  1. BTDT. It really stinks big time. You are doing the right thing for your family.
  2. We have US mobile. They are on the Verizon network around here. Around $20/month
  3. I drank a lot of water and gatorade the day of my shot...maybe it helped.
  4. I had zero side effects except for a sore arm.
  5. Echoing the others. I wish you well in this next chapter.
  6. I'm sorry, Dawn. My mom had several falls. She had an underlying neurological condition but it definitely got worse towards the end of life. After each fall it was considered a qualifying event and she could obtain more physical therapy. My mom was in assisted living, They do require the fall alert buttons, but she never pushed it after she fell. They always found her during their regular check-ins. We tried to get her to be proactive and push it before she needed to get up, but her memory was such that that didn't happen. After seeing your latest update, I would definitely be returning to the ER.
  7. This is what I do too. Walmart even sells it as "sleep aid".
  8. Dug and moved lots of dirt for a dry creek bed. We will place rocks in it tomorrow.
  9. Agreeing that ceiling hugging is the way to go.
  10. This is more of what I am thinking...some way to disguise everything a bit. Either pots/fake rocks to cover the covers, etc. I just need inspiration!
  11. The drainfield is all grass and not changing. This is over the tanks.
  12. I have 5 areas that I need attention. I need some inspiration and would love to see pictures of your similar spaces. Here's what we currently have: Area 1-front of the house. We took out some windows and I need to fill in the space with either a taller plant/tree or a hardscape feature. The hosta and day lilies will be split and moved to area 2. I plan to move in some sun loving perennials from area 4 up here. Area 2-pine trees. This space is 32 x 60, I will be bringing in dirt. This area will have hosta, and day lilies as well as some lily of the valley and ferns from area 3. I may try to plant grass or make a path through the space. All of the bigger boulders and rocks can be moved to any area. Area 3-behind the house. The ferns, and shade plants will all get moved under the pine trees. This space needs a patio and fire pit added. Area 4-sun perennials. These will all get pulled out. Whatever doesn't get used in other areas will go. Area 5-septic system. I am looking to primarily hardscape this area with rock/minimal plants.
  13. North shore of MN by Lake Superior, so many beautiful things to see. MN has tons of great state parks too.
  14. Oh, that's good to know, I may just have to bring the bigger one.
  15. Does anyone have any favorites that they cook in the mini instant pot that feed a family of four? I do have a six-quart pot as well but I was hoping to bring the mini for space consideration. I am debating bringing it along on vacation. In years past we have brought a small grill but there might not be room for it this year, so I'm trying to come up with some creative ideas so we don't just eat cold meat sandwiches all week.
  16. We love our chairs from REI. They now make an ultra light version too. It folds up to be the size of a quart nalgene bottle.
  17. Quick dry microfiber towel Lightweight flip flops for around camp Darn Tough wool socks (2 pair, alternate each day) I would emphasize this as being as important/more important than the clean underwear. Try to avoid blisters. We each have an aluminum cup and a lightweight spoon that we use for all meals/hot drinks Water Bottle Battery Pack to recharge a phone if he is leaving it in airplane mode and using it only for pictures, you should be able to make that timeframe (assuming it is allowed)
  18. BLT's on Sourdough tonight French Dip Sandwiches (cooking the meat in the Instant Pot) tomorrow
  19. If he is able, I would call each together when you are with him and have him authorize the address change. That way you can navigate the menu/getting a real person and he can make the change. Have the new address on a paper so he can read it. We let mom's DL expire and took her to get a state id when we could.
  20. How is it going? Hopefully today was short.
  21. They are so good. I don't like milk or dark chocolate. White chocolate Twix are wonderful too!
