  1. You deserve a break Murphy!
  2. Thank you for giving us this great update!
  3. Good on you for seeing the blessing even though you're in pain and incapacitated. May you recover well from the operation.
  4. Got to call with both of my sisters in the UK today. Also got to chat with Dd who is away at University. Dh and Dd are bonding playing video games - I need to remember that this is a good thing! LOL!
  5. I'm 51 and for the first time in my life sprang for a Diva Cut this week - the hairdresser cut my hair dry and washed and conditioned after. It has made a HUGE difference to how my hair shapes my face. A lot shorter than I"m used to, but really pretty. I have fine hair that tends to frizz. I learned to re-use the water that comes off from rinsing the conditioner and to really work it in strand by strand while the hair is wet through. This helps with clumping. Then to apply curl cream with 'praying hands' to not break the clumps. She started off diffuse drying from the top down with cold air to seal the cuticles and held my hair in a towel in what she called the 'hammock' position. Only when the ends were dry did she turn up the heat and diffuse in the normal way (pushing the curls up with the difusser). She only pushed her fingers in when my hair was completely dry.
  6. And those of us in different time zones!!
  7. Thanks everyone. I think we'll just replace the bathtub in a a regular surround that we have.
  8. We have a plumbing problem which means removing the bath and breaking into the wall. This is South Africa, so the walls are brick not wood as I've seen on US housing shows. This is a great opportunity to remodel and I'm looking at a new bath. I love the look of a standalone bath, but I'm wondering how practical it would be to have one with curved sides in the corner of a bathroom? How would one clean around it? Anyone with experience of this?
  9. The maturity of the children, and more importantly the response time of an adult should there be a crisis is the deciding factor for me. Younger dd was around 12 when we left her alone for that long, but I knew our neighbours would be home and could be over within minutes.
  10. I'm delighted to read this MedicMom! Thanks for the update.
  11. I"ve also been wondering. Thinking of you MedicMom.
  12. I couldn't leave a child who will be traumatized by me not being there either, whatever their age. My sister actually developed a stutter for 3 years after she was left at my aunt's house when she was 3. Assuming that this is what it is about, maybe the conversation with dh has to be around how to rekindle intimacy and desire while you stay at home?
  13. Have you tried historic fiction? Phillipa Gregory is easy to read.
