Re: Healthy Living Thread

DeeJay, when we sold our condo, the only thing our buyer insisted we do was have the stove adjusted to be 100% level. It turns out the wood floors in the condo only went partially under the stove, meaning the back of the stove was lower than the front and while we never noticed the discrepancy, the ...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

So I wrote a long (for me) post and it didn't post. Agggghhhhhhhh. Let's try this again. Marcy, LOL on being bored by doing the sheets. Laundry isn't fun no matter how you slice the cake. I like the bracelet a lot! Another day of freedom before you have to go back to reality, right? DeeJay, your sel...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Marcy, my brother and SIL simply loved the house. I didn't think they were going to go home. We were going to get in the spa, just as we heard a clap of thunder and saw lightning. Needless to say, the spa was out. But Charlie and I did get in after they left and it was nice and relaxing. Dinner was ...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

DeeJay, congrats on a great review! Funny fact. Not one company I've ever worked for has done a performance review on me. Not one. I would imagine I would have gotten good reviews. But still, never had to sit through one. Good idea finding the metal cover for the electrical panel. Can't imagine how ...

My father would have loved Trump and my brother definitely does. I don't fit my family either. You can choose your friends, but you're stuck with who brung 'ya to the party!

DeeJay, are you absolutely certain he is your biological father? I'm not sure how you could have grown up under him? If I had gotten there to a Trump, Make America Great Again T-Shirt, I'd have walked away. Yes I would have! LOL I'm sure it surprises no one that I think he's the absolute worst, leas...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

I see it Marcy!!! (at least I see the ship, or at least I think I do!)

And yes, it's still HOT HOT HOT down here. Though today will only be about 90. Which is better than the 95 we had on Saturday.

Marcy, I gave up trying to find a link to the ship with either car on it. I just had to put it out of mind and wait for them to call and let me know it was at the VPC center. You'll get your car soon and then the pain of waiting will all be over! I'm skipping the iPhone 7 this time around. We finall...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

DeeJay, sometimes I think it's sad we get stuck in careers we don't necessarily find fulfilling or enjoyable. But the bills don't go away and we do what we have to do. I hope the boathouse is still above water and you have a great time in Orlando this weekend. It's HOT HOT HOT down here. Pack lightly.

That's never good. Otherwise I just hunkered down and spent the day trying to find more candidates. To be ...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Marcy, I'm glad you're feeling better. Yes, children are nothing but petri dishes of all manners of bacteria.

I didn't sleep much at all last night. When things go wrong, I so internalize them. That's just how I'm wired. Hopefully, today will be calmer.

DeeJay, if you're taking phone shots, you HAVE to take them horizontally (sideways), not vertically (not up and down). i.e., your home button would be on the right hand not the bottom when you snap the picture.

Beautiful DeeJay! Thanks for posting pics!!

The stove was just picked up. Such nice people! The husband grew up very near where Charlie's twin brother lives in Buffalo NY.

I think we're just going to grill burgers on the grill tonight.

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Marcy as you likely saw, we didn't cook on the new stove tonight. Since we were out shopping, it was too late to get something cook worthy, so we ate out. But we will definitely cook at home tomorrow night. Woo Hoo for your car close to NJ. Does it get trucked from NJ all the way to WY? That's quite...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

I hope the little leak from the pedestal sink isn't much of an issue. I'm sure the CB can fix it. I hope you had a great dinner and glass of wine on the dock. We had a great day actually. Since the stove was installed early, we were able to go out and do some shopping at Home Depot (our normal Satur...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Marcy, if you could be guaranteed the investment would pay for itself, it's worth it. I've found that often it doesn't actually make much difference. I thought the 4 day week was one of the longest weeks ever. Like you said, it took forever to get to 5 PM yesterday. I spent half the day reading cust...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Marcy, I hope the repairs you're going to do to the Audi will net you more $$ on the trade. I love Carbonite as a backup/storage option. It took about a day for my laptop to backup completely, but if it ever dies, all I have to do is get a new laptop, log into my Carbonite account and tell it to dow...

I do however have a cloud based backup subscription I pay fo...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Marcy.....YAY that your car is on a ship heading to the US. I wonder if the ship docks on the east or west coast? Once a car comes off a ship, it has to go through QC, then customs, so that takes a bit of time. Then it's assigned to a truck for its trip to the dealer. I hope it goes fast for you. BT...
