I am happy for you!

To have gotten both!
I think being really patient, keeping her in the room as long as it takes to get her really comfy with you is the best plan for the long haul.
Since she lets you pet her when...

We had outdoor cats as kids.

They did not have long lives. As an adult, I kept them indoors.
My 1st kitten's (indoor) mom had been run over. She looked like a little rat, but we fed her Enfamil with an eye dropper. She had to...

Congrats on being debt free! YAY!!!

I know the joys of that feeling too! ( Especially after being heavily in debt at 1 time.)
I did mine the Dave Ramsey way a long time ago and do not care 1 bit about FICO scores anymore.
If you can...

We went to Iowa yearly as kids

My memory of these sandwiches back then was they were way smaller, but delicious. After that, I never saw them again.
I don't think any food in moderation is going to hurt you. If you have a...

I do not want to commit to a schedule.

Maybe 5 yrs from now, I'll feel differently. :)
I doubt it though!

I have done the above and a few more.

If I can't do auto pay, I send a check for the year to people like the plow guy. I always have a balance and in the summers pay him for the next yr.
I went through my photos a couple of summers...

I was poor in my very early years.

I had never learned to save $ and at 1 point, credit was thrown at us. I knew nothing about debt. I learned through the school of hard knocks and Dave Ramsey!
Later in life, I met an old friend in...

I just retired last yr.

So most of my friends are still working. When they call me with woes, sometimes it brings me back to a place I am so done with!
I do feel sorry for them and it can bring back memories I don't want....

I wish they had!

Did your district offer an early retirement incentive the year you retired? no

If not would you have retired earlier than planned with the incentive? YES

Has your district ever offered early...

I used to be the official jar opener :)

Then my wrists weakened due to CT.
If I have trouble now, I'll take a knife and gently go around the jar smacking the edges of it. It pops kind of.....I am going to try the warm water idea above...

I could write pages on this! :)

1. Put God 1st in your life.
2. Live your life with your family. ( Put them before school.)
3. Rest, eat as best as you can, laugh, exercise, and make time for yourself.
4. Get a back up degree...

A reminder if you feel tingling....

and suspect Shingles, go to a dr asap.
Even if you have to go to a drop in clinic. I looked back on the meds I took. They are most effective if taken within 72 hours.
I remember the dr telling me...

Yes, I'd say it was given in love.

Please don't be offended by it. <!--valentine-->She is probably just thinking it could help you.

I had the same thought as Tori

You probably should go to classes before trying a video on your own.
Remember if it hurts, don't push it.
I have known a few people who have injured themselves ( not long term) from "pushing it."

We learn something new each day!

I'd have bet someone 100 bucks that it was supposed to be desserts.
Glad we aren't gambling on here! :)

They cheated.

For the assignments that they cheated on already, I'd give them big fat zeroes.
You want to put the fear in them and other students who are cheating.
Then I'd tell them that you are going to be on...

Thanks for the laugh! :)

I used to go to Yoga classes and often amazed people with my freakish agility.
I have had it all of my life.
However, my balance has never been real good.
It has gotten worse with age.

Our public schools were slowly

being replaced by Charter schools before Covid.

Best wishes!

I used to love snow days in Ohio. Once I moved to Alaska, they did not have them here. No matter how much snow may fall or ice develops, you have to get there.
