  1. when you say quiz you mean game shows like Jeopardy or something? I have not watched the other 2 you mentioned...I will check them out.
  2. I have always been the kind of person who likes everything to have a 'home" and stay there....but since having a family, my desires with that have gone by the wayside. But, now I have one in college, one more leaving for college in the fall and one will be a junior in high I want to not only get my home back in "organizational order", but I would LOVE to learn how to be a "professional organizer" for others without having to go back to school. I don't want a huge business....just one that might give us some spending money once my husband retires in a 5 years or so. I know there are tons of books on the subject, but I don't know which ones might be worth the money. Or are their on-line videos to watch or other options? I used to LOVE watching that show on TLC called Clean Sweep. I wish I could find those someplace. You tube has snippets of the show...but not full episodes. If anybody has done this and has some advice for me, I would love to hear about it. Thanks.
  3. have watched everything that remotely interests you....and in some cases more than once. It's not like I spend 7 hours a day watching TV or anything...but I do like to watch a couple hours most nights as wind down....and I run out of options. We have Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime. I like doctor shows (like Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice), I like shows like Gilmore Girls, Parenthood, Brothers and Sisters...that sort of thing. Shows that I like that are currently running are This is Us, The Good Doctor, New Amsterdam and Chicago Med. I am not into cop shows or sci fi at all. I am open to suggestions. thanks.
  4. it that is all I need? AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! thanks.
  5. I hear your pain....and I have searched for a solution I am watching this thread of some very wise person who has the perfect solution to this.
  6. I have a bunch of photos I want to scan and put into digital photo books. I have a 3 in 1 printer/scanner but whenever I scan a picture, it scans it as a small part of a piece paper like I am not sure that will work when I want to try to make photo books. I have looked at photo scanners...and I am sure this is a case of "you get what you pay for"....and I can't afford an expensive scanner. Does anybody here have a decent one that you could link me to? or experience using a regular 3 in 1 printer/scanner that could help me navigate this project? Thank you very much!
  7. I would love to see a picture of your window...if you don't mind sharing it. Thanks.
  8. thank you...that is what I figured....I just get paranoid sometimes...
  9. I put a piece of frozen roast beef (covered in BBQ sauce) in my crockpot an hour ago and I thought I put the crockpot on high...but in reality it was on "warm"...that isn't a big deal, right? I put it on high right now...and it will cook all day...intended for supper tonight. thanks.
  10. We have a big window seat in our home, with 4 big windows. We are replacing the current windows (today) with new ones. The current ones have blinds inside the window panes, so I never worried about window treatments either than a valance for a little color. But we are now going to need something (the new ones will not have blinds inside) because certain times of the year the sun beams in pretty strongly. We rarely completely closed the blinds, but sometime we slightly close them for privacy (we live in a small town with neighbors) or to keep the sun from blinding someone. So, I am toying with Roman Shades. What do you all have for window treatments for such windows? Any suggestions. Also the window seat has become just one more horizontal space that collects stuff. I want that to change....after removing all of the "stuff" so the windows can be replaced, I LOVE how it feels not so cluttered. But, I am not sure what to put on the seat part. I looked on pintrest and all of the pictures look like they came from a model home...not a real people's home...So I want to know what real people do with their window seats. All I see is a putting pillows on the window seat...which is a nice idea...but I want to have several to choose from...any other ideas? (pictures would be awesome if you have them to share) One issue we have is that under the seat part there is actually nothing inside is actually just the when I removed the lame cushion I made years ago, there was actually some dampness (from condensation) and even a little bit of mold on the cushion cover. Not bad...but enough to notice. Under the cushion is an UGLY old fashioned tile that is stained and just icky. So I really want to cover it. Would making a cover that is plastic underneath and cloth on top be the answer? Or is there a better idea? I am open to any and all decorating ideas....send them all my way! thanks.
  11. wow....let me first again say, I am so sorry if I offended or hurt anybody here. That was NOT my intent at all. I also wasn't trying to poke fun or fingers at anybody. Please forgive me if I offended you. Again, I was simply clothes shopping and hated how I looked and how hard it was to find clothes that I liked on me. I am not trying to fit any sort of stereotype...I am just wanting to make improvements in my life that would hopefully be reflected in how my body looks. I appreciate the advice given and I look forward to trying the ideas out. Thanks...and again I am so sorry for those who have loved ones who struggle with food issues and weight. I know that is a real thing too. But please just know if I had even thought this would bring up some sadness and frustration in others, I would have have thought twice about posting.
  12. Well, I am not trying to ruffle feathers... This is an real issue for me. My weight emphasizes my middle that much more. If my real question makes someone unhappy, I am truly sorry and I will delete my post.
  13. the reason this came about is that I was trying on dresses and many of them made me look like I was pregnant...and if I could get rid of that...I would have so many more clothing options. I have lots of friends my age that do not have this issue...but I suppose they have prevented....instead of try to fix after the fact. or do I just need to learn how to dress differently? If that is the case...then I need lessons in that? sigh!
  14. OK...I am 53 and I have decided that it is long past time I face the facts and try to deal with my ever growing waistline (and I am not pregnant.. 😊 ) I am not a big gal...petite and about 115 pounds. So, I really don't feel like I need to loose weight really...just a couple inches around my middle. I am going to be honest with you all...I do not exercise really (on nice days I will walk about 1.5 miles)...but I haven't done that much since it's cold here. I do have a basement where I sometime walk in circles there (especially if I am on the phone...I like to walk and talk)....I have fitness tracker and my steps can literally be anywhere from 5000 a day to 15000 a day depending on the day. Lately it's way more towards the 5000 step than the 15000....but maybe when it gets nicer will get bigger. I also do not eat the I know that needs to change...I learned to cook (from my mom) with lots of cream sauces, pasta, white bread, etc. SO.....where do I start?? I know fewer calories...more activity...but then I also know there is something to eating more protein...but protein foods have high calorie counts, right? What might be some tips or tricks that might help me. We live in a rural area, so I do not have access to a gym or anything like that. I just need some basic guidelines to start a healthier way of life. thanks.
  15. Just out of curiosity she called a pharmacist...according to him, he shouldn't have to wean himself off that particular medicine, however, if the doctor prescribed it for 3 months he needs to take it for 3 months because his stomach needs to heal and taking the medicine is allowing that to happen. So, when he stopped (and I just found out he tried one other time with the same results) his stomach got upset because it still needs to heal. So, because it happened one other vote is not flu...but also not rebound...but rather what the pharmacist said...that make total sense to me.
