Common House Sparrow

I found a little nest in one of houseplants. I was excited, then I saw the eggs.

It's the Common House Sparrow. It's considered invasive, and I'm supposed to destroy the nest, eggs, and the...

Re: Album: Weight of these Wings, Miranda Lambert

Music is very healing, and it speaks to the soul. The controversies in the singer's real life often add to the authenticity of the music.

I'm glad you found this consolation.

Re: I am insane

So far the fallout has been nil, because I'm on to her games.

DM told me yesterday that, while she really appreciated my inviting everyone to dinner, she didn't want me doing anything more...

Re: I am insane

The real rope is with DM. I dropped it. The dinner was supposed to be yesterday. My nuclear family enjoyed a nice day together. DM stayed home.

I am insane

According to Dr. Phil, the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting a different result.

And that's what I do.

DM is turning 74 this week. I thought it...

Re: Work relationships

We had a bittersweet conversation this week.

She said that I had a really great year and she knows I don't need her. She knows the work will continue and it's mine, not hers, now. She was sad,...

Re: "Hosting" for someone else and special requests

So, I opted for the individual meals at the dinner, with GF appetizers and individual desserts at the buffet to limit the possibility of cross contamination. The GF desserts were clearly marked GF,...

Re: "Hosting" for someone else and special requests

I decided to add some apps and desserts that are GF, and label them as such. Other entrees will also be labeled so they won't stand out, but hopefully make others aware to avoid cross contamination....

"Hosting" for someone else and special requests

Part of my position involves "hosting" dinner to thank employees and volunteers on behalf of the big boss. I send the invitations, manage the caterers/food orders, set up, tear down, etc.

Re: Think my friend now hates me

I think the right thing to do is to respect her request. It doesn't sound like you did anything to provoke that kind of response.

Change your vacation plans. Go somewhere else and make new...

Re: My mom vent

Yep. That's why my mom is in her own apartment and still working and being self-supporting.

One thing I am trying to understand is every age comes with its own emotional challenges. I'm...

Re: What is a "false sense of well being"???

I'm doing okay, snafu. My stomach got used to the meds. I am still waiting for that "false sense of well being," but no stomach upset will do! :)

Re: Unplanned

I went to see it tonight. I thought it was very well done.

I do not agree that it should have an R rating, though. There was a depiction of medical procedures, but I see more on My 600lb Life. ...

Unplanned

This is NOT a pro-con thread over the topic of the movie.

I'm curious what people think of the way the movie itself is being treated.

There are arguments that it should not have an R rating;...

Re: My kids, My mother and Step Dad... ugh

First, let me say thank you for being a good husband and father! It's refreshing to see a husband support his wife; many times the "son" wins out.

Re: Caring for Aging Parents
