  1. My crown was put on in April. I am still afraid to chew on it! I am so worried it will fall out. It doesn't hurt, but my gum is really sensitive around it. My dentist told me that was normal for up to a year. It's not painful, just a little tender.
  2. My 5'3 daughter wears an 8. Age 14 My 4'11 son wears a men's 8. Age 12 My 4'6 daughter wears a 4. Age 9 Im 5'2 and wear an 8.
  3. Wow thanks for all these opinions! I definitely do not agree religiously. And we do not conform to anything! I just loved the emphasis on nature and beauty, but think we will stick with our Charlotte Mason style, which emulates the same ideas.
  4. Could anyone explain this to me? I've been researching it and am intrigued by it. Anyone use this method?
  5. I always buy expensive shoes. They last longer and are better for your feet. For matters alot too, so I don't buy too big for growing room, nor so I buy too tight. My grandmother instilled this in me. My parents didnt have much money so she bought our shoes for the first ten or so years of our lives.
  6. I was, too! But I was not disappointed a bit.
  7. And I loved all five items! I think I'm keeping all five. BC Footwear Communal Ankle Strap Bootie - $80: I love these! They are a dark brown suade and so adorable with a small heel. Keeping. Laila Jade Bowie 3/4 Sleeve Dolman Know Top - $58: this is a really pretty lightweight sweater that will pair well with jeans and boots. It's called burgundy, but it's more of a plum color in my opinion. Keeping. Statement Athenia Button Back Top -$58: this is a cute and lightweight flannel. It's royal blue with some burgundy and darker colors. The back is a bit long but is split. Is a little big but will be cute with jeans and boots. Keeping. Lila Ryan Liza Skinny Jean - $98: these are dark ankle jeans. Perfect length and fit except the waist is too tight. I'm going to exchange for a bigger size. I love them though!!!! Papermoon Anica 3/4 Sleeve Knit Top - $48: my favorite item. It is a black and white striped soft shirt with a little burgundy detail on a pocket. Love. It fits perfect and is just my style. Keeping. The box total is $342. If I keep all five, I get $85.50 off plus $20 off for the stylist fee, which brings me down to $236.50. not bad for quality clothing!! I can't wait to do it again!
  8. I have not read this whole thread, but I don't see how anyone could think looting was a small crime. I don't care what color your skin is, looting is taking theft to a whole different level. It's breaking glass windows and stealing TVs and computers and shoes during a crisis. I'm not talking about taking a loaf of bread or a case of water. I mean taking advantage of a bad situation by stealing. It's despicable.
  9. Thank you! I'm talking about west Carroll parish, and maybe my mom meant after taxes it's about $40.
  10. I'm trying to find the current rate but I can't. It wasn't long ago at all.
  11. It may be more now, but when my mom was subbing that's what she got paid. Even less if it was half a day.
  12. We move around with my husband's job (pipeline), and we have been in places I didn't love before, even places I hated! In Massachusetts, we were in the middle of nowhere! A 45 minute drive to any store other than a gas station. No churches, no nothing in the town. I hated it. We are in Pennsylvania now and I LOVE it. It's still a 30+ minute drive to Walmart and the bigger stores, but we have a dollar general and a grocery store in town, as well as great schools, a wonderful church and a pretty good library. And an A and W restaurant which I go to way too much. I always find a church and a library when we go to a new place. Those two things help me and the kids immensely. I look for the beauty in the town, the hidden gems, the people....I just have to make it work!
  13. The rate for a sub in my home parish in Louisiana was $40 a day and a free lunch. Wow, I can't image $90 or more a day! That would definitely bring in more subs where I'm from.
  14. My 9th grader loves it. She joined the basketball team and they have started practicing twice a week. She is also in chorus, and they're preforming a musical in December. She is making good grades, lots of friends, and enjoys her teachers. My 7th grade son also enjoys it. He is playing jr. High football and loves it. He is also making good grades, has lots of friends, and enjoys his teachers. He said he misses homeschooling, but he also likes public school right now - mainly the sports and friends. My 4th grade daughter is begging to homeschool again. She has friends, is in chorus, and makes good grades. But she misses homeschooling. She hates the long days, the busy work, and just really misses me. I am making her stick it out a few more weeks, mainly because I've never homeschooled in Pennsylvania before, so I don't know the laws and how it works. Louisiana is such an easy state to homeschool in. Also, wondering if she could continue chorus and homeschool. My 1st grade son likes it, but cried last night to Homeschool again. The days are long, the work is too easy, and he misses me. He has made 100s on everything so far, finishes his work way before anyone else, and is bored. I plan to homeschool him when I do my 4th grade daughter. My Kindergartner, who is at home with me homeschooling, misses the kids. He tells me all the time, you shouldn't have signed them up mama. Lol!
  15. I just ordered this - Thanks!! I downloaded a sample and it looks great. And for $10, you can't go wrong.
  16. Maybe your mom could watch her once or twice a week, your MIL once or twice a week, and you could keep her home the rest and try to Homeschool with her there. Maybe one or both would be willing to come to your house once or twice a week to sit with dd.
  17. So far, this is what I have planned. For all of us, we will be doing ancient civilizations and the Bible, three days a week, with Saturdays for the crafts, recipes, and other fun stuff. The readings shouldn't take long and will be an extension of our already present nightly Bible time. My 4th grade daughter will be doing one page in Math Lessons for a Living Education, one page on Evan Moor Reading Comprehension workbook, and one lesson in Language Lessons for Today. This will take around thirty minutes, but she has no homework and needs the extra practice. Plus, if we homeschool later on, I want her to be in the right spot in these books (because I'm OCD). My 1st grader has a math page, sight words, and spelling words homework each night. I do want him to do extra math from The Complete Book of Math each night if he wants to. He also reads me a book daily (Henry and Mudge or the like). They will all read for 20-30 minutes before bedtime, their book choice (unless they have school assigned books). I would like to have a game night, and play geography and math games. I miss my kids...
  18. I also have IBS - C. Five years ago I started taking magnesium each night and it's a life saver. But sometimes I still get the stomach pains, like right now. Ugh.
  19. Why did you tell me this? Now that's what I'm going to be doing today!! 😊😊😊
  20. I've done it before and lost weight pretty quickly. I would fast from 3 pm until 11 am each day. So basically fasting for 20 hours a day, only eating for four hours. I didn't necessarily diet - I ate whatever I wanted to but only in those hours. Obviously not lots of junk food but normal food, normal meals, the occasional cookie or ice cream. I need to do it again.
  21. Yes. He has the most homework, lol. He already knows the sight words they've sent home so far. I will continue to do his homework.
  22. My husband thinks they should stay in for a while because they begged to go. He doesn't want to think I'll jump everything they say frog. I am a bit impulsive. I am wishy-washy sometimes. I may not wait the full nine weeks. Thanks for the encouragement though that it is okay for me to take them back out. I need to hear that it's okay!
  23. Oh any my 4th grader had already brought home a workbook for standardize testing practice. On day 5 of public school!
  24. I just ordered my first Fix! It should be delivered the 16th. So long to wait!!!
