  1. My kids’ school does classroom awards through 6th grade. Each student gets an awards based on a positive trait that the teacher noticed in them over the year. The kids love it and I think these awards help the students to see things in themselves that they may not have realized before. There are good ways to do class awards to lift kids up rather than tear them down. I am appalled by the teacher in this story though. That is just terrible. ☹️
  2. Like another pp, I would suggest a fruit dip, rather than a dressing. My favorite is cream cheese mixed with heavy whipping cream. I sweeten it with stevia, but you could also use sugar. Brown sugar is yummy in it too!
  3. A girl in my ds class at school was given an old phone by a friend. It wasn’t activated with cell service or data, but she used it to connect to WiFi to use Instagram, Snapchat, texting apps, etc. It was a long time before her parents learned about her phone! I imagine this could be the situation here?
  4. I ordered a sectional sofa online from Costco and have been happy with it. When it was first delivered, they only had one part of the sectional. I called Costco with the delivery guys in my living room and they apologized and immediately shipped out the other part. They may have given us a small discount too. All in all, a good experience.
  5. I live mine and use it often. It is an off brand (I’ll have to look at the name). I mostly use it to cook up chicken breasts or tenders when I don’t feel like grilling. I occasionally use it to roast veggies.
  6. Has your dh considered the oil and gas industry? My dh has a college degree but was in a sales job, which did not fit his personality at all. He completely changed careers and now works in oil and gas. He started out doing a more physical job but he has worked his way up over the years. In the beginning, he probably made around $80,000 and he has done a great job working his way up from there. The downside is that dh has to work away from home. But, he loves his job and he is so good at it, so we make it work.
  7. Nope, my area code doesn’t match my local area and it hasn’t for about 10 years now. Sometimes it throws people off (locally, when someone asks for my number they make an assumption about the area code) but with everyone primarily using cell phones now, I feel like this is becoming way more common.
  8. Lol...we are members and I did forget! Thank you!!!
  9. Neither of us have ever tried diving! Would be interested in trying though!
  10. Yes, trip insurance will definitely be happening here!!
  11. Wow...thank you so much for all of the responses!!! This is exactly what I was looking for. Dh and I aren’t picky at all and since we haven’t traveled much, we don’t have anything to compare to. I will definitely take a look at the suggestions listed. Regarding a travel would I go about finding one? I don’t need someone local, but how do you find someone who is legit online?
  12. Dh and I will be celebrating 20 years this November and really want to take a vacation together. Neither of us have traveled much and we are having difficulty figuring out where we want to go. Initially dh brought up going to Vegas for a few days. I have never been so that sounded fun. Once I started looking though, I started wondering if a cruise (which I asked about here) or even just a visit to somewhere in the Caribbean would be more fun. Some info about us/this trip...we live in WV and while we don’t have much opportunity to fly directly to anywhere cool, dh does have a bunch of miles saved up, so we think our airfare will likely be covered. I’d like to spend about 5-6 days wherever we go. We both work and don’t have a ton of days to take off. Also we will have to leave our kids with the grandparents. I feel like we need some time to just relax and enjoy hanging out together (which is why a Caribbean or cruise vacation appeals to me). Dh works out of town and our kids are at that busy busy stage of life, so it feels as if we get little time together and little time to relax. If someone could give specific recommendations, I would love it! I was looking at cruises and all-inclusive resorts because I like the idea of the ease of things. Plan the vacation, pay for it, and that’s all. I usually enjoy planning, but i just don’t know where to start here. I’m not sure what places are the most fun, nicest, best beaches, etc. Best websites with deals? Should we contact a travel agent? How to find a good travel agent? Any other nice vacation suggestions (for November...probably the week before thanksgiving)? While we both enjoy adventure (dh is an avid backpacker and I enjoy hiking), we are really looking for something relaxing here. Thanks for the suggestions!!
  13. I’ve been giving nieces and nephews a graduation gift of $50. I don’t give a get into college gift.
  14. I’m quoting myself to add that I don’t have any joint pain, which is why I haven’t noticed any benefits. However, I have read that collagen helps with skin and gut health, so I’ve been hoping that it is working there (preventive). I also take it to add protein to my low carb shakes or smoothies, when I don’t have another protein source. My dh has suffered from joint pain for years and he feels that the collagen helps him.
  15. We would like to travel in November. Not sure exactly what dates at this point though. I am thinking a 5 or 6 night cruise. With travel, I don’t really want to be gone much longer than a week. I honestly don’t know where I’d like to travel or what we’d like to do. Dh and I haven’t done much traveling and we would both like to go somewhere where we could relax and see some interesting sites. I need to look more closely at excursions, because other than snorkeling, I have no clue what’s available. We are really open to anything at this point. I need to do more online researching. I am also considering staying at an all-inclusive resort. But I think the idea of cruising and seeing different areas sounds more exciting.
