  1. I use 8”-9” soaker drip line in my raised beds. For a 3 ft bed, I would run 4 lines.
  2. My teen (17) has started a Minecraft Bedrock Edition Realm and would love to find some new members! This is for advanced players. He would like to play with a group on a regular basis. If your teen is interested, please send me a private message and I will send you his discord info.
  3. Duck Easy Liner is terrible! And expensive! I spent $200 on shelf liner a few months ago and now it is all bunched up in the drawers. It's okay under plates and bowls and so-so under drinking glasses. You definitely cannot slide things on it without it shifting. A similar product I used 10 years ago was wonderful, so I'm not sure why this was so disappointing.
  4. Cobra has a 60 day retroactive period to make the premium payment. I believe we had to elect to accept coverage, but we did not pay immediately. Instead, I put the payment in an envelope on the fridge. I instructed my mom to mail off the check should we end up in the hospital. We ended up not needing to use the insurance over that two month time period and were able to save thousands of dollars on premiums. This was incredibly helpful during a time when no income was coming in! If it turns out your unemployment lasts longer than 60 days, you would have to make those back payments in order to continue coverage. This was several years ago, so you may want to double check to be sure that this is still how it works.
  5. You can scan right in the notes app on the iPhone. Open a new note and click on the camera icon to select the scan option. It works great.
  6. Superfine #0000 steel wool works wonders. Moisten and rub. Rinse steel wool off frequently. Do a small spot first to be sure it doesn’t etch your door. I tried this as a last resort when getting my house ready to sell. It worked great and I now use this in my new home. It will also remove soap scum and hard water spots off tiles and fixtures.
  7. How about Christmas crackers? They are pretty simple to make. You can include the traditional paper hat and joke for everyone and then personalize the trinket. Everyone would get a cohesive experience, but you wouldn’t have to think of a gift idea that works for all. You could do something like nail polish/chapstick/makeup for the ladies, hair clips/necklaces for the little girls, matchbox car/action figure for little boys, keychain bottle opener or flashlight/pocket knife for the men, etc.
  8. My sympathies go out to you. Does he know how to play Simon Says? Playing Simon Says was my secret weapon when using public restrooms with little kids. I was able to control their movements, prevent them from peeking under stalls and unlocking the door. (Also helpful for privacy, “SS, close your eyes” lol) I probably sounded like a crazy lady in the restroom stall, but it was effective. Obviously wouldn’t work before surgery, but in other public situations would giving him a lollipop, or something he *could* lick help? I have even seem some with calming ingredients such as chamomile. When my kids have had surgery, they have been given some medicine upon intake or before the IV was inserted to help calm them. Perhaps you could request this? Surgery day is always difficult — little tummies are hungry, mommies are stressed, and behaviors are amplified.
  9. Check out — make a free account and then search “Highland games” or some variant. There are a bunch of similar organizations. You can view their 990 tax documents. There you will find their organization type as well as their mission statement. In my experience, most festival type organizations are 501(c)3.
  10. Do you have a little free library near you? You could drop off a book he has read and pick out a new one. It’s so sweet of you to do this for your husband. It’s always easiest to give up the extra work and thoughtfulness in stressful times, but is when it is needed the most!
  11. My son is the same height and 10 pounds lighter. Dickies flat front slim khakis size 18 fit. I think they have an adjustable waistband. Amazon carries them with free returns.
  12. I saw a parrot in Target the other day. Not perched on a shoulder or even on the shopping cart handle. Nope, it was chilling in the seat of the cart.
  13. Maybe a crossbody phone case would work for you:
