  1. Stockpiling
    I love stockpiling, I think I'm addicted to it! But I also know that there is a good chance that DH and I will eventually be forced to leave this country, things are just so terrible here with the economy, he mentions it at least once a day now, and as much as I would LOVE to stay and make it...
  2. Pets
    When the warmer weather comes and the weather changes that often means thunder & my poor pooch just shakes & shakes. It starts raining & gets all freaked out waiting for the noise. He's a pound pooch so I have no idea what happened to him before we got him. I feel so bad for him but the vet says...

    Maybe I'm over reacting. After all, she is 21. She will be going to Canada all by herself next week on an adventure that she has been planning for an entire year. She will be going to Toronto to attend the Anime North Convention that will be held there. Then she plans to stay an extra week to...
  4. Success Stories
    I bought a house last summer and I knew in time that I would have to put up a fence. Well my 5yr old son won't play in the back yard because he is afraid that his ball/whatever will end up in the neighbors yard. There is about a 3 1/2foot drop between our back yards. There is a retaining wall...

    What is considered high for blood pressure? When I went to the dr. they said mine was 146/100 and put me on meds. Is this real high?
  6. Secondhand Shopping
    My confession: I hadn't stepped one foot in a thrift store for two years until last week. I live in MI and was in the mood for a garage sale. Well, since we won't be having any of those for a few months, I visited the Salvation Army Store on my lunch hour. And did I find a treasure chest...

    I have been trying to apply for culinary school thru a group called 'MERS/Goodwill' and last week after filling out the third or fourth request for information the lady I'm working with tells me I need to call the school to make sure I can get it. I go home, call and guess what.... all fulltime...
  8. Laundry
    We had to replace our washer, and bought a front loader. I have already seen a drop in my water bill last time ($15). I know I can save more by using cold water. But, have you noticed any difference in your clothes? I am hesitant to use cold water for my white load, 4 kids, many stinky white...
  9. Family
    I want to make friends but my social phobias interfer with that. What doesn't help is sometimes, my mom makes comments that makes me feel like I don't know what I'm doing or stupid. Or she may try to manipulate me, by saying I should do this or that. She thinks, when I'm not working, I spend all...

    I was just taking a lovely walk with DS to the playground. The path that takes you to the playground goes through this very cute little forest/bushy place with a nice stream runnin by it. On our way back there was a snake (prob about 4-5 feet long) laying on the path which, should I say, freaked...

    Don't Be Afraid To Fail You've failed many times, although you may not remember. You fell down the first time you tried to walk. You almost drowned the first time you tried to swim, didn't you? Did you hit the ball the first time you swung a bat? Heavy hitters, the ones who hit the most home...

    It doesn't work with everything but I just got off the phone with the Hearst Corp. Dh's fav magazine Popular Mechanics is due to expire in Feb. and they wanted $18 to renew.(I would usually get them at the library for free but he really enjoys it & then passes it on to his Dad.;) ) Well I took a...
  14. Hobbies
    When I started quilting, I had a deep fear of trying it. I thought I would never get it right. It was the same with crocheting, because I had tried crocheting years ago and hadn't been able to get it. I'm a bit better now than I use to be, but I still shy away from a craft that looks...

    After 9/11 Dave became afraid to fly--before that he was fine with it. Are you afraid to fly now but weren't before 9/11/01?

  17. Family
    My dd is afraid of the vacuum. If she sees me going to the closet that the vacuum is in she will run upstairs. Today I got the vacuum out and she ran upstairs and took a nap. :eek: Does anyone elses preschooler fear anything?
  18. OAMC, Homecanning, Freezing, and Preserving
    Can anyone tell me if it`s really hard... I bought cases of canning jars at my church`s bazar last year... I`ve been thinking about it for years...but I have the impression that it`s so easy to do something wrong and the food in the jars will spoil...:( I just feel insecure about all this...
