  1. In the 20 counties that make up our region (the only place I know to look for statistics on it), there are a total of 9 people with Covid in the hospitals. I don't know if all of them are in because of Covid. They used to maintain a website with that information, but when cases got lower they stopped.
  2. A county near me has a 13% positivity rate - and two positive cases in the past 7 days. I don't find the percent positive to be a meaningful statistic in that scenario.
  3. I don't believe I used the word control? Having a say means that if her spending crosses a line I have a right to discuss it with her in a way I wouldn't if she were self-supporting.
  4. My Dd18 is not a big spender, but I absolutely have a say over her spending. And will until we are no longer supporting her. Money can only be spent once and every dollar that we spend on her is a dollar we can't spend on her minor siblings. We are happy to help pay for college and car insurance and sometimes gas. She can use some of the money she earns for fun, but a moderate amount.
  5. My Dh and I are your parents. He is just so easy going. We have a situation going on in our family that is frankly pretty heartbreaking for both of us, but I am the one dealing with it all. He is so laid back that he thinks it is going to all work out in the end. If it does work out, it will be by the Grace of God and a lot of hard work from me. That is pretty indicative of how we handle both conflict and child raising.
  6. I keep trying to type a response while playing cards with my family, but I get lost and have to start over. I'll probably say this badly by being brief, but... Virtually no one is concerned about transmen joining men's sports or using men's spaces, except the natural concern for the transmen. That is because transmen are not a danger to men and they aren't going to dominate men's sports. This isn't about transphobia for the majority of people. It really isn't.
  7. You'd have to be extra committed to have that many books in NYC.
  8. Kids have their own books in their rooms. My nicest books are in the living room upstairs. Bibles and some devotional books are in a small bookcase in the dining room. I have a small bookcase in my closet, because I have more books than clothes. Lol Yes, I have more than 5,000 books. I also have games, but they are stored separately.
  9. To the left behind the couch: School books and large history non-fiction picture books organized by subject. Far wall: Unit to the left is mysteries. The rest is mostly fiction organized by author's last name. Several shelves have series. Two shelves have easy readers. To the right: It's complicated. Lol Biographies on the far unit. Next unit has biographies but also a couple shelves of pretty books. Under the tv are children's books. The next unit has children's books. It also has a holiday shelf. The next unit has science books. The next has more school books - ones for the current year. Also a Tolkien shelf and a foreign language shelf. The last unit is mostly for my books - teaching, health, and non-fiction books that I particularly want to read.
  10. From what I have seen online (namely SEA), it is definitely frowned upon.
  11. I'd do if for Norwex - limited inventory and useful products.
  12. When I started reading online, workboxes were the big thing. All those shoeboxes.😄
  13. Reading your posts while reading The Gulag Archipelago has been...interesting.
  14. My grandparents left after they were married.
