  1. A beautiful tribute to her. And a reminder to me that my actions and attitudes do influence people, for better or worse.
  2. I think there has been a cultural shift between generations. My mom had friends for years as well. She had to move a couple of years ago, but she and her best friend (both in their 90s) still talk on the phone occasionally. My generation has had careers, moves, and so on, that have made it more difficult to keep up those long-term relationships. People are busy, tired, and thus the friendships that are related to the group thing have dominated. It's a sad shift, imo.
  3. I'm sorry, Regentrude. This is such a weird time. For myself, I find I feel much more exhausted than usual, due to all issues Covid, plus other things going on, and I don't have much left. I'm so sorry you feel alone in these days. It may be that some in your circles are feeling similar to me.
  4. I'm behind on this thread... I don't think they made snap and go's when ours were babies. And the umbrella stroller was definitely for when they were a bit older, or with towels to help support them. We lived in a town where we walked most places, and a good stroller was a must have. If you are still thinking of a big, together gift, the rocker/recliner sounds wonderful if she doesn't have one. I spent a lot of time in ours, with feeding, rocking, and later reading books. Or I would read to our 4yo while feeding one baby (the three of us in the recliner), and rock the other baby in
  5. At birth, due to a large weight difference, my identicals didn't look too identical to me. As they got older, they still had markers that were clear to me. However, when I look back at photos, oh my! I can still usually tell them apart, but it isn't always as easy as it seemed at the time!
  6. I, too, thought of the Outliers book. I also thought of this one, The Gift of Dyslexia: https://www.amazon.com/Gift-Dyslexia-Smartest-Revised-Expanded/dp/0399535667/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=the+gift+of+dyslexia&qid=1603109657&sr=8-3 I believe work certainly contributes to success, and helps set you up for it much more than not working. As to luck--there are always people who are going to have more advantages than you and others who have less advantages, and it's best to work as hard as you can within your own parameters. If you think it (mostly) depends on luck, then perso
  7. I second the double umbrella stroller. I can't remember the brand I had, but it was much more practical than those huge double strollers. We used it a long time.
  8. https://www.amazon.com/Cosplaysky-Hooded-Halloween-Costume-Knight/dp/B06WRTLV21/ref=sr_1_16_sspa?crid=3HT7MYMTD4BVU&dchild=1&keywords=jedi+costume&qid=1602724895&sprefix=jedi+co%2Caps%2C305&sr=8-16-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExV0dTSFVEVTVEU0VRJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNTgyNzQ1MUo3VDFQOU9LWE5LNCZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwNDkyNjE2M09BOTA4ODhIWDRLOCZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX210ZiZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU= Here's a Jedi robe costume. It'd be pretty comfortable.
  9. I was just going to suggest what @Ottakeedid--just have him try them on over clothes, to avoid the need for a dressing room. But that was before I saw you decided to order online.
  10. At home, I don't often movie snack because it's usually after we've just had dinner. Maybe ice cream or frozen blueberries (I eat blueberries for dessert fairly often). But in the theatre--it's gotta be Milk Duds. I can't believe nobody has mentioned them yet. I do like popcorn a lot, but in the theatre, it always smells a whole lot better than it tastes.
  11. Yes, it's this one. For some reason, I thought it was something new. ETA that I didn't notice the date--I thought it had just come out.
  12. No, it was a recent one in the past day or so about 70% of people who get covid have worn masks or something like that.
  13. Okay, I'm in a rush right now and can't look it up. Was it in this thread that someone posted the CDC's thing on masks? My supervisor's supervisor (who is indirectly my boss too) is very much anti-mask. I am the only person in my workplace who wears one. (I don't wear it in my office, but I do wear it in general areas and in staff meetings.) I know it irritates him, as well as his very-verbal-on-the-subject admin asst, when people wear them. He just gloatingly posted that link on his fb page. Ugh. I don't say anything to anybody about how they should be wearing masks, I don't criticize them, e
  14. She's so adorable! Just enough little wrinkles in her forehead. Our shelters never have cute puppies like that, or at least I never have seen any. They are always the breeds we definitely do not want. 😞
