Pizza, Ice cream, & Parents

 

Hanging out with my parents, who are visiting for a few days on their way back to Maryland from Hawaii. Not hiding under the covers depressed, as my previous post might suggest.

Thanks to everyone who gave such great suggestions for managing computer stress! I especially love Michelle Verges’s idea of turning the questions into a meme, and I nominate her as the first tagee!

I’ll post last week’s plastic tally soon. Thanks for putting up with my whining!

A Note about leaving comments: I switched to the LifeFyre comment system because it weeds out the hundreds of spam comments I was getting each day and also allows us to respond to individual comments, to "Like" comments, and to link them to social media if we so desire. But if you do not wish to login via social media, you don't have to. You can comment without logging in! Here's how:

  1. Type your comment in the box.
  2. Click "Post Comment As" button.
  3. When the LiveFyre box pops up, type a name, email address, and optional website address in the fields provided.
  4. Click Next.
  5. LiveFyre will ask you for a user name and password. But if you don't want to register or use a password, you don't have to. Just click "Post as Guest" which is to the left of the black "Finish" button. Your comment will be saved.
  6. Please email me if you have questions or problems. This new system is supposed to make it easier for all of us to converse, not harder.

Hey, has everyone heard about this new movie, called "Saving Grace"? It's about the family of the guy who invented Bakelite, and how miserable they became. It's the curse of plastic!

You are so inspiring! Please keep up the good work, but don't put so much pressure on yourself! I admire your dedication.

Do you change your life around for your parents? I find that when my folks visit we drive a lot, eat at restaurants I would not usually choose, buy kleenex & paper towels, all kinds of stuff. When they were here this winter we even turned up the heat. I'm having problems balancing simple hospitality with feeling like I'm hiding our life to make people more comfortable.
