  1. I have never heard of such a thing. I usually pick them up and toss them in the trash, thinking no one is coming back for it. I just carry our poop bag on the walk if they go early on. Maybe I'll start leaving bags I find along the road or trail assuming someone is coming back. Kelly
  2. When I have to pee I am not going to try and figure out who is where. As long as I'm not walking in on someone I'm going to pee as soon as I find an empty stall. I really don't care if someone is next to me. I don't have performance anxiety like Joey from friends 🙂 I don't understand why people answer their phones while in a public bathroom (private either, but at least I'm not there to hear the conversation). I was in a bathroom at Walmart when I heard a phone ring. I'm sitting there thinking, "Don't answer it, don't answer it." She answered it, and I heard, "I'm in the bathroom at Walmart. Yeah, my stomach isn't feeling well. I think it was something I ate." OMG! I did not need ANY of that information 🤮 Kelly
  3. It might be, it wasn't like that when I was in school in this same state. I haven't dealt with other districts so I have no idea how they work. It is possible that they have just given names to levels of credits.
  4. I'm very glad to hear this! Our school district has 3 diploma options: Honors, Regular, Core. We call the Core diploma the "I warmed a seat so I get a diploma". They do school work, but it is the minimal amount to graduate. I figure at least they are getting a diploma. A lot of these kids are on drugs, or just don't want to be there. When they turn their lives around at least they have a diploma. Kelly
  5. It made sense to me and it would to my youngest daughter. We don't see numbers as colors, though. I see them having genders. My daughter associates them with gender and personality. I've always felt odd numbers were male and even were female. My daughter was explaining to me how she sees them. It is fascinating because not all odd or even are the same gender and their personalities are extensive. Apparently, these are a form of synesthesia. Who knew?! Kelly
  6. We got these one year also. It was creepy, and made me angry. I hate pressure tactics! Kelly
  7. I know people on both sides of the political spectrum. I tend to be center, but will lean to either side depending on the issue. Anyway, I know far left and far right people who are really loud and obnoxious. I always want to tell them that they are so similar and could be great friends. I'm afraid both would kill me 🙂 I don't usually say much unless I think what is being said is harmful. My dad is a democrat that likes to call people who disagree with him horrible names and cut off relationships. I will call him out. At church there is a lady who won't ask a Muslim woman who works at Walmart for help because she said she assumes this lady won't help her anyway or might kill her. I had to call her out. Both of these people also do similar things outside of politics. My dad will cut off relationships if anyone disagrees with him on any subject. This lady at church is afraid of her shadow I think. Kelly
  8. Totally agree with your DD! Way too many legs. Here is my funny house centipede story. I'm not even sure what I was thinking, I wasn't thinking is the problem. When I see those suckers my brain goes numb. Anyway, there was one in my linen closet. Our big orange cat liked to chase them, and would kill them. So, my big idea was to put him on the top shelf of the linen closet to catch the sucker. Because shoving a 16 pound cat 2 feet above my head into a closet is a great idea! He freaked out on me, and I don't really remember a lot of what happened next. There was flailing, hissing, screaming (mine), fur flying, and a still alive centipede in my sheets. I now shake out my sheets whenever I pull them from the closet. And, I've never tried to shove a cat into that closet again. I do find cats in there all the time sleeping, but I don't put them there 🙂 Kelly
  9. What a bummer 😞 I've never had problems with them. BUT... if they ever used the "we'll do it this ONE time" line I'd never go back. I hate, hate, hate when people say this! There are such better ways to get this across. Kelly
  10. She has an appointment with a cat-only groomer at the end of the month, unless I can find a vet who will shave her under sedation. This stresses me out so much that I want to cry. I just feel so bad for this kitty. I'm sure the mats feel awful. I'm hoping we see her more once my daughter goes to college. Maybe I can get her to let me groom her more. Thanks for all of the suggestions and commiseration! Kelly
  11. Thank you! I'm picking up the vet records for the groomer tomorrow. I'm going to beg the vet office to do a groom under sedation again. If they do I will take her to the groomer in about 8 weeks in hopes that it will be a less traumatizing experience.
  12. We've tried so many brushes. Not too many combs. I'll take a look at the link you provided. I will try anything! Kelly
  13. We tried a pill that didn't work. I don't think she has any special considerations, other than the fact that she doesn't like the other 2 cats so she tends to stay in my daughters' room. She's often on a bed with one of the girls.
  14. I feel like a horrible cat mom. We a long haired cat that we cannot keep groomed. She hates being brushed, and she cannot keep her long fur groomed. Our vet did a shave under sedation for us, and we were able to keep up with grooming until her fur got long again. She started to get aggressive when being brushed, and her fur is matted and gross again. Unfortunately, our vet doesn't do grooming as a regular service, and I cannot find another vet that will groom with sedation. Our vet did give us some Gabapentin to try to relax her so we could groom her ourselves, but it didn't work. So, I have an appointment with a cat groomer, but I really have no hope it will work 😞 I'm hoping the vet will do it again for us one more time, and then maybe we could get her in with the groomer every 8 weeks. I'm so stressed about this today. She's such a sweet kitty, but hates being groomed. Any suggestions on brushing her fur without the aggression? Kelly
  15. Have they thought about going to online sales? Our studio did this 2 years ago, and I love it! I was never one to stand in line anyway for recital tickets. Kelly
