  1. I'm so sorry for your loss, Rosie. *hug*
  2. Dry and "gritty" eyes can be helped with drops, but if you're already fatigued, reading, or even having an intense conversation is hard work. Has your vision changed? If so I think that's something you're supposed to mention to your caregivers.
  3. Well, one has the initials GIN, and together they are G&T. It was accidental, but take from that what you will. Lessee. My eldest's name is inspired by Raiders of the Lost Ark. DD the Younger's name just seemed right. It means "vigilant" but we didn't take meaning into consideration.
  4. Where did you hear that? I wasn't aware a cause had yet been released. :( ETA: Never mind. I see it all over now.
  5. I don't care enough about whatever this discussion is really about to involve myself. nm
  6. Everybody loves bacon, even if they don't know it yet.
  7. I'm not going to touch the second paragraph... it's low hanging fruit. I was musing in my last post why you seen to be courting increasingly controversial topics as the thread progresses. FWIW I'm well aware of your view on abortion already, and while I disagree, I am not offended. I'm confused though why you seem to be equating others' strongly held opinions brought to to counter your own as depression or infringing on your right to speak here. ETA: I accidentally snipped out a paragraph of Stacey's post. On phone. Hard to fix.
  8. This is at least the second time you've brought up abortion in this thread you've started. Are you bored this afternoon, hoping to get a bit of a rise or of people? Abortion, racism, gay marriage, what else?
  9. I have a fidgety reader (at least until she settles down into it in a comfy chair). Unless her fidgeting is a barrier to her reading, I'd suggest having your own copy of the material. Don't look at hers at all. Maybe sit at opposite ends of the couch or in adjacent chairs. Sorry, I know that's not what you want to hear.
  10. Can we unpack this a bit? Can I avoid businesses whose practices I find abhorrent? Or whose owner's opinions or activities I find objectionable? If that's OK, can I seek to make others aware of these practices or activities? At what point would I be "trying to ruin their lives?" Should I vote for a politician who just has a little racist slip-up? Would you? As far as the basketball guy, he probably has an agreement with the league that has strict stipulations as to conduct. If so, he signed it and should be willing to bear the consequences. But how much respect and consideration should his team give him? SHould they just pretend they know nothing? What would you do if you were in that situation?
  11. This. I recently had some bad news to convey to family and friends, but couldn't make it past the third phone call. It was emotionally wrenching each time as from anew. Like you, I ended up delegating.
  12. Thanks. I'll go back and edit my post.
