Staying Healthy As We Age! / Re: Hot Yoga
« Last post by littleone on Today at 06:11:09 AM »
Since my wife has been interested in yoga lately, we did a little research recently. Most articles posted on trusted sources said that the differences were not significant. You can do either of them and still walk away healthy if you do it right. The temperature in hot yoga is also intimidating and risky.

Did any of you have a different experience with hot yoga?

Empty Nest.."What's Next" for you?? / Re: How to find new friends?
« Last post by littleone on Today at 06:01:58 AM »
My wife and I are going through something similar. As adults, we can sense when others are being superficially friendly, so we draw ourselves back into the comfort zone when that happens. For now, we're just trying to get along with our neighbors a bit more. Have you and your wife tried it, David?

Katy, what do you usually talk about with new friends?

Our Empty Nest / Re: Still sad
« Last post by Guineagirl on Today at 02:46:14 AM »
Hello again Guineagirl. How was your holiday with your daughter? I'm sure you had a great time with her. My family had a vacation as well and that is why I wasn't here for a long time.


Hi MomOfTwo, Iím glad you had a lovely holiday itís very kind of you to remember.  We had a great time with her it feels better being three or us not two, probably the same as you feel too. Itís just more fun.   She visited last weekend, so the next visit is us to her or her to us on the 2 November she hasnít decided which, we let her decide. X  when will you be next together?

The Grieving Room / Words We Shouldn't Say
« Last post by MomOfTwo on Yesterday at 09:09:43 PM »
I had a conversation with my friend last weekend, while we were staying in their house. We talked about the things that we shouldn't say to a grieving person such as "God has a plan for your loved one", "I know how you feel", or "you can get over it as time pass on". These words will hurt more instead of consoling the person that is grieving.

We just had a family travel vacation. It is not an out of the country travel or even a long distance travel. We camped for a week and then stayed with a family friend last weekend.

Every Day Conversations / Re: Anger management
« Last post by MomOfTwo on Yesterday at 08:39:20 PM »
It is hard to swallow my pride at first because I thought I did nothing wrong. I gathered up my strength to approach my son and asked for forgiveness. I smiled because it is like I heard myself with his response. He said: "Don't do it again mommy!"  :13:

Every Day Conversations / Re: Celebrating your birthday
« Last post by Layla on Yesterday at 05:54:35 AM »
I can definitely relate. I feel like if I don't plan something specific for my birthday, it will just go forgotten, and I'll be left to celebrate it alone. I usually try to make plans with a friend or two in advance so that I know I won't be alone. I truly hope that you have a good friend who will celebrate with you - you deserve to have a great celebration!

Your Life After the Nest has Emptied: How is it? / Re: Depression
« Last post by Layla on Yesterday at 05:48:44 AM »
That's a really interesting question.

I think it would be a great idea if parents sought counselling - either individual or couples counselling - before their kids leave home. It might help prepare us better for their absence. When we get into an emotional place, it's hard for us to think objectively about solutions to our issues, and a therapist could definitely help with that.

Our Empty Nest Marriage / Re: Husband Irritates Me More
« Last post by Layla on Yesterday at 05:39:08 AM »
Thank goodness I am not alone! My husband's little annoyances are just about to drive me insane, and I don't know what to do about it because he is set in his ways. If I remind him politely to put his clothes in the hamper, he'll say, "Okay," but then he won't actually do it.
