I feel you, Jem! I am having a hard time finding nice clothes. Everything is made so cheaply!

Re: what shoes to get

Solid flats would be beautiful! A sandal, too.

But, how does the math work for the new shoes? Two pairs out when 1 comes in? I don't like that rule! :D

That last line may be the truest one! She won't know until she tries it, I think. :)

But the rest is also true. Some grandmothers do act like grandchildren are a "do-over" without taking...

The other end of the mommy wars!

I wasn't sure where I wanted to put this, but I think it belongs here!

Asking for raises

Actually, this is starting salary.

I have recently switched to a full time job. I was offered a starting salary, which I rejected. I was then offered more, and although it's not what I wanted,...

Re: Yeast challange

Hungarian coffee cake sounds great!

I don't know how I missed this thread before. I used to keep yeast in the freezer to extend its shelf life. I don't bake enough anymore to worry about it.

It takes time, and a few false starts.

Have you reached out to anyone? The Book Club movie is funny!

Re: menu planning

It's a great system.

My system is: It's 4:30 and I have to make dinner. What do I have? That's what I'll cook.

Oh, we don't have anything? Take out or go to dinner?

:D

Welcome back, Tonnie!

I'm sorry about your poor cats, but I'm so happy to hear you are flexing your work schedule. And homeschooling on top of that? That's a lot!

Re: Parents sue to evict 30 yr old son

I don't disagree with you at all. IMO, he's clearly got some challenges. Is he dangerous? Not yet. And because of that, the parents can't do anything wrt his mental health. They don't have any...

Re: Parents sue to evict 30 yr old son

I heard about it. I was thinking that this is clearly a parent problem. They could easily toss his things to the curb and change the locks. They didn't need a court. They needed to parent.
