It's better to be alone than with the wrong person.
What a great thing you did for that poor lady at the hospital parking lot!!!! God will pay you back 10 fold. I bet the lady hadn't eaten a thing that day either. When I was a Nurse I always made sure that the spouse had food.You would be surprised at all the elderly that stay with their spouse at a hospital go without food because of no money. Nurses observe the spouse also.Have a HEART.
You did a wonderful thing for that old elderly women. It made me wonder if I would do the same if I had the money. Sadly I must admit, I probably wouldn't. You still have insppired me to try and be a better person and do what i can.
May God bless your sweet heart for helping that elderly lady pay for her parking (and other things). Warmed my heart.
Old sayings should remain in the past sometimes - you are not "entitled" to a good woman. You earn her love and trust.
If you don't drink and the dinner is at your house..its your rules...they should not expect you to serve alcohol. I am the same way.
Being healthy and not having debt will make you a better mate if you do find the right man - and hopefully he is doing the same things in hopes of finding you.
It's funny a lot of people love Thanksgiving and dread it at the same time.
When your feel lonely, sick or hurting in any way, just remember that there is always someone worse off than you are.
To the Unventer that has his young wife out working for him.I sure wouldn't brag about it I don't care if you worked 70 years.I was in the same boat as your wife until I was told he was bragging just like you.He was too stupid to keep his mouth shut.It makes you look like a old,old cheapskate.
I'm kinda sad this year; too many family members have to work on Thanksgiving. I guess "doorbuster"sales are becoming the new norm.
If you don't drink, don't buy what they would need for "virgin" drinks. This is your table. Have them bring what they want if they MUST have that on Thanksgiving.
Why on earth was that retired man's vent voted down? I'd be happy to have a man like that to handle the home front while I keep working, since I enjoy it.
I just found out the recipe for homemade peanut butter and powder sugar candy that my husband's Mother made for Christmas 60 years ago.For Thanksgiving during the games I am going to bring all the old fashion candy that he has talked about so many years.I hope he will be surprised.I've worked hard finding the recipes.
I wish more teachers understood how important it is to show affection to their students. My daughter has had teachers like that and she likes school. My son has never had an affectionate teacher and he hates school.
It must going to be a cold winter this year because our horses and cows hair are thicker than I have seen it this early in years.
My 7 year old told me the O-hi-O joke just the other day. Good, clean humor never dies.
Re: the mac and cheese - dry mustard just adds a bit more taste to it. Regular mustard may be okay to substitute, just don't add too much of either one.
You ARE new to cooking if you only know it as "hotdog mustard"...took me back 30 years when I was learning...but you can use it but I would use a little less and taste test it. (BTW its called prepared mustard)
Honey,from personal experience men do not like to be chased,they like to do the chasing.
Do Mac and Cheese recipes use dry mustard due to its color and tang? Regular mustard in M&C sounds kind of gross.
No, you cannot put hog dog mustard in mac&cheese. My recipe doesn't call for dry mustard either but it does use cheddar cheese soup as well as shredded cheese, keeps it moist and yummy.
