Mom wants me to move back in with her. I can have the master bedroom, and bring girls over anytime.


Because you know that the best pickup line for guys is "I still live at home with Mom."

You tell her only if you can live in the basement, it's the best option. It could be your fortress of solitude.

It was already in the trash by the time I got home, so a couple of hours at 60 degrees. By then, I was sure.

Busy night last night. Friends without power were coming for dinner and to spend the night with power. As they were getting a change of clothes, their power came back. But already had picked up dinner so they came by. Son and fiance stopped up as well. Only for showers even though they don't have power. Warm enough this year to stay home without power.

Wait until utilities are completely restored and you can be assured of properly flushing toilets. THEN eat the cheese and ONLY tell us how it turns out if you didn't need the properly flushing toilets. If you DID need the properly flushing toilets just post:

*flush*

And that's really all we'll need to know.

Dumb questions:

What about your house? Wouldn't she be better off selling hers and moving in with you instead? Or is their house bigger/nicer than yours?

What would you do with your place? I know a Realtor in San Diego who buys awesome cookies.

Is your mom just lonely or does she actually need your assistance?

Has she looked into a community at all? Not a home, but one of those apartment complexes that only allow elderly residents and have a nurse on staff at all hours. My grandma lives in one of those, loves it. My wife's godmother does also, she totally came around as soon as she moved out of her son's and into her complex.

Cool! It may be time for a thread for that event, since people are starting to make specific arrangements to attend. It's my understanding that thread creation rights are very closely guarded.

Waiting 25 minutes so far at the dermatologist's office. And, I was here on time! Gotta love this place. Not!

Edit: OK: 42 minutes from checkin to car with exam complete. Doctor was thorough. I have a clean bill of health! Yippee!

I see. So your refusal to consider me and my LW as attendees is based on my SUGGESTION that since several people had shown interest, it MIGHT be time to consider starting a thread. I had no idea it would provoke such grumbling. Besides, I was under the impression that only HRH PS was authorized to create that particular thread. Apparently not.

Buzz!~!. As duly appointed PSith PadawanS of HRH, I created the thread last year and cheron created it the year before.


The grumbling was having to create it before the official PSILY post.


And as for the two of you, as you noticed, you two were already added to the weekend thread. But due to computer problems (yes, ironic, I know!), you were left off the D&D list. Which has been rectified.

Of course you NEED to attend! The better question is does HE need to attend?? Think of all the extra $$ available to buy fine wine that weekend!!

I tasted it this past weekend. It's interesting. It's nothing like a big Napa cab, and that's kind of the point. They're trying to make it in the fashion of the pre-big-Napa-can movement. Alc. was 14.5%. $40/bottle wasn't screaming QPR, but it was rather enjoyable. We didn't buy any of it, but did think about it.

Senility?


Got my system working a lot better now, should have worked on it when it first started acting up. Then adding you two on the list wouldn't have slipped.

But it did give me the chance to tease you when I added you two to the D&D list.

I am disappointed in my daughter. We only walked about three blocks on our Trick or Treat Quest. In past years we've filled her entire candy bag to the brim (no small feat). Shoulda made her take a nap after school. I knew I shoulda, but I didn't cause I didn't want to argue with her. Oh well, she had fun and got enough candy.
