    Not Telling
  1. Well you know what you can suggest. ;) Over here, I would tell my dd to quit the swimming, and handle dh after the fact... I would like to think if you told your dh she is over-extending herself, and you don't want her sick, he would understand.
  2. How would your dh take you suggesting he back off so your dd is free to see for herself if she is over her head? This isn't just about working hard, your dd gets headaches, and is out in the heat a lot. Part of your parenting at this point is to help dc recognize if they are in over their heads, which is more than just working hard. His expectations are getting in the way of that.
  3. I see some options available, but it is *mostly* her decision. Where you can come in is if you have to pay for medical care if she over extends herself. Also, that you would need to care for her if she gets very ill. That would give you *some* say. First, ask her what she thinks she needs to do. If she feels like she is coping well, than you will probably have to leave it alone. I have found with young adult kids, all statements in the form of a question help. So rather than a panicked "omg, you will get sick, or its too much" a "how are you coping?" or "do you feel its too much?" would be bet
  4. I bought a cheap flip phone at Target. If you are in a larger city, the signal will be fine. If not, it will be spotty. I'm in a smaller town, and find I can work with the spotty signal. I bought the minute doubler (some phones come with it, and it is for the life of the phone). Then I buy the one year plan for about $100, with the doubler, it gives you 800-1000 minutes for the year (it will say 400 minutes for the year). That is more than enough for me, but I have a landline. Net 10 uses the same signals as Tracfone, they have more options for minutes, but the phones are not interchangable fr
  5. How long? Short term rentals are tight here too. We lived in apartments and saw many solutions that you could use... pay month to month, and get an extra room to store your extra stuff. I even saw entire families squish into a one bedroom, storing in the bedroom, and all sleeping in the living quarters. Think of it as a vacation where you take everything, and that its temporary. If you do this, do easy in, easy out, as in a ground floor unit.
  6. My frig broke a year ago, I got a side by side (Whirlpool) at Lowe's and it was a good experience. Actually, I ordered it first from Home Depot, waited a week (in 90 deg. temps using coolers...) only to find out on delivery day that the order didn't go through (placed at store). Lowe's got one in in 24 hours. There was a small scratch, they gave me 10% off and scratch repair paint (wrong color, but correct Whirlpool paint for $5 from Amazon worked) and the option to still return it if I chose to. Their service plans are very reasonable as well. Be careful with Samsung, I live in a small to
  7. Interesting article: http://fiddlrts.blogspot.com/2015/05/the-duggars-how-fundamentalisms.html
  8. I only eat jello when I'm sick... I'm sure hospitals alone will be enough to keep it around.
  9. re-posting for those only looking at the end of the thread, timeline and "treatment details": http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/acts-of-faith/wp/2015/05/23/a-timeline-of-the-molestation-allegations-against-josh-duggar/?tid=sm_fb "The Democrat-Gazette has this to say about “the old Veteran’s Hospital in Little Rock,†the location given by Jim Bob Duggar as the site of the counseling: Pulaski County assessor’s records show the nearly 500,000-square-foot former VA hospital building was purchased by Hobby Lobby in 1998.

  10. more..... http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/acts-of-faith/wp/2015/05/23/a-timeline-of-the-molestation-allegations-against-josh-duggar/?tid=sm_fb quoting from above article: " The Democrat-Gazette has this to say about “the old Veteran’s Hospital in Little Rock,†the location given by Jim Bob Duggar as the site of the counseling: Pulaski County assessor’s records show the nearly 500,000-square-foot former VA hospital building was purchased by Hobby Lobby in 1998.

  11. Me too! And the princess was born on my birthday and really made my day!! I know Diana is smiling.
  12. The year we knew a lot, I bought chocolates for each of them (and brought a cooler so they didn't melt during the ceremony).
  13. I think the book you have is a good start. stopthethyroidmadness.com is a good site as well. Be ready for the doctor to either say no to the labs, or if you get them, not able to read them right..... But if you are lucky enough to get at least some, it will be a start. Make sure you get a copy. A health food store near me offers labs from time to time for a very reasonable cost, if you can get TSH, FREE T3 and FREE T4 (not total or uptake) that would be a nice start as well. Even if TSH is in range, if it is higher in range (above 1.0 or 2.0) that can be a sign of being hypo. More forward t
  14. Back when I ate gluten and dairy, the huge amount of annatto in Annie's Mac and Cheese made me wheeze. Evidently one can't handle large amounts of that either. I hope Kraft cuts back the color, it doesn't have to be vibrant yellow/orange!
