    Just heard that oil hit the $120 mark this morning because of the unrest in Libya and the entire Middle East and North Africa.

    Or a smaller house or apartment. The thread on preparing to move from a condo to a single family home got me thinking - what about preparing to move out of a large family home into a smaller place? Who here has downsized, and what was the experience like? Was it harder or easier than you...
  7. Mother's day
    Ok, if you spend Mother's day with both your mother and your S.O.'s/spouse's mother, how do you divide up the day? I'm running into issues this year now that my mother has moved back to MA. I honestly can't remember the last Mother's day we spent together (to my credit, it *has* been at least...

    In reading another thread asking about how we find contentment when we are feeling discontent I realized that a big thing for me is that I don't. I don't try to be happy with what I have if I'm not. For each of us this could mean differnet things. When I become unhappy enough, discontented...

    I previously asked what favorite food of yours your family disliked. So lets change this around and I'll ask "what food do YOU really dislike? Mine is carrot, I'd eat a piece of dog food before I would touch a carrot! So what is yours?

    The other evening I watched part of a programme that was on a channel that I hardly ever watch (BBC 3 or 4). I came across it while channel hopping and came in mid-way. I don't even remember the name of the show but it fascinated me and I hope that it will be repeated at some point. There was a...

    I didn't want to take over anyone Else's post so here goes my depression story. For about two weeks now I have been feeling a dark cloud over head. After years of squeezing every last penny from the budget I finally got to the pay off. All our debt is paid off and we are in the clear. I have...

    One of my news headlines (on computer) this A.M. was that WHO has now called this a pandemic. :eek: Anyone have more info to add? Can any nurse out there tell me a little more about what this might mean?

    Who is the cheapest person or persons you know? In my case I have to say my parents in law. Let me just say beforehand that these are wealthy people. One of the many, many, many examples - they buy a frozen cream cake for visitors/birthday etc. It sit out on the table for most of the day after...

    I thought this multi-step approach might need its own thread, at least it will help me work through this process while I'm still reading the book and posting about other nuggets in the other thread. It is important to know before reading this thread that the nature of the thread will mean we...

    When on the way to the hospital with my mother in law yesterday, we were talking about my family who is staying with me. She said to all my complaints about them - don't forget that you invited them so you have to do everything for them so that they have a good time. I replied that I do agree...

    I never watched anything as a child or young adult that scared me but after I got married I did like to try to watch horror movies. I have given it up since the only two that I watched scared the .... out of me. The two are 'It' (from a book of Stephen King) and 'Rose Red'. To this day (and I...
  19. Christmas
    I am so glad that I read the other (original) post. Now I have the same dilemma but only for older kids. I find it harder and harder each year to find gifts for my kids (4 boys and 1 girl ranging in ages from 18 (girl) to 27). The 4 boys also have long time girlfriends so I buy things for them...
