I think black pants and a dressy top is fine. That's what I wore to a wedding last summer. If I absolutely had to attend, I'd probably skip the church. It will cut your covid risk in half and the...

Please don't feel like a traitor! You are actually doing them a favor by lowering the number of kids in the classroom. Also, I'm guessing your kids will be able to return to their regular school...

You can do it!

Yes! My A1c was 6.3 last summer. Giant wake-up call for me! I started dieting & walking/exercise bike every day, lost 20 pounds by December, and my A1c went down to 5.5. Since then I've added...

Same thing happened in my family

I had a horrendous case of chicken pox at age 6. My 5 yr old brother had 2 "bug bites" which got diagnosed only because of me. I would get the vaccine. You just never know.
