  1. I purchased it. I saw Dr. Spielhagen speak at the RFWP conference a few years ago and liked her presentation. I kept checking back as I was under the impression it was going to be published not long after that conference, but it was a longer wait than that. I had to order some other books from RFWP, so I added in Dr. Spielhagen's materials once I realized they were available. My kids are almost finished with GSWL, so we are going to use this as a supplement.
  2. I would agree that the spin out doesn't leave things all that dry after spinning out. In fact, my last washer did a little better in that regard, and it was an old manual top loader with agitator. Sometimes I manually add a second spin to the SQ, but usually I don't bother. My last washer was 12-13 yo and was very similar in some ways to a SQ. Manual dial, not a lot of electronics, etc. I don't think it was crafted as nicely, but it operated similarly. In that regard, for me it is kind of the same thing. Low tech, I can manually tweak whatever if I want. Low frills, effective cleaning. My old one couldn't rebalance any more and had issues with the transmission I guess. We repaired a few times, and then it finally got to the point where it was done. So SQ isn't life changing for me really, but it seems to be a quality machine and I hope it lasts.
  3. I live in a smallish town in a suburb (45-60 mins outside of) of a major city in the Mid Atlantic/Northeast. We have 3 local dealers within 15-40 min. The nicer appliance store we deal with most often actually doesn't carry them, but several other small appliance stores do, and they service them as well. We bought our mid range model in January and I've been quite happy with it. At that time they were extending the warranty to 5 years. We were purchasing in a somewhat urgent situation and on NYE, so I went with the mid range since it was immediately available. We would have had to order and wait on the least expensive model. I do not have a SQ dryer yet.
  4. Great update! It sounds like you are having a very positive experience.
  5. I remember maybe 11-12 years ago when they were doing trials with d-chiro inositol, and it was working well for many people, including those who were not responsive to fertility meds or metformin (depending on what PCOS symptoms they were trying to address). I have seen some literature on this in the last few years, but I haven't followed it like I did in the beginning of my PCOS journey. I would love to hear more about your experience as well.
  6. Best of luck to you, and I look forward to your updates. I am a PCOSer as well (lucky us!). No weight issues, but metformin (with LCing and exercise) helped normalize my cycles over the last 10 years. It is so weird to have 30-35 day cycles for the first time in my life without BCP. 2 of my 3 kids were conceived with metformin and LC alone after doing injectable meds to have my first. I do like to follow what's going on in endocrinology though, so it will be interesting to read about your experience if you update. Thanks for sharing.
  7. Holding you and your family in my thoughts today, Rosie. You know we are all thinking of you and your precious boy.
  8. I have no interest in CC as it is currently set up. I am part of a small co-op (4-5 families) we built with friends, and we cover some classical academics, including poetry, memorization, art history, etc. It works well for us. Most co-ops don't appeal to me. We do park days with fellow HSers, and then our one day a week of academic co-op with close friends who share a similar educational philosophy.
  9. Absolutely, and I am concerned that this story being "fabricated" is going to detract from the real conversations that need to happen about the mishandling of sex assault cases by institutions over and over again. This story, while terrible if indeed fabricated, doesn't change the fact that many of the nation's universities have mishandled cases and mislead students for decades.
  10. How horrible if fabricated, but we still need to focus on the fact that universities all over the US have mishandled sex assault cases at a level that is disturbing. We know UNC, Princeton, and many others have blamed survivors, misinformed and mislead students, etc. That hasn't changed; those are facts, and the universities themselves have acknowledged that their policies needed to be changed. Our military has also mishandled sex assault cases over and over again, going back almost 20 years ago I remember the stories about how the academies treated survivors. They continue to have issues with their handling of these cases. Those are facts, and that's a major concern, even if the UVA story ends up having been fabricated.
  11. Peace to her family. What an enormous loss.
  12. I always lose the baby weight and am at a healthy weight now, but I have a diastasis (much improved thanks to the Tupler Technique, however). I have wrinkly belly skin that bothers me. However, I am unlikely to ever pursue it because: 1) with a real tummy tuck, recovery time is pretty bad. You are quite limited, and it is difficult. 2) The mesh used in some of these repairs has been linked to issues that I'm not willing to sign up for at this point in time. 3) Anesthesia has very real risks, and I'm not sure I'm willing to take those risks for an elective procedure. But I most definitely think about it!
  13. My 9 yo is finishing up Singapore 5B right now. I purchased some LoF books to supplement or change things up when he's bored. He really enjoys them. One of them basically hints about Santa not being real, so just be aware of that if it is an issue for your family. I also dislike some of the author's personal POV that creeps into the books, but DS1 seems fairly oblivious. He's using the decimals and prealgebra books right now. I'm picking up physics for him when I complete my RR order.
  14. For smoothies I use unsweetened almond milk, unsweetened yogurt (or a cleaner protein powder like Jay Robb sometimes), frozen berries, sometimes spinach or half an avocado, and a touch of stevia. I don't do juice or higher carb fruits like bananas. I will sometimes toss a banana in if I'm sharing it with my kids (splitting the smoothie 4 ways).
  15. I asked this not too long ago as well. Looks like mama-san had a child who took the course and enjoyed it. http://forums.welltr...tional-testing/ eta I also recently saw that Khan now has something with cryptography, but I don't know what age or grade level it is geared toward. I was looking at something else on Khan and saw it on there a few weeks ago.
