    Question for pool owners

    Wow, I can’t imagine having all these rules. The pool I had growing up was 3/4 the size of an Olympic pool with half of it being 10’ deep. From about age 10, I was allowed to swim alone, eat and drink in the pool, and when I was about 13 it was like a right of passage to try to beat my dad’s record of 36 straight hours in the pool so I swam while everyone was asleep too. No gates or anything. The only that ever got me yelled at was running around the pool, especially when I was already wet. Everything else was A-ok.

    Help with metronome work

    Honestly, it's taken DS about 5 years to really be able to work with the metronome properly. I think it may have been an issue with his APD/hearing loss, but I can't be sure. Anyways, we just kept at it and now he doesn't willingly turn on the metronome, but when he does, it's not a mess.

    S/o Getting Rid of it All

    Can you look at it like you invested in your child and the curriculum served it's purpose by preparing him for xyz. Therefore, you've already recouped your investment. Maybe..

    What do you serve soup in?

    Bowls. I've found that plates don't work so well.

    Not wanting to risk it

    I've always thought that that would be the perfect sort of relationship: separate houses, separate everything, but living next door to each other for something of a long-term, committed, friends-with-benefits relationship.
  6. Back in October, I decided to only eat when I was hungry. I didn’t really have a reason to change (I’m overweight but I like me) so I’m not sure why I did. Turns out, I’m only really hungry once a day around 4pm and I’ve lost 20 pounds already. I’ve got 50-60 more pounds to lose to get back into my USMC shape which I’m using as a goal since I don’t really have any idea what I’m working toward. I actually like only eating one meal a day; if I decide to start tracking carbs or sugars or whatever, I won’t be doing it through the whole day which sucks (for me anyways). Food isn’t always on my mind and I have more energy, even during 9 hour days of manual labor. I am going to add in weight lifting in the next week or so.

    Not wanting to risk it

    Yeah, I can see having a good enough one, especially if you don't believe in The One (I don't).
  8. I dunno. DS is my only so I guess I'm saving curriculum (most of it) for grandkids...I say you're fine 🙂

    Dr Hive, this is reasonable, yes ?

    Yes....and since she didn’t post during her yesterday, I was wishing her good thoughts. Geez.

    I hope this break in posting means y’all are at the hospital and your DH is getting the helps he needs. Keeping you in my prayers Stella!

    Strange thing happened...

    I was going to say put all the snow back onto his walk so that he might think the gray-haired lady in a dress shoveling his walk with just in his head.

    And now her watch is done

    I am so sorry 😞
  13. I moved from SoCa to Idaho. The two things that really stood out were DMV fees which are much much lower in this LCOL area but also the types of stores that seem to be geared towards low income families. Where I lived in SoCa had maybe 3 thrift stores and they were terrible; garage sales seemed to be the same way. Here, I can find amazing thrift and consignment stores for EVERYTHING on almost every corner. There are other things too that make it so much easier to save money, but those really made an impression and still do 10 years later.
  14. So I tried to come up with my GRAND IDEAS list, but there just weren't 52 things that I want to do all year long.

    According to common sense media, game of thrones has more stuff in it. I haven't watch GoT. And honestly, there didn't seem to be a whole lot of it in Outlander; I mean there were some episodes that were built around specific scenarios, but IMO, it was necessary, not gratuitous. Except for that one 30 second blip in like the first episode.
