Re: Daily Check in Oct 14, 2015

Logics, you have been the best daughter your mom could ask for, and it's the right thing to turn her care over to professionally trained people who can watch after her 'round the clock without you bankrupting yourself or killing yourself with overwork. Change is hard, especially for very diligent pe...

Re: Daily Check In October 13, 2015

Rinty, it's a wonder you and your DH didn't get sick from that soup. Fish that tastes metallic has usually begun to go bad before it was processed. Yuck.

Re: What are you 'Nose Blind' to in your home?

It's also little nicks in the paint for me. Every now and then I have a day of putting on my painting clothes and doing touch-up painting most of the day. Our big cats both scratch at the doors, so there's always something to fix. And shamefully, also spider webs. My eyesight is not great and I have...

Re: Sauces from the Pantry

Thanks, everyone. Dlrcpa, I also look for recipes that only require what can be stored in the pantry. I hate it when some recipe is trumpeted as "best brownies ever" and it requires a big block of chocolate and some other thing I don't have here at home.
