  1. I am assuming that if anyone in our immediate household gets it, we've all been exposed and therefore treating like they have a regular flu (but also quarantining the whole household). I'm a little more fatalistic though in general, so feel that the infirm should have free reign of the house with extra precautions around where they are laying, eating, touching things.
  2. Parking at the college is ridiculously expensive, so hanging out there for 2 hours isn't really an option at this point. My DH and I are continuing to brainstorm...he may start doing both pickups on T & Th (pick up from high school, take to comm college and then pick up from comm college). Then, at least I'd have 2 days at home where we could be more focused. I'm also looking at cutting back on the number of subjects we're doing. Audio books just aren't a resource we can use. We're all too kinistetic in our learning style and can't re-read an audio book when our minds start wondering
  3. Thanks for the feedback. I think it comes down to I have to start the day running instead of easing into it; we just don't have the time for that this season. I'll try getting up earlier and starting earlier..hopefully that will get us back on track! Or at least get a few days of feeling like *something* got accomplished!
  4. I've been homeschooling for a Loooooooong time...and this year I just cannot seem to get myself and my kids together. Part of that I know is because our schedule is the busiest it's ever been and I'm not sure how to make everything work when the kids (and I) are so dis-tractable when we've been interrupted and have a difficult time getting back into our groove when interrupted. And this year is proving to have LOTS of interruptions. My oldest is not being homeschooled for the first time this year. He is at a school 30 minutes away. The main reason for this is because our state provides f
  5. One of my goals for this year is to take every Amazon Prime box or Sam's Club delivery box and fill it up and take it to the donation center...BEFORE I can use what just came in the box. Hopefully it'll stick but so far, it's both made my house less cluttered AND saved me money since I have a chore added to ordering things online now 😄
  6. I really appreciate everyone's input as I am trying to do the best thing. But, Faith-manor, I think this is the thing that most aptly puts into words everything that I am concerned about. I need to remember that we had very solid reasons for creating this boundary. And, a whim invitation isn't a good enough reason to abandon that boundary. The reasons for breaking it aren't yet better than the reasons for establishing it. I will keep an open mind though for the future. For now though, I'll bow out and spend time with my nephew on another day.
  7. Invited boyfriend first because they were at a gathering together. Then sent out a group text invite my sister, my parents and me. Then I responded we'd be there. Then brother told me that he also invited boyfriend. He knew it would be a problem for me so wanted to give me a heads up so I could decide if I wanted to change my RSVP or not.
  8. My question is not "Should they invite him" my question is "should I go?" I am in no way trying to tell other people who they can and can't invite. I am trying to figure out if it's worth going when she's been a person who brings criminally dangerous people to family gatherings in the past.
  9. Typically I do trust his judgment. So, I'll take that into consideration.
  10. So, I would totally do this. Except my brother invited us, we said we could go and THEN he told me today boyfriend was also invited. Believe me, if there was a way to avoid making this into a big deal (it seems very "I'm making a Stand" if we don't go) then I'd have opted for that. So, if I change my RSVP, it's going to be known why.
  11. Just to make it super clear, no one is upset with anyone. I'm not upset with him for inviting the date to the party. He won't be upset with me if I attend or don't attend. There's no upset feelings.
  12. I swear, every time I make a post here, it's because of some weird social issue I don't know how to handle. And this time it's no different! So, please Hive Mind! Help me to navigate in a healthy and productive manner. This all starts 8 years ago. My dad's much younger sister has a history of dating a lot of different guys. This is just normal for her. She gets really connected really fast and they will live together for a couple months, break up a year later she'll be on to the next guy. Every family holiday would be spent getting to know the next one. ,Some she did married, but of the
  13. Honestly, I'd get a mold test done. https://www.healthline.com/health/black-mold-exposure#symptoms
  14. You know what? I've been thinking about this a lot tonight and I think this is the answer. Every.single.time. Make a report. Make it known. Stop the idea that a woman's body is public property if she goes outside. Stop the idea that "This doesn't actually ever happen; only for your 15 minutes of fame." Make it inconvenient and make it stop.
  15. It's fairly easy enough to google a news source of your liking to verify this information. Here are two to get you started. https://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/410401-pope-says-devil-trying-to-divide-attack-the-catholic-church https://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory/sex-abuse-scandal-pope-seeks-prayers-fight-devil-58168326
