    I met a stranger yesterday at the laundromat. She asked if my dryer broke since she saw my wet laundry in baskets. I said it did and she goes on to tell me her house caught on fire a few months back and her machines burned down (the reason why she was there) We talked about her home. We talked about my kids. When I was leaving she hands me a $10 bill. She told me to take it and use it for my next trip to the laundromat. I was speechless. I refused the money and she insisted saying she was going away because she was in the Army and she knows the struggles mom's go through. I have been going through a few things and her act of kindness touched my soul. I accepted the money and thanked her and wished her luck in her journey. I sat in my car and cried. Someone who was also struggling felt the need to reach out..When you think you've lost faith, here comes someone to show you to keep hoping. We need more people like her in this world.

    Amazing. Thanks for sharing, K. 💛

    I apologize for saying that cats are worthless and have no lifesaving skills; I stand corrected.

    although, to be fair..... all it did was save another cat, and I'm not sure how I feel about that.

    I have a cold... congestion upon waking up and very mild after. The worst part is I constantly feel like I'm going to sneeze..

    My PSA for the day. It may be too early to say for sure but I’m really loving the $5 version on the right and I’ve been using the almost $50 version on the left for a few years now. I’m not calling it a dupe but a great alternative perhaps.

    Dad has an MRI to track how his Parkinsonism has progressed over a year. I'm not expecting good news. I'm telling myself it is what it is, there's nothing I can do to change the course of this disease so I just need to accept what comes, and not lose my head.

    My dad was diagnosed with Parkinson's many years ago. Don't be scared many of the symptoms can be managed with good meds. Dad has lived a good life and honestly Parkinson's has impacted it but not too profoundly. He has a stiff kind of walk and difficulty swallowing sometimes.
    I'm not trying to minimise what is a serious disease, some have mild symptoms some not. I'm just saying.. dont lose your head 🙂

    Thanks. I'm glad to hear your dad is doing well! Dad was diagnosed with CBD Parkinsonism last year which is both resistant to medication, and typically terminal within 8yrs. He is on medication anyways, weren't He seems to have developed increased issues swallowing and communicating but his spirits are good!

    I'm sorry 😔 Its good that his spirits are up though..
    Many meds were trial and error for us. I hope they find some that suit your dad.
    Tbh my dad was diagnosed so long ago I can't remember what sort it is, we just say Parkinson's.
    Best wishes to you and your dad 🙂

    @MelG7777 I found my new bumper sticker! At first I thought it was a dirty picture and then I saw he’s fighting the empty indicator! I busted out laughing because the universe is sending me a sign. Fill your gas tank momma! Lolol. olk6zpudawk5.jpeg

    This is me! I've become such a rebel now that my gas tank tells me how many kms to empty... my worst one yet is pulling into the station with 6kms left in my tank! hahah

    It’s really true that brown rice is more filling than white rice and sates the appetite longer. It’s pretty darn good actually.

    I don’t mind brown rice either .. Panda Express offers it here in lieu of fried ..

    I found out today that, with the exception of one woman who has already read 50 books since the start of the year, nobody I work with reads.

    Even the former and current English majors hadn’t read Huckleberry Finn, The Awakening, The Hobbit, Lolita, Catcher in the Rye, The Jungle. They know what wiki has to say about some of them and they’ve watched excerpts of film adaptations of course so I’m sure it’s fine.

    That is a bit shocking, seriously.

    It makes me glad we had a literature rich curriculum when I homeschooled.

    It also makes me think I need to add those books to our family read aloud canon
