  1. Happy Belated Birthday Wishes!! Sunny-I love the shoes you chose. They kinda look like they have cat faces on the top, too. I have a good thought/prayer request for Mr. Six & I. I can't go into specifics right now, so I need to keep it unspoken for the time being time. I will say, I feel like my mental health is feeling threatened at the present. I'm just not doing well. Please know, I am physically safe, not in harm's way, and my husband has been amazing through it all. I just need some time to work through some things, and everything should be handled by mid-September. Tha
  2. My uncle, but it was very brief (less than 24 hours, but I'm thinking it was closer to 12). He had multiple stents placed after, but he did end up needing a quad bypass. Since having the bypass, he's had relatively good health. He would take an extensive vacation with his wife every year and maintained his own business. Your friend will be in my thoughts.
  3. @ozziemom, thank you for the congrats!! Mr. Six's office decided to hold their summer crab fest this year, so off to the city we went on Saturday evening. With his promotion, we need to make appearances at events (boo!) I woke up Saturday morning in more pain than usual. I couldn't walk, and I was taking each step one at a time. It took me 90 minutes to get ready, and my chosen highlighter shade was so bright, it could be seen from space. If you saw a random reflection in the sky, sorry! I ended up ordering a Long Island iced tea, and damn, that bartender pours heavy. I also found an
  4. @jjane--You and your niece have been in my thoughts over the past few weeks. I hope and pray you are able to get her to safety soon. My heart just aches for her. This should be the best time of her life, but instead, she's living each day in fear. An adult cannot even begin to process that, let alone a young woman her age. Please take care of yourself too. The last 6 weeks or so has been up & down. I was talking to my mom on Father's Day, and out of nowhere, she tells me her cat passed away while we were talking. He wasn't sick (that she was aware of), but he was at least 15. We
  5. Why didn't you tell us earlier that you were at Jessa & Bin's birthday celebration for Ivy?!! Is the couch really that bad? Spill everything (just not the ice cream).
  6. Starting with Jill's wedding (since Anna & asshat got married in Florida), I always thought JB & M had a 'wedding rolodex'. In it, contained all of the demographic information for the many sweet friends they met through fellowship & obligatory seasons of life. This grew exponentially over the years as more and more of the youngins wanted to marry screw. At the very back was a list of appropriate vendors who would create one dress out of 10, slap some icing on a cake, and build very elaborate (and tacky) monogram initial billboards. And, really, at the end of the day, it's not
  7. Maryland dropped the mask mandate, effective today. Every place we went today (grocery store, Target x3, and Walmart, and car dealership to pick up my permanent tags) still required masks. I have been taking it off once I get to the parking lot every once in a while, but it feels weird. Mr. Six still has 3 days until his two-week wait is over, and I've been good since May 10th. I'm still not ready to dine indoor though, since dropping our mandate means they don't have to social distance the tables and can take down any barriers that were between tables. It feels like we were doing 100mph
  8. A huge thank you to everyone who commented on the grocery delivery topic. I'm a member of Swagbucks, and they're currently offering 11,000 Bucks if you join Walmart+. I might be able to combine with Rakuten, which is offering $50 on an annual membership. Those are making the $98 a bit easier to swallow. Thanks again!
  9. I have done Instacart once, and I only did it because it was a BJs trip, I had free delivery, and it was at the beginning of Covid. I got an email showing possible substitutions. One was the hubby's body wash-I chose Dove Men+Care, and the sub would have been Irish Spring. He was totally fine with that. The other was his deodorant. He only uses a specific Gillette gel. The sub was those GoGo Squeeze Yogurts for kids. Not quite what he was looking for. They were out of a few things, but overall, it was a good experience & my lady was very nice. Has anyone subscribed to Walmart+?
  10. My first thought was chose the one that is most convenient to you, location wise. It will make things easier in the long run. I've heard an over-whelming majority of people have no effects after Pfizer. A lot of people that had Moderna had a very rough time after the second, and that includes my mom. She's 68, mostly healthy with elevated cholesterol and a back injury. About 12 hours after the injection, she had horrendous chills, headache, and body aches. It lasted until the following evening. I had both doses of Pfizer, and my two-week wait is over May 10th. My appointment was l
  11. Thank you all for the kind replies. She passed away a little after noon today in one of her favorite boxes in the kitchen. Mr. Six & I were both with her. I did some research last night, and we had/have no options with it being a weekend. The closest thing I could find required you to be a resident of Baltimore City, and we are literally less than 3 miles into the county. We will be calling our vet in the morning to make further arrangements. It was as peaceful as we could have hoped, and I know this is just the beginning of a new normal. We still have two babies that need us, and I
  12. I don't mean to take such a morbid turn, but for those who lost a pet at home, what steps did you take in the immediate timeframe afterwards? Our sweet Millie is in her final days, and our vet is closed until Monday morning. After our one and only visit to the pet er, we know we don't want to take her there. We are doing what we can to make her comfortable at home. She did eat a substantial amount of wet food today, and she is still drinking, but she's very unsteady on her feet. The vet has her estimated age at 15 years, and we've had her 12 1/2 years. She came to us a fluffy, sassy,
  13. Thank you!! We got the chance to sit in one, but they didn't have any inventory to even test drive. He told us immediately that they were ordering now for delivery in July/August. They make things a little too easy too. They don't run a credit check or anything in the beginning. You give them your name, phone number, email, and a $100 deposit, and that orders your car. You pick the exterior color, interior color, and wheels. That's it. They'll call when it comes in, and you have the ability to accept or reject it. On a side note, Mr. Six also needed a new office chair for when he work
  14. Did you ever do something and even hours later, you still can't help but say WTF? That's how our day went. The lease is up on my Crosstrek later this year, and we knew we didn't want another one. Our first option was a 2021 Ford Escape. We ordered a Tesla Model 3. Mr. Six knows this is my dream car. And he works so fucking hard every single day to support our little family, and it looks like my dream might come true. With the way they work, we can walk away at any point, including after it's delivered to the dealer. I have been blessed beyond measure in many ways, but this is a blessin
  15. I always do a search for the phone number when I see a number I don't know. With Mr. Six working from home 50% and him being on the state's list for his vax, I feel like I need to do some due diligence, just in case. Every single number I've searched in the last 6 weeks or so has shown up on NoMoreRobo's website. All scams, but the most popular one is a recording asking if I think veteran's benefits are important. Seriously? We have Vonage, so I can block numbers through them, but our landline phone has a call block button on it. Best phone we've had! I'm impressed with how many sta
