  1. Facebook is too intrusive. I have deleted my account a while back and plan to keep it this way. One can never be too careful with social media and online privacy these days ..

    'The day before yesterday', basically the equivalent of the Spanish 'anteayer'

    How to start trusting a colleague/coach again

    I would suggest a little patience. Try to play the detached observer for awhile. After all, you don't know all the details and dynamics of this new environment. And it sometimes happens that the first impression is the wrong one. If, however, after a time of passive observation, you conclude that it's wise to talk, then by all means do so. But I would first wait some time and just try to read people, without getting caught in any office politics or taking any sides.

    Hurricane Florence. Is any of you in the Carolinas?

    I'm watching it live on youtube. I hope everybody is ok!
  5. Any ladies out there fighting procrastination? I was thinking maybe we can use this thread to push each other into exercising. We could post here after we exercised. Anyway, tomorrow I aim at at least 45 min cardio. 🤠 It has to be done.😤

    Picking up people at the side of the road

    Picking up is best if say you are with somebody else in the car and the stranger is alone. Basically he needs to be outnumbered.

    The Paleo Diet

    I am also about 90% paleo. I think it's important psychologically to always have a little room for "bad foods", because otherwise one feels too restricted and tense. It's awkward also in social gatherings. I can't say to friends "no, I won't even taste your chocolate cookies because they don't fit my diet". But it's also wrong to take more than a byte/snack because otherwise you break the plan and might begin to binge eat sweets or whatever. If I find myself craving a little cookie once a week - great. If I find myself craving cookies the next day after I just had one then I refrain myself. Little pleasures are good, but discipline is very important.

    I miss my book collection

    That's great! I didn't know about the feature, I would be good to "have them back" so to speak. Even if I don't reread them, it would be nice to have them on my kindle. I'll investigate that feature and see what I can get for free.

    I miss my book collection

    When me and my husband moved to another country, I had to decide if I carry my books with me or if I give them away. I gave them away My husband bought me a kindle which is very practical, easy to carry, I can switch through different books even if I'm on vacation etc.. But I miss that feeling of having and taking care of a library. Maybe there's a little vanity involved but I don't know. I sometimes think about starting to buy real books again. Anybody else feel the same?

    Swimming

    I swim too. I think it's very important to have an instructor first, it doesn't to be for too long (I had mine for about 2 months) because there are many tips and tricks that are hard to get by learning alone. I almost felt like I had unlearn first whatever clumsy moves I had used up until that point. The instructor corrected my mistakes and I found that very useful.

    Daughter wants her belly button pierced

    Lol I wanted my lower lip pierced when I was a teenager, good thing I got over that quickly! 😬 You can tell her that you need to think about it or something to delay it. This way you 1.don't make her sad/angry and 2. you give her time to lose interest ; because this is the kind of thing that teenagers forget quickly 😁

    New movie - Ephraim's Rescue

    I enjoyed it as well, very good movie.
  17. Woman here. My advice might be bad, but I'll give it a shot anyway, in case you find it useful. Us women are difficult in general, like to complain (without actually needing a solution) and are never satisfied. I guess we were made this way. Why don't you try just ignoring her for a while and just mind your business and seem unaffected? My husband does this to me and to be honest his aloofness saved us multiple times. I get angry and complain, he ignores me, and after a while he cracks a joke like nothing happened. I don't know, maybe I'm minimizing your problem and your wife is actually very difficult, I cannot know for sure. But you might try. I wish you all the best and please put your kids first...
