  1. I would encourage you to get in touch with the International Student Office at the college he's going to attend. They would know best. In Massachusetts, almost no one ever takes the takes the driving test without paying a driver's ed school to take them to the registry for the test. If you want to head down a rabbit trail....there's an article in the Boston Globe that explains that the driver's ed schools have "a long standing and well know relationship" with the Massachusetts RVM that only benefits the driver's ed schools. 🙄 $$$$ In addition, the RMV was closed and/or had limited hours during March and April due to Covid. I don't know how far behind they are in booking appointments.
  2. Summer swim teams starts this week. Indoor pool. I should email the coach and ask about safety procedures....but I keep putting it off....
  3. I thought I read somewhere that only 40ish people of the 140 took a test. The remaining people were called daily for two weeks and ask about their symptoms. Please correct me if that information is not accurate.
  4. No, just really, really, no. I'm not "afraid" of the virus. I would find someway to hire someone to pack and ship her stuff. I live in one of the top five states. It is hugely inconvenient right now to get anything done. Everything is taking so much longer to accomplish.
  5. We know people that have tested positive. They all live less than hour's drive of us. I don't have details about how sick they got or their recovery. Dh has a friend who's uncle (60's) tested positive and will likely pass from it this week. Ds#2 mows the lawn for a family that the mom (late 50's) tested positive this week. Ds#4 had a friend on a rival sport's team whose mom (early 60's) test positive and was hospitalized for a week. A mutual friend told me. Ds#5 has a teammate (age 10) that tested positive and so did both parents (mid 30's) The grandpa told us. I'm not on social media, if I was it might increase the amount of people that I know.
  6. In our experience, dailies are the most expensive, then two weeks, then the monthlies are the least expensive. During the appointment be sure to ask for samples of the types that fits your budget. The script is written for dailies or two week or monthly. We cannot switch once we go shopping without getting a new Rx written. At the appointment, we get charged for both an eye exam and a contact lens fitting.
  7. We know a college kid who got fired from his (very easy) weekend job in mid-February cause he was late 11billion times. A parent got him the job and I think that's why it took the company so long to fire the college student. The parents only want him to have weekend job to learn to be an adult. He applied for unemployment mid March. He's getting his $50ish dollars in unemployment plus $600. His college is paid for by the grandparents inheritance. His parents cover everything else. They have not lost their comfortable incomes during this virus.
  8. Walmart cancelled my pickup order this morning. It was scheduled for this afternoon and I had reserved that spot a week ago. I used to be able to place an order Wednesday evening for pickup on Thurs. or Fri. afternoon. Walmart now books one week ahead.
  9. If you or your partner has been furloughed from a full time job would you please share your experiences? Today dh was told that all the salaried department managers are now working 4 days a week with a 20% pay cut. It's manufacturing, so no working from home. We're guessing that the hourly employees might be moved to reduced hours next? Dh is hourly. From what I'm reading, if dh hours are reduced he can collect unemployment for the day that's missing? I cannot find anything that says he's eligible for the extra $600? Is there anything else that I might be missing about the financial part of reduced hours? Thanks
  10. Search BESTEN Floorless Indoor Privacy Tent. It's about $80 comes with lights and inside pockets. They've had less expensive bed tents and they've built and hung up things. They never complain about room sharing and I'm generally frugal but it was a birthday request, so I caved. No regrets.
  11. Has anyone in a stay-at-home state had their septic pumped? Any concerns?
  12. I have two in college and a high schooler that's dual enrolled at the CC. StateU and the CC have moved to online classes. They each have at least two lab classes. They are complaining loudly about the "missing labs" or having to recreate labs at home. They are all talking about not taking lab classes in the fall if the fall semester is online. I've suggested that they wait to the last possible minute to register for the fall semester. I'm out of ideas or suggestions for them. I have huge sympathy for younger students and their teachers in traditional schools
  13. If you're not in a hot spot, I would suggest freezing the milk for future baking. Yesterday, the grocery store was completely out of gallons. I could get 1/2 gallons and quarts but no gallons. I should've taken a picture.
  14. I'm sorry. I don't post much. I'm not taking sides. I picked a quote that didn't identify the governor's party. I picked a quote that the governor didn't place blame on any specific person or agency. I just wanted to highlight the disruption in the supplies lines was still happening as of a few days ago.
