  1. The title of this thread sounds like a great book title. Well, we did a cruise before Covid. And we've been to Savannah twice to see family, but stayed in fun hotels. My sister, though, is flying from Tucson to NJ and then leaving out of NJ for a cruise around Iceland. She goes w/ her mother-in-law!!
  2. My kids loved Great Courses. I just wanted to put in a plug for the library. Libraries in the both of the states we've been in had a great selection of Great Courses! Have fun!!
  3. The plant-based protein powders are fantastic. Very tasty. I get the plant-based pp at Costco. Comes in chocolate or vanilla.
  4. We homeschooled in CA and and people were exactly as you say: "but you're in a great school district," and "I heard you're homeschooling, are you crazy?" Then when my kids were six we moved to VA where homeschooling was just business as usual, but homeschooling high school wasn't as common. My two are 18 now. We homeschooled through high school. Best. decision. ever. But I have to disclose, we're in Atlanta now and did a really cool Dual Enrollment deal where they were half homeschooled and have in a community college. I highly recommend home schooling high school and Dual Enrollment. 🙂
  5. I'm sure there's a Facebook group that'll have a lot of ideas. I'm not a big user of FB at all. But when I was diagnosed w/ a rare thing it was comforting to "talk" to others on FB. Also, just sharing. I follow a blogger who has EDS. She's a fashion blogger but very open about having EDS. Hang in there. ♥
  6. Narcissists are weird about gifts. The ones they give. The ones they get. They ones they have to return. The ones that will only clutter their home. It's a narcissist thing.
  7. I do actually think it covers gray well. I must have a lot of gray by now. I haven't stopped long enough to know.
  8. I can't imagine how exciting that is for everyone!! I wouldn't be able to stop smiling!! Have fun!!
  9. Here's what I do: I color my whole head at home and then get highlights at the salon (which I only do twice a year). My hair person taught me how to cover grey without messing up my highlights. 🥰 But here's the problem: the "at-home box" hair color permanent dye was seriously drying my hair. So I went back to using what is called semi-permanent (which means it may only last 10 to 20 shampoos.) It's gentle on hair. Also, because it's semi-permanent -- and doesn't contain anything harsh, you can save what you don't use. The bottle has lasted two months. There's a lot in there. Plus if you don't like the color, you can wash it out. This is what I've been using: Clairol Semi-Permanent in Chai Brown (I'm brunette too). Actually the color I want is called Toasted Almond but they're out right now, so I used the Chai. For some reason they just send a packaged bottle. No directions. No gloves. I googled the directions and just bought a small box of disposable gloves. Good luck!
  10. Just bumping in case anyone else is into it. 🙂

  12. I totally think he would. He's a really nice guy.
  13. I'm a dog fanatic! Your babies are all ADORABLE! ♥♥♥ This is my River. He turned 10 at the end of May. No health problems yet (knock wood).
  14. I agree: opposite sex. I once had two females. I had NO idea that gender mattered. They'd be fine together, but every six months or so they'd have a truly frightening dog fight. It was scary and awful. Thankfully nobody was ever seriously ever hurt. I"m not sure about two males though.
