  1. Quoting myself to say I just use Dove Mousse. It's my favorite and the best that I've found for my curls. Whenever I DO make it to a hairstylist they try all of the many different types of curl creams and they don't compare at all to my Dove mousse.
  2. Good to know that I've saved myself that much by hacking at my curls in the mirror with scissors. Since I never wear it straight it works for me. LOL! If I do get a haircut my curls are really forgiving. I just put mousse in after brushing them straight when wet (they re-form fine) and let them air dry (or diffuse if I feel like it). I must be doing ok because I get compliments on my hair often.
  3. Is the answer key readily available for the self graded option? What about if you as the teacher need help in figuring out where something went wrong, are they pretty good about helping? This is a bit more budget friendly that their $55/month option where they grade so could be doable for us but physics isn't my strongest science.
  4. There have been many incidents of racism over the past 24 hours. It's been horrible, unfortunately. Not sure why you quoted me, though.
  5. Gutted. I really thought they'd do it. Come on, Qatar! I know, I know, this was about correct grammar usage. LOL!
  6. DH and I have used this for years and we love it. I showed it to our 16 year old for one of his economics projects this year (he had to research and set a budget based on where he'd like to be in 8 years) and it was really eye opening to him on what sort of expenses there are in everyday life. Before we got it we were doing paper accounting in a ledger so this was a major step up. LOL!
  7. You're right! I was thinking that in isolation that kind of conversation would be okay but was reading into the OP's presentation of it along with a few other instances of what I'd consider meddling in an adults' affairs. However, I was probably wrong in reading into that. ☺️
  8. I suspect the hiding has less to do with struggle with addiction and more to do with not wanting to hear mom lecture about spending. The OP has had multiple conversations about spending with her daughter that read to me to be over the top (sorry, OP, I don't mean that rudely 😬), especially making her count out her bras and discussing how much she should be spending on a gift. I do understand that these could be casual conversations, but the fact that she's hiding it says that it's gotten uncomfortable and you should probably back off a bit. I agree that it would be good to have her start taking care of her own expenses at home. You'll probably find after that this issue may resolve itself! I know at that age I had a similar issue with my parents but it was shirts, not bras, and my parents kept on making comments about my constant purchases of shirts ("you don't need more tops!") but it was my money to spend and I wanted to so I didn't want to listen and brought my packages in when my parents weren't home. I didn't have an addiction, I just didn't want to answer to my parents and avoided conflict.
  9. All of the orange kitties I've had including my current one have the best personalities. Of course, he's kind of a jerk to my gray tabby but he loves his people!
  10. The anecdotal experience I've been seeing is that they get back earlier than their quotes (though don't count on too much earlier). I'm on a travel related FB page and people have been saying they've gotten theirs back earlier than suggested times. We just renewed the kids' passports as they expire this fall. We don't have a trip scheduled (though were thinking about Paris this year at some point) but always keep our passports up to date as my parents live in England and we need to be able to travel at the drop of a hat if something happens to them. As far as the 6 month timeline goes as far as leaving the country, each country that you visit has different guidelines. I know that some only need the passport valid the length of the trip while others will deny you entry if you have less than 6 months validity. Best to check the gov travel website for guidelines if you know the country that you're planning to enter.
  11. I had Covid and have been vaccinated so I don't wear a mask unless it's required and then I'll don one without a problem. It's rare to see masks where I live and has been for a long while. As of today 34% of the population in my county are vaccinated, that means 66% are not vaxxed but are not masking or being at all careful. 😥
  12. This has been my experience. Most people I come into contact with here are convinced they had it at some point last year. Only a few had actual positive tests (I was one of these). Most use the terms "I'm convinced I had it...." then give dates such as December, January, February, etc... I have an appointment to get vaccinated next week. I'll be 4 months post infection so feel pretty comfortable about getting it, even if it ends up not doing anything for me. My parents live overseas and if I have to be vaccinated in order to travel there then I'm ok with it.
  13. I got a pop socket wallet to go on the back of my phone and now I just have to make sure I have that and my keys and I'm good to go. It's made things much easier for me.
  14. I also have a shoe organizer over my pantry door. Do you have the back of a laundry room door free? Is it close-ish to the kitchen? You could use that. I used to store all of ours in a bin and I got so frustrated with it. Switched to the shoe organizer about 7 years ago and it's been perfect!
  15. Yeah....DS's lasted one season because he decided to try to use it as a skim board instead of a boogie board. LOL! DD is less adventurous and that's probably the only reason why hers has lasted 7 years. HA!
