  1. This is just one example as to why I wait a few weeks at least before updating my ios. That being said, this one is hard for me to wait out because I'm beyond excited for dark mode!
  2. Oh my. That is a beauty! I need a butcher block so that I can use my cleaver without worrying about damage to cutting boards and countertops. I feel like DH might think one that size is a bit overkill. 🤪 But now I want it!
  3. I run two Proboards forums, as well as participate on two others. If you have questions, feel free to PM me!
  4. You can set up an internet forum with that can be accessed via computer or phone using the tapatalk app. The forums are free to create and use, and they make it super easy to get one started.
  5. My contribution to this thread is Hotel On The Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford. I read it this summer for the first time and have recommended it half a dozen times already. It's set in the WWII era, but not where novels of that time are usually set. Instead we're taken to the Seattle area and the Japanese-Americans during that time. Told through the eyes of a twelve year old boy named Henry who befriends a Japanese-American girl, the book showed me a piece of history that I'd admittedly not given much thought to before. Occasionally we'd get a chapter about Henry as an old man many years later, and by the end of the book these two storylines came together in such a beautiful way.
  6. Agree with @Terabith! By itself, when I finished The Sparrow, I definitely felt traumatized. Getting the cracks to the story filled in by Children of God totally changed The Sparrow into a much better book.
  7. Yes! This book was Amazing. I would read a bit, and then have to set it down and think about what I had just read. The best way I can describe the book was that it was rich. It was like eating a decadent dessert and needing to pause to savor the richness before returning for another bite. I laughed, I cried, and I really felt like I was a part of that world for a time. When I turned the last page I couldn't decide whether to cry because I was sad it was over, or stand up and give the book a standing ovation. Truly a wonderful book.
  8. I think you have my favorite post of the day! Way to just git 'er done!
  9. Episode 1: I think this was a combination of the factors you mentioned, plus that shake was not just a drink on top of a meal, it was a meal-in-a-can. Waaaaay too much for her tummy at that time so it came back up. My DS tossed his cookies once (violently) after forcing himself to drink an entire strawberry custard shake after he'd decided he was full. It did not take long at all for that shake to come back up. Episode 2: Her tummy, tastebuds, and sensory memories are remembering the prior incident with that chocolate shake, making her feel nauseated. I don't know about other people, but when I throw a food up, it is a very long time, if ever, that I can even taste the offending food without feeling nauseated. DS still can't think about drinking a strawberry shake and that was several years ago. Episode 3: In episode 2 she had chocolate milk followed by chocolate shake. Now she's having ice cream with chocolate syrup. Any chance the chocolate milk was made with the same chocolate syrup? If not, the combo of ice cream with whipped cream and chocolate syrup is really not that different from a shake flavor-wise. It might be something more serious, but I think I would start with the idea that the chocolate flavor is triggering that digestive memory and causing flashbacks and struggles.
  10. I had no interest in using their 3.0 product because of all the glitches and was glad that I already had discs on hand for DS to start school tomorrow. Only it's being installed on a new computer for a new year and the serial code comes up as invalid. 🙄 The website tells me they have issues now with MY product as well. I sent an e-mail, but I work at 5:30 am, and DS will do schoolwork while I'm gone. So he won't do algebra tomorrow and will start out the year behind. So annoying. I hope they respond tomorrow so it's only one day that I can maybe talk him into doing extra of later this week.
  11. I think for those in the dorms, junk food for sure, regardless of the allergy situation. If you accidentally send something they can't eat, there will most certainly be someone else in the hallway who will enjoy it! I know my DD has already been hosting a group of kids to play some video games and being able to pull out a snack or bag of candy to share would be so awesome!
  12. Isn't it still a thing though where ANY working cellphone can be used to dial 911, regardless of whether it has wi-fi or is connected to service? I remember donating old phones to a women's shelter several years ago just for that purpose.
  13. Can you use google voice? It's free to download and use. I used it briefly when looking for insurance quotes recently and it worked well for me.
  14. Oh that looks scrumptious and not too sweet! Maybe a bowl of fresh berries to break up the richness of the icebox cake.
  15. Lentil taco filling is surprisingly similar to meat. I don't serve it straight up to my crew, but I do mix it half and half. My DS doesn't care for it, but will eat it. Everyone else enjoys it just as much as straight up tacos. I prefer using the lentils only. Lentil Taco Filling 1 teaspoon oil 2/3 cup finely chopped onion 1 small clove garlic, minced 2/3 cup dried lentils, rinsed 1 tablespoon taco seasoning, or to taste 1 2/3 cups chicken broth (or veggie broth if vegetarian) 2/3 cup salsa Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion and garlic until tender, about 5 minutes. Mix lentils and taco seasoning into onion mixture; cook and stir for 1 minute. Cover lentils with chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer until lentils are tender, 25 to 30 minutes. Uncover and cook until mixture is slightly thickened, 6 to 8 minutes. Mash lentils slightly; stir in salsa.
