  1. Does anyone have a favorite resource for middle school that focuses on word building (teaching roots and affixes)? Thanks!
  2. Sorry, that I am just seeing this now, so I haven't read responses but am answering your questions. I am so sorry that you are struggling. Personally, this is what gives my life meaning and purpose: Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” Personally, my purpose is to love God and others. I often stray from this purpose, and my mind dwells on so many other things. I find my way back by refocusing on this purpose. It's very simple, but sometimes I make it very hard.
  3. And there's Free Pie Wednesday at O'Charley's restaurant: "You know that feeling you get on Free Pie Wednesday? Come get it today! For dine-in, come grab your Free Slice of pie with the purchase of an adult entrée OR get your hands on a Free Whole pie with any of our Family-Style Meals To-Go. Pie choices may vary by location. Only while supplies last."
  4. I would not contact the professor. They already know that this is how the group projects work. In my cynical opinion, they were designed to work this way: with the better, conscientious student(s) doing most of the work, and therefore a decent project is submitted, and everyone gets a passing grade. When in college, my children did what another poster suggested: take charge, edit as necessary, and do whatever work you have to do to get the project done. No, it's not fair, but that's the way the system is set up.
  5. I also think it's because there are so many old timers here. I was probably the biggest expert on homeschooling when my oldest was in the 5th grade, and I knew everything there was to know about homeschooling and had all the answers. Now my youngest is in the 5th grade, and I now know enough to know that I don't know everything. It's like how the biggest experts on parenting are parents of newborns. Now that I have so much experience, I am less likely to have a strong opinion about educational topics and much less likely to give advice. Unlike before, I realize now that there is no one best way of doing something and often there is no definitive answer to every question asked. For instance, one person may need to hear: "Don't take this so seriously. You don't have to do every subject every day." But someone else asking the same question may need to hear: "You must take this seriously! You must do every subject every day!" So, I think the more experience you have on a subject, the less likely you are to actually give advice concerning that subject or argue that your way is the best/only way.
  6. Thank you for posting this. These Scriptures have been in my prayers: "But let justice roll down like waters And righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.” Amos 5:24 “First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.” 1Timothy 2:1-2
  7. The chocolate part is brilliant. For me, housecleaning has always been one percent perspiration and 99 percent inspiration.
  8. I understand. Maybe another food source would work for her. I once read a story about the oldest person alive at that time. When she was twenty, she suffered from anemia. Her doctor told her to eat three eggs a day, and she did. Here's one story about her that I found: https://www.today.com/health/world-s-oldest-living-person-emma-morano-eats-eggs-every-t104523
  9. A low FODMAP diet is really helpful for many people. I hope his symptoms improve soon and you find answers to help him.
  10. She may need to be eating iron-rich foods like red meat every day. If this is what works when she’s low, she may need to do it for daily maintenance. For me, iron supplements do not seem to work as well as food sources, particularly red meat. I hope she feels better. It’s a terrible feeling.
  11. My answer is: Mr. Rogers vs. Bob Ross. I could use a debate like that one to get the last real one out of my system.
  12. It was said jokingly. Maybe I should have put a laughing face instead of 😊.
  13. No worries! I actually found the irony of getting (lightly) flamed myself kind of funny. I didn't actually get offended. I'm sorry that things are extra stressful for you these days, and I hope whatever it is gets much better soon.
  14. I guess I should have worried more about getting flamed myself. 😊 Lesson learned.
