  1. I think about you and your daughter every so often. I hope you’re both doing well ❤️
  2. Yes, my husband’s grandmother! And she’s turning 90 (!!!) in December, so jokes on us 😂
  3. I love that so many of you are still active on here ❤️ it’s so nice to see familiar names (and even some avatars stayed the same!)
  4. I went by a few names on here when I was active… tigersgrowl1093, BeatleMania, Elisheva. I don’t know if anyone remembers me, but I’ve lurked randomly over the years and just wanted to say hi and thank you! I started posting here back in 2010? 2011? I was a rising 10th grader looking for resources on self teaching / homeschooling the last two years of high school. I received a lot of help, a lot of loving support, and I gained a community during a very turbulent and lonely time in my life. For that, I sincerely thank you all. I see many familiar faces just scrolling through the most recent threads. To catch up, if anyone is interested… I graduated high school in early 2012 and I married my high school sweetheart that same year. I received an Associate’s degree and then went on to receive my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. I built up a freelance career as a content writer which I’ve continued, though I now also work full time in eCommerce. On a personal note, my husband and I are celebrating our 10 year anniversary in a few weeks. We’ve booked a cruise for the end of the year which is our first big trip solo as a couple. No kids to homeschool yet, but we adopted a sweet mutt almost three years ago. I couldn’t have pictured my life the way it is today, but I have many of you lovely people to thank. I hope you’re all doing well and I’d love to catch up!
  5. Could you perhaps create a makeshift cone for the hamster? That way you could apply a soothing ointment/cream, and she also can't further pick or lick her wounds. I'm sorry :(
  6. I suppose it could be teething? Some of his back teeth broke through a few weeks ago. At the moment, he's alternating playing and whining/crying. I gave him some baby gas drops to see if that helped at all.
  7. My sister is at work, but she's waiting on a call back from the peds nurse.
  8. He pooped normally yesterday, but nothing yet today (it's 11AM). He's eating little things. Some cheerios here, some plain pasta there. Nothing like his usual, but enough to get him by. He seems to be drinking normally and has wet diapers, and his eyes aren't sunken. No fever. No one else has any symptoms. We all got a stomach bug about 1 1/2 months ago, but he got over his within 36 hours, so it's not lingering from there either.
  9. My 1-year-old nephew has been feeling icky for the past few days. About four nights ago, he vomited what looked like white paste twice. It was more like spit up than vomit actually. Prior to the episodes, he would toss and turn and whine. He did the same the following night. These past two nights, he hasn't spit up at all, but he still has episodes of tossing, turning, and whining for about 15 minutes or so at night. Also, he did have runny stools, three days ago and two days ago. But only once on both days. We thought it was reflux, due to the consistency of the spit up. Now, he's acting like he's in pain. He doesn't want to be put down, fusses, and is just generally not in a good mood. He's been drinking fluids (not milk, as we didn't want to further upset his stomach) but hasn't really been interested in eating for the past few days. He's eaten a bit here and there, but nothing much. Is this something to ride out, luke a virus? The urgent care near us doesnt see children under 5, and the peds doesn't have an appointment today. Is this ER worthy, or wait and see if it gets worse? Is there something we can do to relieve his pain a bit?
  10. Thanks milovany and Lanny! I think I'll look into FreeTaxUSA
  11. We have one which the entire immediate family knows about, and a few members of extended family as well. We don't really discuss it, and I think for the sake of honoring that person's memory, we won't tell it to future generations. It's something that I wish I didn't know, but it kind of happens that I need to. Now, I do believe this "secret" is public record, though I haven't tried looking. It's not something that would come up unless intentionally looking for it, though.
  12. So it appears that I forgot about myfreetaxes. It's linked to HR Block, and when signed in through their site, it allows me to upgrade to the HR Block Premium package (which includes the 1099 misc and Schedule C) for free. Maybe look into that frugalmamatx?
  13. I've been self-employed for the past few years, and every single time tax season rolls around I have a hard time finding a free online tax software which includes the 1099-misc. I believe last year I used HR Block, and the year prior it was TurboTax. However, every year it changes as to which software offers the free self-employed federal return for married couples within the income threshold. If you're self-employed and filing online, what software are you using? Is it free? Thanks!
  14. Ah, that was it! Thanks! It wasn't a plastic tab, but a switch on the battery compartment. Now he can dance to it, ha!
  15. My 1yo nephew got this toy for Christmas, and he absolutely loves it. We've been wondering thought why it doesn't complete the nursery rhyme songs. Like it'll sing the beginning of the Itsy Bitsy Spider, but then it fades out when it's only about 10 seconds in. It's not a huge deal, but we're just wondering if anyone knows why it does this?
