RootAnnWhen my first run through had me going from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. with no lunch, I realized I needed to cut a lot of stuff out and do things differently. There is only one of me.

SusanCI had the same problem that RootAnn ran into. I'm still nervous that just because I made it fit on paper....

Our car dies and when we go to look for a used car to buy, people look at us funny when I explain I really need a car with a CD player. Why? To play and replay our stash of Great Course audio cds!
quarkSome of the newer cars here don't have a CD player! Really! I was so horrified. They have all the bells and whistles but no CD player. So we bought one that has both a CD player and an MP3 thingy. Can I rip my CDs to MP3? I was not sure about that. We don't have laptops with that capability any more. Our laptops are too cheap, just like our car lol.

mathnerdbuy an external CD drive and plug it into your laptop. then, rip your CDs into MP3s and you can listen on your iPods, phones and car as well: e.g. https://www.amazon.com/SANOXY-External-Combo-CD-RW-Burner/dp/B00LZMPYA8

Prednisone insomnia, ugh.
SadieI'm on a lower dose today so really hoping for sleep. It's nearly 10 and my brain is ramping up though, so it's not looking good :(

melmichiganI've given up. I've been cleaning bookshelves, purging homeschool curriculum for sale, and putting together plans for next year. When all else fails I crawl into bed with a book and call that close enough. I only sleep for an hour or two at a time until I get the dose down. My poor husband doesn't know what to do.
Jul 20 2017 08:05 PM
SadieOh man, I really feel for you melmichigan. Hope you can wean down sooner rather than later.

I have to play Yanni to calm my dog while it's thundering. It's either that or reggae, and we listened to that the last time. I tried some classic rock and he was not having it, lol. Oh well...
quarkYanni! :) My poodle will listen to anything but my dachshund needs Abba or the Great Courses in order to calm down. Aren't dogs fun? :)
