Yes. I was told by our minister “Don’t ever think you’re going to live until adulthood. The rapture is coming at any minute!”

I broke my glasses last fall, and the optician was able to repair them with a part from a pair that had been donated to the Lion’s Club. I vowed that I would never only have one pair again (my eyes are so bad I cannot function at all without them) and decided this year to try online glasses (I did get a pair from the Read more

I’d been home with a stomach bug for a week, and realized that I had to pay the taxes and renew the tags for my car as it was the end of the month. I’d kept down some ginger ale and crackers, so I though I was over it. I got in the incredibly long line at the DMV and started waiting. I started feeling ill, but thought Read more

My dress was too long, and I couldn't afford to have it hemmed, so I had to be really careful. I was, however, a little nervous about the ceremony, and when we were walking up the steps at the front of the church, I stepped on my skirt. I heard my bridesmaids gasp, as I had a brief moment of panic, then thought Read more

Yeah, it's satire. I mean, does ANYONE believe that $2 and change is a living wage?

Exactly! I've used my Vision pots since '92 or '93 (boy am I an old!), and only messed up one — and it wasn't a crack or break. I had hot spiced cider boiling in my big pot, and I turned it down but not off before I left to go out to eat with my sister. I got home to find that it had cooked dry, and there were Read more

I'm having a wretched day — my Dad passed away exactly one month ago today. I have a feeling I'll be bawling my eyes out at 6:33 tonight. At least we were with him, and I was holding his hand and rubbing his head when we lost him.

My Mom has found Visions and Corning Ware casserole dishes broken in the cupboard (and they weren't put in there broken!). I'm dreading that happening to me, because I adore my Visions pots. They're the only ones I use.

I spoke at my father's funeral last month, and totally twisted the minister's nose out of joint— in that church, women do NOT speak to men. Women can sing for the congregation, but what can a woman tell a man about anything? Read more

That is EXACTLY what I was thinking of! The poor girls getting married to old men, who of course don't care about the boys....

Thank you. They have — though big girl won't let little get near me. SHE is the one who snuggles! ONLY she!

I'm so sorry about your Mom! Oh, does it EVER suck! I did great the week it happened, spoke at the memorial service and everything — but since then, some things break me down — gingerbreadman mentioned going to Arby's, and they have a turkey sandwich, and that made me think of last Thanksgiving when Dad was so happy Read more

And cool, too! :) My Dad got IBS, too, so I got it from him. I don't know where my gingerbreadman got it from, but now we're a lovely household of IBS people with their IBS dogs....

Silly dogs! Our older dog did fine until her older sister died suddenly at the kennel (that was horrible, but she had a heart murmur and it had been getting worse, but still she was just TOO YOUNG!), but then started getting sick every time she went there. We got her a little sister because she was SO devastated to Read more

I'm upset about my sister right now. My Dad passed away three weeks ago, after being in hospice for five weeks. My sister would go visit, say "Hi" to my Dad, and then go into the living room. Mom would ask for help in rolling Dad over or something, and she refused. Always. She and my brother & his family live in Read more

Oh, our schnauzers do this, too — every time they stay at the puppy resort, one or the other (or both!) gets sick! Their's is more like irritable bowel syndrome, major bloody diarrhea. Off to the vet for antibiotics, probiotics, and REALLY expensive easy-on-the-tummy food. I guess it's only fair that since I get Read more

I CAN'T believe my in-laws did that. I can't. You can't trust anyone any more!
