I cannot for the life of me understand why, except maybe it took a little more effort and money. Anyone have a clue whether there would be a shut-off valve somewhere else, other than the main water line at the meter?
can you follow the pipe at all? i know i have a shut off valve in the basement.

I read that. How do you follow a pipe from under the kitchen sink? Also, I don't have a basement.

Cindy, there should be one somewhere. Ours in this area are right at the front of the house, like just a bit away from the front door. You can't miss it, pipes sticking out of the ground with a valve or two.

I've fixed various plumbing around my house and YouTube videos were invaluable in helping me with the details. Good luck!

Colleen, you said it exactly. I get people talking about themselves. Most times they never even realize I haven't shared much, and I share enough, I think, not to seem secretive, but really no details. It's amazing how most people can talk and talk about themselves and never even ask, "and you?"

My main shutoff is always right near the water heater, inside the house.

Found the shut-off valves! In my laundry room. I'm going to have to learn more about home repair, since I am the only one inclined to do anything around here.

Do you have Home Depot or Lowe's? Ours give free classes on how to do stuff. I've never been, but would if I needed to learn something specific.

I still need a smaller Allen wrench, but will get one soon. Probably from the dollar store.

Cindy, I agree that it is extremely loud in the cinema theaters these days!

Epic fail on fixing the sink. Got bf involved, and he couldn't get the thing back on tight, and now it's completely unusable.

I know!!!! I recall the same with Gravity, but I didn't care for it. I wanted to leave but DW probably wouldn't have appreciated that...

Got it put back together, and also finally found the website for the manufacturer with detailed instructions lol. It's a part that we didn't even get. I also have a lifetime warranty, so the manufacturer should send the parts for free. The leak is less pronounced now, and hopefully will be okay until we get the parts.

I hear you guys. People thing I'm gregarious and outgoing, and I am sometimes. But I think of myself as a bit shy, and can just as easily not talk to anyone at a party or social event. In school, I'd often spend parts of the "mixer" parties sitting on the stairs. It would usually lead to 1 person coming over to talk to me, then another, and then I'd be ok with a little group.

I still don't understand how it wound up in my vocation/job. I always tell people I loathe public speaking... Yet every year for the last 3 yrs I've been asked to present at my company's user group event.

I'll share my main tip with you (validated by a therapist friend): fake it till you make it.

It's that whole thing where you smile till it becomes a real smile? I just tell myself I OWN the room I'm presenting in, like it's my classroom of 16 (but it's a ballroom of 300).
Seems to work, for me.
For the social aspect, some of my habits (now) were techniques I learned when I was the "rush" chairman (now called "recruitment), for my sorority. I learned some ice breaker/conversation starters, and how to get out of a conversation too.

Here's the best: 1) ask the person about something nifty on them-- glasses, ring, jacket, whatever. Oh, those are pretty X... Where are they from?

To get out of a situation, say you're going for a glass of water or whatever (or a refill). Ask if you can get anyone in your little group anything... If you do, just drop it off, and say, I'll leave you to it, I'm going to check on X. Or, I'm going to mingle a bit.

Seems to work for me, 20yrs later .

Cindy on the leak! I love that you put your mind to it and made it happen!

I had a minor victory, in that while we were out today, I had the idea to get the art from Disney that we needed frames for, brought it with us, and got nice DIY frames for all 4 pieces. AND put them in the frames as soon as we got home, so it wasn't another project waiting around.

I lost my dd energy just before hanging them though

I bought the 150 mg, so that's what I'm doing. Didn't really notice any difference today, maybe it takes a while to start working.

Personally I think it takes at least a week of taking it everyday to start seeing or feeling any difference.

Well, the sink isn't fixed yet, and I did get help from bf, so I can't take full credit. However, I did learn what the problem is exactly, and will be able to fix it (as soon as I get the parts). Thanks for the kudos.

Gah, I know it's Winter and the floods complicate matters but no kayaking on Sunday or today (Monday) as they've been cancelled and my trainer can't make Tuesday's gym session. Gah. I need my activities - particularly when everything else is so frantic.

Good morning (or afternoon/evening depending where you are)!

I'm off work today and accompanying DH to two doctor appointments. We'll have lunch out at a restaurant. Sometimes eating out on an UD seems as challenging as doing it on a DD....anyone else ever feel that way? When I say challenging, I mean too many things to think about (where to go, what to have, planning cals for the remainder of the day). Some days I feel like all I ever do is think about food and eating.

Hope everyone has an easy day!

I always opt for a steak and steamed veggies and I can almost always count on that being below 600 calories and for me it is very satisfying and most places have steak on the menu. Also salmon and steamed veggies, another good option.

If you know where you are going, research the menu ahead of time online. Doing this saves me a lot of time and prevents unwise last minute choices.

Whatever you decided on for you lunch out I hope it was lovely, eating out with DH is my favourite thing. Hope he is okay.

I am certainly one who used to fake it but it is now second nature to me. I can work a room with the best of them.

Good workout this morning then I got home and fancied eating, unusual for me at mid day. But there was some great bread and a small fillet of smoked mackerel with my name on them. Very satisfied now.

Sorry your kyaking has been cancelled Slow.

Lemontini I wouldn't expect the ptero to work instantly, but you will feel the benefits soon I am sure.

I was really hoping to be back in Onederland by now but I seem to be bouncing back and forth between the same two UD and DD weights.

I'm hoping it's bloat from the antibiotics. Today is the last day on those, though it will probably take a few days to build back up the gut bacteria.

Another possible factor is that my oldest son has been home from college for the last three weeks. Having him home has kind of thrown off the normal dinner routine as he was wanting to eat his favorites as he was completely sick of the cafeteria food. We took him back to school yesterday. I was glad to have him home but I think all of us are ready for a normal routine again.

My daughter arrived at my house last night sick, and this morning tested positive for the flu, and then after so did her mom and brother. I'm not sure why but we never got our flu shots this year! I'm keeping my distance, as much as I can, and hopefully that plus my natural tendency to never get sick will keep me from getting it. Crossing my fingers!

ditto!

I'm feeling rather low energy today... a little head-foggy. Not sure why. I don't think I have any illness or infection (which I've been wondering about). No fever, just a little stuffed up when I get up in the morning.

I have a good meal day planned, but I agree with Mary Ellen, that I feel like I'm always thinking about food, planning, etc. I think I have to though, to be successful.

If I don't plan, and just eat whatever, I don't do as well. That's both UD and DD.

I do think I need to plan for a LC snack after dinner again, like I used to. Yesterday's DD was rough, I felt like I had a blood sugar crash at the end of the night, and wound up snacking to try to feel better (weak, dizzy, sort of nauseated )
************

Ok, I want to focus on something positive-- my indoor herb garden that was part of the kitchen reno seems to be going well. I'm using good sized basil leaves every other day, and trying to get them to fill out (they're a bit tall, not as bushy as I want them to be). But the flavor is good!

I have 1 pot of chives, they look like little tufts of grass. I cut them and they keep growing! Love it

This is with less-than-ideal lighting (2 LED bulbs running off a timer-powerbar). But they're thriving, so it can't be that bad.
imagine <-- that with green thumbs!
