Re: Cold feet!

"So is this a woman thing? An age thing? A "I-lost-a-lot-of-weight-and-my-temperature-control-changed" thing? Anyone else have this problem?"

Re: A strange thing happened

DH and I have been seriously considering going back to paying via cash and check due to the prevalence of debit/credit card fraud. I will risk getting rolled eyes from others in line as I write out a check, if it means increased finanacial security [more]

Re: So about Retiring Early...

I retired at 56, DH at 57. This is within the last few years, and we are still in transition. Our house will go up for sale in spring, and will hopefully net us enough to buy a small condo here (near to the grown kids) and invest a pretty good chunk [more]

Re: What's in your emergency kit?

I have a home near the ocean (hurricane issues) and one in the far north midwest (snow, cold issues) so my emergency bags look dififerent in the two places.

Re: Flea Market?

It really depends on several variables...we have done this, with mixed results.

1. What do you have to sell? Shabby chic decor is hot around here, painted wooden things, rusty stuff is big, collectables. If you just have household stuff, [more]

Re: Dressing up

Clothing sizes are fiction. I wear 3 different sizes, depending on manufacturer. I can never buy clothing on the internet...invariably it doesn't fit.
I hate buying dressy clothes...I am under 5' tall and not skinny. Having said all of that, I [more]

Re: Things that are currently annoying me

Those ceramic tiles look really great. But question....is there am "echo-y" sound from them? I am thinking a hard surface will bounce sound more than hardwood? I have been hesitant to give up carpeting in large spaces because of this little [more]

Re: Starting late

DH has a high school buddy who just had his first child a few years ago. IIRC, child is about 3....and Dad is 58 (new wife is in her late 20's). I just cannot wrap my head around being 73 before your kid graduates from high school. Having said that, [more]

Re: One of each

Marching band, and band in general, was the best experience of my school life. Period. Yes, the time commitment is crazy, just like any sport (and anyone who doesn't think marching band is a sport has never been in marching band). I played a double [more]

Condos?

DH and I have decided to downsize into a condo. This will be a second home (for summer and to maintain contact with grown kids) in addition to our home we have purchased for retirement in a different part of the country.
