  1. A gift card to Guitar Center, if your city has one.
  2. Aw, kudos to you, Chris. You're a great mom, mother-in-law, and grandmother. Hope you have a fabulous visit with all!
  3. Iherb and Lucky Vitamin have good prices. Sign up for their emails. And here is an interview with Bob himself :laugh:
  4. Lived in various size places growing up, always lived in large cities as an adult (because that's where the jobs are...), including two overseas stints. I want to retire to the country or a smaller city, though I would want to be close to amenities (healthcare, shopping, etc...)
  5. I liked your post Patty, but it deserves to be quoted as well. Such a reasonable approach to the twilight years. One of the main points I got was he recommended talking to the person going through end of life, and finding out what THEIR priorities are - how do they want to spend their last days and months, and THEN going about instilling ways in their life to make that happen.
  6. We moved my mom to my city 16 months ago. At that time we changed her Medicare from her state to my state. I called Medicare and gave them a list of her meds. They said based on her (fairly long) list of meds, her best bet was to go with Humana. We have been very happy with them, we get her meds through their mail service and haven't paid a dime copay on any of them. I remember I spent a long time on hold with Medicare (it is the government after all) but once I got through to a live person, it went very quickly.
  7. I would think this would be a big concern especially since you currently live in Orlando. ETA - should have read the whole thread before responding :)
  8. I'm close to 60 and I don't have experience with sexual predators. Thankfully.
  9. Europe is our favorite as well. Amazon periodically has it on sale.
  10. That's great about his attitude and about the beer and crackers :)
  11. You may know this, but this is called sundowners and is very common in elders. You can google to find out more. :grouphug: to you and your mom. I was worn out just reading your post. I didn't make this up but I try to repeat it to myself (and others dealing with elders - I just said it to a friend last night) - we are doing the best we can with the best we know.
  12. My dh wears a tie to work every day, he just throws it away when one gets a stain. It happens.
  13. My family (even the "big kids") enjoyed the creativity of Legoland.
  14. YES. I made my family go "for an hour" - we ended spending half a day there. The docents make it SO interesting.
