  3. So sorry this happened...I pray that you are welcomed to a place that values you, because you do deserve this.
  4. Our Costco is doing this, as well. Also, you are not allowed to pick up a shopping cart. They spray and wipe it down, give it to you when they check your card. It's the waiting in line that needs work. No markers like in other places to show 6 foot separation.

  9. No paper products to be found in five trips. Lowe's had Lysol wipes and PineSol in an enormous container. We made a Costco run yesterday, they were out of the basic hoarding items, but what they did have was plentiful. The freezer section was full, milk available, only brown eggs, though. The produce has not been fresh, rather wilted and brown. We stocked up on frozen veggies.

  17. Dd used Saxon for Algebra I. I will say that Algebra I definitely showed the cracks and weaknesses for dd. We brought her back home in 8th grade, had definitely lost some skills. We repeatedly had to go back to Saxon's Algebra 1/2 for reference. I also used another program to fill in gaps (can't remember which one). I'd try and stick with it...you've gotten this far. On the SAT, the Heart of Algebra questions are very crucial. I think Saxon does a good job of covering these bases.
  18. Jean, if someone noticed it in your cart, there'll be a run on it. We bought powdered Gatorade and Tang just to have on hand...people were asking what aisle, the limits. But please, no, don't hoard the chocolate pudding! Even if mine is sugar free. 🙂 Made a new banana loaf recipe and I can't even sample it. That is love right there people, that is love. Took an online painting class through a group I had joined. Very fun! TriTip is in crockpot, ready to be sliced, mashed potatoes, green beans I was way more productive than I thought I would be today.
  19. Morning, all! Amy, hope dd and all of you are okay. Best wishes! To do: coffee check in on my mom, brother, sister whatever else I feel up to... Have a great day!
  20. Morning, all! Overslept and missed my special Target shopping hour. I guess I will wait for next week. This is what happens when you decide to go on a major cleaning/disinfecting spree late at night. To do: Doctor will be calling back regarding my mom, Rx. lots of coffee, devotional help dd with her room, purge/organize/order some shelves, storage, etc. clean out master closet and listen to Audible download chicken in crockpot...did meatloaf last night, instead pay, file bills place Amazon order Have a great day!
  21. I would like to buy a graphic tablet to use during this lock down. I would use it for both work (teaching) and personal (drawing/delving into photos). Does anyone have experience with a tablet they love? Price point is low to mid-range. Thanks in advance...
  22. Good job! I like how she pointed out not to bring everyone with you...so important.
