  1. What amazing pictures! She's beautiful, he's beautiful, and all the boys are beautiful! Your youngest though...I just want to squeeze those precious little cheeks. Congratulations to you all!
  2. This! I love thrift shopping for allowing me to play with styles. That way I don't feel guilty if I stop wearing something after a few times because it didn't quite look or work the way I wanted. I just drop it off at the thrift store and try again.
  3. Until this thread, I didn't know that not all cats ate all their food. We've probably had 10 cats through the years with 4 still alive and kicking and everyone ate every single bite of food. Cats are just weird and the vast spectrum of their personalities is mind blowing. LOL
  4. My example is more of my brain not at work. I knew I had a doctor's appointment scheduled for June 4th. I knew my DH had scheduled an appointment for repairs on my car on Friday. I knew Friday was the 4th and I knew the 4th was Friday but my brain still didn't put together the conflict in our schedules. Since our other vehicle is a motorcycle, which I can't drive, then one or the other needed to be cancelled. It wasn't until I got a text from my doctor yesterday reminding me of my appointment and seeing my appointment information in writing did I put 2 and 2 together. Geesh. How can one brain
  5. I finally have something recent to add to this thread. I had asked about good beach day items like chairs and cabanas. Someone recommend the Cool Cabana. I was super hesitant about the price. Yesterday was our first beach day with the new cabana. Oh my word was it easy going up and it was just as each coming down. I ordered their larger size and I'm glad I did. It was perfect for 3 adults and 2 small ones. I was almost too cool underneath it because it did it's job blocking the sun so well. 10 out of 10 for the Cool Cabana.
  6. I like the ones Costco carries. They come in packs of three so I'm able to leave glasses all over the house and always have a pair at hand.
  7. I also set a sleep timer. I set the first one for 30 minutes and if I'm still not asleep, I set it in 15 minute increments. The next day I'll set the audiobook back 10 minutes to hopefully reach the point where I nodded off.
  8. It's just so heart wrenching. I mean it literally feels like someone is pulling your heart out of your body. I am so incredibly sorry! For us, we woke up one day and just knew. She was no longer there with us even though she was still alive. That made the decision much easier. It was the last thing we could give her and to say thank you for all she had given us. We had 17 precious years.
  9. Do you have someone with you during your adventures? My DH will never be on board and my children and SOs are busy with their own adult lives and I'm scared to go on my own. But I want to. I really, really want to be that person.
  10. I am so sorry! My parents are 76 and 81 and what you are experiencing is one of my greatest fears. Hugs going out to you!
  11. The beach. As much of it it as I can get. I bought a Cool Cabana just so I can escape the sun but still enjoy the cool breezes and the sound of waves. I feel cocooned in my happy place with a book in my hand.
  12. I want to wake up to my pre-pandemic weight. Between being home and less active, I also suffered from an injury/illness (?) that kept me sedentary for over a month. DH was in charge of meals and shopping and he was not choosing healthy options. On top of all that, I was stress eating when DH broke his leg and was out of work for 3 months and when two of our cats became seriously ill. Now I'm set in bad eating habits and I'm having a hard time adjusting back. It's not good.
  13. I felt strange too. Still do but I finally made myself decide whether or not I trusted the vaccine to work and so now I'm going maskless too.
  14. My heart goes out to you! We've had no relationship with dh's side of the family but at least it was none and not bad. I can't even imagine looking the other way as my child was married. I mean, who does that?!
