It is FINALLY warm by me Laughing

1. Do you have allergies to pollen? What are your symptoms?

2. Did you do anything fun for Mother's Day?

3. When it is humid, does your hair go straight or frizz up?

. There are many good teachers you are very shy and don't like being on stage but they learn to do it.  And even after many years of doing it fairly well, there is always something new to learn.

That's great. That is not me and that is why I am not in the type of profession that I have to speak with people or sell people things. Shrug.

There are many different types of plans with verizon now. We have heard about the others and like the one we have now. There is no other service that we would switch to so I can see others going a month to month basis if they wanted to switch.

Ok, keep telling yourself that then. I did for so many years. lol

Uhm, I used to have expensive sunglasses, so I do actually know the difference, which is 0.

I can't stand bulk when working out, especially when running.  The bulk of the clothes themselves will bother me, much less the bulk of the items in the pockets.  The leaner/cleaner the better for me.

but I do think it makes for a better relationship to try and find something in that activity that you can bond about and with and have those inside jokes for years. Rolls relationship with her dd always sounds like it was forced.

You do not need to have it as a priority that the parent have fun in order for what you describe to happen. For example, my kid obviously took to sewing and designing because of me and the things we did together around that. I enjoy sewing, but when I sewed with my kid the priority was that SHE find it enjoyable and learn as a result. That was often really hard (because she would get frustrated) for me, but I managed anyway, by focusing on the objective.

Likewise with reading aloud, for example. I read Harry Potter to her and LOTR, even though I did not enjoy either very much. SHE enjoyed it, however, and learned a great deal in the process. At 21, she still asks me to read to her sometimes, so obviously she did not find all that dreadful.

That is my number one priority when buying exercise shorts, pockets big enough to carry my phone and keys.  I do have a few pair of pants with no pockets but if it is cool enough to wear them then I am also wearing a jacket that takes care of the pocket issue.

in a pocket while running further neccesitates an otterbox.   I would have a very hard time running with a phone in my pocket; shoot, none of my running pants have pockets big enough for a phone.

if your priority is not to have fun. 

The operative word there is IF. I never said that was my objective.
