  1. The school my son attends hits most of your marks. It is not near a city. They do have a top notch Kiniseology department. He was originally going to major in Exercise Science. McDaniel College in Maryland
  2. Both my kids schools the students use lanyards. Only they keep the lanyard in their pocket with the lanyard hanging out.
  3. My son took ballet for a couple of years when he was ages 3-5. He loved it and he did it for as long as he enjoyed. Yes, we received our fair share of comments. My response was "He is happy". DH's response was a bit longer. It started with he is happy. Then he went on to educate the naysayers (people concerned about our 3 year olds sexuality) with the names of athletes who take ballet. With a healthy dose of I should be so lucky my son is the next Baryshnikov.
  4. We were going to go today. Best laid plans and all that.

    It's a wrap

    Yes, it is a good feeling. Congratulations to you, too.
  6. We held a graduation party for dd this past Sunday. This is it. It's a wrap. She has a few more philosophy classes, and one other subject to finish her final paper but I am not involved in either of those classes. I am starting my next chapter after graduating 2 from homeschool high school to college. I didn't think I could do it but this group offered tremendous help and support on our journey.
  7. My go to sites: www.budgetbytes.com www.ohsheglows.com www.chocolatecoveredkatie.com www.veganricha.com I find googling what ingredients I have will lead me to some interesting new sites.
  8. My favorite no cook meal. https://chefsavvy.com/rainbow-vegetable-spring-rolls/ Sometimes I make an almond butter dipping sauce instead of the chili sauce.
  9. Other. I think they have their place. I have a few oils that I use for various things. Cleaning/skin care. However, I detest when mlm people insist that they cure everything from a zit to cancer.
  10. I would like to drop prime but dh likes the streaming and it is awfully convenient when I need to order something to ship to my son at college and soon my daughter, too.
  11. I have been using Pantene volumizing shampoo for decades. My hair is healthy.
  12. You could take the bull by the horns and confront new friend by asking what is going on. However, I am extremely non- confrontational and would probably ignore it until the friendship dissolved. I did have a friend who just stopped being my friend. She was going through stuff, I was going through stuff. I would try to make plans. Suggest different dates. She was always unavailable and after the 3rd or 4th attempt on my part I took the hint. Then it became Happy Birthday text and then finally nothing. I still miss her. I wish I knew if it was anything I did. In reality it was probably her own b
  13. After much ado about which school to choose. A decision has been made and the deposit paid. DD will be attending Goucher College Why? Because she felt at home on the campus and really connected with the students and professors she met and the swim coach. Major: Psychology. Who knows what it will be once she has a year of classes under her belt.
  14. I was never successful getting a teenager thing going. Based on my experience the teens don't want anything to do with the preteens. I wish you success in your endeavor. In my area the teens were few and far between. Most went back to school for high school. The ones who were left, my teens didn't connect with. At one point they refused to go to anything because it was always overrun with younger kids. They were tired of being the oldest. Once they hit high school 13 year olds were in the young kid category. We ended up doing our own thing with a couple of friends through the high sc
  15. We are getting closer to a decision. To her surprise she decided that the school her brother attends (McDaniel) had a lot to offer her when she went to visit him and attend admitted student day. Last night she told me she is now thinking Goucher is where she is meant to be. She has a couple of questions that she will reach out to get answers for and will hopefully be ready to commit soon.
  16. This has not gotten any easier. I was ready to tell her to pick Clark. But she got back from school number 4 a couple of days ago and I heard a level of excitement that I had not heard when she toured the other schools. We told her without thinking about it-which school would she drop if she had to drop on right now. She nixed Albright. Even though she likes the school and they gave her the most money the area is still very depressed. This leaves her with Clark, Susquehanna, and Goucher. Susquehanna- cost the most. Clark-is really the best academic overall and she liked the people s
  17. There should be a magic pill. I am not a fan of the mlm people pushing their weight loss products. Need to lose weight? There's an oil for that. Summers coming-beach body (news flash- every body is a beach body/ Keto-you need to buy my keto productsbfor weight loss. So annoying. Bottom line is- the secret to weight loss- count your calories and eat mostly plants.
  18. That is interesting. I am now curious about the people who created that home. One thing is for certain, no one wore shoes inside.
  19. Is it wrong that I am glad that I am not the only one with a child who can't decide. Misery does love company. I think in her gut she wants Susquehanna. But out of the 3 it is the most expensive. Even though they did come back with more aid when we asked it is still more than Clark and Albright. My dh is telling her not to worry about the money and I am like whoa, dude, money is a factor.
  20. My DD just got home from accepted student day at Clark. She has now attended 3 out of the 4 top contenders. Each one has something to offer and price wise they are all in the same range. There are things she likes and dislikes about all of them. I don't know why this seemed easier when my son was going through this decision making process.
  21. Who would send such a negative message. I am sorry someone made you feel like you were wasting your time. I happen to like the college acceptance threads. I find it inspiring to see where everyone gets accepted.
  22. I hated this book. And the ending just ticked me off.
  23. I have no idea when I told them. It probably came up in conversation at some point.
  24. I do a lot of chick pea curries www.veganricha.com I have been meaning to try the eggroll in a bowl. Need to bookmark that.
