    UTI tips?

    D mannose powder is amazing. But if it’s that bad already you should see a Dr.

    Not sure where to move. Sell me on your state.

    We have been living in north Texas with our kids using CHIP for the past 6 years. It hasn’t been amazing but it has been do-able. I do think that with current politics CHIP is at risk.

    Oh dear. I’ve been thinking about you. Has it not gotten any better?

    I was going to say north Texas. We are about to move, but we have been here for 6 years and we have learned to love it. The intense summer heat would be an adjustment. And it’s also not as beautiful as Oregon.

    How to control fleas.....when you don't have a pet

    My husband would walk outside and see them jump on his feet. This was happening even just in the driveway! It was totally bizarre. Other people in our neighborhood reported the same thing.

    How to control fleas.....when you don't have a pet

    They could be in your yard. We don’t have pets either. This year we had a ridiculous explosion of fleas in our yard (north Texas). We had to call our bug people (because having a bug person is part of life here). They sprayed the yard. Then we found 4 in the house. They came and sprayed the house (that was a pain). And then they had to come out and do the yard one more time. It was crazy! The only thing I can think is that we must have managed to kill off some red ant colonies in our yard, which is a flea predator. All this to say, yes, I would call someone. Fleas are the worst!!

    Middle school classes online?

    My dear husband wants me to outsource more of the schooling this year. Can anyone suggest classes for middle schoolers online? (I’m not looking for an entire program.) I will have a 6th & 7th grader. Thanks!
  8. Either at this point. Not too difficult or time consuming (for me) would be a bonus.

    Need help with teen's sleep issues

    That is bizarre about the neighbor kids! As someone who has a hard time sleeping, ear plugs and a white noise machine are necessities. Also, I started using melatonin this year and it is a game changer (both for me and for my child who was a terrible sleeper). I have also found that the problems sleeping lead to anxiety about not sleeping, which keeps me from wanting to go to bed at night. So making myself go to bed at a certain time can be helpful.
  10. I have been searching for SO many things to prepare for our school year, and came across this great resource for high school health. (This is probably put together by one of the amazing mamas among us here!)
  11. We will be without a co-op this year (boo hoo) so Science is all on me. They were in two different classes last year. I need something that will work for combining both of them. Thanks!
  12. We are moving to New Bedford, MA from TX (the land of no homeschool laws). When we lived in PA there was one great website that was super informative. I am looking for something similar. I know I need to send in plans for each child, including text books. Do you include scope & sequence? And what are they really looking for as far as health & PE? Thanks!

    Being in the bathroom by yourself

    I would be FREAKING out. Absolutely not.

    pittsburg peeps . . . . anyone ever heard of

    Yes. We lived north of Pittsburgh for 11 years. It’s a thing (and sometimes it’s the only refreshment offered at the reception).
  15. I’m sorry you hurt your leg! My guess is that those people were watching to see how hurt you were, just without much expression on their faces. I was just thinking of this thread. I am at the hospital (TX) and the lady at registration greeted me with “Hello, how are you doing?” And I knew I had to finish the greetings before getting to business. In NE, “How are you doing?” Is synonymous with “How can I help you?”
