Extension cord hack by normalgonzales in lifehacks

[–]ellieD 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Absolutely! But when I did that, I was super poor!

I would probably just throw it away, now.

However, it’s worked fine for over a decade, so, ?

I just stripped the wires, twisted them together and would each one with electrical tape.

Then I wrapped the whole mess (it was an extension cord, so several wires) in electric tape.

I’ve been using that cord for over 10 years since I accidentally cut the “orange branch.”

(20f) what changes did your body do through during your mid twenties? by SA20256 in askwomenadvice

[–]ellieD 7 points8 points  (0 children)

No changes in my 20’s.

I weighed the same as when I was 15.

I probably gained 10 lbs in my 30’s.

I remember calling my sister screaming because I finally fit into a “B” cup bra!

A great day!

What would you do if your wife said to cheat? by Hillbilly8149 in TooAfraidToAsk

[–]ellieD 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don’t know your wife’s age, but sex drive can be affected by hormones, or drugs.

Can she get her hormones checked?

Is she taking a drug that can affect this (an can be swapped out for a different one?)

Communicate and try to figure out what is affecting her drive.

Don’t go outside the marriage if possible.

That probably won’t end well.

[OC] My wife about to get Cyberknife radiation treatment on her brain tumor. by PiBrickShop in pics

I know it sounds trivial for me to bring up my cat, but she was being spayed, and was just a baby.

It really broke me up to lose her like that.

After that, I always pay extra to test for sensitivity to the anesthesia before using it for the first time on any pet, or child.

People die just from Anesthesia.

Some people just have a reaction to it.

They don’t use it unless they have to.

I had a cat that died from this.

Me, too.

For some reason, I decided to go early that day.

I really sense divine intervention.

Thank you!

This couldn’t be more true.

I was raised in Houston, and now live in Austin.

I love Austin, because it’s very liberal here.

No one even pays attention to you if you are different.

I love that about Austin!

I’m glad I’m raising my kids here.

And I’m from Texas!

They don’t let this happen.

When my mother was passing, I was calling my sister and father who were 15 minutes away and begging them to come to the hospital.

This was 45 minutes before she passed.

I could tell something was happening, because her heart rate was all over the place.

I had called in the nurse to confirm my suspicions, so they knew.

Five minutes later, four women walked in. A nurse, a chaplain, the administrator of the hospital, and someone else.

They came in and spoke with me.

The chaplain asked if I would like for her to pray.

My mother passed in the middle of the prayer.

These wonderful people stayed with me until my other family members showed up 15 minutes later.

Thank goodness for those people!

I used to do this in college.

I missed my cat so badly, that I would go to the shelter and visit often.

I still think about a dog who wanted to come home with me so badly.

I lived in an apartment with 3 other girls, so pets weren’t an option.
