  1. My neutered cat gets ds16’s dirty clothes, drags them around the house while meowing constantly, then settles down and has an intimate session with them. He adores my 110-lb Great Pyrenees, and often tries to get romantic with the long fur at the end of her tail. “Big Fluffy,” just grumbles a bit and goes back to sleep.
  2. I asked him to ask her; she said flowers would be great.
  3. What a good-looking couple! I love her dress, and his tie!
  4. No, they aren’t going to the dance together. He has a date to the dance, and she asked him to escort her for walkout knowing he already had a date. They have been good friends for several years, just never romantic.
  5. I just wanted to ask about protocol since they aren’t dating; I thought about it for awhile, read the advice given her, then trotted over to the florist.
  6. I ended up getting a lovely wrist corsage and bouquet; both are a combination of small white mums and white roses. Thanks for everyone’s help!
  7. Yes, typo, he is 15 about to turn 16. Thanks for catching that!
  8. DS13 was asked to escort the Homecoming Court Representative during the Walkout portion of Homecoming Dance. She is a lovely, accomplished, scholar-athlete, but does not have a Homecoming date, so she asked DS15 to escort her during walkout. He is not her date, but should he get the girl flowers or corsage for walkout? I am happy to do so, I just don’t know the correct protocol Uand I don’t know if flowers are normally presented to the court. I know it’s confusing; my guess is “if in doubt, get her flowers, but I sure would appreciate some advice in this matter.
  9. The other people will be parents and some younger kids. There will be barbeque sandwiches and burgers, but I'm not sure how many sides and desserts. Thank you so much for everyone's help! I will take 250,000 buns! Okay, 250.
  10. I'm bringing burger buns to our high school boys' soccer team party, and have no idea how many to buy. Seventy people are expected; 35 of the 70 are ravenous teen boy athletes who can easily put away several burgers/barbecue sandwiches in one meal. How many buns should I bring?
  11. ALO Yoga leggings; High waist, fabric does not stretch, sag, or become less opaque with all-day wear. https://www.amazon.com/Alo-Yoga-Womens-Airbrush-Legging/dp/B00X8Y7XH8/ref=mp_s_a_1_6?crid=157BND58IM8EF&keywords=alo+leggings+for+women&qid=1554723416&s=gateway&sprefix=alo+&sr=8-6
  12. Injury/trauma to the plantar fascia? I have several benign plantar fibromas on the bottom/arch of each foot from a lifetime of dance/exercise. They feel like small, hard lumps, and it hurts like heck to press on them.
  13. Love my Eufy! It's so much quieter than my roomba and has a longer battery life. The eufy is also slimmer than the roomba and doesn't get caught under furniture as much as the roomba. That said, nothing beats the roomba's virtual wall "lighthouses if you don't want the robot wander all over the house; the Eufy has magnetic strips if you need to close off an area, but they aren't as easy to use as the virtual walls. My roomba is the 690, so later models might be quieter. My advice is to watch Amazon's Warehouse deals, you can get an open box or slightly scratched new robot vacuum within your price range: https://www.amazon.com/Robotic-Vacuums-Amazon-Warehouse/s?rh=n%3A3743561%2Cp_6%3AA2L77EE7U53NWQ
  14. ...hey...wait a minute...😃🐝 this is giving me a complex...
  15. Could be age related; my MIL has mild dementia and functions reasonably well in her daily routine; but put her in a stressful or unfamiliar environment and her cognitive function just disappears. If she normally does not forget details or give inaccurate or untrue information, then I would likely attribute her behavior to age, stress, and illness.
  16. My first thought was pertussis: Pertussis in adults can present differently than in children. For one thing, you have likely been vaccinated at some point in your life, so while you can still get pertussis, symptoms may be may be milder. 1. Paroxymal, violent, uncontrolled cough 2. Duration of cough > two months 3. Unproductive cough 4. Vomiting/urge to vomit after coughing spell If your kids have gotten the pertussis vaccine, their vaccinations are likely more recent than yours conferring greater immunity to circulating pathogen.
  17. In my opinion, chiropractic and PT could help reduce pain and increase function. DS15, a year-round soccer player, has disc space issues at L4-L5, sees the chiropractor sometimes twice weekly, and does prescribed PT exercises daily. Both treatments seem to complement and enhance each other. Could/would you consider trying both? Chiropractic care often requires adjustments over a period of time, but physical therapy exercises are done on your own, requiring fewer sessions (in my experience). Another suggestion: Mat Pilates. My husband has bulging lumbar discs and swears that weekly classes eliminate his back pain and muscle spasms. If we miss a few classes, then the pain returns. There are lots of Pilates videos on YouTube, my advice is to do at least 10 minutes of Pilates core work each for about a week and see if they help. Epson salt baths, as hot as you can tolerate, might help relax tight or spasming back muscles. Last suggestion: Massage therapy in conjunction to chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractic helps the spine, massage helps the muscles; in my experience, regular massages extend the duration of time that DH is free of pain after a spine adjustment. I hope you feel better very soon!
  18. Accidental post! Sorry!
  19. 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons lukewarm water 2 tablespoons canola oil 4 tablespoons granulated sugar 1 teaspoon non-iodized salt 3 cups sifted bread flour 1 tablespoon Fleischmann's instant yeast Quick bake setting (58 minutes) Reduce amount of instant yeast if machine cycle is longer than 58 minutes. You may need to adjust/change measurements since your bread machine is a different brand than mine.
  20. I had a long post written, but deleted it because I believe this an instance where you need to see foot/ankle orthopedist if symptoms don't decrease or resolve in the next week or so.
