  1. Hello, everyone! It has been aeons since my last post or comment, but I do pop in from time to time to read up on how everyone is doing. I just discovered the news that CurrClick has closed on my most recent visit this morning, and I have lost hundreds of files in my library that I thought were safely stored on their site so I could pull them off as needed, rather than cluttering up my hard drive. Did they notify people via email of the site closing down? I'm not on Facebook. I admit to having my mind focused elsewhere, as my father was dying and I just did not keep up with email
  2. I hear you loudly and clearly on the therapist. He is drenched in academia, with multitudes of alphabet soup after his name, so my alarm bells are already going off, but this is just a consultation. I have a couple other people on my shortlist and I have the right to change the therapist, as dh already said we both need to be comfortable talking to him. I have told dh that he would need to get the kids ready and out the door, and to help them with homework and get them organized for the following day. He said he would be more than happy to "help." Yeah, for about 30 seconds. He als
  3. Thank you for your perspectives and advice, friends. Honestly, I am more thinking the Big D than he is. We have openly discussed it, pros and cons, what ifs, what would change, what would stay they same...he is almost 60, he's finally coming out of the chemo fog from cancer three years ago, I was pretty much a single parent anyhow because he mentally checked out due to the cancer. But... I don't want to go down that road. That's not who I am and it doesn't sit well with the fact that I still choose to love him even when it's difficult to do so. I just want to be able to talk to h
  4. Thank you for the suggestions and encouragement. The children are heavily involved in 4-H, church activities, Tech Wizards, and one just started city-league pee-wee football, plus there are friends and family with whom to spend time. I have gotten them involved in every activity. He has helped out with the football playing child, but that's it. I'm not seeking to change his mind about homeschooling, I'm just trying to be able to help him see that there are good things about it that he refuses to hear directly from me. One of the reasons we are going to counseling is because he expect
  5. Ram Man and I have butted heads for years over homeschooling. He went along with it for a while, but is now making loud noise about sending all the kids to ps. I will be the first to admit that our marriage is less than ideal to begin with, but I love homeschooling all the kids. He has never read about it, never looked at curriculum catalogs, never looked at the kids's work, nothing. But he suddenly thinks he knows what's best and I am...bitter, resentful, angry, frustrated. Just pick a negative adjective and it probably fits. We are going to work on marriage counseling and a stipulation

  7. Zillow is not very accurate, based on first-hand experience. They have our current house as 4 bedrooms, 1 bath, and 1400 square feet. Ummmm, it has 4 bedrooms, 4 full baths, and is 2600 square feet, and has been that way for at least 12 years. We've been living here for 8.5 years and I checked Zillow the other day. Their info is still incorrect.
  8. Sigh. My Joy has decided to try 9th grade at the local public school this year. I haven't tried to talk her out of it, but, oh how I will miss her presence (but will gleefully welcome her back home if she decides it isn't a good fit.). I know she will do well academically and she will probably be well-received by her teachers. I have some concerns about the social aspects, as she is very mature for her age and has a great head on her shoulders. Most of her same-age peers at church and 4-H are very immature and Joy tends to gravitate toward the adults and older kids. My concern is that she
  9. The SNL skit was hilarious. My dad would be the old guy telling stories to it (put that uh-huh feature to good use) and my mom would be the old lady telling it to turn up the thermostat. My granny would be saying, "I don't know about that."
  10. Thank you for this! I will need it to "do battle" with the BOE. Thank you for sharing your experience and for answering this question so well.
  11. Dh has been looking into getting our boys involved in sports through our local public school system. We know Ohio allows for such things, but we don't know how to go about implementing it in practice. There are a lot of homeschoolers in our area, but the BOE seems to be clueless about the process, as we are apparently the first homeschooling family to try to take advantage of this law. There is great debate over whether our children would have to be enrolled as students (kinda defeats the whole playing sports as a homeschooler idea), what type of assessments they would need to submit, etc.
  12. I finally took the plunge last night while the extra $5 off coupon worked for the 5 for $25 build your own bundles. So for the total of $44.85, I was able to buy 3 of the BYB pick 5 for $25 and the Mystery Bundle (I was mainly interested in the His Story of the 20th Century) when combined with the two coupons. The items I bought for my teens and soon-to-be teens were: The GuestHollow Biology Schedule Figurative Language Who Dun It Murder Mystery Battle Cry If I didn't already have the EMH ebooks, I definitely would have added those.
