  1. I use peppermint oil on my temples and the back of my neck when I have a headache. (Am I not supposed to put that on my skin directly? Cuz I do . . . )
  2. I’d love more info too. DS17 is considering this route. I asked the person who runs the PTA program at our local community college about job placement and she said many graduates work as independent contractors. So the hourly rate looks good, but there are no benefits.
  3. My teens both work 10-20 hours/week at the local ice cream shop. Best. Job. Ever.
  4. I'm refreshing my business website with a new WordPress theme and, while it's largely been a good process, one issue has me stumped. Google didn't help much and the WordPress support forums are . . . scary. (This is all new to me, so I'm way out of my league there.) I'm hoping someone here can hear me out, maybe look at a screenshot or two, and figure out my issue? One big change I'm making to the home page doesn't show up when I preview the page (though other parts have changed with no problem). I've cleared the cache. Could be I'm working in a different file or something? (I mentioned I'm out of my league, right?)
  5. Add “favorite airplane snacks” now.
  6. With screens? None. With a book? A sketch pad? Legos? Their imaginations? Unlimited.
  7. How experienced of a driver is the person who will be driving? What do you know about the group of friends? If the driver has been driving regularly for a while (I don’t know...9-12 months?), and I knew the group to be a generally responsible crew, I’d be okay with it.
  8. I, too, have had the "you better fill these cavities right away" lecture followed by a second opinion that revealed no cavities. It's infuriating. It's possible that the newfangled deep cleaning process really IS a bit better. Who knows? But does that mean it's necessary? Or worth the extravagant cost to the average person who seems to have been doing fine with the regular cleaning? Fear- and shame-based sales tactics are the absolute worst. And, sadly, they're used in nearly every industry.
  9. I’ve googled but I think I’ll get better info from the LDS mamas here. What’s the general stance on LDS teens dating non-LDS? If your teen wanted to date someone outside of your faith, how would you respond? And what if the relationship got serious? Is marriage allowed in the church? Thanks, Hive.
  10. Kelly left for Paris after the triangle with Brandon and Dylan couldn’t be resolved. “I choose me.” Then she met an artist named....someone help me out here. He got her hooked on drugs. Then she was with nice-guy Matt for a while. There may have been another beau or two in there. (I was on my couch recovering from a c-section when some cable channel played reruns 24/7.) I think in the 90210 reboot she had a child from Dylan? First Neil Winters from the Young and the Restless and now Dylan McKay. Rough time for fangirls of the 90s
  11. I love this idea. The first year after my dad died a lovely friend sent a brief note on both Father’s Day and Christmas saying something about how the “firsts” are the hardest. I so appreciated that she remembered my loss and acknowledged I’d likely be grieving on those days. So maybe just a line or two saying something like that? As someone else already mentioned, if you have a memory of this person, include that.

    I like the idea of asking questions rather than offering advice. Anecdotally, at 19 my sister broke up with a boyfriend of 3 years and then quickly started up with a guy she had been friendly with on her dorm floor. They’re in Jamaica right now celebrating their 20th anniversary. Sometimes it works out. What on on earth is this HUGE face doing on my post? I’m so sorry, everyone
  13. Would do again: 100% Egyptian cotton sheets. WHY DIDN’T I DO THIS SOONER? What a difference. Regret: Lash boost by Rodan & Fields. Sure, it lengthens lashes but it doesn’t create new lashes, which is apparently the magic I need.
  14. Adding to this... Doesn’t that psych professor know many people are dealing with porn addictions and are trying very hard to AVOID porn?
