My daughter is enrolled in Mommy and Me swim lessons. They are two days a week and 20min each day. The lessons are free. I feel like I should give her instructor a small gift as a token of our appreciation. But I really know nothing about her. She looks young, probably 18. I don't know of she goes to college or even where she lives, so gift cards are kind of hard. Any suggestions?
SO. I graduated from college last year and for a graduation present, my mom told me that I would be receiving a Macbook since my profession would be dealing with photoshop and many other image editing software. I have to go to the library and use my boyfriend's university ID and pw to use photoshop but now he is graduating and we are moving out of town and using my boyfriend's laptop is nice, but I don't want to download a bunch of things onto his computer since it's not mine to begin with. Plus, I would be using a lot of time on his computer which is not fair for him.
Basically, it would be nice if my mom didn't fall through with her word, or at least said something so I wouldn't be left wondering. I would completely understand if she couldn't. I am not making much money and am currently saving to fall back on when we move, so I cannot contribute all of my savings for a Macbook. I have been understanding because she got laid off but was hired again last year making decent money, but not money to suddenly drop $1,000 on, so I have been looking on places like craigslist and there are Macbooks going for decent prices.
How do I go about asking my mom, a year after graduation, if she is still going to purchase one for me? I don't want to be pushy but it did kind of hurt my feelings, mainly because she did not mention anything about it after talking about it for two weeks. The subject kind of just got dropped without any closure.
If you could only bring 5 movies with you to a deserted island, what would those movies be?
I want to make my son a superhero costume for halloween (early, i know). I want one of those one piece leotard/body suit things with either shorts length or full leg length in a bright color. Where can I get one in a toddler size? If I search leotards, I get all the girl cut ones and if I search bodysuit get the infant bodysuit/onesie. Is there a specific name for those things?

I need some advice.
My dad's mother passed away a few weeks ago. We weren't close and her death hasn't affected me at all, but my dad is pretty torn up about it. I'm very sad for him. The problem is, though, that he keeps trying to give me all her stuff. I've accepted some sentimental things because I felt like it was the right thing to do, but he keeps trying to push things I will never need, will never have any use for, and have no sentimental value to anyone. They're things like duffel bags, old purses, reusable grocery bags... things that will just collect dust.
How do I keep saying no without hurting his feelings? He is starting to get a little upset, but frankly, I have no room for this stuff and it's better off being donated. I know the end-game is to donate what's not going to be used, but I kind of want to skip the "do you need/want X" step, because I don't.
What is the most exotic place you've visited?
What was the worst? and why?
I'm going to see my godchildren for the first time in far too long. They're four and five, and I want to bring them something, but I don't want to just fill their lives with cheap plastic. I want to give them something meaningful. I was thinking books, but I don't know what books they own. What should I give them? Are there any kids' books for those ages that they probably don't have that would be appropriate for an atheist godparent to give a Christian godchild? Or any non-book suggestions?
I want to buy some new songs from iTunes to celebrate losing some weight. I like fun, pop music for working out: Party in the USA, Thrift Shop, Ice Ice Baby (and other 90s hits!). What songs would you buy for your workout playlist?
My step mom works for hampton. She gave me a pass for any hilton-owned company at the employee rate. I would like to do something with my boyfriend for around our one year anniversary which is in august. I live too close to Chicago to spend a night there (it has to be 40 miles away).
We are VERY limited on funds but I was thinking traveling early for random hikes, random small meals, more exploration, etc. Then have anything to eat at that point and enjoy the rest of the night together.
continental breakfast, small hike, and head home.
Basically enjoy the outdoors but I'm not sure of some good hikes to go on around starved rock? Could also go any other route for suggestions. I would love to surprise my boyfriend with a fun trip like this.
Thank you in advance
does anyone here watch the tv show 'the wire'? it's meant to be really good apparently but i couldn't get past the first episode. it looks like just another boring crime show, and i usually love those.
