  1. I have prepped 2 small pans of lasagna….won’t be needed before Sunday, but maybe Monday. Freeze it? Or leave it in spare fridge which rarely gets opened… If I freeze it, it will need to be thawed in fridge as I need to use my toaster oven, twice to bake it. That will take another 24 hours… One has spinach and one doesn’t…picky eaters and all that…
  2. We have a “guest” room for our out of state visitors. At first I would borrow a pak n play when my grandkids would visit, but as the number of grand kids grew and came in batches of two,or three a year, we bought a used one for our guest room, that was up all the time. Our youngest granddaughter is now 2 and lives nearby, but rarely would actually nap in thr pak n play. She preferred someone to hold her, or she went home. We also had a blow up bed with a pillow and cover attached. It was loved ! I would wait and see what kind of Nappers your grandkids are, getting some input from their Mom. But if a pak play works best, You can find them easily on Craigslist. Just be sure to not buy some off brand. PakNplay brand go up and down easily. Another thought, some paknplay set ups include a diaper changing attachment that is quite handy!
  3. Costco can handle this. I just ordered some complicated reading glasses..no issues. I do have astigmatism. They do guarantee the glasses if they are not right. They will reorder them. My son had contacts that were not right, after three orders, they fully refunded his money. Eventually he gave up on contacts as several places could not make them for him to be comfortable wearing them. Therefore, I assume it was never Costco's fault. My son just couldn't tolerate that kind of lense.
  4. Love cooking on gas...hate cleaning a gas stove. During a remodel, we went with glass top stove. No regrets.
  5. Amazing! So encouraging, thanks for sharing. Just a comment on your push-ups. I don’t know this program at all . I have been working with a personal trainer who is all about adapting and meeting you where you are. Getting up and down off the floor are rediculously hard for me, so I do most of my workouts standing. Have you tried push-ups on a bar? Obviously I am working out in a gym (actually it’s small and In His garage...) where he has equipment, but I can do them at home on the back of a sofa, or a counter top.
  6. Pork chops baked with “cheesy” potatoes. I made it often when I was raising my family. I no longer eat this way, so the actual printed recipe is long gone, but I found this online. https://www.thespruceeats.com/pork-chop-and-hash-brown-bake-3059383
  7. Collagen, no flavor and she can put it in her morning coffee, or stir it into whatever soup, cottage cheese, etc. Bone broth to sip on. Good quality protein drink, like Core Power, Fairlife Nutrition plan, etc. There are better ones, but I don't have names in front of me.
  8. Because I am a seamstress and using my sewing shears would have been ..well, not good thing to happen, I bought dollar store scissors and gave one to each of my kids when they were old enough to keep track of it. Several years I found a very nice set of three at Costco. They go on sale for $7.50 several times a year. My kids have married and moved on and I ow have scissors in my kitchen, my office and my sewing room. I miss my kids. 😊
  9. My DIL does mine. She is short and climbs on counters to reach things when she is 8.5 months pregnant. The window over the sink doesn’t even slow her down.
  10. Apples and onions, sliced. salt and pepper. apricot jam with bbq sauce honey and equal parts water, little bit of apple cider vineger, minced garlic, salt and pepper. Thicken with corn starch when they’re done
  11. I have cellular shades in a bay window (2 sides with one large picture window). I have valances across the top and floor length panels on each end. They are sheer with some light embroidery on them. They wash easily and I hang them up wet. They are purely for decoration.
  12. 6’ 4 “ size 13 shoes. His wife is a very short (she’s not petite, just short) 5’ 2”
  13. Good idea, but it’s my office and scrapbooking room.
  14. I covet your closet. Mine have custom organizers in them, that I designed, but not in any way shape or form big enough. Can I admit I was glad when the last kid moved out from his bedroom next to mine so I could use his closet?
  15. Dreamergal....Put a counter in there, like an island in your kitchen. Handy when packing,,,store your suitcases in there. I would put drawers in the island if you don’t already have one..there would be no dressers in my bedroom if I had Thst size closet!
  16. Peacock is a new streaming channel we found on ROKu. on ther we found Escape to the Chataeu. We were hooked 15 mins into the first episode. British couple, and their 2 children, buy and updates a French chateau .
  17. I almost always buy large containers. I refill my small containers (sometimes I have to buy a cheap slice at the dollar store just for a new containers ) and FREEZE the originals.
  18. Married for 45 years and counting. We didn’t get a lot of gifts that were around more than 5 years...towels, sheets , Knick knacks I never wanted..wierd stuff. I got a crock pot I had until about 5 years ago. Corelle dishes Have changed patterns, but still all white...few pieces from the original set . Really I can’t think of anything still in use here. However, I do have a cookie jar from my Mom that was a wedding gift in ....1953!
  19. Yes, this is happening to us right now. There has been some help from the state, but one tenant is still months behind. Our hands are pretty tied to do anything but ride it out for now.
  20. I wen thru this two years ago. I had two,polyps, one was degrading and that was the cause of the bleeding. I did have a procedure, hysteroscopy I think it was called,to,remove them but everything was fine and has been fine since.
  21. When mine were just starting out, I chose the menu. Eventually, they could cook what they wanted after checking for ingredients. A family favorite came out of one of those nights! some kids need more direction, some can totally plan and carry thru. It doesn’t even connect with age, more with how willing and interested they are. BTW, hotdogs and chips would not necessarily be a complete menu.
