  1. I'm so sorry. Praying for you and your family.
  2. Ohio is under a mask mandate. I've seen good compliance recently in retail but I haven't been to a lot of places. The only place mask compliance is a problem for me is at my son's school and basketball games and that's a specific situation that you won't encounter.
  3. Beavercreek is the closest suburb to Wright Pat. Fairborn is nearby too. I guess it depends on what you want 🙂 There's Yellow Springs that's well within your commute distance too if you want quirky small town and there's lots of country living in between. I live in Springfield and even that far out, it only takes about 20 minutes to Wright Pat.
  4. As an adult, I've noticed that if I and one of my siblings (or their spouses) have a phone conversation, I get quizzed on the topics we talked about. We never visit them without my mom present or rarely at least because of distances. I don't think my mom is trying to be controlling or intrusive but that's what it ends up being. I'm thrilled that my adult and minor children have relationships that are separate from me. I love that they often communicate between themselves and get together to do things that don't involve the whole family!
  5. I wonder if that's what happened to my mil this year. She got her flu shot and within a week couldn't lift her arm at all. She struggled with it for about a month. She ended up getting a injection of cortizone (maybe ?) to help with the inflamation and within a few days was fine again. I'll have to mention it to her.
  6. Are you sure the dr. actually told her this? I wonder if there was some interpretative translation going on. My mom and mil do the same thing. Drs. statements get twisted to what they want to hear rather than what was actually said. I am so thankful though that my mom's dr. called her last week to check on her (which I thought was unusual!) and told her it was no time to let down her guard and to be very careful to stay away from people that Covid was everywhere in our state. No stores, no church, no nothing! My mom is at high risk because of past heart valve replacement, lung dam
  7. Yep. A friend posted the same thing on my fb this morning in response to a post I had made last night. 😟
  8. They either don't understand or don't care. I was standing in a parking lot yesterday talking to an acquaintance. Our sons play basketball together. She casually mentions that her dh was sick for 16 days with what they assumed is Covid over Christmas/New Years (no test). I asked if any one else got it. She answered that she was sick for several days starting about 5 days ago. (Can you see me taking a giant step back to increase our already more than 6 feet of separation?). Then I realize that her son is in the gym practicing basketball with my two sons! I ask about him. Wel
  9. Because of our wide age span of kids, we ended up never getting rid of the younger games, toys and books and now I'm very thankful because we have 4 grandkids and another on the way. It's wonderful to have an easy supply of younger stuff readily available. I've passed some stuff on to the grandkids themselves which is also fun. We didn't have much of a space issue though because of a full basement. If I was cramped for space, I would have been much more conservative in how much of the younger stuff was kept.
  10. Regarding the testing of children. My youngest grandchild was sick back in the early fall. Pediatrician declined having him tested because numbers in our area were low and he doesn't go to daycare. Then in December both the baby (he's 1 yr now) and his mom were sick and pediatrician sent them both for testing (negative). My 3yo granddaughter was also tested about the same time (negative) Sent by her pediatrician (a different ped than my grandson) Our local children's hospital has drive thru testing daily now from what I understand.
  11. @Not_a_Number Here's the study from Ohio regarding school and quarantine requirements. https://coronavirus.ohio.gov/static/responsible/schools/OSCE_evaluation.pdf
  12. He quoted the studies during the press conference but I didn't write them down. I will have to do some more digging.
  13. Just as an addition to the discussion about schools and colleges. Ohio's governor announced yesterday that they are NOT seeing spread in the classroom and as a result have changed the quarantine requirements for classrooms. https://www.dispatch.com/story/news/politics/government/2020/12/30/ohio-students-exposed-covid-19-class-wont-have-quarantine/4091652001/ My understanding that if masked and distanced, no quarantine will be required in classrooms at all. This doesn't apply to extracurricular activities.
  14. Adding in: I think it was the Urban Homemaker's recipe that I started with.
  15. Through trial and error I found out that I needed to decrease the baking time for most breads in my Zo. I can't remember how I figured this out but I think there was a blog or maybe a site that sold zo's here in the states and published their recipe and used the way to set up your own program to get the bread to come out well. I'm sorry, I can't remember the website . . .maybe Breadbeckers? Anyway, every bread machine I ever had seemed to have the baking phase set too long for our tastes which is why I loved my Zo when I got it. I haven't used it in a long time though. Our family got too
