  1. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: I love kitchen stuff for Christmas, as long as it is high end. I tend to buy the low price option when I buy stuff for myself so when dh gets super nice cutting boards, or saute pans for me I really love them. I cook every day so nice cookware makes me happy. I could care less about perfume, jewelry, etc. I had to finally tell one of his aunts to stop correcting him when he bought nice houseware for me. :lol: :lol:
  2. Stopped: Watching television - I don't miss it at all. Also stopped attending a church that drained my joy. Stopped worrying about keeping a perfect house. Started: Taking classes in things I was interested in. Started working a small seasonal job that was completely different from anything I had done before.
  3. She is not unusual. It is an open secret around college campuses that senior citizens will sell their meds for cash.
  4. I am an oldschooler I guess. My girls are both grown and out of the house now. We homeschooled from K through High School (with Dual Enrollment). We were unschoolish, I think it was called eclectic back then. I did a lot of reading and planning what material to cover but we allowed the lesson plans themselves to develop naturally around what we were doing. The big turning point for me came from reading Alfie Kohn's "Punished by Rewards". I was not planning to respond to this thread until I saw your mention of the peril of praise. :001_smile:
  5. I like infused vinegars and oils but oils can be super tricky. There is a high botulism risk for home canning so it is better to store in the refrigerator and use quickly.
  6. I hope you get some good ideas. I have been wanting to try this myself.
  7. I pop in and out of following the boards. My youngest children is now in grad school. ha ha ha
  8. I love sudoku! My favorite "author " is Will Shortz. I will do multiple pages every night and fall into a puzzle zone. Ha
  9. White fox by Gary Paulsen. Actually most books by Paulsen.
  10. I had an eighties hair band flashback when I saw the title of the thread. Ha sorry I have no idea how they were organized ( Google van Halen or def leopard )
  11. I just want to look, I don't need any more yarn.
  12. What? Wait, wait they are supposed to listen to me? Are you sure?
