression and anxiety and I finally went for help last year. The meds I take help a lot. Also, trying to concentrate on what I can do in my own back yard, so to speak. I cannot control much, but I can try to do what I need to do to get through my life one day at a time. Hug my daughter, say an encouraging word to my husband, be a listening ear to someone who needs to talk, etc. Praying the serenity prayer helps too.
  7. Yes! And so does my teenage dd. Although we are moving into a smaller home soon and are having to downsize our collections. We each have a stereo with turntable that we bought from Kmart. It is a vintage looking item that plays records, cassettes, CDs and has a radio and a hookup for MP3. We get most of our records at a local flea market. Also, local thrift store often carry them.
  8. Well, people take pride in various things they identify with all the time. Nothing wrong with it that I can see. Gay pride, black or other ethnic pride. St Patrick's Day brings out "Proud to be Irish" Proud New Yorkers, proud Southerners, etc. It isn't something I spend any mental energy on, but I see nothing at all wrong with it. To each their own.
  9. I watched the Frontier House one years ago. I recall some references to tEA and some discussion of family planning methods of the day. Also it could be stressful to a child when it comes time where the animal is about to be turned into meat. Maybe others could remember more.
  10. I somehow missed the news that you were expecting! Congratulations and best wishes! i hope you feel better soon.
  11. Off to research the Instant Pot! I am moving into a new home pretty soon and need to replace my crock pot (which I use frequently). Maybe this will be better??
  12. Yes, you can do Flylady without the emails! I did for a long time. I bought a used copy of her book, "Sink Reflections." Then I just followed the steps from the book. I wrote the zone tasks on notebook paper and used that for a reference. Also, I think all the info you would need is on her website, then you could just print or write down the tasks and keep track of which week is each zone. By the way, I really need this thread. My housekeeping skills are....not great. I am moving into a smaller home (brand new,yay) in a couple of months and I want to do better.
  13. seeking, this is an awesome thread idea! Honestly, I am in survival mode in my own life and have not felt a lot of physical, mental, or spiritual energy to try to do any good in the world. I will be considering small things I am able to do.
  14. Following along. My dd is going into her senior year. She works part time and has a social life. We are buying a new home and I will feel better with adding in some more income to my part time work at home job. I am applying for a full time warehouse job and just got a call for an interview (yikes) working in the school system's extended day program (part time) . Changes are in the air for many of us. :willy_nilly:
