  1. Cookie got a bath and absolutely did not like it and the stress wore her out completely. She just sorta passed out before I could even finish drying her off. Chip did not care at all about her plight.

  2. Would anyone like to join me in praying for peace over the next month? Please check in daily or whenever you are able. "Where two or three are gathered together in my name, there I am in the midst of them." All are welcome. I'll start. Father God, we do not as a nation deserve your blessing. We ask that in your abundance of mercy you preserve peace in our land. ETA: Don't feel you need to be formal. Just "praying" or whatever you want to say will be wonderful and appreciated.

  3. I can't imagine doing math with anything other than my accountant doing the calculations himself, by hand. It's the old fashioned way 😉

  4. Abc (us) Chris Christie has been released from the hospital following COVID-19 diagnosis: "I want to thank the extraordinary doctors & nurses who cared for me for the last week... I will have more to say about all of this next week” I thought I was easier to start a new thread than dig up an old one but I know some where worried about him so they’d be happy to know.

  9. I told my husband about your sign being stolen and he said, "It was stolen by the donkey!" and then my son said, "Yeah, he's such an @ss." DH then said, "He's such a COWard." The puns never stop here.🙄

  20. Rest in Peace, Xena. (Since this the death of an alter ego it does not violate the rules as set forth by the former hawk.) But don't worry, Xena is like a cat. She will rise (eventually) to fight another day.

  21. You realize I normally clean on Saturdays, and instead I'm sitting here researching calculators. This is ridiculous! Making Math Great Again, the MMGA we can all agree on.

  22. You may have already done this since I know that you were very careful about all illnesses. But I would put getting flu shots as a priority for the entire extended family: your FIL, your Dh's siblings and families as well as your own nuclear family. The reasoning behind this is to vaccinate for what you can so that at least you are cutting down the fall/winter viruses that can attack besides just COVID19. Bike riding is very low risk in my opinion. So is walking outside where there are good air currents. Could your hockey loving son get some rink time when the rink is almost em

  24. We are basically being 100% cautious. However, I'm keeping excellent track of the risks, so I call tell them to you with no judgment. Here's what seems to be true right now: a) Most spread seems to occurs in crowded environments indoors. There seems to be limited outdoor risk, except with prolonged close contact. b) Most people apparently don't spread the virus. So this is a game of rolling a 1000-sided die with ONE bad side many times. That means that lots of decisions won't lead to badness until they do. You can't assume that something is safe because it was fine one time.

  26. Good Morning! Happy Saturday! I slept in. I still have the remnants of a migraine. Things to try to get done today: putting away summer clothes sorting fall/winter clothes (what fits, what doesn't) grading! lots of grading piled up from the weeks I was planning science labs planning a writing course for dd14 cleaning up the house a bit

  27. I cancelled my piano lessons on election day because my center is a polling site (for that day only), and I just plain don't want my kids in the midst of what might be pretty volatile. I'm using COVID as an excuse, but voting is at the other end of the building with separate entrances, and they will have the windows open in that section (while my county has a mask ordinance, and as a city building, my center had a required masking policy even before the county ordinance, they cannot require it for voting), So the increased COVID risk on my side of the building is probably minimal. But I just p

  28. And yet that's where we're at. The support for white supremacy terrorists among LEOs is the thing about this that worries me the most, I think. I'm positive that sheriff is far from alone. It's one reason we desperately need some police reform.

  29. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/10/07/us/lyon-gardiner-tyler-jr-dead.html Grandson of President Tyler, 10th president of the US dies at age 95. As of 2012, his life, his father's life, and his grandfather's life overlapped to include 222 years of American History. His brother is still alive, so this 3-generation time span is now at around 230 years and counting.

  31. I also want to mention that.........this is a thing. Your grief is very fresh and right now, it's ok to not have all the answers. It's ok to take time to just breath. Just do what works right now. And what works today, might not be what works tomorrow.....and that's ok.

  32. I vacuumed. Sort of. Except my vacuum was spewing dirt almost as quickly as picking it up. So, it might be clogged. And we might have blown a fuse. Ds wisely asked me what I have learned from this experience. Never vacuum again? 🤣

  34. Good morning! Extra coffee over here if anyone needs some. Yesterday we did a huge push toward getting the major cleaning done, so today we're going to organize all the cupboards and maybe get all the boxes finally unpacked! I'm also picking up the grocery order. If all goes well, I'm hoping to break out the school books and finish planning our year, so we can start school soon!

  36. Mr Toto brought bacon, egg and cheese on a hard roll. A yummy and infrequent treat. Once I eat, I'm waking up dd, letting her wake up a little bit then going through the stuff in her room with her, hopefully getting rid of some stuff, pulling down her shelves, replacing them with cubes. Then I'm taking one section of shelves to the storage unit (others are going in garage), dropping off anything getting donated, and working at the science center for a while. I need to do my monthly payroll taxes.

  41. That sounds like a perfectly normal mental state for what you've been through; clearly it's not so good for the kids, but it's a normal, natural response. I'm just saying that "I'm OK" is an important part of making it through each day, when you have to, then, do things outside your comfort zone, like unwrap the bubble wrap. ❤️

  42. Summer clothes are bagged up. Fall/winter clothes are in a huge pile to be washed. The washing is not my job. I do need to buy a few things, mostly pajamas as I don't foresee us needing many real clothes for a while... There were some cute summer dresses that dd10 would have liked to have worn to church this summer, but, alas, we don't get dressed up for facebook church.

  43. @PeterPan My accountant has never been great at intuiting how I'd like the books done. I think his neurodiversity completely prevents him from picking up the usual clues. I long ago developed the habit of exaggerating any, ah, expressions of approval while he's busy calculating. It took some time, but eventually my preference for, say, addition became clear. Once he mastered addition, exaggerated expressions anytime he ventured nearer to multiplication, and so on. At this point in time, he's much more comfortable discussing it, so I can be more straightforward. But in those early years, this

  44. Yes, I will pray! God, I know you love every single person on this planet, and desire the very best for everyone. Help us to not see people as our enemy, but all the things that bring about hate, poverty, fear, neglect, loneliness, deceitfulness, and so on. Help us be people of loving kindness who can cross barriers and help bring peace.

  45. Morning. Darn I gave up too early and Lynn got the booya. Maybe next time. I'm up and waiting for dh to come back from wherever he went. He left a note saying he's bringing back breakfast. He also brought all the cubes in from my car. I mentioned to him last night that I needed his help but I would have helped too.

  47. They are absolutely on one side, the side of strongman, authoritarian leaders. They are not anarchists. They hate women and gays, and ethnic and religious minorities to a large extent. They explicitly support POTUS and are rallying to his side according to national intelligence agencies. They will attack/kill LEOs to advance their larger goals of starting a civil war. They have, as the indictment and media reports indicate, positive ties to LEOs. The only reason the informant came forward is that killing LEOs was, for him, a bridge too far.

  48. Oh my god, we really *are* revisiting all the old threads! Lol! The last time this question was asked (that I know of), one poster was absolutely amazed to learn that there were people who really and truly only did the math by hand. She thought there was really no way to expect answers before the sun went down if you didn’t use the technology. IME, it could be literally better, not merely more efficient.

  49. I have a neighbor who has big Trump flags he posts on his fence (which is pretty brave in my area) and he takes them down every night so they don't get stolen. I don't get it. Let people support their candidate either way. Removing their signs isn't going to make a bit of difference in how they vote! Just wondering, but do your cattle vote?😂
