QUESTIONS? / Must have some carbs!
« Last post by Kidless on Today at 06:37:42 AM »
Hubby and I have been on the Keto plan since last Thanksgiving.  It was working well until he started feeling just terrible.  No energy, no life, no nothing.  We started adding a few carbs back into his diet and all is well now.  Being a big guy, I feel like he must have some carbs.  Have any of you experienced anything like this?

Empty Nest and being Single (again) / Re: Marriage again???

I am right there with you Quiet Abode.  I grew up in a very moral household.  However, at this stage in my life practicality outweighs ritual.  Like I said, if anything happens to my current hubby, I think I will be happy by myself and running with my girlfriends.   :13:

Our Pets! / Re: Is three always a crowd?

Over the years we have had as many as 7 cats at a time.  These were mostly outdoor cats and most were related.  There were a couple that were not part of the clan but they all seemed to get along.  Maybe you could bring in a puppy.  If one of your seniors were to pass on the other would grieve.  If you had a pup to keep it company it wouldn't be so bad.

Kids returning home? Nest not so empty now? / Re: It Never Ends!

Are the grandkids old enough to help around the house or make their own simple meals?  Let them do their own thing if they're able.  Since they live nearby, could you watch them at their house instead of yours?  Theoretically, that would mean you'd have less mess to clean and your daughter could provide easy meals and snacks.


Lots of great advice here.  I'm taking notes for the future.

Staying Healthy As We Age! / Re: Another update

I hope everything turns out okay, amsmomm.  I'm glad you were able to have your questions answered and think it's a good sign that your doctor was able to do so.  I've seen so many who rushed through that part.

Some "Fun" things to do.... / Re: Attending Class Reunions/Keeping Up
« Last post by CalamityJane on Yesterday at 03:44:16 PM »
Some of my closest friends are people I went to school with, but I don't go to my reunions. Many, many moons ago, I went to my five year reunion, but it was kind of silly because everyone was still in touch at that point. Since then, I keep in touch with those I really care about and say hi once in a while on social media to distant memories.

Every Day Conversations / Re: Struggling with finances

I don't understand why this isn't taught in school. I mean, yes, parents should be teaching it at home, but I think it would also be a good addition to the classroom, too. Besides, not all grownups are good with money and the children of those parents are going to have a hard time later on down the road.

Our Pets! / Is three always a crowd?
« Last post by CalamityJane on Yesterday at 03:35:37 PM »
Years ago, we had three dogs and we had to find a new home for one of them because she just couldn't get along with the other two. Now those two are getting older and we would like to add a third to the mix again, but I'm hesitant because of what happened in the past. I know lots of people who have an odd amount of pets and they have no issues. Do you have three dogs or three cats? Does everyone get along?

We have been organizing a reunion for the longest time ever! Somehow, it is not easy to get all our classmates, together, at the same time. The last reunion still had a few people sending their apologies but either way, it would be awesome to meet all friends from the years gone by.

This is quite a sacrifice and I also think you need someone to relieve you of the pressure that comes with taking care of these little ones. On the other hand, it isn't easy to start doing tasks that you last did a decade or two ago.
