    Reading your response of resilience and persevering during a difficult with grace made me smile. You're right, the pandemic wasn't/hasn't been easy on all of us but I'm glad the school stepped up to help you teach so many. Teachers and Nurses are the salt of the earth, in my opinion. Thank you...

Also, each couple can decide what that means to them. Can't say it always worked but it's not all bad. I am currently doing a sort of hybrid...

    Menopause talks

    I mean...the thread is aptly labeled. If you didn't wanna know, why click? Some have no one else to talk to about these things and we all need someone to talk to at times.

    Foodie?
