  1. The Pixel 4A is finally out for $350. I had the 3A and adored it and when dh needed a new phone I gave it to him and now have the Pixel 4 which I splurged on.
  2. This stuff can stop it cold and will keep UTI's from reoccurring as well. Youngest's gyn recommended it. Hope you feel better soon. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MR7Y7AS/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  3. I've made the broth many times with a frozen chicken.
  4. I have never heard that expression before to mean anything other than a literal pot plant. I'm in the Northeast. Not regional here to my knowledge!
  5. For the first time in my life I have a large capacity washer and dryer and I wash sheets every week, comforters every month.
  6. A card would absolutely be appropriate. I am sorry to hear about your friend.
  7. Dearest imaginary friends, Hope you are all staying safe and well. I haven't been here in a long time and missed you. Thankfully some of you are also Facebook friends and I keep up with you that way. We are doing pretty well. Youngest is in her 2nd year of college. was furloughed and then let go from her IT job and is currently working as a pharmacy tech. Oldest has been furloughed from her job at a special needs boarding school. They speak of our homeschooling years very fondly which warms my heart. It was almost 16 years of homeschooling between the two of them after all. I have been working from home since 3/23 and am feeling pretty isolated but extremely grateful to be working still. DH has been working steadily as a handyman following strict Covid precautions. MIL and FIL moved in in April with hospice care until he died in June. So, that was awful and yet, beautiful too. We had a lovely, blessed, day scattering his ashes in the ocean. So incredibly odd to not have any kind of service or funeral due to Covid. Got a new dog last year named Mouse who, as it turns out, has generalized anxiety disorder but meds and a pheromone collar have helped immensely. He is the sweetest. Walking him is one of my only escapes from the house these days. I am blessed he has a best friend who's owner also works from home so we walk together a lot. Strange times for certain.
  8. I'd like an invite please. 23 year old and her dh live with us and youngest is 19 working and in college.
  9. Good for him, that's awesome!
  10. I've used eyebuydirect for years. Never disappointed.
  11. Totally with you. I adore technology and appreciate all of it!
  12. I have lost 38 lbs by using the Lose it app to track calories, switching to a protein and greens shake for breakfast and only indulging in alcohol on the weekends. Also do about 10,000 steps a day, half of which are done on my trampoline. I eat low carb, NOT keto, that made me sick, and substituted good choices for bad ones, ie Wink frozen dairy treat instead of Ben and Jerry's. You can totally do this! I also tried Meratrim which I think really boosted the belly fat loss.
  13. I went hyperthyroid when I hit menopause. Never had I been anything but hypo, pretty crazy. I started taking Myo- inositol powder with selenium capsules along with my thyroid meds and now, 6 months later, my numbers have never been better. There is a lot of good research on it for Hashimotos but I started with this article. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5331475/ I felt so much worse hyper than I ever did hypo. Never took kelp so I don't know how that all works. I hope you get it straightened out soon!
  14. Loved it. We also love Supernatural, Firefly, Criminal Minds, Deadliest Catch, Burn Notice, Leverage, Chuck, Hawaii Five O (the new one), The Good Doctor, NIght Shift, ER and MASH
  15. After the 3rd time I ended up in the ER all day with the kids and no money to use the phone. 2001 I think?
  16. Google Pixel 3a XL has the original Pixel camera and it is amazing, about 1/2 the price of Samsung s10. Two cons, no expandable storage or replaceable battery but for the camera, I can live with it.
  17. For me, this. I've watched loved ones fight incurable cancers. They did it for their family, not themselves and rather than spending the time they had living, they spent it in hospitals undergoing grueling treatment. My sister in law said at the end that she wished she's never gotten on the "hamster wheel of cancer treatment". It is what I will chose should it happen to me and my family knows it.
  18. Forgot to add in my pm to you, dd was on Lamictal for the Bart rage as well
  19. To relieve the pain while whatever it is heals, I can't recommend this stuff highly enough. It is the only topical that has ever touched my chronic neck and shoulder pain. https://battlebalmcbd.com/products/battle-balm®-extra-strength-cbd
