  1. One of my friends from high school just posted that she's still wearing her high school Docs! We graduated more than 20 years ago. They've been resoled, but they're still kicking.
  2. New Orleans style BBQ shrimp. Lots of recipes online. Low carb if you can pass up the bread to soak up the sauce. I like it over roasted cauliflower.
  3. An independent agent can run you quotes from all different companies and find you the best deal. The insurance company pays their commission if you buy. It doesn't cost you any extra.
  4. I wouldn't call the doctor unless you suspect strep or she has some kind of compromised immune system. It's probably a cold/virus.
  5. Christian Scientists are one such group. I would assume there are others because there are bunches of religious variants. A friend in elementary had a brother with epilepsy and they blamed it on his sin. CPS was involved by the time I lost touch with her. :(
  6. NOT an actual legal opinion, just internet ramblings: If MIL has chosen this religion and walked the path for her adult life, I personally wouldn't worry about being accused of neglect. If she requests medical attention and you refuse to provide it, that's different. Or if this were SIL's new thing that she's imposing on her dependent mother with your assistance, that would be different too.
  7. Thankfully I don't have to depend on growing my own food because I kill all plants, but I would love to eat that way. I cook from scratch for the most part, but I can't eat everything I cook.
  8. You could say, well, I can only tell you what I think based on my beliefs, but they do not comport with yours. Would you be interested in hearing my thoughts? If she says no, then keep your mouth closed and let her grieve her mortality in her own way.
  9. Today? Fruit, cheese, maybe a mini bagel. I don't get fancy with lunch!
  10. My temperature goes up to right around 100 when I ovulate, and that's without moving around at all. Could be cyclical or she's fighting a little cold.
  11. There are several inclines. The Science center. The Heinz museum. Catch a Pirates game. Wander through the Strip District (during the day). Cathedral of Learning at U Pitt. Lots of great food to try. We really enjoyed Pittsburgh!
  12. Nothing you can do about it now! But at least you'll know it's nothing contagious.
  13. Kay, if we don't answer, we either are not home or do not want visitors. Do not come to another door. If you come to another door, the answer will be no for the rest of the day. Try again tomorrow, hon.
  14. In addition to the people paying income taxes (or who have paid or will pay), there are programs under the Medicaid umbrella such as the Children's Healthcare Insurance Program where parents who are above the poverty line for regular Medicaid but under another income level (depends on state) can pay a reduced fee to insure their children. In states that expanded Medicaid under the ACA, there are people who pay a reduced fee for state-sponsored insurance.
  15. The pattern of abusive relationships is troubling. Moonhawk, I hope you are seeing someone for yourself. Do it for your kids. :grouphug:
  16. It was really, really difficult for me to watch my grandmother pass in hospice care when I was in my late 20s. At 11, it would have wrecked me. I didn't derive any comfort from her funeral. I hope your grandmother has a peaceful passing. :grouphug:
  17. Surgeons have god complexes. Most of them have never undergone surgery themselves and aren't the caretakers of loved ones who have. Once they lay hands on you, you should immediately be healed! ;)
  18. Noooooo. If she recognized her daughter, that would be bad news. She would have tons of ammunition. There's nothing Moonhawk can say or do to convince them--did you read the abusive lengths they've gone to already?
  19. I'm so sorry for your loss. He sounds like he was an amazing kitty boy. :grouphug:
  20. People on Craigslist and in parking lots can be crazy! I stopped selling on it because of nuts. I even was really careful to immediately edit the listing when the item was spoken for. A man got shot in a nearby parking lot over a squabble about spaces. I just park far out and park carefully to try and avoid crazy people. A quick reverse and adjustment is worth not getting shot! I hope this week is better for you. :grouphug:
  21. People who threaten to take away your children are NOT good people. Parents who act ridiculous to intimidate and harass their grown daughter are NOT good people. You need to reframe how you think of them. This is not a healthy relationship at all. They are beyond overstepping boundaries.
