[ - ] This is hysterical. My DH took an online HR test about workplace sexual harassment. One of the question was (I am paraphrasing): "is it OK to visit an adult entertainment club with colleagues or clients after work?". The footnote to the question read: the company will not reimburse such expenses. OMG. 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

To my recollection, it actually was.

[ - ] Renee Zellweger is maybe the most famous actress to wipe her face away, but it's been done before. Meg Ryan is almost as famous and did the same thing. The most incredible wiping away of a face belongs to actress Kate Capshaw (Mrs. Steven Spielberg). She had surgery a decade+ ago and she looks NOTHING like she used to look.

[ - ] Talk me down -- I had bloodwork after a positive pregnancy test and hcg levels were fine going from 36 to 98 in 48 hours. Then today (9 days later) I went to have them done again (so I'm about 5 weeks, 3 days). I really just wanted to see how high the levels were to figure out when to go in for a first ultrasound. This is on the heels of two miscarriages. Anyway, the doctor just called me back but I missed the call. The message said 'I was calling to talk to you about your levels and situation. I hope you are doing well. I'd like to see you soon for an ultrasound, perhaps next Tuesday or Wednesday if you have time' - I am FREAKING out and now the office is closed (left msg with answering service).

there are a lot of stories.

There is another story about nurses who tended to a breastfeeding baby who came in with an ebola positive mother. The mother died but the nurses could not leave the baby crying … the baby died then the nurses died.

[ - ] Creating bedroom for elderly parent and starting from scratch. Need 1st impressions if you have them. Would you think they would prefer an unconventional bed placement if it would permit a seating room area; or would you think a standard bed placement with just a large stuffed chair and ottoman for their own use would be best? I can always change I guess but it would be great to get it right the first time. Mom will have no visitors but she might like to feel like she could have them. Mom doesn't yet know about what's happening so I'm flying by the seat of my pants here. Thanks again to you all for putting up with me. 11 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

BTW - the unconventional bed placement would involve putting a headboard against a window. [ Reply | More ]

Can you put the chair by the window so she can sit and look out of it? [ Reply | More ]

op. Thank you .. I have seen that recommendation. Actually the windows don't face anything special. It's just a weird room in the very back of the house looking towards woods that basically start a few feet from the window. Not much to see and it's conservation land so we can't cut it down (but there wouldn't be any view anyway). Basically imagine looking out at a rainforest from every window. [ Reply | More ]

I could bring her out of her room for other views. This is just for her personal space. [ Reply | More ]

This is nice you're thinking through it so carefully. I would most definitley not out the headboard against a window. No way on that one. Put the bed in it proper place and design the rest around it. [ Reply | More ]

op. Thank you very much for this - I really appreciate it. I think my mother might also vehemently disapprove now that I think about it. I think I might just make the room like all her other rooms looked. And they put the bed smack dab in the center of the room. This is just a new thing and she's never had to put her whole life into one room. But she does like hotel rooms which do the same thing I guess. thank you again. [ Reply | More ]

You might be safest doing the room YOU would like most if you were in the same position. At least you will be able to sell it. Would your mother like a bedroom? A room like a hotel room? Or would she like the semblance of a studio? [ Reply | More ]

Personally (who knows if I'm anything like your mother) I have my bedroom set up a little bit weird, so I could fit two armchairs and a small coffee table. [ Reply | More ]

You are so kind. Do you have kids that will come in and talk to her? Seating may help. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] In LA for work and it has changed so much! Downtown LA is actually nice now and as on its way to becoming Manhattan-ized. 13 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

If you can find someone with a California id to get the tickets it's less, but that might only be for year passes. [ Reply | More ]

Only way I know is if you are military and get the tickets on the base. Occasionally there are promotions for CA residents, but must show ID. Dland has gotten ridiculously expensive! [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I have a new path to sanity. I work a hard job, but with flexible hours. I can leave pretty early and catch up on things when my daughter is asleep. I am a single mom. I have her 80% of the time. I adore her, and love our life together. Every weekday I leave as early as I possibly can to get home and hang with her. Means I stay up late working. I love our weekends, but sometimes feel so fried on Friday afternoon that her high energy is hard for me to gear up for. Last two weeks I have poured a glass of wine in a Klean Kanteen, left work at 3:30, gone to a movie and drank my glass of wine. I get home at 6:30, relaxed and ready for a good weekend. 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
