  1. This! Excellent program. My kids watched it all the time when they were little. I even enjoyed watching it, entertaining and gets the point across.
  2. I monitor all my emails from my phone, rarely my computer anymore. I have 2 gmail accounts, one for online shopping orders/coupons/junk and the other I use for personal (sports, church, kids' school communication, etc). They both operate under the same email icon so it's really easy to access either one. It's also nice to click on any dates mentioned in emails and enter an event on google calendar. DH has his own, no way would I want to sift through his. Any kids related activity gets both of our email addresses when signing up.
  3. Yes, definitely a second opinion, even if for just ease of mind that the plan is on the right track. I would seek out a spine surgeon, even if you have to travel. Ask around, ask everyone you know for recommendations. DH bulging disk finally felt better after about 2-3 weeks of ibuprofen every 8 hours consistently, muscle relaxers, epidural injection, frequent PT and PT massage and alternating heat and ice. He had numb and tingly feet, so he was very close to needing surgery but the inflammation finally decreased before that point. The surgeon recommended micro surgery with very short rec
  4. I would say it's more awkward and mildly uncomfortable. It's only been painful when I had a tender cyst and even then the techs were as gentle as possible.
  5. I have the same hair type and I'm still trying to figure it out! What doesn't work for me are shampoos and conditioners to soften the hair; they are too heavy and end up making my hair limp. I also prefer mousse, it defines the curl best versus creams that can be too heavy. My favorite products are Kenra platinum and TIGI/Bed Head head (I do like their creams). These are more expensive, but Ulta runs really good sales every so often making them fairly affordable, as well as keeping a point/reward system that helps keep cost down as well. I also avoid ANYTHING advertising protein in i
  6. Totally unprofessional. However, unless they were actually called a name (versus using the swear word as an adjective) I'd let it go.
  7. Definitely soft cover! The covers on hardbacks are annoying and they generally cost more. So much easier to toss a softcover in a purse too.
  8. I would contact your local office on aging, I assume most communities have them. They are a great resource for answering your exact questions. They may even be able to connect you with adult day cares and other such offerings. I completely agree with getting legal paperwork in order as well ASAP. Perhaps even start inquiring about assisted living facilities; that would make me nervous to leave her home alone with memory issues, if indeed that's what it turns out to be. Our area has an excellent geriatric medical clinic, but that may be a rare service. They are fantastic at doing extremely
  9. In this case I would refund his money. Then relist it and be specific that it will not be disassembled and buyer is responsible for that at time of transport.
  10. I received a package from Target yesterday from UPS. I happened to be right by the door when he delivered, and I'm pretty certain I heard him snap a pic of the packages sitting there. I was surprised but wasn't creeped out. I actually thought it was a good idea as we have had packages disappear in our neighborhood recently.
  11. I love Soma for myself. They last a long time and the sales reps are very good at helping find the best fit/size. Dd is too large for Soma (cup size F or H at last check), so I'm off to go look at Bravissimo (suggestion I found on FB).
  12. Hempz is my favorite. All the ones I've tried smell so yummy! You can find them in salons.
  13. I'm so glad someone else remembered it too! Now I'm going to have to look up the theme song. :)
  14. The only one I remember specifically after school was After School Specials. Others that I loved: Muppet Babies Punky Brewster Today's Special (Nickelodeon) Sesame Street Bozo the clown Pee Wee's Playhouse Brady Bunch Reading Rainbow (at school) DeGrassi Jr High (at school) Just the Ten of Us Facts of Life (favorite)
  15. I get terrible neck pain without a supportive, small pillow. My latest remedy is Sobakawa Cloud pillow. It's not super soft but gives the support I need. I got mine from BB&B, the price was very reasonable with 20% off coupon.
  16. Even with that low of mileage I would not do it and drive cross country. There could be major issues from it not being run on a regular basis. (disclaimer, I'm not a mechanic, but DH is a pretty good one and he wasn't interested in my great uncles really low mileage/old vehicle, and sure enough it recently needed the transmission replaced) I wonder what it would cost to have it shipped to you?
  17. Chicken wild rice soup (google Uncle Ben's version), my kids LOVE this. I use rotisserie chicken in it and buy a loaf of French bread as a side. Also just made biscuits and gravy for breakfast, my boys kept saying how good it was. (I cheated and used pre made biscuits and sausage gravy powdered mix) but it was perfect for a cold day.
  18. Same issue here, if not bigger back when she swam swim team. TYR brand fit well, IIRC she wore a sports bra underneath as well. For recreational swim we LOVE Athleta. She had to try on several styles in store and order online from the store itself (free shipping that way), but they fit beautifully and are flattering.
  19. We had a Culligan reverse osmosis system. It was pricey but loved it. Got rid of it when we moved and had city water but I wish we would have kept it. It's pricey but was reliable and very happy with it. There are different models you can choose from, which is nice depending on your needs and budget.
  20. Yay! I'm glad you had a good experience!! For me, it's not easy at 40 to find clothes that aren't too young or old looking. I love that they are honest with me and tell me what looks good or doesn't, I think that's why I end up with pieces that I love long term. And I agree, terrific clearance!
  21. I've recommended Dress Barn on the board several times. I really like their clothes. The quality is excellent and seem to last me for years and most of their items are very flattering. I like that they follow the latest trends, without being too trendy. They are slightly on the higher priced side, but have really good sales especially if you sign up on their text notifications. The latest code is 25% off your total regularly priced purchase with code SNOW25. You could set yourself a budget and create your own Stitch Fix, just return what you don't like. :) If you get a chance to go to the
  22. I have a Dohm. Worth the money. Or at least I used to have one...my kids have taken it from me and currently Ds (10) uses it.
  23. I have been wondering as well! Hope all is well with her DH!
  24. I have the enviro cloth, window towel, dusting mitt, dusting stick among a few other items. I like them. I don't think I'll ever order anymore items though, too pricey for me.
