  1. I love these masks so much: They are soft, comfortable, and look good. The elastic ties (I have one with a toggle) make them easy on and easy off.
  2. I think it was wrong for the station not to award the first winner the full prize in the first place. ETA: LOL. Totally misunderstood your reason for posting.
  3. DD had some teeth out recently. They were ultra-careful. I wouldn't hesitate to have it done.
  4. Those are STINKING adorable. โค๏ธ
  5. Yes. ๐Ÿ™‚ My family asked what I wanted for Mother's Day, and I said that I didn't want to make food for anyone else for the whole day. LOL. It was great.
  6. @Slache, you've had a lot of challenges in life, but you turned out so very cool. ๐Ÿ˜Ž Well done. And Happy Belated Mother's Day. ๐Ÿ˜‰
  7. Yes, this. I remember my parents calling their moms on Mother's Day, or perhaps dropping by with a plant or something for them, but the day itself was always about the "current generation" of moms with children still at home. Even then it was never a huge deal. Maybe lunch out and cards from the kids. Sometimes mothers were given small gifts or flowers at church. I never thought to wish my grandmothers happy mother's day; they were loved, but not my mother! I'd be happy to do away with the holiday entirely. My mom knows I love her and I know my daughter loves me. This sounds sensitive and selfish, but I hated Mother's Day-focused church services when I was unable to have a baby. I imagine they are painful for a great many other people for various reasons as well.
  8. You and me both! I'd never heard of it before!
  9. Oh, sorry! I just googled "last to leave" challenges and he was all over the first page. I missed that you said "her" and then read "who is the guy" as "who is this guy"? I need to not skim. Looks like she did lots and lots of how to make slime videos, too. ๐Ÿ™‚
  10. He's not a teen, he's 22. He went to a Christian high school. I'd never heard of him before, but read these good things about him on Wiki: "Several videos involve giving away large sums of money, such as giving $100,000 worth of items to homeless shelters in December 2018, donating $32,000 to the Veterans Army Wounded Warrior Program, $70,000 to Saint Jude Children's Research Hospital, and $10,000 to a local animal shelter in Los Angeles. On October 25, 2019 at 19:00 UTC, Donaldson and former NASA engineer and YouTuber Mark Rober organised a collaborative fundraising challenge event on YouTube called #TeamTrees. The goal of this project was to raise $20 million for the Arbor Day Foundation by January 1, 2020 and plant trees "no later than December 2022"....Trees will begin to be planted in January 2020 in national parks of the United States. By the 24 hour mark of the 67-day project, nearly $4 million had been donated. On December 19 of that year, the $20,000,000 goal was surpassed. And as of March 6, 2020, the project reached over 21.7 million dollars." I haven't watched the videos, but I read that he'd given away over a million dollars as of December 2018. Sounds like he's doing good things with the money he is generating through his stunts.
  11. Oh, Ottakee, I am so, so sorry. This too shall pass.

    My pastor handed out small bottles of the ash during a children's sermon. I kept that bottle a long time!
  13. I had zero experience coloring my own hair before all this; I always went to a salon. My colorist switched me to permanent color about a year ago when semi-perm wasn't covering the gray well enough anymore. I have long dark hair, covering my b00ks at this point. ๐Ÿ˜‰ If you just want to do roots, I absolutely love this root cover: Revlon Root Erase. It's super simple and I've been very happy with the results. I've used it twice so far and there is still some in the bottle. It's nice because you only dispense the amount you need and you can use more later. I have also done all over color twice. I use a mousse product because I thought it would be easier for me to do by myself, and indeed, I found it pretty easy to manage: John Frieda Precision Foam Color. The first time I missed some of the whispy hairs around my face and I think one other little bit above my ear. I just colored again yesterday and this time I only missed a teeny-tiny bit at the temples. I'll use the Revlon Root Erase to touch up there tomorrow. Practice makes perfect. I'm happy with the color--not ecstatic, but happy. My daughter says it looks better than when my colorist did it (she is only 11, but brutally honest). I only needed one kit, even though my hair is long and fairly thick. I didn't feel I was running short at all towards the end--there was plenty. I have also been considering color from eSalon, recommended by Hot&Flashy. ๐Ÿ™‚ ETA: My sister has been coloring her own long hair for years and uses one box of L'Oreal Excellence Creme. She said she likes that the creme stays put and isn't drippy or runny.
  14. I would keep it by my computer. WTM Chat Board = overwhelming desire to snack.
