Michaela, the Cabin and Porch are kind of like the Room of Requirement - it gives us what we need when we need it.

I'm so glad you're here! You've been sorely missed.

Jana, how are your broken toes coming along?

I'm sorry for SweetPea. I hope she knows it's a good decision and she can move forward in a healthy direction.

I have to get back to work. I have a ton of things to do today and none of them can be put off until tomorrow.

We have a rule about no food in the bedrooms for the same reason. It takes forever to get rid of the ants. Or, well, more accurately, to substantially lower the population. Despite no food in the bedrooms, we still get ants. In the space of about a week, I got about a dozen ant bites, mostly on my face. Not fun! I'm allergic to these ants, so massive swelling.

Anyway. Point being, massive sympathy and understanding from me.

I’m so glad to see you, Michaela!

Things have been same old same old here. Too hot for comfort.

I begged for six months to be released from being RS Pres. I had started perimenopause and my health went from not good to terrible in a very short space of time. Just making it to church took up all my energy for the week - I couldn’t function otherwise. I ended up crying and crying and crying when I asked the branch president to be released. Finally, it worked, probably because he finally saw what bad shape I was in.

The letter writing thing is probably far more effective. But if necessary, make them see how it’s affecting you.

I am so sorry for your losses, Iggy. Losing a pet can be difficult. I felt that same thing, by the way - the cat jumping on the bed and snuggling up to me. It wasn't an actual cat, of course, but I felt it all the same.

Sounds like you have good goals to work on. Much success to you. :)

It's not public information everywhere, that's for sure.

In Sri Lanka, birth death and marriage records aren't even online. If you want to get a copy of your birth certificate, you have to provide the information, proving you are the person in question, then someone has to look it up in the relevant province/district, then extract the information.

When we got married 15 years ago, it was on a paper form in Sinhalese. It was written out in English first, probably only because I was there, then everything was translated into Sinhalese for the official record. On paper.

It's only this year that my spousal residence visa has gone electronic, at least for the issuance part.

When requesting police reports - which you have to do for certain types of visas - you fill out  a paper form and submit to the cops. Then the form gets forwarded to the relevant police departments in every district where they manually go through the paper records to see if there's a criminal report.

Nothing is electronic.

I agree with Palmon, by the way, Dyany. Also, I've never found you annoying. I rather enjoy the person you are. You're fabulous!

I agree - let them "win". Your sanity/emotional & psychological & physical health is way more important.

The new stretch cotton bottoms have no elastic on the edges.

I suspect for those of you having cotton and elastic come apart that condition may be the result of bleach use --- cotton is originally a gray (because that is less expensive) and it is dyed white.  So bleaching it tends to turn it dingy instead of whitening.
Not me. I don't use bleach in the laundry. Ever. I don't think I ever have for even one single load.

I haven't listened/watched it yet, although it did pass by on my facebook newsfeed. I don't really have the time for it right now, and video/audio is never a good medium for me anyway. Does she have a written summary that you know of?

Redd! So glad you're here! It's great to hear you have running water again. I don't ever want to be without that, so I don't know how crazy that might have made you feel. But so glad you have it now!

The lace trim is a problem for me, too. I have huge legs. I have always had huge legs. When I was skinny, if I were to fit the garment bottoms based on my waist, it would have been a size 28 or 30. Fitted for my hips made it a 32 or 34. If I were to fit them for my legs to be comfortable, it would have had to be at least a 38, but probably larger. The elastic/lace trim bites into my legs in the most uncomfortable way.

I normally prefer cotton or other natural fibers, but have switched over to drisilk. Partly it's due to the lace trim thing, but partly, it's because I sleep better in drisilk - it's easier for me to switch position and the cotton/poly provides too much friction for that.

I used to have 100% cotton ones that lasted about a half dozen washes...
Seriously? You washed them 6 or 7 times & they fell apart? :( I have 100% cotton & I find them very durable. Some I know I've had for more than a year, & none of them are threadbare after dozens of washings.
Yes, seriously. They weren't threadbare, nor did the seams come apart. The fabric itself just ripped, fast and furiously. Gloriously huge rips. It was like the fabric had just rotted and decided "no more". It ripped so easily that there was no way that any repair job was likely to keep it together.

It was quite a while ago - about, oh, 16 or 17 years ago I think. Hopefully, the fabric is much better quality by now. But as for me, I won't be buying 100% cotton again.

I haven't bought garments recently, so this is new to me, but wow that would be horrible if true.
