  1. And not what you asked, but I'm going to stick my 2 cents in anyway, set her loose on Percy Jackson, The Lightning Thief. My kids loved the series.
  2. My daughter is using Derek Owens for Algebra 1. I have worked problem #3 on 7.9 more than 3 times, and I "think" the answer key is incorrect. Does anyone here know if there is an errata sheet available? Is anyone willing to work the problem and tell me what you get for an answer? TIA ps. I get 2 over x cubed y cubed.
  3. https://bigfuture.collegeboard.org/get-in/applying-101/college-admission-glossary Early Decision (ED) An option to submit an application to your first-choice college before the regular deadline. When you apply early decision, you get an admission decision earlier than usual. Early decision plans are binding. You agree to enroll in the college immediately if admitted and offered a financial aid package that meets your needs. Agreeing to ED may increase your student's chances at a school that may be a stretch for them. HTH
  4. My youngest dd appreciates Hitchcock; my youngest son does not. Rear Window is her favorite with mine being Psycho or The Birds.
  5. It's the dang "blue card" that I am having trouble getting for my daughter. I have the verification from the state that says she completed the 30 hours of driver , but I am having a hard time finding anyone up here who will do the REQUIRED by law 6 hours of behind the wheel. I'm with the others who are saying it is probably easiest and most efficient to get the social security cards replaced. Sorry for the frustration. I would definitely contact HSLDA, but I get annoyed with bureaucrats who over-step their authority and don't really know the laws they are quoting. Good luck!
  6. Cabin Lessons by Spike Carlsen - I haven't read it, so I do not know if it is appropriate, but it is on my to-be-read list.
  7. I could NOT think on Topamax. I couldn't stay on it long enough to see if it would help with my migraines. (Horrible, awful, lost-in-a-fog feeling. I couldn't even make a doctor's appointment on my own. My dh had to help me. Normally, I pay all the bills and schedule all the appointments for our family.)
  8. Dawn dish soap to help remove the dye, but use lots of conditioner afterward. (And if you use lots of cheap conditioner that should help strip the dye too.)
  9. I knew someone would come up with a good alternative!
  10. If by clean the house you mean do dishes and/or laundry, I would rather do those than mow. If by clean the house you mean dust, vacuum, and clean bathrooms or mop anything, then I would rather mow! As always...it depends!
  11. Short answer...no. No, I really don't, but then my husband didn't turn out to be who I thought he was; guess I didn't turn out to be who I thought I was either. We've been married for 26 years. I was VERY happily married for the first 12 years. Well, happy with my dh (his ex made life fairly difficult at times), but things change, and I often now wish I had made other choices or had, at least, known what I was choosing. Maybe it's just a bad day.
  12. I gave up keeping up with library books when my kids were young. It was cheaper and easier to buy books. BUT now I am over-run with books and need to sell some. I love my ereader and audible.com, at least I don't owe for late fees this way.
  13. I use Opera, and it has a start page that comes up with all my most frequented places, and then I can even drag and drop them to move around the order in which they appear. I click on Opera and then on the icon for WellTrainedMind Forums. Edited for punctuation
