  1. Okay, cool. Thank you! I’ll go back and look at how many problems are missing.
  2. So I bought the BA 3A Guide and Practice books from a homeschooler a couple of years ago, and the first seven pages of the practice book are missing. I don’t know why I didn’t look when I bought it...I mean I did flip through to verify it hadn’t been written in. Anyway, now that my DD is finally ready for BA, I need to figure out if the missing pages are important enough that I need to buy a new practice book. So should we just read the guide, or should I buy a new workbook?
  3. I'm looking for support from fellow iPhone homeschoolers who use Siri shortcuts. I have a shortcut I'm trying to create that I'm stuck on, and I wanted to bounce ideas off someone who is familiar with creating shortcuts. I know that I can go to reddit or another forum. I will if I absolutely have to, but I prefer not to have to do that, because I'm very new to this, and all those people intimidate me quite frankly. So, can anyone help me?
  4. Quick question. Are they accredited? My daughter is most likely staying home this year, and when she goes back, I’d like for most of her homeschool classes to transfer to public school.
  5. I second popsugar. One of the trainers/participants in many of the videos annoys me (my issue, not hers), so I avoid them for that reason. But they’re decent workouts. One more thing I just remembered is that a lot of the videos are short. I remember having to stack a couple of videos to get a complete workout. They may have more options now.
  6. How do you download YouTube videos? Do you need to have the paid version of YouTube?
  7. I’m not familiar with those classes, but YouTube has so many videos. Also check out fitnessblender.com. They have free videos and programs (for a small fee). If it wasn’t for the bad WiFi connection in my workout space, aka garage, I’d be a loyal customer of theirs.
  8. They’re plastic, about 2 inches in length. Yes, but while the kids have “cleaned” that room for the past 7 years, it is the first time I’ve gone through, it thoroughly organizing it. So they could be from as long as seven years ago. Good idea! I mounted an extra command clip from Christmas on my nightstand to keep my phone charger within reach. I could use it to keep cords together if I never figure out where they belong. This is what I was thinking. My daughter’s cork board came with similar brackets. I just can’t figure what it would hang.
  9. Cleaning out the kids game room, I found these. I’m not sure if they’re important or can be tossed out. I’d love to chuck them, but I know as soon as I do, I’ll realize what they’re for and will regret it. The picture uploaded sideways. I’m on my phone and don’t know how to fix this. Sorry!
  10. I keep coming back to Math Mammoth after getting lured away by other programs. I used it when my oldest three were homeschooled 10+ years ago.
  11. II was just telling my husband that I can’t wait for the farmhouse fad to be over with. The market is over saturated. I do think it’s a good look, but it doesn’t work with the style of my house, and its popularity make shopping for other styles more difficult. My friend refurbishes pieces of furniture into the farmhouse-style and makes a pretty penny.
  12. They are ours. Mom is getting spayed as soon as possible. The white one is changing a little. It looks like she’s going to have grey ears and tail.
  13. Thanks for the responses. It was interesting to read through them. I learned a few new things, like the possibility of multiple dads (lol). Tanaqui’s post was most interesting. I had read about the connection between white cats and deafness. We will definitely be keeping an eye on him/her.
  14. Mom/dam is blue, and 3 kittens are each solid white, black, and grey. Is there any way to figure out the dad/sire’s color? I’ve googled and all I can figure is that in order for a blue female to produce a black kitten is for the male to be a tortoiseshell. Any thoughts?
  15. My husband and I were discussing this recently. He said that he would not take offense if I were to offhandedly say that he was home babysitting to anyone, because it is meant as a joke. He thinks people are too sensitive and take everything so seriously all the time. Each time we brought home a baby, I took care of the baby and DH took care of me by taking over my portion of the housework and preparing meals. Gradually, as the baby started solids and weaned from the breast, he took more parenting responsibility. Some of our kids were willing to take a bottle, and he would care for them if I needed to go out, but with the ones who didn't take the bottle, I was the only option so I either took them with me or left them with him for a very short time (with a backup bottle of course). Besides nursing and changing poopy diapers, we equally cared for our babies. Now that the kids are older, it is 50/50 with the kids. I stay at home, so I take on more housework than he does. I've never felt the need to give special instructions before leaving kids with DH.
  16. I’m not sure if this has been addressed, but I took it to mean that by exclusively breastfeeding and attachment parenting, the parenting split was unbalanced. She got herself into this uneven role because of those decisions.
  17. Besides corian, you could also do granite, silestone/quartz, etc. with an undermount sink. I love the look of silestone in the bathroom. Also, Formica is making a comeback. They have some pretty and modern finishes, and you can undermount the sink with it as well.
  18. I tried a few times but couldn’t continue due to feeling awful. My doctor said that women should not fast 100% of the time for 8 hours or less. He recommended either lengthening the window for eating or fasting a few days a week. I naturally eat between 12:00 and 10:00.
  19. Chuy’s is my favorite. Thankfully they expanded and have multiple locations throughout Texas and some other states, including one not too far from me. There’s one in Orlando too. Near the library there used to be a restaurant called Louisiana Longhorn Cafe. It was really good, and they were very family friendly. Hopefully they’re still around. We learned that another favorite restaurant of ours, La Morada, closed down the last time we drove through there.
  20. So sorry to read the update. I know mediation is pointless, but if you make the effort, at least you can say that you’ve done what was asked by the judge. Is there a way to get it fast-tracked to trial?
  21. I’ve been with DH since I was 18. I love him more than ever, and our marriage is great. If something happened to him and I were left a widow, I couldn’t see myself remarrying. Yes, my husband is amazing (but not perfect) and all that, but that’s not the main reason why I’d never remarry. My reason is that I’ve never been a single adult. I would want to pursue my own interests and passions and be able to come and go as I please without having to consider anyone else’s needs. It’s selfish, but when you consider how long I’ve been selfless as a wife and mother, it makes sense. My secondary reasons are that I love my husband so much, I couldn’t see myself with anyone else. We built our lives and family together, I just can’t imagine another person in his place. Also, marriage is hard work and lots of compromise. I have no desire to work that hard and compromise with another person like that ever again.
