  1. Pizzagate too. 🙄 I have done the above a lot lately. Also, if DIL is reposting things, you can hide the group she reposted from. I use this a lot with a cousin who is very sweet but is very into animal rights, she posts some disturbing things in that regard. Like, I'm against animal cruelty even if I don't see it in action. So this way I still get to see stuff from my cousin but not the stuff that ruins my day.
  2. Similar to all the conspiracy theories about Covid-19. When you ask them WHY would this be a made-up virus, WHY is it worldwide, WHY are doctors motivated to over-report deaths, it's crickets. Or some unhinged theory. I hate the entire political right now. I HATE it.
  3. @Matryoshka the model that I had that rocked was the One, which is discontinued.
  4. That is absolutely not the way to model appropriate behavior to any student. How do teachers like this expect to be respected when they can't show respect themselves? I'm an email person so I'd start by emailing the coordinator. Not sure what I'd say, but @sassenachhas a great suggestion. Possibly cc the principal, or wait to see how the person defends the behavior and if there is an apology. I get that there were apparently no supervisors involved in the meeting, but was any other adult in the room with your kid? It would be interesting to get their take on it as well. Some people
  5. My first fitbit was so awesome. Lasted forever and withstood tons of abuse. I can't remember if I had one or two more after that one finally died, but it was not the same at all. It was like a completely different product.
  6. My state is very strict but one of the first things allowed to re-open were golf courses.
  7. I don't know if this would fit your needs but I'm pretty excited about the Amazon Halo. It's not out yet but if you're not in a huge hurry it might be worth the wait: https://www.amazon.com/Amazon-Halo-Fitness-And-Health-Band/dp/B07QJ6YL4T/ref=sr_1_3?_encoding=UTF8&c=ts&dchild=1&keywords=Activity+%26+Fitness+Trackers&qid=1602855081&s=exercise-and-fitness&sr=1-3&ts_id=5393958011
  8. Oh it bugs me so much when people ask what you want (or for ideas for the kids) and then they get something else anyway. Last year for my son's birthday my mom asked for ideas for my son. I said he could use a new robe. She said "Well I heard about this book and I think he'll like it." I responded, "Okay, well to be honest that doesn't sound like the kind of book he likes. But again, he really needs a new robe." (She usually gives money plus a small gift-so this wasn't a financially-driven decision). A year later he still hasn't read the book. And I just got him a new robe in t
  9. I think Fitness Blender on YouTube could be helpful. I am going to have my son use it this winter. It is not geared toward that age but there is a man and a woman who do the videos. I thought my boy would prefer to see a man doing the exercises as a role model. And there are all kinds of exercise types and video lengths.
  10. You are the one who assumed the worst. You asked @ausmum3 if she was trying "to make some kind of point that the situation is horrible and out of control here?" Why would you assume that someone stating a basic fact is trying to mock America? Especially in the context of all the facts that she's posted both before AND after that post. To me your comment is not especially welcoming. YOU are assuming the ulterior motive.
  11. It's hardly an assumption when I see what you've been saying all around the chat boards. I know your point of view. This assumption was not based on just one post.
  12. @Ausmumof3has been posting all kinds of updates throughout this entire thread. For you to focus on this one suggests to me that you are looking to be offended and are looking for a fight. I have appreciated all of her updates, but I like to know what's happening in general. Not a big fan of burying my head in the sand.
  13. Awesome, thanks! Amazon can be so hard to navigate sometimes.
  14. How does that work? Is it any 3 books or are they advertised as part of the deal?
