• Why has my kitten become so sleepy?

    I brought home a 6 month old kitty last week to save her from the shelter. At first she was very scared of her surroundings but she came around and has been playing with the toys I bought her. But today, a week after I brought her home, she has slept all day. She hasn't eaten today and she won't play. She isn't running a temperature, or... show more
    I brought home a 6 month old kitty last week to save her from the shelter. At first she was very scared of her surroundings but she came around and has been playing with the toys I bought her. But today, a week after I brought her home, she has slept all day. She hasn't eaten today and she won't play. She isn't running a temperature, or has any visible symptoms of illness aside from lethargy and no appetite. Is she just recovering from the stress of her move, is she just sleeping like kitties do, or should I be more worried. It was just strange to see her go from playful and jumping on the curtains to just sleeping all the time. She is responsive to my love and purrs whenever I pet her.

  • How to cover beads with spray acrylic evenly?

    I make paper beads and I seal them with Mod Podge, but to eliminate tackiness I want to use a spray acrylic sealer. Since this isn't a flat surface, what are some suggestions for getting the spray on the beads evenly? I see people saying they use spray sealer on beads but they don't say how.

  • How do I keep Mod Podge from getting tacky?

    I make paper beads and like to seal them with Mod Podge. Even after a while on the drying rack, they will still get stuck together when I store them. How can I prevent this? Or should I switch to a different sealer?

    After a very long, and perhaps still ongoing, battle with matters of faith, I feel that the teachings and practices are the most in line with how I feel I should be. I was raised a fundamentalist Pentecostal and then became Catholic in college. Now, at 27, while I believe Jesus was a person, I can no longer accept his divinity. I believe he was a man with right thought and speech. And there are many others like him, including the Buddha who preceded him. However, I still believe in a higher power that I can only describe as a "God", who is a creator (in the sense of Deism; I'm a geologist so I accept science above all) Can I combine a belief in a God with following a Buddhist path?

But I feel I am not getting a good cardio workout at the daily session. The instructor makes sure I take it slow to avoid injury. What is something I could add to my day that is low impact, but gives me the cardio I need?
