  1. I was lambasted by my aunt about so many things I did wrong, according to her upper class social etiquette, at my wedding. This was one of them. Our rehearsal included only those who would be in the wedding and she insisted, as an out of town guest, that she should have been invited. We have a family friend who will be marrying a man from an eastern European country next year sometime. They've decided to have their first wedding in his country so all his relatives can participate. Then they will have either a very small wedding or, more likely, a reception in the community she grew up in.
  2. Approximately every 2 or 3 weeks, it appears I'm logged out on my phone. I've been able to get to the site by clicking on "My Account" on confirm I'm logged in, and accessing the site after I've clicked on "My Account." However, today I'm not able to access the site on mobile at all and I don't see that I'm logged in. When I try to sign in, it tells me "Unknown email address. Check again or try your username." I tried clearing the cache and logging in with only my username as well to no avail. I'm able to use my desktop to get on the site, so it doesn't seem to be a problem on my end. Help!
  3. Dh and I went to get glasses today at a place we'd never been before. I knew I wanted the Chemistrie glasses again because I don't want to use bifocals. They have a system that layers lenses using magnetic clip-ons. So the distance vision is my regular glasses. Then I can add a clip-on for my reading glasses. I also added a sunglasses clip-on for about $75 more. My previous pair of Chemistrie glasses used the Chemistrie frames and this optician said I could choose any pair I wanted and they'll create the clip-ons based on the shape of those glasses. I'm curious about how well the clip-ons will
  4. Due to my prescription, including astigmatism and prisms in both eyes, I can't order online. Most online places won't take scripts with prisms. I need to go to a good clinic to ensure I'm looking through the right part of the lens. My glasses always run about $500, even with good eye insurance.
  5. When my dh was deployed, I found myself ramping up over every little thing the kids did wrong. I found myself flying off the handle with every very minor irritation. Someone here recommended evening primrose oil, so I started taking it. It took the edginess off and I became a normal human being again. This was 8 years ago and I've continued taking it. I've been told it's supposed to be good for breast health, but Quill, double check that it's ok for you given your cancer.
  6. That is crazy! We haven't fully moved to online statements, but I spoke with dh last night and we decided we will use online statements for everything we can. We'd talked about it years ago and decided against it because we wanted easy access to our paper statements. It's too dangerous to not know where our statements and bills might end up or who might use them for nefarious purposes.
  7. Our neighborhood has seen what looks like random mail dumps left in the grass. The mail doesn't have addresses in our neighborhood, but in several different ones and seems only to happen when we have a substitute carrier. Some of the mail pictured was from banks and governmental agencies. We're not sure if it's theft or problems with delivery.
  8. I would probably grow it, then dry it to put in my seasoning mix. I might see if I can find some now or this fall, plant it, and wait for spring. That's usually the recommendation for later planting here. It's too hot during the summer to plant, so we plant in the fall, let the roots take hold, and see our bounty from perennials in the spring before it gets hot again.
  9. I think I'm going to see if I can find some Mexican Oregano next spring for my garden. I've just used regular (Italian?) oregano in my taco seasoning. Thanks for looking that up!
  10. This is where I am. I don't want to be afraid of technology and I'd like to be able to keep up with it. Sometimes that means I have to give up on preconceived notions and safety. Dh finally got a smartphone in March due to covid. He likes the options with it, but doesn't want them on his phone. That means I'm the one doing everything on my phone. When I ask him to look something up on Maps, he tells me he doesn't know how. I don't want to be like that. I want to function with tech. We just downloaded Spotify for my mom while we were visiting her and she loves it! I put some music I though
  11. My dd's both use Venmo. It's really easy to transfer money for shared utilities or if you need to repay someone. There are some features I don't much care for, but I've used it attached to my cc. I'm planning to attach it to a savings account at a different bank than our regular one.
  12. I didn't know that, so I went to check on the chili powder I'd purchased from Costco. Its McCormick Gourmet chili powder has salt listed as its 3rd ingredient! I've been trying to be aware of how much salt is in the food dh eats per the doctor's order, but I would never have thought about my chili powder. Thank you!
  13. Is Cuban oregano the same as Mexican oregano? Cuban oregano isn't actually in the oregano family, but it smells really good!
  14. This is what I use. It makes a fair amount, but we make tacos frequently and I use it for seasoning beans and chicken with it. You can adjust spice up or down as you'd like and eliminate the salt. If you're not using it for tacos, I would also remove the corn starch. I also frequently toss in some chipotle powder for smokiness.
