Re: Healthy Living Thread

It sounds like you had a nice weekend, Rod and Marcy. We did nothing and it was great. I wish I could sleep in when I have no plans but that rarely happens. I went out only once and that was to do a quick grocery run. Other than that, we watched several episodes of Veep, read, and made a couple of n...

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Thanks, Rod! Marcy, how nice to be able to meet Marty for lunch during the work week. I don't know how he does it - keeping up his travel schedule. Dee*Jay, thanks for the suggestion. We eat salmon 1-2 times per week. I love shrimp, so I have that occasionally, too. No, I don't eat lamb. I'm glad th...

Rod, thanks for explaining how it works. I may have vented a bit too much earlier, sorry! :oops: I think I need to take a chill pill. :bigsmile: Someone called D. today about contract positions. One seemed like a better fit, D. thought, so he's waiting to hear back from the person with more details....

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Dee*Jay, the chicken dish that CB made sounds really good. As for following up with someone when you say you will, yeah, I'm that way too. I can't believe you waited months for someone to get in touch. That's frustrating. Rod, I'm pretty sure he's mentioned places he'd like to work when he spoke to ...

Hi MrsWhitney! (I didn't realize that you and UCLABelle are one and the same.) I'm so glad that you're happy with Tennessee. I've never been there so I couldn't comment or give advice earlier, but I'm glad to read that you're settling in nicely. I'm so happy, as well, that you love your new doctors....

Re: Healthy Living Thread

Rod, I meant to ask you, is it ever recommended that someone work with more than one recruiter/headhunter (what's the preferred term anyway?) at a time, or is that considered a no-no? I figured it would be good to contact more than one (the more help the better, was my thought). D. disagrees and he ...

Re: What does materialistic mean?

To me, someone is materialistic if he/she places a high value on STUFF (often but not always flashy things that show off what you own). Materialistic people like having stuff -- some things may reflect their taste and personality, while other things are just accumulated. I agree with Arkie's stateme...

Re: Ever have non-materialistic week?

Most of the jewelry pieces I own are costume jewelry, and I rarely buy new things. I love to donate items and I go through our house at least twice a year looking for things we can give away. We've moved often over the years and that has definitely helped us get rid of stuff. I'd love to get to a po...

Re: Selling My House (advice?)

Dee*Jay, we did both, and yes, we worked with a realtor. Our realtor walked through our condo and gave us what he thought was a fair listing price. We went with that, knowing we'd have to negotiate somewhat, and we thought it was a fair listing price. The offer we received a couple months later wasn...

Great advice, Dee*Jay. We sold our condo a year ago and we regret not having it appraised ourselves.

Re: What's in your purse?! Photos welcome!

I'm a minimalist when it comes to my bags and I don't always carry one. I usually just have my wallet, phone, checkbook (for the rare occasions I need it), a pen or two, a mini brush, and Tylenol or other medicine. I try to leave my keys in my pocket.
