  1. I’m allergic to many, many things. And mine seems to be worse in the winter months as well. I just recently found a combo that is helping. It’s not perfect, but much better than it had been. I take an Allegra and use Nasacort spray (triamconolone). And in the evening I use Neilmed Saline Spray Nasal Wash. It’s in an aerosol spray can and you use it like a netipot where you let it flow from one nostril to the other. This seems to help a lot. And if I’m outside in the allergens for a while, I try to immediately shower off inside and change clothes.
  2. My daughter has had these for over a month now with no complaints:
  3. We stayed here: The owner lives upstairs and they were very friendly and helpful, yet didn’t “bother” us. The unit is cute and clean, perfect for our family (and I’m super picky about clean). It is convenient to everything! We never even took the bus or metro....we walked all over the city. The row houses and pocket parks and the atmosphere of the city made the walks wonderful. It’s also very safe. I was SO afraid of ending up in a sketchy area, but this was perfect! We walked home after dark often and never felt unsafe. Not to mention that DC is always bustling with people. This unit is located in Capitol Hill. This house and location helped make DC our favorite vacation to date!
  4. I just discovered and watched this movie yesterday! I adored it!! Only afterwards did I learn that there was a book first! I wish I had read the book first, but the movie was wonderful. Is it worth reading the book afterwards? I’m not one who rereads books, so I’m worried it would be very redundant for me.
  5. Just my mom. I could never call anyone else by that name.
  6. I have a 3rd grader and a 6th grader and I used Times Tales with each of them when they were in 2nd grade. I LOVE the program!!!! We used it for about a week, then did a refresher a few months later. Whenever my third grader needs occasional reminding, I just say something like "remember the tree and Mrs Week. And she immediately remembers the answer. I'll be using it again when my 4 year old reaches 2nd grade!
  7. Thank you for posting about this!!! I've been searching and searching for a typing program for my 10 year old. She tried Dance Mat and hated it.....I looked up Mavis Beacon and it didn't get very good reviews on Amazon....I ordered a book called Zoom Typing but it looks so dry and hard to follow. I'm so happy to see this! And for that price! We'll most definitely be trying this out.
  8. I have never, ever heard that term before.
  9. Thinking of you guys! Have you heard anything from your son?

    I'm looking for Heart of Dakota's Bigger Hearts For His Glory, plus the science and history books that go along with it. And the CD. Thanks!


  11. Can I play? I don't have Girl Scouts, but I have two little American Heritage Girls. My 8 year old Tenderheart is working on leveling up this year. She'll be an Explorer next year so we're trying to get her Sacajawea Award at the end of this year. So we're trying to get in some more service hours (she needs 2.5 more) and fitting in some of the requirement. And she's in the process of working on several badges......Our Feathered Friends (which we'll have to finish in the spring since there's not too many birds around right now), Home Decorating, Daughter of the King, Caring for my Environment, and Living in the USA. We just finished up the Travel Badge last week. My 5 year old Tenderheart is working on the same badges as her sister, without leveling up though. Our troop just had their winter awards ceremony last week and my 8 year old brought home 9 badges, and my 5 year old brought home 4! So proud of them!
  12. SeekingSimplicity is the cookie thief. She stole 4 cookies from the cookie jar.


    Rules of the game: if you find this (anyone except the cookie thief themselves) then post here to say "I caught the cookie thief! BUT... someone else took two cookies from the cookie jar!" That way we know this player has been caught and we'll look on another profile. Next, copy this entire post and paste it onto someone else's profile (player must have more than 100 posts and must have been active in the last month.) Lastly, change the type in red so that the numbers each increase by one. It will be easier to track that way. Please post your findings in the thread entitled SOMEONE STOLE A COOKIE! Forum Game. Have Fun!
