  1. What do four-year-old and 10-year-old girls love? They're both into horses and something -- expensive -- called Maileg. . .? I have boys who love Lego and nerf guns. I'd love any and all suggestions! TIA!! Alley
  2. I'm going to do this!! Thanks for sharing! Alley
  3. I'm doing exactly what you said: limiting my portion sizes and getting exercise. I lost 50 lbs. 15 years ago. Maintaining the loss has been a trip, but I refuse to regain. So I've learned to maintain. I kept my weight off through arm surgery and later a cast (a driver totaled my car), the loss of my best friend, and now the fun of the coronavirus. In my mind I continually think, I won't let this situation sideline me. The best of luck to you -- I know this a hard time. Alley
  4. My joke is that I'm hard of hearing and it does a marriage good. But, yeah, this is annoying. A.
  5. And, if yes, did you like it? Think it was worth the money? TIA! Alley
  6. Hi Guys! If you have tried MasterClass -- did you like it? Is it worth the money? TIA! Alley
  7. You guys win the prize!!!!! Thank you so much. Now you know how my brain's doing. Alley
  8. We have a term that means helping kids chillax after years of being in traditional school. But I can't remember what we call it. Do you remember? TIA!! Alley
  9. My (at the time) 15 year old son LOVED Jetta Seboly's physics class at Clover Creek Science. This son is very hard on people and he adored Jetta. Then she recommended an online teacher for chemistry and he took and loved that teacher. Miracle in my book. Alley
  10. Based on your post, I was prepared for a cring-y "maybe you went too far" sort of letter, but your letter is cute. Nothing to be concerned about at all. I think injecting some personality into a cover letter is a kindness given how many bland cover letters they have to wade through! Alley
  11. I haven't read all the comments. My sister lives in AZ and has hiked rim-to-rim four times. Her dh goes every year and one time went rim-to-rim and back again. (She called him a weirdo.) Here's the thing: my sister says most people are terribly unprepared b/c they just don't understand what the heat in the Grand Canyon can do to people. (My sister trains for over six months in Tucson heat before she did the rim-to-rim. Plus she had her dh -- an experienced Grand Canyon hiker -- by her side. She actually practices eating and drinking when she's hiking even if she doesn't feel like it. She says that it's important to know what you'll eat when you're stressing your body like that. And she says it's different for everyone. They do it in a day -- sort of -- she says they start at 2 a.m. Have you seen this story? An amazing Boston Marathoner died in the Grand Canyon three months after she did the Boston Marathon. I don't mean to be a downer, but the stories my sister has told me through the years are scary. Alley
  12. If you like Gilmore Girls, you might really like the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (it's from the same creator: Amy Sherman-Palladino). Alley
  13. I think they're all pretty, but the Dillards one is beautiful. Also, have you heard of Rent the Runway? You know how men have been renting tuxedos forever, finally we can rent the good stuff too. Also if you really, really love something you pay a "use" price instead of new price. Alley
  14. You get the coolest mom ever award. I have a booklet on travel savings. PM me if you'd like it. Alley
  15. Hi Everyone, I want to share with you the best motivational podcast for people facing disease challenges. It's called Two Disabled Dudes podcast. (And you don't need to start at the first podcast, they don't build on each other.) I cannot recommend this podcast highly enough. It's a total upper. Their tagline is, "We believe life is how we react." And the show always finishes with a positive, "Live life with urgency." The two guys -- Kyle and Sean -- are absolutely fantastic (and I listen to a lot of podcasts) and talk about their lives. They're so cute and they once on Mother's Day interviewed their moms. 💖 And the moms talked about how they handled their son's diagnosis. Kyle was just 17 when he was finally diagnosed and Sean was 25. They're in their late 30's now with incredible senses of humor and a very cool outlook on life. They have Friedreich's ataxia (or FA), but they interview experts on many various diseases, their show is not limited to FA at all. This is the podcast that just came out yesterday (2-11-20). They put out a new show every Monday (which makes Monday more fun). I hope you'll share this info. with anyone who would love to listen in!! Alley
