  1. Never had the shot. Never tested. But last Christmas, I thought I was going to keel over trying to wrap the Christmas presents on Christmas Eve. And, as usual, my mother-in-law didn't believe I was sick. :wacko:
  2. Thank you all! I'm encouraging 19yo to ask the manager how she would like us to clean it. This is a larger complex and I imagine she has had to deal with this before. BTW, no matter what the manager does, your suggestions will come in handy. 19yo and her boyfriend will be using my machine for awhile. This whole "exploding ink pen" incident could happen in my dryer. It might be 30 years old, but I'm not ready to replace it.
  3. This is what I've seen online, but I have to be honest that I'm nervous about using nail polish remover. If this were my own 30 year old dryer, I probably wouldn't be as hesitant.
  4. Yep, exploded in the dryer while running. The dog? Oh, I totally agree. It was an 18yo super senior. My daughter was dying to move out and get her first apartment. This guy was old enough but still in high school. Soooo immature. The apartment turned into a highschool party hangout. My daughter got the manager involved to force him out, but by then the damage was done. The sadly funny thing? We are landlords too. <shaking my head> And yes, I'm saving her. I know it. She has lost a LOT of money in a very short time (3 1/2 months). She is now living next door in the
  5. Long story short ... I'm cleaning my 19yo's apartment and there is ink in the dyer. A lot of ink. Please tell me this can be cleaned! This has become one of those nightmare experiences. I talked DH into co-signing for this apartment. One of the roommates brought his dog but rarely took the dog out to go to the bathroom. Carpet is completely being replaced throughout the entire apartment. The dog was only there a month? Two at the most? About a week and a half before they were going to move out, another roommate started a grease fire. Instead of putting a lid on the pan, he tried
  6. Remedia Publications also has an outlining book for younger students in grades 3-4. http://www.rempub.com/beginning-outlining
  7. In my opinion, it depends on the child. My daughter struggles with grammar, so we've taken it slow. I also wanted dd to see this as a fun subject, so I kept the assignments short. We also had to factor in a little extra time for the videos. Putting all that together, I have an overall goal of how much I want to accomplish during the school year, but I make a daily decision of how much dd is capable of that day. Helpful, right? ;) Probably not.
  8. Oh, this is not what I expected to find tonight when I checked this thread. Your son was so strong, such a fighter. Along with everyone here - I am heartbroken for you. May this song bring you a moment of peace when needed:
  9. When I "like" your posts I want you to know that it is to show support. I certainly don't like what is happening to your sweet family.
  10. Still here with you. :grouphug:
  11. I'm not a very spiritual person, but I want you to know I'm checking every day and wishing the best for your son. :grouphug:
  12. I sent you an invite. Hopefully it works. :)
  13. We have acquired chickens. What have we done?

      We already had snakes and raccons. Our dogs keep the racoons away now. Bobcats, foxes,and Bears are my main concern!

      Thankfully we don't have poisonous snakes in the area. Now, the raccoon and skunks could be a problem.

      I never ever have had the desire for chickens. When I saw 12yo rocking an armful of chicks that was all it took. :)

  14. I'm so thankful there are mothers. I just wish I wasn't her today.

      Sounds more negative than I intended. Sometimes I wish I didn't have to be the responsible party all of the time.



      Sometimes we need a BREAK!

  15. Thanks for the update. Glad to hear that your son is doing so well. :)
  16. Old thread but it is so funny! twat :svengo: .My revulsion for this word is so strong that I almost couldn't type it. I hated it when my mom, who is a nurse, used this word. According to the dictionary it is a vulgar word used in place of vulva.
  17. I was so proud of myself. I almost made it through February without a melt down. And then today happened.

      Thanks for the hugs and support. Today is going much better. :) It is possible that Ghirardelli's Dark & Orange chocolate is a wonder drug.

      Yes, chocolate+orange=wonder drug


      You were wise to choose the shortest month to go melt-down free. I don't even have that goal.

  18. When I read your update this scripture came to mind. "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: ..." May He give you peace.
  19. You and your family are in my thoughts. How I wish we could be there to hold you up in this difficult hour.
  20. Trying to Climbing Parnassus while my teens are playing Just Dance 4. Impossible combination. Lol!
