    I can’t believe that it took me so long to figure out what is wrong with me. I accidentally took my morning meds at bedtime (because I had just filled my pill boxes). I realized right away and took my evening pills too minus duplicates that I take morning and night. But in the morning pills was a thyroid pill and I have been practically buzzing for the past two hours.
  3. Today
  4. I'm sorry! TJ's tea tree shampoo and conditioner are the only things I've found that got rid of my dandruff. That better not go too! There are several tea tree bar soaps with good reviews on Amazon. Nothing priced as well as TJ's though. 😞
  5. I know I HAD this information, but I can no longer find it. After what chapter in AOPS Algebra can we start alternating with AOPS Geometry? I thought the info was on the AOPS website, but if it was, I can no longer find it!

    if you use dishrags instead of sponges

    I use the Swedish dishcloth, they are like flat sponges. You can run them through the dishwasher or launder them with towels. They don't smell.

    I change them out every day. They hang on the side of the big metal wire basket in the porch with dh's work clothes. Those get washed every other day, so they don't mildew.

    Students currently studying abroad?

    My ds is abroad in Massachusetts. 🙂 He is doing well and is not homesick. He calls every day and plays video games with his brother on Saturdays, so he is just not as far away as he would have been in a previous generation. He is finding that homeschooling has been a serious plus. He can manage his time better than most of his peers, and he knows how to study and learn independently. He has made some really great friends and is finally surrounded by peers. Overall, a really great win, and a serious relief for this mama who was not sure if he could actually handle it. Ruth in NZ
  14. I miss our conversations, Rose. I too have posted less here as years have gone by. Although I read every day, I feel that the longer I homeschool, the less I know and the less certain I am about advising others. I am so glad that your dd's writing is taking off, that is just so amazing and encouraging. Good luck to you, mamma, as you guys climb the large cliff that is Lyme recovery.

  16. I agree they are a bit desperate. This job was posted in late July, posting closed in mid August and they say it will take me about 2 months to get started. That is 5 months from original posting....for a sought after job! If I turn it down, they have to start over again with posting. I am getting the job due to extremely strong reference from someone the manager holds in very high regard but my experience is part of why I got the reference I did! LOL

    This thread reminds me I need new dishcloths soon. Mine have shrunk and shrunk until they are now super thick and super dense and take forever to dry. They are so stiff you can’t fold them.

    I’ve had this problem as well. I’ve had a couple of different solutions - one is to hang them on a laundry Airer to dry in the laundry. I can’t remember why I stopped, I suspect because the laundry is tiny. Current solution is a bucket of oxyclean and water that I chuck them in. This works as long as I wash them twice a week - any longer than that and it goes feral. I guess even if you chuck the occasional one that have mildew it’s probably better for the environment and your wallet than using fully disposable stuff. As long as you don’t put them in the laundry basket with clothes because that can get expensive.
  20. I got the full set of anodized, nonstick cookware from Sam's Club, and it's marvelous. Heavy duty aluminum heats evenly. Nonstick coating is durable. The whole 15 piece set is only $150. I'm getting them for my son. https://www.samsclub.com/sams/15pc-ha-set-dsv-in-club-872880/prod18670055.ip?xid=plp_product_1_1

    What kind of dish cloths do you use to dry so quickly? Mine tend to stay damp. Or maybe it’s the kid stage we are in means more spills.
  23. they make silicone handle holders in different sizes. they even make them for the handles that barely stick out past the pan. there are a lot of different cuisinart lines. most manufacturers make multiple lines - they are not created equal. I got the cusinart because I liked the diameter of the 3qt. and considering what I cook in it, I didn't feel I could justify the cost of an AC D5 (my favorite cookware ever). - their 3qt is the same diameter at their 4qt. it has it's uses . . . but I prefer a narrower 3qt. I spent days researching. one site did very involved tests that found a difference in performance between the AC (even heating) and the "triplys" - but most people will not be able to tell the difference. the thicknesses of the aluminum core and the stainless outside was the same - also there is one tramontina line (not sure which) which is a comparable triply - those were it in this price range. the other brands with a 'triply' - aren't as thick.

    if you use dishrags instead of sponges

    I use dishcloths, no sponges. I change the cloth frequently, but I have a suction cup metal basket holder thingy attached to the inside wall of my sink, and I hang the dishcloth there in between uses, until I’m ready to change it. Then I wring it out and put it in a plastic basket (that sits in a plastic dishpan — the mesh of the basket lets it air a bit but the dishpan means nothing leaks in my cabinet) in the sink cabinet. Once a day, a kiddo takes the plastic basket and empties it into an identical one on top of the dryer. When that basket is full or I’m about out of cloths, about twice a week, I run the load from the top of the dryer, on hot, with maybe a couple of drops of vanilla oil added.
  25. How were you able to catch on then if the apps or programs you're using don't catch it?! That is crazy!
  26. This is exactly what I need to quantify. I need to make sure when I talk to them about experience, I make sure they see the value in what I have to offer.
