Re: Not everyone wants kids

Telephone, my husband brought that up, as well. I didn't mean if someone had NO one out there or if family members couldn't be found. I was thinking of estranged siblings or relatives who hadn't tended to relationships as Alj mentioned, but I didn't specify that I guess. Alj, we're doing the same th...

Re: Not everyone wants kids

I get what you're saying, CJ. While I don't really see it as intrusive, I definitely understand that others may feel differently. iLander, your question is what makes me upset at times. While we're several years from making a plan for when we may need assistance, it's something I think about. Not on...

Re: Not everyone wants kids

I actually don't think it's rude to ask when or if someone is planning on having kids. I think it's an honest curiosity, not a question with malice or thoughtlessness behind it. I do begin to feel uncomfortable though when I give them my answer* and I get more probing questions such as "Why?&qu...

Re: Not everyone wants kids

I used to get asked about when we were having kids, but it's stopped pretty much now. I think people know by now that it's not going to happen.

Re: What are your favorite / go-to snacks?

I eat a lot of fruit - bananas, strawberries, raspberries, mango, seedless grapes, grape or cherry tomatoes, and bell peppers with hummus. I also love popcorn and Outshine yogurt bars and Popsicles.

Re: Things That BUG You That Don't Seem To Bother Anyone Els

It bugs me when someone "likes" and/or shares/comments on everything they see on FB. They comment on those random pictures that companies post, and I always wonder if they think they're commenting to someone specifically hoping for a reply in return. I also dislike when people act overly f...

Re: Higher quality canned cat food recs

Thanks so much, ecf! Very helpful! Good point about how cats already eat by-products when they eat mice in the wild. Well, ours don't because they're indoor cats, but I get what you mean.

I know there have been threads before about what type of pet food is recommended, but I thought I'd start an updated one.

Re: Poll: do you pump your own gas?

Isn't New Jersey one of the states where only attendants are allowed to pump gas? When I first heard this a number of years ago while driving though, I was surprised. I pump my own gas because most gas stations around us are self-serve.
