  1. My dear friend, Please get darvocet.. You must not move during the procedure or the uterus can be perforated. I had one, it hurt like heck, it came back clean and I quit smoking the next day. 7 years ago. I still remember the discomfort. I am not trying to frighten you but want you to expect significant discomfort. Please get a pain pill, have someone drive you and be still so the MD can get the sample without injury to the uterus. I am glad that you have an MD who cares so much about your well being though. I wish you the best and if it helps, I would be there holding your hand until it was over. All will be well. Have a blessed New Year. elizabeth
  2. I caught the cookie thief!

  3. Elizabeth stole 79 cookies...

    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 79 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!

  4. I thought I would leave a smiley. :) I like many of your posts and I appreciate your presence here.

  5. I wish someone would have protected me as well. Thank you for your courage in posting.

  6. Dear Cheryl, You have no idea how much that sweet note meant to me today. Thank you so much.

  7. Love your about me thoughts..."Youngish in spirit, oldish in experience and grateful for every moment every day" If I could needlepoint, I think I'd want to sew that on a pillow. :)

  8. In reference to your query regarding whether I am the hsing mother who used Websters dictionary as part of her curricula, I am not she. I absolutely lack the discipline to maintain a blog but surely admire those who do. You are one of the most gracious people I have had the pleasure of discussing important issues with. Furthermore it is apparent from the intelligence and grace in your posts that you are no country bumpkin but rather a caring, involved parent who cares deeply about her daughter's education. My dismay and frustration was directed not at you but rather the adults who choose to shield themselves from any and all areas of life that are gritty, sad and a challenge to the conscience. Sincerely, elizabeth

  9. Greetings, friend.

  10. Ah dear I think attending the hs conference is not on my agenda. I do use SWB book The Well Trained Mind and use many of her suggested texts with nothing but positive things to say about them. Sadly there is not room in my menopausal being to tolerate shenanigans from the gaybashing, flagwaving, bible thumping folk who no doubt are sincere in their beliefs. I have in my own way agreed to live and let live. Too old and too ill tempered...However, I am not an atheist just an old agnostic, doubter and seeker . I am delighted to see another freethinker around here and especially an Iowan! There are some groups in the community section for those of a more liberal bent, secular curricula etc. there are many , many lovely people here of every political and theological stripe. It is amazing how peaceful it is most of the time. I hope that if you go to DM for the conference that it is a positive experience and the food is good! That makes up for darn near anything.elizabeth

  11. Thank you so much for sending me a message! I visited your profile because I was impressed with many of your freethinking ideas.


    I am also a freethinker, and a great fan of Dawkins.


    Any chance you are going to the (religious) homeschooling conference in Des Moines next week?




  12. Hi there fellow Iowan!! I saw that you had visited my page and wanted to say many welcomes to you. This is a wonderful board filled with very helpful and kind people in the main. I always say I have been spoiled by being born and raised in Iowa . Glad to see you here and hope you will not be a stranger.



  13. This free guide to Sophies World is outstanding. I am a former philosophy major and am so humbled by what this gentleman put together . Scroll down the link and you will find chapter summaries, additional readings and the like. I hope this suffices as a guide , this is what we are using next fall. May you have a wonderful summer and enjoy a little bit of time off. I am certainly in need of some rest as well. Best wishes, elizabeth
  14. Once again your voice is one of peace and moderation. I appreciate your willingness to speak the truth as you see it even when you are "going against the grain." Standing up for your principles whatever they may be is often hard to do.

  15. I just "friended" you with my new username. Didn't like the old one...I wasn't sure I would be here long.
