  1. I have 4 kids. I found stockings I liked 6 years ago. I bought 12 of them. 2 for us, 8 for my kids and spouses and 2 spares (I don't know why.) We won't do stocking and gifts for the grandkids so they wil each have a giant gift bag we reuse each year which will serve as stocking & gift.
  2. My eldest daughter deals with bipolar. She has be pretty stable for the past 3 years which is great. But recently the dr wants to change her meds due to weight gain and because she should never get pregant on those meds. She isn't spirallying downwards yet but she has had a few "wobbles" and it makes me nervous because I'm just starting to feel like I'm beginning to heal emotionally myself. It is good to know that we aren't alone because sometimes when you are sitting in the emergency room at 3am you do feel very alone.
  3. I can't even remember the last time I took time to just read through the thoughts and comments of you wonderful ladies! What have I missed? So, this has been my life. This past weekend dd#2 graduated from college and dd#3 graduated from grade 8. I've completed building three powerpoint courses to teach parents about homeschooling in Ontario (preschool, grade school and high school) so now other parents can teach the classes out in the community. It's been a year and my YL essential oils business is booming. I'm still on target to be able to retire my husband in four years when we are
  4. I got an email that one of the homeschoolers school boards has be suddenly shut down. Anyone out there know what is going on? For those that aren't familiar with Alberta homeschool policy, parents can register with a homeschool school board and received funds from the Alberta government to use towards homeschooling thier children. People frequently in Ontario think we should lobby to get the same thing but I don't want it. With government money comes government input so I'd rather steer clear myself.
  5. If they call back and say they are bring papers to serve you again, tell them to pick up a pizza for dinner since it's on their way anyways. :P

  7. Just curious, if you are constantly waking up around 3am and lets say you usually took it around 9am. What would happen if you took it at say noon? Would you wake up around 6am instead? Again, just curious. You have to get sleep, its not good for you physically and mentally or for your family if you aren't getting enough sleep. Have you run your medicine list through something like https://www.drugs.com ? I track all my dd's meds and dosages through that app on my phone so if we ended up in the hospital I can quickly give the dr's access to what she is currently taking because when
  8. My bipolar dd was on Cymbalta for 5 months. Then they wanted her to change drugs. My dr said there would be no withdrawl issues when I asked in the office. My gut told me this kid never does anything easy. So, I started researching what people did to go off of it. We found so many stories of people who were taking years to get off of it successfully and this surprised me and my daughter. Together we compiled a list of what people did that they felt successfully helped them get off of the Cymbalta. We decided (with the dr who felt we were over preparing) to do all the suggestions and go off
  9. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00I9TCFBQ/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_4?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A99MZGWBBIGK9 These last me about 2 years. It would be longer if my kids would leave mine alone! But for the price, they aren't bad to have to replace.
  10. We've just recently started using essential oils and I was surprised to learn that for some people specific oils could cause seizures. With people trying to be organic more often, etc. Take a look to see what products the kids are exposed to and maybe explore if something they are using has become a trigger.
  11. I agree take the placement test and I'd also look into http://www.virtualhomeschoolgroup.org/ They have a AYOP = At Your Own Pace class for the Saxon Math textbooks. Even if you want him to do the work in a notebook, the videos by Tammy Moore and her team are great.
  12. Never10 Never10 https://www.grc.com/never10.htm I put this on all my kids computers. It has worked great. Later on when we want Windows 10 then I can remove it. But honestly, we won't make that move until this desktop needs to upgrade. Then I'll upgrade their laptops at the same time.
  13. We bought our daughter a fire proof safe to store her meds in. Like this one: https://www.amazon.com/SentrySafe-500-FIRE-SAFE-Cubic-Black/dp/B000W8J75E/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1467580946&sr=8-2&keywords=Fire+proof+safe Because of the meds dd is on, we sat down and talked with the Dorm mother about what our dd was bringing with her and she let us know that they have a safe to store larger quanity of meds. So, dd only kept 2 weeks worth in her dorm room at a time.
  14. Do you want to cross the border into Windsor?? I live outside of Windsor and would happy to come meet up with you! ;) http://alphamom.com/family-fun/activities/50-things-to-do-with-kids-around-detroit-before-they-grow-up/
  15. Or their mouths stapled shut. I'm so sorry for your lose.
