      PLEASE READ: We are moving the community   02/15/18

      Dear Community friends and family,   After great consideration, we are moving the Grandparents.com community to Facebook Groups effective March 15, 2018.   This wasn’t an easy decision, but we want to bring our communities together and believe the best place to do so is through Facebook’s groups feature. We’re so appreciative of you and the diverse conversations and opinions you have provided over the past 9 years. Your stories and amazing advice have helped so many readers, and have reached thousands of GP.com users. We encourage you to retrieve any information you want to retain as the forum will only be accessible by the admin after March 15, 2018. We’ve created a closed Facebook group called Mothers-in-Law Unplugged where we welcome you to continue the conversations around grandparenting, family, and in-law relationships, and any general topics we discuss here. As the group is closed and each user must be approved, your friends and family on Facebook won’t see any of your activity. Request to join the group here: http://bit.ly/milunplugged Thank you to all of our past and current users. You helped build our community, and we look forward to continuing to interact with you in the Facebook groups. If you have any questions about the groups and privacy, let’s chat about here:   Sincerely,   The Grandparents.com Team

It's going on 3 years and people continue to be there for you and that is a gift considering so many tend to forget as the years go by- You're blessed- Sad, but blessed-

I like to think I'm helping myself by 1) participating in my own life and not waiting for others to come to me 2) recognizing that this is not just my grief, DH was a wonderfully popular local businessman who lived in this town his entire life so his death affected many people, from clients to people he went to kindergarten with...

Sue, overcast & dreary here, but I'm thinking I'll take that over -3....stay warm.

It's warming right up.  It is 12* and the sun is shining.  I'm on my way to the grocery store.  I have to cook for a luncheon tomorrow and I need to make a salad, rolls and a desert.

We were 14 this time and the meal was lovely as was the visiting.  It warmed up from 10* to a sunny 45* and the wind isn't too bad.

Komo, I love your pic...I am always telling hubby that we DO NOT NEED to go to town because we still have milk, bread and toilet paper.

I don't drink milk...however, I have packets of powdered milk and buy aseptically packed boxes of milk (8oz boxes) for cooking. I've cut way back on carbs so try not to keep bread in the house...but have the supplies to make my own should it come to that...I get the Costco pack of TP....lasts forever...bring on the zombie apocalypse....
