  1. This was my initial thought too, then I started overthinking it. Like, what if guy I am ambivalent about gets more votes than the two people I want, if I voted for him, couldn't that work against me etc. Thanks for helping me think it through!
  2. The scenario plays out as follows in our school district: There are 3 seats opening up for our school board. There are four candidates. 1 person I DO NOT under any circumstances want to be voted in. 1 person I don't care either way and 2 people I DEFINITELY want in. You can vote for up to 3 people. My question is, is it better to use all 3 votes voting for the 2 I want and the 1 I don't care either way, or is it better to just vote the 2 that I want. I am sure there is a mathematical way to figure this out, but I don't know it. Anyway, what do you all think? Thanks!
  3. I like that the ladder is gone, but the level is still there

    Praying for you.
  5. My 7th grader is currently studying the colonization of America and is having a really hard time dealing with the atrocities that were committed against the Native Americans and the injustice of it all really. My older kids all kind of worked through it and moved on (much like I and my classmates did in school) but it is really affecting this particular child. How do I help this child deal with the very big idea that our family is where it is because we subjected a whole race who was here first? (Thinking we are going to encounter this again when we get to the practice of slavery) thanks
  6. I am so happy for all of you that have such supportive husbands! It definitely makes the road easier.
  7. Has anyone bought skirts from the Darn Good Yarn Co? Their adds are all over our facebook right now and the skirts are so pretty, but the sales seem to good to be true. Thanks!
  8. I know this is an old thread but this post seriously headed off a panic attack today. Thank you!!!
  9. Well, our train was over 4 hours late, so on Wednesday evening we figured out the transit system, went to Powell's, Grassa and Ruby Jewel, then took the transit back to the train station to pick up our luggage and head up to our hotel (which was way out at the end of the yellow line). Thursday we took a waterfalls tour that drove us around the city at first because it picked up passengers from downtown hotels, so we got a cool tour of the city with a super knowledgeable guide, then took us out to see 4 waterfalls and the fancy rest stop. After that we sampled burgers from a few places as it was burger week, shopped a little downtown, picked up blue star donuts and got back on our train. It was so much fun! We wanted to do the gardens, but were so late Wed and still figuring things out, then the tour was 4 hours long Thursday that we felt like we didn't have the time to devote to it that we would want, so saving it for hopefully a future trip. It was so much fun!
  10. Thank you everyone so much! We had a FANTASTIC overnight in Portland and really hope to bring the kids here some day!
  11. We will be there the 7th, so I guess we are good there. Thanks so much for all the input! I am feeling much more confident about our time in Portland!
  12. So dh is interested in both the Chinese and the Japanese Gardens. If we did the Japanese Gardens on Wednesday after we finally arrive in Portland, could we do the Chinese Garden before we leave Thursday since it is so close to the train station? Or should we just avoid the Chinese Gardens?
  13. The bookstore and the Japanese gardens are on the list now. I saw the donut restaurant recs, any other great places to eat? I looked on Triple D and saw a place called Byways cafe
  14. Thank you so much everyone! I love our crowd sourcing community! I have been scouring the internet, but there is nothing like the perspective of people who have been or live there.
