  1. Wash well, check twice daily, and at first sign of anything , go in . Cat bites either go away or go bad. There doesn't seem to be a middle ground. Though as nurse, I have only treated a few cat scratch fever cases and they do seem to go bad very very quickly, like went to bed with a scratch on the finger and woke up in the middle of the night with severe swelling, heat and dark redness over the entire hand and arm. Cat bites are so strange and unpredictable.
  2. Yep....what we had withheld and what tiny amount extra came our way through the year doesn't match up
  3. I work with peds/ob/ gyns on a surgical floor who openly state they see no reason for themselves to get any boosters but recommend their patients to do so. No one has been ale to give me a reason why it is okay for them to refuse to booster but not okay for their patients. Adults,especially the generation entering adulthood (the 90 kids) when chicken pox and other vaccines entered the market, will need to get boosters or titers checked throughout adulthood. THere is still concern that this group will enter old age and break out in childhood diseases from lack of boosters as immunity wane
  4. BUrned. Absolutely nothing can be claimed anymore such as our business expenses and other things we were able to claim to help with the tax burden. And we lost 2 children completely with the new law and the child tax increase didn't help. Our income is just enough that I will need to cut my hours back this year to fall back under the income line. I work a part time job and a even less part time job (still not full time between the two) and when that second job was added, our tax amount jumped 2500 dollars. So I'm working to pay taxes and health insurance. So I wont' be working as much t
  5. When I have trouble letting go, I imagine standing outside my house watching an absolute disaster strike and losing everything. My kids/pets are with me but we have survived with only what clothes we were wearing. Then I think when I am at the store replacing clothes, furnishings what would be the thing that I absolutely can never ever get again and makes me teary eyed to think I will never see it again? 15 years of out grown kid clothes? No but that special christening gown my sister and I spent hours sewing pearls on, yea. Baby blankets, no but the christening blanket made for the
  6. Luxury yacht crew. Nurse friend of mine spent her 20's traveling the world working on privately rented yachts. Crew was treated well and got to partake in a lot of things once duties were done.
  7. Nope, I would want someone with benefits. I dont want to be the relationship keeper, the taker carer of all things ever again. I just want someone to knock boots with when I call. Marriage is great but I've been at it for 27 yrs and just dont want to start that again.
  8. I'm from the south, directions mean nothing. My compass in the car is typically completely out of sync with road signs. Telling me to go north means..... south for 2 miles, go east for 1, go west, go to light post in Narnia, go to the ice wall and I've yet to actually make a turn or change direction lol! Maybe the place is north on the map but there is no way to go north and get there. Reason why directions are go to the store, turn left, turn to the right, after the church go left, if you see the gas station, turn around....lol!
  9. I would call the State education dept and ask to speak to the legal team. Ask them if the school's interpretation of the policy is correct. Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't. If it isn't,tell them you expect a call to the school to clarify and a proposed plan to keep your son safe. If it is correct, then find out if the school's proposed solution protects the school district from being sued by you if a second attack on your son occurs. And then go from there based on their answers
  10. Birthday money is free money to do whatever with . Otherwise, people would just give gifts instead of money to a child. I have friends who take the birthday money and save it and I just think that is wrong but whatever. The kid doesn't actually get anything for their birthday. I think people in general expect birthday money to be blown on what the kid wants. I would ask him what his shoe size is and the last time his shoe size changed. Spending 200 on a pair of shoes for feet that are growing quickly is kinda of crazy and I would remind him if he is in that stage of development -
  11. If you know you are going to use it, I think it is quite reasonable to cancel the order and order the pro. The motor is big enough to handle the attachments without issues. I use it nearly everyday when I am on a cooking kick. It dices, slices, shreds, grates, makes spirals and peels for me. wonderful if you do a lot with veggies.
  12. I would bet it is the box. I have 3 cats and when we kept a litter box inside, there was cat smell no matter how many times we cleaned that dang box. Once we made them go outside, the cat smell is gone. I did clean the whole room (my cats did not go anywhere else but their box) where the box was with vinegar and water and scrubbed the baseboard and floor by hand with pinesol. If the workers kept the garage door to the house open while the box was there, the smell will travel for sure! It can be quite strong. As long as the cat wasn't peeing everywhere in the house, the odor shoul
  13. My next purchases will be the slow juicer so I can get rid of my stand alone juicer. I keep replacing appliances with KA attachments
  14. I use the cheese grater/shredder, sprilazer, and food processor with cube slicer attachment.
