I did some of the packing of my mom's house

for about four days after the funeral. I lived so far away that I knew I wouldn't be coming back, and I didn't want to leave the burden on my brothers and sister. It was bittersweet.

It was...

You might want to check

is the vent system set up correctly? Is there a bunch of lint in the wall space pipe to the outside?

My dryer used to take forever, and the landlord had someone come with a powerful vacuum and...

You could be my daughter

Right age, right personality, right concerns and worries. If you taught middle school instead of elementary, I'd be wondering if you WERE my daughter.

Anyway, I'd tell her that she has every...

There are repair kits

and you tube videos you could consult. My mother was the queen of inventive home repair methods, but I always feel better doing it the "right" way, if I can figure out what the right way might be. ...

He bought it

A 29 year old car, as is. I can't imagine he's going to take an 81 year old woman to court for what? Fraud?

He doesn't have a leg to stand on, I wouldn't think.

As the mother of five daughters

I think my daughters starting wearing bras about that age. I was in fifth grade and had breast buds that were starting to stick out and asked my Mom for a bra and she laughed at me, and it was sort...

I don't think it's too late

You need to contact the restaurant, either by phone or by email, explain what happened and tell them that it was hard to enjoy the meal due to being wet and cold, and ask that you get a complimentary...

Try pure ammonia.

It's okay on a self-cleaning oven (according to this site) and has worked wonders for me when everything had to be perfect for a military move-out inspection. Usually, I put the racks in a plastic...

You have to buy both books

You can do it, and it works in "whisper sync" mode. It will pick up where you left off for sure. But you have to pay for both the written version and the audible version. Sometimes, it's just an...

That's what we call our break at Christmas time. We won't get another until somewhere near Easter.

Well, its too late now

Pushback or not. Did kids come with Valentines? Or candy? Did you allow them to be passed out or did you send them home unopened?

I guess it all depends on what the culture of your school is...

In my previous school

The autistic classrooms got smart boards before anyone else, because they had special funds besides the building funds. But the aut classrooms found it difficult to get extra teacher editions and...

I think I would do most of them.

Not the India, not China, and not the last Russian one. Like Ima, I'd rather drive than be a passenger, and I would want my husband along for company. I'd love to do the Alaskan one in the summer.

If I'm doing a computer crossword puzzle, I do all of the across ones first and then all the downs, and then go back to fill in areas left blank. Its easier that way because I can just tab to the...

We've watched it

And you're right, it takes a show or two to really catch the spirit of the show. Are there new episodes? It seems like it's been awhile since we watched it.

While I agree with you that schools are not daycares and that the schools decisions should not be BASED on parental needs, etc.

OTOH, I think that there is a responsibility to not cause...
