  1. I am somewhere in this general vicinity. All of the people I had expected to die because of contracts ending and such are the ones who survived. Something odd has happened and I expect a major twist. I just saw it last night, so I haven’t worked it all out yet (I keep going back to Red Skull admitting that the price to be paid for the soul stone is never worth it). I do think the ones who were actually killed by Thanos, as opposed to disintegrating, are actually gone for good. Heimdall was particularly painful. It’s amazing to me how much they were able to make us truly care about some of these characters over the years.
  2. I’m already divorced (2.5 years now), but I would LOVE to be a support for other women experiencing the process (or considering it).
  3. I tried this and never did get the “come back†email 😒
  4. Math: SM 5 LA: finish WWE & FLL Lit: unsure Science: Mystery Science with younger sibling History: listen through and discuss SOTW with younger sibling with additional library books/encyclopedias (maybe add books 2-6 of Draw and Write Through History if secular enough). Possibly begin outlining. Spanish: Breaking the Barrier with older sibling Maybe English from the Roots Up Typing of some sort She has chosen outside classes in art, cooking, baking, and sewing.
  5. We are using 8th grade to dive deeper into my DD’s personal interests before tackling high school. Math: Algebra 1 with DO History: BYL pre history (picked apart and rearranged by me) Science: BYL history of science (picked apart and rearranged by me) Lit/writing: homemade comparative study of books and their films Grammar: G4TWTM Spanish: Breaking the Barrier Outside electives: acting, art, filmmaking, backstage/technical theater
  6. Somebody might have already pointed this out, but Barton recommends not requiring/encouraging reading outside of Barton until after level 3 (level 6, I believe, for textbooks). This does not apply to the entire time a student is doing Barton. I just wanted to make that clarification. Carry on.
  7. https://www.amazon.com/Catit-Senses-2-0-Digger-Cats/dp/B015P13QMM/ref=sr_1_6?s=pet-supplies&ie=UTF8&qid=1517973950&sr=1-6&keywords=Cat+enrichment+feeder This is what we use for our food inhaler. She used to throw up all the time. She hasn’t once since we started using this feeder. It was also recommended to us to switch her to a high protein wet food to help her feel fuller. We feed her 1/2 can of wet food in the morning and a 1/2 serving of dry food in her special feeder in the evening. All of this has helped tremendously. We’ve always fed grain free. Good luck!
  8. This is an extremely scarey thing to confront, and if you’ve never faced a situation like this, in which you fear for the future itself and the possible loss of your children, then you simply cannot judge. Joyce, I hope you find your path and your peace soon. I no longer know what advice to offer, but you do still have my support.
  9. I did not like it as a soy sauce replacement at all. It was much too sweet. I suppose it would be a fine flavor for other uses, but not as a soy sauce replacement. I use soy sauce so rarely that I just decided to avoid anything that called for it when I was avoiding soy.
  10. We have never won Pandemic. We’ve come maddeningly close so many times, but never actually won. It’s thrilling and infuriating at the same time.
  11. Then I’m certain Athens would be a wonderful trip for your family. Enjoy!
  12. I have been to Athens, but it was many years ago as a teenager. It was okay. The Parthenon was pretty cool, but the rest of Athens I don’t recall particularly enjoying (but again, I was a teenager). Santorini, Crete, Delphi,, etc were memorable and beautiful. I would love to go to Greece again someday, and I’d likely still visit Athens because I’m sure, as an adult making my own agenda, there are many beautiful and valuable sites to visit. But I would likely spend the bulk of my time elsewhere. Some of the islands are definitely more touristy, but the people are so very friendly and the scenery so very beautiful that I just couldn’t skip it all to spend more time in Athens. I guess it depends on your purpose and goals for the trip. I didn’t have children at the time, but I don’t imagine young children would have much fun. Older children, especially those interested in the ancients &/or mythology, would likely really enjoy a trip to Greece. I’ve always wished I could take my oldest daughter, who has been a mythology buff since age 9 or so, to Greece. It would be an amazing trip for her.
  13. I had one cat who never got on the counters. I don’t think I’m biased or exaggerating when I say that she was the best cat that ever lived, though, and I miss her terribly. Our 3 yr old cat and 6 month old cat both get on the counters. The older one knows enough to do it only when we aren’t around. The younger will do it right in front of my face. It drives me nuts. So I think they can be “trained†to outsmart you, but not eliminate the problem behavior 😉
  14. Me: coffee with almond milk and cocoa powder. Very typical. There isn’t much that settles well for me first thing in the morning. If I do eat it is usually a half of a banana and a TBS of nut butter or Greek yogurt with berries. All 4 kids had cinnamon rolls and berries for breakfast. This is NOT typical. It’s oldest’s bday. They typically have oatmeal, eggs, yogurt parfaits, English muffins, etc. (not all at the same time😉).
  15. If you think there's a chance you have the flu then you should not potentially expose other people. You should not go, imo. You could already be contagious even if you don't yet feel sick.
