  2. Support
    I am getting very worried about hubby and the stress at his job. He really enjoyed his job for years~ up until a few months ago. His coworker has been out on comp for 3+ months. There is no chance at all he could come back until mid Jan if even then. Hubby delivers freight for one of the big...

    I recently opened a store-bought jar of pickles. As soon as I broke the seal on the jar, a very thick white foam started to come out at a rapid rate. To my surprise, it seemed to gain momentum rather than the opposite. I moved it to the sink as quickly as I could and closed the jar tightly...
  4. Preparedness and Survival
    I'm really glad that I've been prepping. The world economic situation is making me very anxious. Today, from what I've read, it sounds as the the market is one step closer to crashing. The debt deal that was agreed upon was a drop in the bucket. American IOUs are getting called in. The...

    Isn't there a saying that goes something like 95% of what you worry about never comes to pass? I've found that to be very true. The last two and a half years, I was under some serious stress about a situation that I couldn't control, but I put so much energy into it anyway. The lack of sleep...

Yesterday I get a phone call from him around 10pm (he is suppose to be @ work by 10) and he sounds scared; and in a panic. He says: Babe---I don't know...

    I am beyond worried. Tonight -- in the wee hours -- my 20-yr old son leaves on a 3 week tour with his heavy metal band. They'll be driving, hauling a trailer with lots of heavy, expensive musical equipment, all over the West (CO, NV, OR, WA, SD). They'll do 1100 miles in 18 hours (the...

    We have a 12 yr. old standard poodle... and she seems to be in pain. I think it is her neck. She was hit by a car when she was 2 yrs old and being cared for by my Mil when we were away. She wasn't seriously hurt. Just bruised and she had hurt her neck. Twice since she had hurt it rough housing...

I think to myself, I am sitting on a mountain of food but I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH but if we have to leave what good would it do me??? So I feel the tremendous feeling to go buy more food since I am at 4 months...

    Is anyone else out there?? Are you worried? My dd will be 5 in a week and she's obese. There. I said it. The pediatrician's word. No explanations, no caveats, no attempts to minimize. I'm very worried, and feeling very unsuccessful at my attempts to slow down her weight gain. I've never...
