    Touchy-Feely Doctor... Should I Stay or Should I Go?

    Definitely trust your gut; that thigh squeeze is **way** too friendly. Also, no one else being in the room raises huge flags as well. I was sexually abused as a child, and I go out of my way to only see female doctors whenever possible. (didn't mean to use bold)

    Thank you all.

    I'm glad things went well for you; hoping your p. report is positive as well. Thank-you for posting this as I am calling on Monday to return to doc to talk to her about setting up my partial hysto. due to uterine fiberoids. I'm dreading having surgery, but need to go and get it taken care of.

    Non-traditional holidays meals?

    Yes, for like the last 4-5 years, we started having T-Bones on the grill, shrimp, baked potatoes, and salad for Christmas Day. This year for Christmas Eve, we're going to have chili and cheeseburger soup, some type of sandwiches, possibly Philly steak or something using sourdough bread, 1-2 different types of salads (made ahead), and raw vegetables with the ranch dip. Starting next year for Thanksgiving, we're going with soup and sandwiches as well.
  4. . Yes, I feel like an outsider occasionally. But I also don't try to fit in or seek out friends. I guess **because** I feel like an outsider. lol It seems to run in the family (DD experiences this difficulty also). I'm a loner though, whereas DD would love to fit in somewhere. I dream of the day she will find a friend. It's too bad you're halfway around the world, Stella. I would enjoy hanging with you.

    Is this 2018? Someone tell this woman

    I saw this. She's totally unfit for office; I hope she loses.

    Design a basic education plan

    Thank-you, Maize, so much for putting up this post. Like Zoo Keeper stated above, we **also** have had numerous issues brewing here for years. (And thank-you Zoo Keeper for phrasing it so eloquently; it's been a long year and I just couldn't find my own words to describe it. Thank-you again.) I've had to change my expectations to save my sanity/health(pre-existing condition) while trying to insure that my child gets a good education for her future. It's definitely a balancing act and can be so stressful. At this point, I take it day by day.

    US people: Who has voted?

    DH and I both voted by A. ballot at least three weeks ago. There was no way we were missing this election; DD (16 in January) stated she can't wait until she can vote. ?

    Do you answer your door to strangers?

    DH will talk to J. Witness (and other religious groups) when they go through the neighborhood, but I refuse to. He views it as they **have** come to socialize. lol I just let him answer the door when he's home.

    Do you answer your door to strangers?

    I never answer the door and don't feel guilty; my husband says I'm anti-social.

    Locking up the house

    On the front of our house, between the inside and outside doors, it's triple locked. Always. And we no longer use this entrance. We live too close to train tracks, DH works nights, we have an extremely nosy neighbor on one side, and we have three dogs that bark at the drop of a hat from every single noise, so our windows are always closed and locked. Our back door is always double locked. We have an enclosed area for the dogs that has a locked gate. We used to have outside surveillance system (five cameras); I'm leaning going back to that. We've had extensive problems with the aforementioned neighbor due to trespassing, vandalism, verbally saying they own part of our lot, etc. We've never had an alarm system. Locks and deadbolts on every door.

    Simple poll about air conditioning

    Central Air and ceiling fans in every bedroom and living room. We're remodeling the kitchen and will be losing the fan in there. We're in Iowa and have already had hot weather. The heat index rose to 102* two days ago.
