  1. Thank you, everyone. It is kind of fun! Sometimes I don't think my face is wide enough to hold all this grin. :D Actually, they've spent most of their time talking about just this very thing. It isn't either/or -- so I'm pretty happy about that. :001_smile: On the one hand, I understand it, because 'round here we definitely have our share of homeschoolers who were home, but not schooled. As a matter of fact, my neighbors are sending their kids back to PS this fall after having them home for almost a year and a half on "vacation." But, in my limited experience,
  2. Thank you, Ladies! I can't believe I forgot the best part -- the big smile and bear hug I got when he found out his test results, and the "Thanks for homeschooling me, Mom!" :lol: Congrads on the new grandson, Polly!
  3. A lot of really kewl things have happened the last couple of months, and I thought of these boards. So here I am to brag on my son and thank those who were so helpful. My husband and I were just talking today about how homeschooling my son was the absolute best decision we ever made, and now we are reaping the rewards in a big way. I'm getting a lot of pats on the back from friends and family for doing such a good job, but it definitely wouldn't have been possible but for all the information and feedback here. This was my only resource for learning about how to do things and what was avail
  4. You guys are so nice. It's been an absolutely *awful* week -- and only got worse today. Just wanted you to know your posts meant a lot to me. Thank you.
  5. I'm also wondering, with all those crowds, what, exactly, will the little ones see besides a bunch of butts?
  6. I'm having trouble with it, too -- and now I've read the other posts, so I can't play. Now, if we were talking cash, I know what I would say. :D
  7. I understand your reluctance. I wouldn't want to have to deal with all of that either. That's why, when we lived near San Francisco, we stayed home and watched the football games on TV. Better seats and no traffic. :001_smile:
  8. That about sums up my thinking on it, too. Ridiculous. There is foolishness everywhere -- like the time . . . Oh, never mind. :lol: But this whole thing just makes no sense at all, and for them to get snarky with Joanne is just icing on the cake. "Anywhere else" is right.
  9. Thank you, Peela -- I wanted to ask the same thing but couldn't figure out how, and then forgot. I don't understand how this diet could be unhealthy for dogs since that's what they were eating before "dog chow." I was actually going to try to find out when bagged dog food first started being manufactured but, like I said -- I forgot.
  10. I think you've got a great idea, except for stocking the fridge. My son wouldn't mind scarfing down on that stuff one bit, and probably wouldn't even notice I wasn't cooking. Put stuff in there that they have to cook -- and not nuke 'ems, either -- and that might get their attention. I'm having a similar issue here right now and I'm 'bout ready to throw him out. He did something last night that just floored me -- and when I was upset I basically got, "Well, there's nothing I can do about it now." So I'm probably not the one to be answering this thread, because at this point I'm
  11. I made mine with the food processor in just a few minutes. Time is money for me, too, but I was also looking to solve some stinky problems -- which it did.
  12. I haven't had any problem, so far -- and actually old rags that i thought were stained forever are getting cleaner. BUT I put a load in the washer around lunch time and just let it soak until the next morning, when I wash it. So that's probably why I don't have any problem with the powder dissolving, though I use cold water. I'm also using vinegar for fabric softener and a spray on spot treatment (I'm too lazy to go look at the bottle to see what kind it is). I'm very, very happy. The old thread about stinky towels as soon as they got wet set me to experimenting, because I had the
  13. That's the recipe I use, but with Ivory soap instead of Fels Naptha. I made a batch the beginning of November and still have over half of it. I love it.
