  1. I'm only popping in for a minute, but want to say that I appreciate this thread. And to add to @StellaM's good mental health news, in the Netherlands there is a 20% reduction in suicides at the moment. Nobody can explain it, but I'm happy about it.
  2. Yep, we have those too in the Netherlands. Makes me want to scream! Threads like this always make me a bit nervous. We don't vaccinate against chicken pox here, and somehow all my kids haven't had it yet....which makes me worried about my eldest especially. And noone, really noone, is getting their tithers checked and vaccines updated as an adult. My family doctor would think I am crazy if I suggest such a thing. But I agree it would be a really smart idea with my general weak health. Hmmm, what to do....
  3. I can declutter/KonMari anything.....except books. I have always had the rule, for my books, that I only buy books that I use or will definitely re-read. But I now also have a lot of books that I might not re-read, but one of my children might want to read when they are a bit older. And my library is getting rid of soooo many good books, Dutch books and the few English books they had. They still might have Stephen King, but when I last checked, they didn't have 1984 anymore. I am getting rid of all books my youngest has grown out of, so that is something.
  4. It's the same way in the Netherlands! I was reading this thread and kept thinking 'What's the problem?? Of course you organise a party!' But apparently this is not so in America? Ha, learn something new every day! :-) So, my vote: throw yourself a party, your friends will love to celebrate with you!
  5. I'm here! Looking forward to talking about Middlemarch. I'm really enjoying it, but I'm pretty sure I'm missing a lot of context. I ordered a copy with lots of notes, but it hasn't arrived yet, so I'll keep reading my Gutenberg e-book. Lady Florida, please keep seperate threads for the different sections, please.
  6. I am suddenly a member of : Chinese Homeschoolers Pregnancy without Dr Fiesta Texas Peeps Current Events I'm NOT interested in these clubs. I used to be a member of: Literary Hub (active and I really, really miss it) Minimalism Classical Unschoolers, or something like that and several others that I can't remember. I don't mind those other clubs (they were not active anymore), but would really like to return to Literary Hub.
  7. I'm so sorry! Wishing you strength. :grouphug:
  8. Thanks, Laura. I also love the silent alarm of my flex! I'm not sure I need the heart rate function of the Charge, but I do like that it counts stairs.
  9. Thanks for the review, NavyMommy. Dd11's fitbit won't charge anymore and dh suggested giving mine to her and buying a Charge for me. I'm still undecided.
  10. That's me :lol: . I'm 3000 steps above number 2 :smilielol5: . I'm soooooo making a screenshot!
  11. I have checked 40 pages of old posts, found 2 pictures in my posts and several pictures in quotes from others, and removed them all.
  12. I checked my attachments and searched for .jpg and .gif and found nothing. But I know for sure that I have posted at least one picture (of my shoes, made by me, so not a problem), so that makes me nervous that I am somehow missing things. I don't remember posting pictures, but I might have quoted others who did.
  13. The Flex. I like it very much, but it is annoying that is doesn't register bicycling.
  14. A new model...ohhh, if it tracks bicycling, I will definitely buy it!
