Weight Range

Because I am of small stature, I choose to stay within a three pound range (i.e. 120-123 lbs.) When my weight creeps toward the upper end, I know it's time to get back on track - before I go crazy gaining weight. I had planned to have a five pound range, but I fine-tuned it to three. Works for me.

Photograph It!

For seasonal practices, photograph the "old" way as a record of what to do or not to do in the future. For example, in gardening you will have a future reference of what you like and don't like about your landscaping. Likewise, holiday decorations...furniture arrangements...outfits with accessories...

Hairballs

One of our cats has terrible hairball issues. We've tried all the normal remedies, to no avail.

The vet told us to try using 1/4 tsp of Miralax mixed with canned food in hopes of making the hair come out the other end.
