For the ladies...


[spoiler]
I have gone through MANY, MANY brands and styles of sport bras over the years and I must say that Best Form is the most comfortable and supportive that I've ever worn. I don't feel it at all! I've had these about 3 years now, and they are still in great shape. The label has faded, but I think mine is nylon/spandex.

I'm pretty sure this is the style I have: [url="http://www.bestformintimates.com/products/style/5006573"]http://www.bestformintimates.com/products/style/5006573

I guarantee that it is the only one I will be buying the next time I need to replace, which I'm sure won't be for a loooong time! :)

[spoiler]Wow! Those look nice! They look like they are made out of the same material as the Barely There bralettes I wear. I looked at some of them and I may have to get some when I find a job. I really like these styles (I only wear the pullover kind):

I like that they are two-ply. That's the thing I don't like about Barely There--if it gets cold, you've got a problem. :shock:[/spoiler]

Mater,

[spoiler]I wear them 24/7, even while sleeping. They really are a w esome! I'm glad you like them, too. I just found that Walmart doesn't carry these anymore, so I'm wondering where I'd get that style in the future... Hmm...[/spoiler]

[spoiler]Do you have a K-Mart near you? That's where I see Bestform bras. The funny thing is, when I was a teenager, all I wore was Bestform and then they stopped making my favorite style and then I went to Fruit of the Loom, which I buy at Walmart.

[spoiler]Yeah, I have a Kmart, but I looked on their website and didn't see that particular style. [/spoiler]

After I suggested it, I went online to Kmart, too, and didn't see any of the styles mentioned on the website. Too bad there is not an option to buy directly from Bestform. :(

For me there is not such a thing as an official "list", but I have talked it over with the novice responsable.

Since as a postulant we wear normal clothes, we just bring what we have in sense of jeans, skirts, shirts, sweaters.... Later on after receiving the habit you still may use civil clothes if you are going to a doctors appointment, travelling somewhere in a situation where you do not want to be identified as sister, or if you are on holiday, so it is good to have some "decent" clothes. Also shoes, I need brown sandals, but also sneakers and hiking shoes. Later with the habit you can wear t-shirts underneath.

Bible (in your own language and in french) and it seems as if I am allowed to bring my greek new testament and my hebrew old testament and the dictionaries as well.
3 personal books
mp3 player (we are the new generation, it used to be 3 cds/3 tapes!, So I think an mp3 is a big deal!!!)
stationary, diary, pens, cards....
some pictures
For the postulancy we keep our own notebook and can connect it to the internet in a central place, because postulancy and the novitiate are in different parts of the house. Once in the novitiate there is one notebook everbody uses together (but you get your own email account) and you can take a flash drive with your data and pictures.
I may bring my camera, because I enjoy photography.
Shampoo / shavers / toothpaste - we get it from the community.

I think it is good that there is not a thing like a "list", because we are all individuals and have different needs as well. For me photography is something I enjoy and relax at, others enjoy painting....

Though I can not really see which 3 books I should take.... I have a lot of books... Well, still got 10 months to decide ;)

I'd like to bring my cats with me. But I doubt the Sisters would be too happy with that! :kitten: rotfl

The sisters who taught at my elementary school have dogs at their motherhouse, at least they did when I was eight.

The Franciscan sisters who taught/ran my high school wanted to have animals, but because they are gone a lot, they decided it would be wrong to have a pet. One of them (C) wanted fish, but one of the sisters (D) said "C! You'll forget to water the fish!"

I need to write/call the Sisters... I need to find out if I should bring all my current prescription meds with. Also, I have to ask about lotion for my skin (I have Icythyosis, so my skin needs cream/lotion otherwise it cracks and bleeds) as tolietries and soap were not on the list...

I would like to bring my cat with, because I think my mom will be a little upset that she will be in charge of him, even though I was supposed to take my cat with when I moved out. Oops...

The list is so little, but there are so many questions!

But I have 3 cats and they make a lot of noise. One of them cries every morning until someone gets up to feed her. So that's why I would get thrown out. I know what you mean, my Sisters have a dog at their convent.
